Default Fed ex never ceases to amaze me.....

Ordered my new snowboard and a couple other things saturday, my tracking info says in transit at 12:17 est. Last friday i ordered a lens for my welding helmet that too said in transit 12:17 est. Im home all morning and only the lens shows up, tracking info on that changes to delivered. And still no board. Board info still says in transit..... How hard is it to put all my deliveries on the same freaking truck?! Great job fed ex, great job.

While I can understand your pain...you must look at the big picture and not be too self absorbed. Seeing as how Fed ex handles around 3.3 million packages per day, its any wonder your packages even ends up at your house. Listen to Louis C.K. He makes a good point at about 1 minute in.

You sir are my new hero for referencing Louie CK in a snowboarding forum. One of my favorite comics of all time!

Haha, yea I am a comic junkie. My favorite right now is Doug Stanhope, but Louis C.K. is a close second.

In my case i can understand if they came on diff days becuase the lens i ordered was from a diff website on a completely diff day. But when both tracking updates say in transit and both say 12:17 and both are from the same location then even if on different trucks they should both arive at my house (30 minutes from the departure point). Instead the lens gets to my house and the board goes past my house 2 hours away from the departure point and now must travel 1hr and 30 min back the same direction it just came.

Only way i can see there being any reason for my board to travel that far out of the way is if its on a specail truck(doubt it).

Owell, tomorow my ish better be here or fedex is hearing from me.

That's OK I've had them deliver my packages to the wrong address which was a vacant lot. Had them not deliver it to a store because they said it was an undeliverable address. Fed Ex is a joke and a half. I got in a 20 minute screaming match with a district supervisor that ended in me threatening to drive the 30 miles out of my way to the dispatch center to get my packages when I did that she called the store that was supposed to have the package delivered to and tried to file a complaint against me.

Then there's the whole they can't deliver to my home address cause they can't find it. This one mystifies me even more I live on the main road to the frigging resort, my condo building is literally right next to the road.
