Just As I Thought

Waiting for Godot? Big deal. Try waiting for UPS.

OK, so, here’s today’s update on waiting for packages. As you read earlier, I’m waiting for various packages to arrive. At the moment, I’m waiting for one from FedEx and one from UPS.
Despite the snow here, both companies listed my packages as being on trucks for delivery this morning. Bucking the odds, I got up and went to my office to await my little gifts to myself. Braving the storm and bad drivers, I arrived and waited all day. I called UPS several times, they told me that “if it’s on the truck, it will be delivered today. It might be delayed by snow, but it will arrive today.”
5pm rolled around, and I was about to give up when the UPS guy arrived – without any packages. “Where are your deliveries?” I asked. Said he: “Oh, because of the snow we’re not delivering today. Only picking up.”
Um.. OK. So, #1: they could have told me that on the phone so I wouldn’t have endangered my life going out to wait for UPS. #2: If the package was on the truck, why the hell didn’t he just bring it up? #3: If the trucks are out picking up, why the holy heck didn’t they just deliver what they had while they were there?!?! Meanwhile, not a peep from FedEx. Guess I’ll have to wait until Monday.
