Now, I don’t begrudge the time it takes to get across the country, considering the weather issues. But putting it on a truck three times, not bothering to deliver it, then returning it to the warehouse? Pardon my French, but WTF is that about?

This is my fault, I guess. I’m too lazy to cancel my FedEx account and move to another service. Meanwhile, that package is still hanging out on Eisenhower Avenue. Guess my family will have some things to open AFTER Christmas.
