It takes skill to be this incompetent....

As you may or may not have noticed, I have no great love for UPS. IMNSHO, they rank somewhere below the USPS as far as a delivery service goes. All things considered, I've gotten better service from the USPS than I have from UPS. Still though, they usually manage to get my stuff to me... eventually.

Well, I was waiting eagerly for a few books from Amazon.com (coming in two different shipments due one of those weird somewhat unexplainable Amazon shipment splits) and I randomly thought to check on their status. They should have been delivered today. Nifty....

BUT

Guess what.

Exception: No Such Address

You know, I'm halfway tempted to march down to their offices tomorrow with a picture of the damn house and a map. If I were in a crankier mood (and I had less of a life) I probably would. Apparently my last little chat with them is wearing off. It may be time to rip someone's head off. I happen to be expecting another package tomorrow so I'm going to call them up in the AM and make sure that they don't pull this on me again.

Still though, how can they not find the fucking address? It's only on the front of the house in 5 different spots (once on each part of the circular driveway, once on a big rock, once on the mailbox, and once on the fucking house). Not only that, but they just delivered something here not even a week ago. That's the one saving grace. At least they got my camera to me fairly promptly (i.e. on the scheduled delivery date)... Although that time I found it amusing that they'll require a signature for say a package of 3 DVDs, but they'll happily drop off a small box with a not-terribly-cheap camera and a few other random computer bits at the front door. A cardboard box mind you.... on an overcast day.

Bleh.

Oh, and for the record, I didn't vote today. Collapse )

Something to improve my mood...

In 10 days we will close on the house.

In 17 days I should be getting the keys to the house

In 24 days I'll be unpacking all my stuff and seriously settling in.


Oh and wrt to my musical musing from Friday, I found the song I was looking for (see current music)
