Seems they still stopped short with their rebranding.They could have added a 'P' and called it 'Poops'-even more accurate.[:D]

Having said that,I had to stop-by our local Fed-Ex depot last year and I was slack jawed in disbelief at the utter chaos and lack of organisation I witnessed there.

well, they could have gone even farther, and shut the whole company down completely.[:D] I dont think that anyone wants them anyways...

so then, i guess that it is just better delivering the package yourself, because none of these shipping companies can do their job correctly.

We bought a new DVD burner and had it shipped by UPS. We were home, and it was clear that we were home. Garage open, both cars in the garage. You could hear us talking and stuff.

The delivery guy puts the package on the doorstep in the garage, and leaves. Didn't even ring the doorbell or someting to let us know.
yup. They always do that. They dont even want a signature any more. It is stupid. They are supposed to wait for one, and then deliver it, but they dont care. As long as they are getting paid. How was the condition of the CD burner? Was it broken, or disfunctional?
The DVD burner was okay. Very good condition.

I wonder why no one has brought up DHL yet. It seems like they are a good company. And they have yellow vans, not poopy brown ones.

Yea when i used to have my chameleons shipped to me they would come DHL overnight. On the box it would always say keep warm do not open live animal and it showed a picture of a snake on it since the company that shipped them only had 1 generic label. The poor DHL guy would always refuse to pick the package up out of his truck and would make me go and get it from his truck. Overall DHL is better than UPS but still not as good as FedEx.

No everyone thinks they change color to blend into the environment but that is half truth. They change color on personality and mood and also change to a solid color to increase sun absorbency to warm them up. And trust me these things hiss and bite and will put up a good fight they aint hiding from anything. overall they arnt good pets to have since they are hard to keep and are grumpy.
