Stop standing up so fast James!

Thanks! He actually started to get dizzy before even standing. I get dizzy as well if I sit up or stand up too quickly. It is a side effect of our blood pressure medicines and maybe our cholesterol medicine.

OK, I'm visiting cranky town right now. I heard the dog bark so I went to investigate and there was a UPS truck in front of my house. YAY! My new phone arrived as scheduled! Happy happy! BOO! As I opened the door the freaking truck drove AWAY!!! I ran out (barefoot I might add) waving at the driver but either he didn't see me or he was late for his next stop and kept going. The sticky note says next delivery attempt will be Monday. *#&$&*^*&!!!!! I am working all day Monday!!! I phoned the service line and tried to get them to turn the dude around but to no avail. I just know I'm not going to see that phone for a week or more. I'm CHOKED! My doorbell never even rang, I checked it too to make sure it was working and it was. Jerk. I am NOT happy with UPS. This is not the first time I've had issues with them. Fedex is going to get all my business.

There's a reason they are called UPS (oops)

Clearly! I didn't have a choice this time about how they sent the item, but oh boy you can bet people are hearing about this! UPS called me a couple of times and HOPEFULLY my DH will be able to pick up my package at their depot tonight. Otherwise the next time they would be able to "deliver" would be Monday and I'm working a day shift on Monday. ARGH! They were apologetic, and they told me the driver will be reprimanded. Big whoop! That doesn't help me get my package. If he'd rung my doorbell he could have saved himself a lot of aggravation. Meh! I'm calling the company who used them too and let them know how poor the service is. I think it reflects badly on a company that has an incompetent agency handling their customer service.

OK, done venting now. I sure was mad this afternoon! LOL!

I completely agree with you, Alix. I've had to chase down a package too. Kmart had my account open, all they had to do was keep my address the same as it was, but she copied down what I told her and my apartment # did not get on there. I, did not have authorization to get them to change it!

At one point they wanted me to come pick it up. I don't have transportation to do that. I paid for it to be delivered to my apartment, and I finally did get it delivered, but it frazzles you.

Yep. We're in the middle of a blizzard now too, so my DH is driving in this crap. It was clear as a bell when that moron stuck that note to my door.

I amazes me that he had stuck the note on your door, but couldn't be bothered ringing your doorbell.

I hope your hubby stays safe.

Have had this happen several times. Maddening! Shrek and I had ordered several things and after being home all day, I opened the door to take some trash out, there were four packages just sitting on the doorstep...nobody had rung the doorbell. The next time I was expecting a delivery from UPS, I stood outside waiting around the delivery time and caught the guy. I told him the next time he left my packages sitting on the doorstep, he would be reported for negligence...ring the bell...someone is most certainly home!

What with package tracking, I make sure one of us is home when a delivery is due.

here they give on knock on the back door or one ring of bell on the front door. then they just leave the package. watch guy deliver to my next door neighbor yesterday. he threw package on porch. hit the door once with his clipboard and left. but then the postman does the same thing with something to big for box. guess you are supposed to just wander out and find them.

All we can do is keep reporting them. It's a big business. None of them can afford a bad reputation.

Maybe it's time for a new company. One that will go the extra to make sure I get what I ordered delivered on time.

One of the things about these people is that they get the stuff here earlier than forecast. Maybe they could be more precise about arrival times.
