UPDATE: Apparently the local UPS office is in the dark ages. They don’t have the capability to reach out to me to solve this problem via email. How awesome is THAT? Idiots.
Several weeks ago, a UPS Driver delivered a package to my home. It was a 47 pound package! Not light. I appreciate that they handle packages of this weight. Except the driver leaned it against my storm door which opens OUT. I had to exit my house through the back door and walk around to remove the package from my door so I could get it in the house.
I though this was a one time mistake. Apparently I was wrong.
The second incident happened yesterday (September 15th). While a MUCH smaller package, the UPS driver put it in front of my door (had to use the door to push it out of the way) and “hid” it under my door mat. I’m not sure what compelled him to do this. It didn’t “hide” anything.
So as I normally do I go to the UPS Facebook page to express my displeasure. They of course don’t allow photos to be uploaded to their page. So I put it on a cloud server and provided a link.
The replied that “their system” doesn’t allow photos or links on the Facebook page. WRONG. It’s not your “system” its your settings on your Facebook page.
But yet it worked.
I have a corporate Facebook account as well as a personal. So I checked the UPS Facebook page and the post isn’t there. Go figure. Just so you know corporate Facebook accounts have the option of “hiding” posts that they don’t want the general visitor to see. So they hid my post.
As you can see I am not top on the list.
I mentioned this to them on the post (which I as the poster can still see) and they completely ignored me and told me to email firstname.lastname@example.org which I had already done.
I order a lot of stuff from Amazon and other vendors who insist on using UPS to deliver their products to me. I truly wish I had the option of choosing which carrier they used because given that option, that brown truck would never stop at my house again. Ever.
I realize that delivering packages is not rocket science and that it really shouldn’t be that difficult to hire a minimally intelligent person to drive a truck and put boxes on a front porch. But apparently the reasoning skill is lost on at least the 1 or 2 drivers that deliver to my home.
Below is the conversation on the post that you can’t see:
