When you pay someone for something, and they tell you that it's guaranteed, and then you don't get what you pay for, shouldn't you be compensated in some way?

I had an order that was in two boxes, shipped 2nd Day Air via UPS from San Diego to Ohio. Cost me $88 and change for 2nd Day Air.

One package was delivered, and shows on UPS.com with my tracking number. The second package still shows "In Transit" but the truck has already come and gone from my area for the day.

Now.... I called the 800 # and the rube who answers tells me that it's guaranteed. Well, no shit. I wouldn't have paid extra if it wasn't.

No package. Two hours to go until 2 Day becomes 3 Day (UPS considers 7pm the end of day).

I am going to light someone up over this.

The last time a public company fucked with me, I bought the minimum number of shares that I could so I could attend the shareholder's meeting. Then I attended the annual meeting and read my statement on the floor with everyone's names included in the incident. That's another story though... right now I just want my fucking package or my money back.

huh . . . I mostly use FedEx 2nd day Air. From Louisiana it usually makes it in 1 day. From NM it usually takes two . . . The UPS idiot was leaving my packages at the store next to my jewelry store . . . with no thought that it might be detrimental to his future employment to leave $10,000 in diamonds with someone not allowed to sign for my packages.

Unfortunately I didn't have a choice in the shipping provider because the vendor only uses UPS.

The other public company was Fed Ex incidently. Another shipping disaster.

This time, they wouldn't allow me to pick up my order at the local depot when they attempted to deliver it to the wrong address and it was refused. They had no provision to change to the correct address in the system (not my fault) and their depot had no provision for walk-in customer service.

After being refused a third time, the package was returned to the vendor (who originally entered in the correct shipping address). I was charged a restocking fee from the vendor, and all sorts of bank charges to reverse the transactions.

I went fucking ballistic.

I told the board of directors the story, everyone's name involved, and that if Fed Ex ever refused to release my packages to me again because they had 'no provision in the system to allow for a walk-in pickup', that I would file a grand larceny report with the police against the regional VP.



I got refunded all of my money for the incident, they reimbursed my trip to the shareholder's meeting, and I got a bunch of Fed Ex crap that was made in China.

You should be able to get a refund, I think.


I once got a refund from the U.S. post office, because with express mail it was guaranteed to be there next business day before 10:00 AM or something like that. I had an electronic tracking number, and the next day it showed up as delivered at 1:00 PM. I printed out the delivery confirmation (with the time) and went down to the post office and demanded my money back. They tried at first to suggest that maybe there hadn't been someone there to receive it at first, and perhaps they had needed to re-deliver it, and that was why it was late - but when I told them it was a big publishing company on 5th avenue, which obviously would have a front desk and mailroom and be open during business hours, they agreed to refund my money


Good luck !

Lately I've been having alot of trouble with FedEx Home Delivery. Sent my PM9 back to Kahr under recall. They did the work and sent it back. Apparently the tard just flagged down somebody walking around my apartment and handed the package to him. Any guesses on whether I got the package?

The best part is when I tried to get online signature confirmation:

Depite our efforts UPS doesn't run the FAA.


Maintenance Failure Blamed for Tuesday's Flight Delays

CBS5.com Staff

The FAA says its failure to do routine maintenance caused the shutdown of a critical air traffic communications system that delayed dozens of flights in the Bay Area.

The high-altitude radio outage grounded all flights in and out of Southern California for three hours Tuesday night. Air traffic controllers could see flights on the radar, but could not communicate with them.

A union representing controllers said at least six planes flew dangerously close to each other. In one instance, the union president says two planes nearly collided.

The FAA said Wednesday that workers failed to perform a regular 30-day maintenance check on the radio system. Officials said if the system is not checked, it turns off automatically.

The first words out of his mouth were, I know this is some kind of gun..... things went down hill from there...

Did I mention that they lost my upper?

I changed my mind about the M4 configuration, so I returned it to model 1 sales on roughly 8/21...they dropped it off roughly 8/27.....model 1 sales says that 1) the guy who signed for it doesn't work there, and 2) it supposedly was delivered to a dock; they don't HAVE a dock.

anyway, that was 8/27, now its 9/15, I don't have my money back, nor a credit, nor an upper.......and M1S has went up on their prices in the last few days.

Over a week ago, UPS started a trace. TODAY, they called me to get MY story, before they called M1S.

Isn't that way you insure your shipment? I'd get a written statment from M1S that they never recieved the shipment and turn it in to UPS, file a claim, make them pay for it. I always over insure my shipments just in case the price goes up. Either way ya' need to go get em' pard. Make UPS pay for their mistakes.

Alien, after re-reading my post, I should have clarified that it was the barrel and not the whole gun. I think I was still bitter at FedEx and seeing red while writing my post and left out that detail. Yup, it was only the barrel that needed recall work - but it puts my whole gun out of commission.

Glad to hear it wasn't the entire gun. I know you don't have to have things shipped to an FFL if it's from the manufacturer to the customer after warranty repair, so I considered it in the realm of possibility.

Personally, I prefer the US Postal service. They seem to be the quickest and usually cheapest when it comes to shipping. Hell, I ordered an M4 barrel from G&R Tactical last Friday. They shipped it from Virginia via USPS 2-3 day priority mail Saturday and they delivered it to me in Phoenix, AZ early Monday!

UPS pisses me off because they don't consider the first day a shipping day. If you bring it in Monday, it will NOT go out till Tuesday. To top it off, neither UPS nor FedEx consider Saturday/Sunday shipping/transit days. A couple of months ago, I ordered an RAS II and it was shipped via 3 day select via UPS. It got to Phoenix in one day, but did they deliver it that day or the day after? No, they waited till the third day to deliver it despite the UPS man having brought something else the 2nd day!

I hate UPS. Twice in the past couple months they have rescheduled shipments, and when I called to ask why the shipment has been reschelduled no one would give me a straight answer.


I had one problem with FedEx when I ordered a pair of shoes (cost was about $125). It was shipped overnight and when I checked the tracking number it said it'd been delivered. I checked all over the property and even the neighbors, nothing. I called the bastards and made a huge deal of it, telling them I wanted to file a complaint against the driver, I paid for a service and didn't get it, etc. They started a trace on it and said they'd call me back by Monday (this was on a Friday). I got a call half an hour later asking a few more questions at which time I again let my anger and dissatisfaction known to them. About a half hour after that, the door bell rings and there's the driver with the package. The idiot delivered it to the ajacent street - how the street names were confused I don't know.

I didn't care too much that I had to call them and make a big deal of it to make sure they'd do something about it, but the point is if you complain enough and keep speaking to people in higher positions you'll get results.

I had a shipment coming last week. It was scheduled on a day when we had a flood potential.

I was working the disaster center and checked the delivery notification during a down time. It said "delivery exception - internal audit". I call, they have to call me back and say that the label was ripped. I asked them to deliver it to me. They said they would. I get a call saying that they could not deliver to my area as the driver had left. So I ask where he was and they said up the road a bit. I told them to deliver to another station that was manned for the storm. I get another call back and they said that the driver did not deliver becuase the station was never manned....

"I am on the radio with them right now, I know they are there."

The manager gets pissed and gets on the phone and tells me that they cannot deal with my package and that it was going to be left somewhere.... WTF... He tells me that the roads are flooding and he cannot be sending his driver out looking for me. Bullshit. I told him that I was working the EOC, there are no roads flooded in this area, I have been in one place the entire time, the other station was manned, and the driver lied.

He back peddled a bit and apologized.

I went and got the package. The label had been cut with a knife and then part of the address ripped out . I figured out what happened. It was poring rain when the driver went by the house and he did not want to get wet. So he defaced the label to get out of the delivery.

I will be calling UPS to file a complaint.

By the way, the shipment was rain gear we needed.
