UPS is holding a box from MidwayUSA.  The driver usually comes by between 1300 and 1600.  As of current, he has not been by with my box.  What time will he be here?  Closest guess wins teh internetz.  I'll go by when UPS tracking says it's delivered.  All times in CST.  

For reference, in the box is a set of reloading dies for 8mm Mauser, along with a can of Sight Black, 200 Interlock bullets, and some .32 ACP fodder.  Reference weight 7.2 LBS.

That ain't no shit.  I see him at noon when I don't have anything on the truck, but it'll be midnight before he shows up with anything I'm supposed to get.

They are authorized to deliver and pickup packages till 11:59PM... It'll get there when it gets there.

if it's being shipped to a residence, I say 1715.

That was me yesterday...  Waiting all day for the UPS dude.  He generally comes by around noon when my roommate gets stuff.  Yesterday was around 1600 with my hockey gear that I couldn't wait to get.

They'll show up when you have an attack of Montezuma's Revenge and have to go to the crapper RIGHT NOW.

Sounds like you pissed off the wrong person.

Okay, I saw the UPS guy go past here.  Since turning left wastes fuel, they always circle around.  Instead of stopping, he just blows past here full throttle.  My shit came to town tonight, so it better be here today.  He better have blown past me to pick up a misload.  If I get skipped, I'm gonna be angry.

As of 1901, no box.  UPS has officially pissed me off.  This might wind up being my first UPS rant/draw down story.  Fuckers.

Call them with the tracking. You may have to pick it up from their Will Call. I've had to do that.

Okay, disregard.  It was delivered at 1817 PM CST.  The fuckers just hid it really well on the porch so I didn't see it.  UPS still okay in my book.

Ah. The drop-n-run. I hate that.
