I've got sixpackages scheduled for delivery today

the ups guy usually comes between 10:00 and 2:00.

So today, I take 1/2 day of vacation and arrange to do the other have from home via VPN so that I can be here when the ups driver gets here and not have to drive out to the damn airport to pick up my packages.


what time does he show up? he doesn't! not yet anyway.

sheesh.

I should have just gone to work today and saved the half day of vacation.

it's a foam mattress split across multiple boxes

four core pieces and a big hunk of memory foam for the top, then a one inch wool and cotton cover that zips around it.



At least I finally have something coming that they can't break by kicking it around and throwing it on the ground as hard as they can.

I guess they had to make up for not being able to destroy the item by being late.

supposed to be comparable to the tempurpedic mattress. I tried one of those out (just in the store for a few minutes) and liked it. They've got a 90 day return policy so if I find it's not worth the $1500 or so I'm just out the cost to ship it back. So at most it could be a $100 mistake.

oh man, that sucks

anyone know what time they mean when they say "by the end of the day"?

11:59PM?



Link Posted: 8/5/2005 4:26:22 PM EDT
I just called ups and according to sheeneequita or whatever the fuck her non english speaking name was (at least it wasn't some damn foreigner) the driver usually delivers until 7:00 pm, but the "end of day" gaurantee means 11:59pm.


So I ask, does this mean he's going to be here tonight or not?

"I don't know".

fuckers.

so I either sit here all damn night (with a high chance of not getting the delivery anyway)
or I wait until monday to get my stuff.

It was for a good friend.

I had to break it to him gently.

I lucked out, he was still at the beach when I called.

The bikini's helped him over it.
