Finally figured out that I needed to print, sign and tape the delivery release to my front door. According to the tracking, the package was supposed to be delivered yesterday. I stayed home all day anticipating the delivery. It never showed up. Now the status says "Pending - Delayed".

 

Did the delivery truck fall into a black hole? Where the hell is my package? I berkeleying despise FedEx.

Today the inevitable finally happened. Amazon set a package on the driveway outside my garage door and I backed over it a bit. Fortunately I actually pay attention and stopped before the contents were damaged, but seriously. Don't set a package where cars drive. I have a front porch and a front door.

Ordered from RockAuto, paid for next business day shipping

Nope. It sat in Indianapolis for 14 hours and didnt get it until after I was wanting it here - was wanting it before an alignment.

They had no answers outside of, "we're dealing with issues caused by the hurricane"
me - "What hurricane?

-The big one"

me - WHICH?"

"Ida"

me - "didnt that hit three or four months ago? Youre telling me that youre still struggling with this and it's not even listed on the places my package went to"

On Saturday, my daughter ordered a new iPhone 13 directly from Apple. Today, FedEx delivered us an empty box. 

We called Apple to start the proceedings to get a replacement. The lady on the phone made it sound like they're going to just ship one out to us, which will be great if it happens, but I am suspicious that we're going to end up fighting FedEx on this thing. The delivery lady handed me the box, I asked if I needed to sign for it, and she said "no". But the tracking info says I did sign. Fortunately, I have the whole interaction on video from my Nest camera.

So, I guess we'll wait and see.

Every delivery person in the world that comes to my house leaves the boxes on my large front porch.

FedEx chick leaves today's RockAuto box in the driveway. at the end of my 3 foot walkway. 6 feet from the porch.

In. The. Driveway.

I'm not even surprised anymore.

We've had that happen a few times lately. Our house is on a corner lot, so depending which street the delivery is on, the driveway is much shorter. But there is also a sidewalk from the driveway to the front door and from the front door to the other street. 

What really annoys me is if they drop it in the driveway, depending how long it takes to get the notification, we have no idea it's there. When they deliver to the front porch, the Ring camera lets us know basically immediately.

I live in the country, with a longish gravel drive then it opens up to a lot where you turn around and where we park. You can throw the package in the yard and not even get out of the truck and we can see it from the house. But they throw it in the  middle of the lot just waiting to get run over. Then the dog thinks it's a chew toy but I guess that's not their problem.

Just to spread the love a little bit, yesterday the UPS guy dropped a box of ordinance that I ordered onto my front, paver block porch from waist height.  Not like it isn't overtly marked or anything ...   Lucky he didn't get a rather nasty surprise, I suppose.

I would hope they know what ORMD means on the box.....  they are supposed to know.

I was getting up to get a glass of water and saw the FedEx truck pull up to our house on the driveway side. 

He made his toward the door, then just threw the package on the ground in front stoop. So if I hadn't seem do it, it would likely still be sitting on the walkway up to the door.

My complaint is wrong delivery. Lately I come home, pickup a package and go deliver it to the neighbor it was meant to go to.
