[rant] UPS is Annoying, Delaying my Drobo Mini

Claims adverse weather in Commerce City CO this morning.

Low was 27
It was party cloudy
no fog
wind a 7mph.

I claim BS especially since UPS had no issues delivering during the recent snows here in colorado they were out just like I was driving around.

I think it was weather at one of the hubs.

One was adverse conditions but it did not come from Rockford, but another package that was in Indy read "MEch failure on railroad flatcar".

So now I got 2 packages that are running behind sheesh.

A week and a half ago I had a computer shipped from apple.com
Had a FedEx tracking number and followed it all way to town
I even printed out the FedEx signature release form and left for driver

By coincidence my American Express card got compromised and they Fedex'd
A replacement

Both arrived same day, delivered by UPS...

Meh, so today I go to the UPS Store where I keep a mailbox for my business right before close, box is still not there. Worse the owner said UPS came in and picked up only the air mail boxes, and never came back and did any deliveries. She said I was not the only person with overnighted mail from Wed not showing up.

My Fedex'd overnights came in perfectly fine, and their hub was in the middle of that blizzard.

FedEx is mostly non union. UPS is not.

Which may explain why I get such better service from Fedex. Ever since that strike in the early-mid 90's that sent me to Fedex in the first place, UPS has gone downhill in terms of service and their prices are now WAY higher than their competitors. The only one worse than UPS is the USPS which has their awesome 2-3 day (but it will really get there when it gets there with tracking that never works, no signature required even though you paid for it) service.

After missing my noodles delivery, now my iMac has missed a "connecting flight" with UPS. UPS sucks. I wish Apple had stuck with Fedex for this.

And yet my experience is the opposite with FedEx and UPS. My UPS guy is reliable and comes within a 15 minute window everyday and I have not once had a destroyed package. I can say without any exaggeration that 9 out of 10 parcels I get from FedEx are damaged and in some cases, badly. It seems somewhere in the FedEx chain they are handling packages like airlines do luggage. As for when the FedEx guy will turn up, well that's anyone's guess.
