God... dammit... UPS.



Wake up. Shower. Eat.

Check discord. Dig around to try and confirm something while I'm writing another letter for the show staff.

Remember that I haven't checked my mail or RSS today. Fire up Thunderbird. There's an email from yesterday afternoon.



"Dear T Quinch,

Thank you for shopping at!

Your order has been delivered. Please see below for details. "



Nobody told me when I got off work yesterday and it's not like it would be like them to forget.

Check the email for a depot location or a contact number. Nope, nada.

Open the front door, and there it is. Four huge-ass boxes with Newegg logo on them.

Sitting on my goddamn stoop.

Since yesterday.

About a thousand dollar's worth of computer hardware just...

Sitting there.


Words. Cannot. fucking describe.

You're lucky in a way. When my wife gets packages through FedEx, we have to call up all the people in the area with the same *first name* as her, on the off chance the FedEx person delivered the stuff to them. It's happened three times now, the FedEx driver just happens to know a Kathy or Cathy or something in the same town and off the package goes to them...

I'm pretty sure this is illegal in my country. Someone from the house needs to sign for every package delivered to my home. If I get a package trough regular mail, I have to go pick it up and show my ID (anybody else can pick up my package provided they show a notarized permission).

Most couriers call just before delivery to check if someone's at home to pick the package up. One company sends an SMS indicating one hour window of delivery.

I think that if the driver decided to leave the package outside like this, he would be responsible if it got stolen, since there is no signature of the recipient.

Well, one can hardly claim they're anything but professional. When they lost my wedding ring {to be used at said wedding} they wasted no time trying to charge for the service of losing it.

Just yesterday, I was in the kitchen making my lunch. (Soup, if anyone is interested!) I had the door open, and the screen door locked, enjoying the breeze through the house. I heard a slight nose out front. I looked out front and saw a FEDEX truck driving away. The driver didn't knock or anything. He just tossed the large soft plastic pouch (It was a light jacket I ordered) against the screen door and walked away! The house was totally quiet. He didn't knock, say a word, breathe heavy, or anything! I was mad, and called to complain. If I didn't have the door open, I wouldn't have heard it, and it would have sat there for hours! I wasn't expecting it for another day! More likely, I would have seen someone else wearing my new jacket!
