    Fedex has got to be the worst shipping service ever

    So they somehow broke into my apartment and they delivered my $20 pair of headphones on my couch, but they couldn't also leave my brand new computer? And now they won't let me pick it up today and won't budge on trying again tomorrow at 2:00 when I will be at work? What are they going to do then? Leave it on the truck another night? Worst service ever.

    I don't believe a single word of your post.

    I thought you could pick it up from a warehouse after so many attempts, but you would probably have to do it before 5:30 or something.

    If you are not there they leave a door tag and offer you the opportunity to pick it up at their distribution center. ALWAYS. They are usually open until 8 or sometimes even 9pm. They also don't break and enter.

    This guy was there, sitting on your couch, and knows your story better than you.

    You work for UPS, your couch is on the porch and your ****** headphones didn't require a signature for delivery.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Fedex has got to be the worst shipping service ever

    I order almost everything online (except groceries) and yes, both UPS and Fed Ex tend to suck, generally. But in my experience, which is considerable, UPS is definitely better than Fed Ex.

    Whatever. I ship and receive a lot of stuff. Fedex does not break into people's homes. They also don't tell you you can't pick up your item if you're not there to receive.

    I guess I have always been lucky when I have used them. Picking it might not be the most convenient especially depending on how far you live from the warehouse but it is better than taking work off to get the package.

    Re: Fedex has got to be the worst shipping service ever

    I ship and receive things on a daily basis and it's rare to have a problem with either UPS or FedEx. If a signature is required for something like a computer, it can be a pain as you're seeing, but other than that, it works like clockwork.

    Fedex would not deliver to me on 3 occasions because of my terrifying 8 lb mini daschshund.
