Those springy things are the devil. I got drunk int Italy and found the park next to my house. Saw one of those spring things and couldn't resist. I was having a blast until I fell over and let go of the spring toy of death. Stupid thing swung fully the other way and bounced back, slamming me in the nuts. Hurt like hell. They are evil play things.

And ground shipping sucks. But, if I don't need it right now sometimes I'll forget I ordered it and it's like a random present in the mail when it shows.

Just sent off a diff. carrier from WA to NM. UPS was $44 due to dimensional weight and a 'remote destination' fee or some such, Parcel Post was $24. Buyer chose Parcel Post, ETA 1 week.

I usually choose the balance between cost & speed and always communicate shipping methods and costs with the buyer.

Really? Mine were sent in a flat rate box. Got them real quick. I am in the same state though.

I use first class for all of my glasses packages unless they need them within 5 days. Then I use a "small flat rate box". The cost different is a couple bucks so it's worth it for me over time to use the cheaper method.
Anything less than 1lb i'll continue to ship via USPS if I want it to arrive in a timely fashion.

I have decided that all of the shipping companies have their issues. Today I am upset with UPS because they wouldn't ship me a package with insurance unless I was to be home to sign for it. I have a job. Luckily I have tomorrow off, but I also have to go to a junkyard an hour away at some point, but I have no idea when the UPS guy usually comes, so I don't know if I should make my trip in the morning or the afternoon, and of course they won't tell you if you call. Just leave the stupid package on my porch, I live in the woods, nobody is going to steal it!

yes, becuase you sent it priorty and not first class. noob.


UPS wouldnt leave a package out for me tuesday. I called and complained, as the tracking said it was attempted, but no one home to sign. Package was not signature required and UPS drivers ALWAYS leave me ----. They gave some bs ---- about how he cant leave a package that's signature required and i said it wasnt. then they asked for my door tag info where I explained he never left one. They got in touch with the driver and apparently he "used his discretion" and didnt feel comfortable leaving the package and would not come back that day.

He redelivered on wednesday with a second package i was expecting. I heard him drop the packages down and knock like he always does. BUT still was about to leave a ------- door hanger for the second package. I was home when he showed up and opened the door...he's the kicker: he still made me sign for the second package.

I was like this isnt signature required.

he responded that my building isnt secure and he cant leave packages.

when i questioned why he was leaving the other package as well as the other ones at the other doors in the hallway, he couldnt give me a straight answer. he was just pissed i caught him lying being a lazy ---- on tuesday and didnt bother delivering the package.

of course I called back to complain, but they dont give a ----.

FedEx often doesn't even knock at my house. I'll be home all day, then open the door to leave and there's a package on the porch. Thanks guys.

Same, I walked out yesterday to find a package stuffed under the mat. I could have stepped on it.
