I hate UPS. The street I live on was brand new three years ago, but I
still have to call and give them directions every single time I order
something. I was supposed to receive a package today, but the tracking
details note that I was unavailable for a signature today which is
absolute BS since I work from home sitting 10 feet from my front door.
:mad:

I like UPS. They have always delivered my packages on the day they said
they would. And, my dad gets a package every other day from UPS for work
and he has yet to complain about their service. It must be those people
in the UPS Rochelle IL hub...

Well, most of the drivers I've spoken to said that they've been bit by
small dogs and not big ones. It's better to be safe then sorry.

wussy.

You must get packages a lot, or you live in a really small town, if your
UPS guy actually knows your dog.

Just ran across this. I think you're making a joke here, right? :)The
actual UPS hub in this area is in Rockford, a half hour north of us.

Our runway is only about 4300 ft. long so no jumbo aircraft here unless
they come down in the cornfields.

UPS aren't so bad, they only took a week to get my giraffe from
california to oxford (several thousand miles) but it took parcel force 7
weeks to send a letter from their depot 5 miles from my house to me to
tell me to pick it up. Oh and UPS shipped for $35 which is very cheap
indeed. In a bored moment i worked out a group of unicyclists working
round the clock could have actually ridden it from california faster
(presuming some equal length over land route was available).

Yeah, well the reason she barks at him is because he takes the package
and literally hits her over the head with them.

Generally, each driver has a route they do regularly. They get to know
every house on the route. The dogs stand out, if they keep you from
getting to the door. As a delivery person, you learn not to trust dogs.
Most dogs will just bark, but a few will protect their territory.

I was bitten once as a UPS driver, by a tiny little dog. I walked up to
a house surrounded by little ankle-biting dogs, all yapping at me. One
of them got my achilles tendon.
1. Annoying.
2. Harder, and it could have screwed up my walking for a time.
3. How do I know said yap dog doesn't have rabies or some other nasty
problem?
4. So don't call me a wussy.

There was another house I often went to that had three large dogs, all
barking at my door. Their circular drive went right in front of their
porch, so one time I was able to toss the package (carefully) onto the
porch without exiting the vehile. It is not my job to "experiment" with
your dogs. Of course you also don't get a yellow sticky-note on your
door either, for the same reason...

I worked for UPS less than four months, but during that time, I had
Oyster Bay, NY as my area for several weeks running. I could still
probably find any address there within minutes (without using
Mapquest).

UPS is generally very good about delivering to my house. My biggest
gripe is when they don't leave things out of sight and out of weather.
It's not that hard. Leaning up against the front door doesn't cut it.

Also I don't like when I order things online, relatively inexpensive
ones, and instead of being delivered, I get a note on my door saying I
need to sign. Why don't you tell me this up front! I'll have you deliver
it to my work, or someplace where there's always someone there to sign
for it!

I was making a joke about it being in Rochelle, IL. But, whenever I do
order from UPS, my pakcage awlays SITS in IL for at least 3 days before
I get a departure notice from the hub. But I DO love UPS... way better
than FedEx.

The UPS guy used to pick our dog up, make his delivery, and then drop
him off again :D

UPS is generally good with us... I rememebr once when I built my old
computer the motherboard was supposed to arrive here 3 days after the
processor... well, they ended up int he same transit facility and
someone was smart enough to send them both together :)
