A Life Time In One Week

I found this Lunar moth this afternoon. I had never seen one before. They only live for one week. The link is interesting. I am not a bug person. At all!
But I found the link to be interesting and informative.

A few weeks ago I ordered a pair of shoes. Last Wednesday I the shoe store called me and told me that they would be shipping my shoes out the next day. Today I called to check on the shipment. I was told that Fed Ex dropped the package off at my door at ten this morning. I informed her that no the package had not been dropped off at my door. Fed Ex was called and the address was given where the shoes had been delivered 511 Washington Ave. I do not live on Washington Avenue. There is not a Washing Avenue in the town I live in! I live out in the boonies. I do not have physical address. Only a p.o. box. I was told that Fed Ex would deliver to the p.o. box. They would not in this case. Fed Ex "researched" my name and "found my address." The delivered the package to the address they "found" without calling me and informing me that the package would be delivered to a different address. The woman at the shoe store called Fed Ex again to find out where my shoes are. They are in Lawton. I do not live in Lawton, never have. But they "found' my address and shipped it to that. No matter if it was the wrong one! Fed Ex would not accept my address so the shoes are being shipped to my grandparents house. I was told they would arrive tomorrow. We will see!

What Fed Ex was ridiculous. It is their responsibility to deliver the packages to the correct address. I was more than annoyed with Fed Ex. The package had better be delivered tomorrow or I will have a long, informative nice talk with them.

Update: 4:18pm April 23. Thank you Buck for pointing out the broken link. I fixed it.

UPS has always been so good with the exception of the driver in Comanche - he was just a loser. DHL, on the other hand, has proven to be really difficult. Fed Ex is usually pretty good around here and have delivered things right to my door. But if you want to be sure and get something on time, give them your grandparent's address. We give B&S address if something is important.

FedEx CAN be a hassle. They all can a hassle, depending (as Lou notes) on the driver involved. The Brown Truck of Happiness just pulled up to my door not 15 minutes ago, delivering this month's supply cee-gars. My driver(s) are GOOD in this part of the world.

The first moth pic kida-sorta reminded me of one of these ... assuming the USAF had a "pimp my ride" program, of course.

You're moth link is broken, btw. You get "credit-info" when you click it...

And after all that, I forgot to say "GREAT pics!!" The moth pics, especially.

Inquiries said...

Lou: Up until now everything that I have ordered has been properly delivered.

Buck: Are the good because they refill the dwindling supplies? ;)
The first moth pic does look like a B-2. I wonder if the USAF has ever considered chartreuse? ;)

I fixed the link.

Thank you!

I seldom use Fed-Ex. UPS on the other hand is very reliable here where I live. The same drivers run the route for years, and they kinda get to know you. My UPS driver knows that when I am not home, he can deliver the package to my cousin's house. Not to mention that he's really cute--but young.

Cool moth.

Inquiries said...

Becky: I have not had much experience with Fed Ex either. I will not use them again!

I want to meet your UPS driver!

Perfection: It is!
