Default FedEx: When you don't give a rat's patootie when it gets there

I have a package coming that was scheduled for delivery Friday. Well, Friday, it arrived at Lewisberry, PA, at 7:58 AM. It departed at 11:52 PM. New date was Saturday. Well, it arrived at Lorton, VA around 6:00 this morning. It was put on a truck for delivery. It was taken back off the truck at 10:27 AM and is now scheduled for delivery TOMORROW. Any bets on what day next week it actually arrives, or if it even arrives at all?

I think the other carriers all pay FedEx to be this lousy to make themselves look better.

I was looking forward to trying out that lens today. I just hope that whoever makes the FedEx executive's birthday cake puts in a cup and a half of MSG rather than sugar by "accident"...

Hopefully you will have it within 10 days that's how long it took me to get a pin pointer from Plainfield CT to where I am in Ct about 80 miles ...it went on quite a trip around the states up here...

80 / (10x24) = 1/3mph! Are they using box turtles now?

They all have good and bad days. I have a package coming via usps priority mail.
Tracking still says it's on time and will be delivered today before 9:00pm.
It's not even in my state yet..

Even after the holiday season all the delivery companies are still overloaded due to COVID and all the ecommerce stuff.

i couldn't agree with you more! and as if the company I work for doesn't have more than enough on the go, we've been doing "overflow" from the other companies!!
