Another boring post.

I checked to see where my Amazon shipment was. FedEx was supposed to deliver it today. The status said "Recepient not in." Does FedEx only deliver stuff when somebody can sign for it? UPS isn't like that. I don't know why Amazon switched companies.

I guess I'll find out when I get home.

Update: I checked the Amazon website. It says that FedEx will probably try to deliver it two more times. Let's hope somebody will be home for one of those.

As far as I can tell, FedEx's policy is to not leave packages on doorsteps. They HAVE to have someone sign for it, otherwise it goes back to a holding building or distribution location. Often times I have to go pick up my packages because they always come during the day to drop off, and... well... I work during the damn day, hello!?

Anywho, I won't rant about it. I can't complain, really. I've had packages stolen off my doorstep before. I don't think the crook was very happy with what he ended up with... A D&D 3rd Edition Dungeon Master's Guide and a copy of Transformers: The Movie soundtrack. Oh man... what a haul. 8-|

LOL Okay, so I'll probably have to go get my stuff. That's ridiculous. I don't even know where the local FedEx office is. *sigh* I may have to have Amazon send my stuff through the regular mail, as risky as that can be at times.

When you get home there should be a notice that they attempted delivery. On the notice should be a spot where you can sign for the shipment and they will leave it. If you can't do that then it should have a number or maybe a location (I can't remember which one now) that has the drop point for your area.

It's possible to have your signature put on file with FedEx and they they always drop off without someone being there. They don't like doing that though because of theft. The other hitch is that they've always been geared to ship business to business and are just now getting around to really focusing on business to residence.

All of that said, I know way too much about them and will blame my job and my wife who works there for that.

Ooo, more info. Gracias. :-) At least now I know what to do next time -- snail mail. Still, UPS rules.
