you messed it up. and there are blackhawks flying over my house every hour getting people out of the moutian towns. you sir, did not have a bad day. call them and tell them you may be a day late because thousands of people are without homes and 200 are missing, making your parts late to your door. I bet they have seen the news in the last 3 days.
I know this isn't a life or death situation. You don't need to try to humanize me. I feel bad for people here who are having real issues with the weather. I also know some of them personally, so the difference isn't lost on me.
OP, do you know how inane you come across in this thread?
YOU gambled $450 that a part that you desperately needed would arrive the next day.
YOU failed to pay a measly $15 for Saturday delivery.
YOU blame UPS for an issue beyond their control and YOU blame them for not delivering on a day that YOU did not pay for.
... and to top it all YOU posted this thread in ATOT ... where you come across as being a childish, whining buffoon.
... and your client had to save YOU from your own mistake.
This thread should be saved as a Legendary Thread to posterity. I know I'm not going to forget it for a long time.
Not much of this is relevant in context, so I'm not going to bother with specifics. I admitted I took their courier service for granted. People make mistakes, so I'm not really sure what else you wanted. I posted to vent and also to get suggestions. I'm glad I did, actually, because I got one that I hadn't considered which solved my problem. I will say one thing, though: I didn't skip the $15 fee because I was too cheap to do it. It just didn't occur to me that this would become an issue since I've never run into it in the past. Also:
This is a bit of an unfortunate situation that isn't really UPS's fault
Since that may not have been clear enough for you, try this one:
I don't blame UPS for anything that happened at this point (I still wish they would have been able to do more like I said in my OP, but I also still recognize this wasn't their fault). I've never had an issue with them in the past and I don't necessarily count this incident as a strike against them
