Never use FedEx. I tell people this all the time, and I just had myself proven correct once again!
I ordered a bunch of stuff from Dr. Fosters and didn't bother to check who their shipper was... Sure enough a full week's gone by and I haven't seen anything. (I should mention that I live pretty close to Dr. Fosters) So I call the store and they give me the tracking number... and it's FedEx. I knew immediately that I was in for treat! So I track the order on their website and this is what I get:
NO SIGNATURE FOUND
Delivery Status: Delivered
Delivery Location: Middleton
Signed for or Released By:
Delivery Stop Number: 080

E-PDI Date: 12/30/2003
Est. Delivery Date: Delivered
Delivery Date: 01/02/2004

The detail is amazing don't you think? So I call Fedex and they tell me it was delivered on 01/02/04 at 12am. That's right, 12am... I asked if they normally delivered at 12am and they went to check some things... after 10min of hold music they tell me that the center in my town is closed but they will call me tomorrow between 8am and noon. When I'm not home of corse. Then she tells me that the package was marked as "Damaged in transit"
So thats FedEx for ya... not only did they lose my package, they destroyed it as well. This is not the first time FedEx has screwed up a delivery on me... But it's definitely the last.
