Who says lightning dont strike twice...Thanks USPS

Again Hara,Thank you for the frags you resent... But our wonderful USPS struck again, This time it was so bad it knocked the top off one of the huge cups that was inside spilling most of the water... But this time,Thankfully the frags survived...Our letter carrier even asked if I wanted to refuse delivery... I think Im finished using USPS for any FRAGILE packages...

Looks like the boxes UPS dropped off at my house a few times. A few phone calls and treats fixed it though. UPS has been very good lately. I have a new delivery guy now.

Wow. Looks like they read FRAGILE and destroyed that box on purpose! Man. What a mess. They should have to be held accountable. Bullet proof box next time...

Usually helps if you say something about their mom.

From when I used to work in shipping and recieving, I was told by our UPS represenative to NOT put the fragile stickers on the box because employees deliberatly knock it around Probly the same for the rest of em

I think that any delivery service anymore doesn't take care of packages as we would like them too. But here is one that happened to my a couple of months ago. After waiting two weeks for a package from a fish store, some filters and a pump, I called them to see what the holdup was. They said everything was still on backorder. Well the next day it comes in and the box looks like it went threw WWIII. Nothing in it was usable. Call the company get a reorder and another two weeks goes by and this time the story was that it got shipped to Texas by accident. So I waited anther week for the third reorder before I just called an asked for a refund. Reefbound be glad you got your coral frags, You are truly lucky! Oh, yeah threats didn't work either thats when they made it a mission to destroy anything they see with my address on it. That company is FEDEX! But just hope you all have better luck than I do.
