DeadMouseTails: Snotnose: Speaking as someone expecting a new smartphone from Amazon tomorrow, that's awesome. Wonder what they would do if the plane crashed?

They tell you a plane crashed, or at least FedEx did. I used to work at a company years ago. They were behind on paying some bills to an editorial house, and since I was in the CA office, where as accounting was in the NY office, the editorial house in LA called me to see if the check had been delivered like promised. At that point I realized that FedEx hadn't come yet. I called with a tracking number (before the internet was widely available), and was told the plane had crashed because of a really bad snow storm in Memphis. Thankfully, the crash made the news, because at first the editorial house thought I was giving another excuse for the NY office not sending a check again. The crash was bad, but the pilots made it out, though from what I gathered, not many packages survived.

So you're saying they crashed the check?

I used to get 'train derailment' all the time from UPS, like every other shipment.

I just assumed it was a random excuse they used all the time.

liquidsiphon: I can relate to this. I ordered a pizza from Papa John's once and was annoyed after an hour and called to complain. He told me the driver got into a wreck and went to the hospital and they were remaking my pizza. Felt like a dick.

That's the standard excuse.
