I'm growing more and more convinced that the Consumerist is actually a troll site.

99% of the shiat I'm asked to sign for isn't worth signing for. Mortgage papers? They'll leave those on the stoop to get rained on. But goddamn if they won't make me sign for that $2.15 USB 3.0 cable.

I don't understand why the delivery companies don't jack up the price on signature-required packages (at least those destined for residences). The re-delivery rate and labor costs for those must be through the friggin roof.

Man ask whut

I just buy everything on Amazon prime. They never require a signature.

"Man ask to give" must be the new "Pricipal caught sayof"

Headline make me confuse and mad!

Man ask I love you long time

How about he just tell his neighbors to have stuff ship to their office? I actually kinda admire the Fedex guy's initiative here, although the "snippiness" is unwarranted.

Copypasta that with a The Onion logo and I would not have been able to tell the difference.

That headline me so confused to ask meaning what is was.
 
2012-08-23 04:51:17 PM  
Saying, "No, I'm not taking my neghbors' packages, and stop asking" is really difficult.
 
2012-08-23 04:51:18 PM  
I don't see why people would be upset at the customer. If I don't know someone, I'm not going to walk down the street to bring them a package. Who knows what they would think/do? Yeah, a majority of folks are nice, but, with my luck at least, I'd probably get shot at.

/company delivered a package to my old address, which was two doors down
//went to new neighbor to ask if I could have the package, which had my name on it
///took a half an hour to convince them I wasn't "spying"
///the package was a photo album
 
2012-08-23 04:51:27 PM  
that headline made me feel all dirty inside.

How about just telling the FedEx guy "no" and then laughing and shrugging it off when he acts like a dick. The FedEx guy isn't your friend - he works for a company that does business with you.

I suppose being an adult is hard for some people though.

"Man ask" ???

Subby, what the hell is "man ask?"
 
2012-08-23 04:54:14 PM  
Normally Consumerist seems to be much butthurt about nothing, but I'm on this chick's side.
 
2012-08-23 04:54:33 PM  
The guy b*tching about getting his package too soon was a whining ass. This chick has a legit complaint.

One she could solve easily, but legit.
 
2012-08-23 04:55:47 PM  
I assume after he wrote this article he went outside and yelled at a cloud.
 
2012-08-23 04:57:09 PM  
Just tell the FedEX to stop doing it. Pretty simple. If he complains, call FedEX and complain that you aren NOT drop box for your neighborhood.

Simple. The man ask package house to the get it to. Man said yes then now no now cause man came too often which singing was for package. Now no.

A misspelling of "man ass", one of the things Subby doesn't like about porn.
 
2012-08-23 04:58:04 PM  
they should just be glad the Fedex driver didn't just throw the package over the fence like a few months ago.
 
2012-08-23 04:58:29 PM  
Is the fail tag for the headline or the article?
 
2012-08-23 04:58:32 PM  
I hate to agree with the consumerist, but i won't sign for shiat unless i live with you. I don't mind people i live with signing for me either. It's a non issue when it's kept in house.

I would never do this shiat, or put up with a snippy postman who wants me to do that bullshiat.

I don't know what the package could be, and as far as i'm concerned not touching their mail is right up there with picking up my dog's crap on rules to be a good neighbor.

Yeah. She should just sign all future packages Weedlord Bonerhitler and see if anyone gets the message.

One of the benefits of living in a doorman building is that this situation can't occur. The drivers leave all the packages at once, the doorman signs for all of them and flags the mailboxes so we know there is a package waiting.

The opposite situation did occur however. UPS insisted that they attempted to deliver a package and left a sticky note on the door. I had to move up through 2 levels of CSR before they I got to someone smart enough to understand that the driver never gets past the lobby so it was impossible for her to have left a note on the door. The first 2 CSRs were really snitty using an exaggerated tone of voice "SIR" implying that I was lying.

Still don't know what happened but the package showed up 2 days later.

This strikes me as odd. For one thing it seem this is probably illegal. I would have to imagine there is some kind of law that mail must be delivered to the intended recipient/address and not some random person who lives across the street. If I was waiting around several days for an important package only to learn that it had been handed over to a neighbor 2 streets over who I had only met twice I would be pretty angry. The mail comes to me, if I'm not here leave a note and come back tomorrow. For another thing what kind of spineless schmuck is this neighbor that she is incapable of simply telling the delivery driver no and instead has to send a long rant to consumerist. The next time he tries to hand a package off to you tell him you are not taking them anymore and he has to deal with it himself. If he gets any kind of attitude at all tell him you're going to call his employer and make a complaint. Since I would imagine he is not following proper procedures by giving packages to neighbors he would probably change his tune pretty quickly. This is such a non story, it's not even a "consumer" issue as there is no exchange of goods/services taking place, it's an annoying delivery driver who keeps bothering you, deal with him like any adult would.

You would be correct about it being illegal if it was the USPS. But since FedEx doesn't answer to the Postmaster General, they can do wahtever they want. It's notconsidered mail when it goes through a private carrier.

UPS, FEDEX, etc do not deliver "mail" they deliver "packages or "documents"
That allows them do to all sorts of things that the Post Office can't.
like pawn deliveries off on your neighbors, or open and repack your boxes.
 
2012-08-23 05:12:52 PM  
In that position, I would just tell the driver that it would be $20 for my signature. Either he pays, or I don't sign.

I liked it better with "singing".

True, she could do that. But given his attitude towards the end of the article, I would be afraid of the guy trashing or "losing" packages meant for me if I told him to bugger off, even in a polite way.
