Teknowaffle: Optimus Primate:
I once shipped something to my office, a radioactive source for my nephews science fair project. Along the way the box got damaged a bit, and my name was scuffed off the label.

It was the second part of a shipment, and there was no identifying information like a packing list included because it was in the first box.

I knew about it when we got a company wide email asking "who was having radioactive material shipped to the workplace?"

I was no longer allowed to have packages shipped to the office.


I once ordered a fender, core support, and bumper from a scrapyard in the lower 48 for a restoration project and had them delivered to the office thinking I would get 3 separate, easy-to-handle items.

Not what happened. Apparently it was easier just to take a chop saw and cut the entire front end off of a Chevy Apache and throw it in the back of the UPS truck. To make things worse, our corporate reception is on the 10th floor, so not only did the delivery driver have to wedge the thing into the elevator to bring it up, I had to do the same to get the thing back out of the building.

Receptionist was NOT amused. I was perma-banned from ever getting anything bigger than a manila envelope delivered to the office.

buzzcut73: PerfectFusion: I typically have stuff shipped to work, but for the iPhone5, Apple and AT&T would only ship to the billing address for the credit card.  I actually took the day off so I could be home to receive the phone, and the delivery person still just left it on the porch.  They didn't knock or anything.  The only reason I knew it was delivered was because I was checking the tracking page periodically.

/cool story

I don't even have to do that. I have a dog that absolutely hates delivery trucks. If one is anywhere on this block, whether he's coming to our house or not, the dog goes apeshiat.

Offer does not apply to Schwan's man, or mailman. They're OK. Burglars are probably OK too, as long as they don't bring a box with them.


My dog is similar. "Hey buddy, take whatever you want, but don't you DARE leave anything on the porch!"

Balchinian: Hmm....I have had 9 UPS deliveries and one FedEx delivery in the last 2 weeks. Guess which package looked like it had been run over. Hell, the FedEx guy was working out of a Budget Rental truck FFS, I am sure he had packages all over the back of that thing smashing into one another. I'm glad my item was not something breakable, but dread to think what happened to any Apple products that might have been in there.


This is typical of "peak" season. Due to the high volume FedEx (and I'm sure UPS) hires on temps and rents vehicles to use. I've seen a great ghetto FedEx where they taped a FedEx envelope to the sides of the van they rented for the season.

\\Disclaimer - I work for a FedEx company

Optimus Primate: I realize that not everyone has a nice, secure office to have packages delivered to - and I am quite sad for them. I have absolutely everything shipped to my office. A bonus is that my girlfriend works the front desk, so I get an instant I.M. as soon as it lands.

A friend in a nearby cubicle (he is a part-time DJ who orders tech gear all the time) INSISTS on shipping everything to his house, then he stresses ALL DAY LONG, constantly refreshing the tracking page and worrying about his sh*t getting stolen. He is extremely paranoid about shipping things to the office for no actual reason.

Well they are both better then USPS, I have gone down to the post office and biatched several different times because she wouldn't deliver packages to my house. They kept giving me different excuses like "your driveway is too long and there is no turn around". Well I drive up it with a 20' dump trailer and back down it just fine, I would hope that a someone who drives for a living can back down it with a car. We finally put it together that she was afraid of our goose because she started putting packages halfway up the driveway on the ground. Finally they switched drivers and the new guy is great.

UPS has "lost" two of our packages so far this week. The funny thing is that one of the packages was a camera system to prevent us "losing" things like this.

I hate, hate hate UPS, I ship Fedex whenever I can. I used to work for a company that did Fedex for our returns and UPS for our initial delivery's. The Fedex packages always made it on time to the desired location. UPS on the other hand, they would not deliver and say it was delivered, deliver to a neighbor house and not get a signature, say they got a signature but be unable to produce one. Deliver it to a business down the street, deliever it to an empty log. It was a nightmare, the only thing worse was the dealing with it when it happened. By the time UPS determined they had in fact farked up it was the next quarter.
