space1999: I saved for months to get that for my daughter.This is why poor people stay poor. They buy stuff they don't need and can't afford.
meanmutton: space1999: I saved for months to get that for my daughter.This is why poor people stay poor. They buy stuff they don't need and can't afford.Setting aside a small portion of one's budget to save up for a big purchase is wrong now?
space1999: meanmutton: This is why poor people stay poor. They buy stuff they don't need and can't afford.Setting aside a small portion of one's budget to save up for a big purchase is wrong now?I did say, "they don't need". An Android tablet is a luxury item, especially for a child. If you have to save up for it, then you can't afford it.
Rincewind53: I've never had a bad experience with FedEx or USPS.I have had multiple "rip my hair out because of frustration" bad experiences with UPS.What can Brown do for me? Die in a Fire.
aimtastic: I think UPS keeps delivering my packages to an unknown, honest but lazy neighbor. Tracking shows the package was delivered on Monday? It shows up on my porch Thursday.
Sum Dum Gai: Also, for those who have neighbors with sticky fingers - move. This isn't the norm, and do you really want to live around people who would rob you?
Cthulhain: I have a sneaking suspicion the FedEx freight driver is sitting at home playing WoW with my card right now.
Jae0o0: UPS almost never delivers the packages right. I keep getting packages for the 536 house down the road when my house number clearly has 530. My packages get delievered, but arent on my porch (I'm at home all day so I never miss deliverys), and then a few hours later a neighbor or someone from across town will bring it over.I don't think UPS even tries.
iheartscotch: aimtastic: TedCruz'sCrazyDad: Porn?LOL, no.But that reminds me of the stories my husband tells me about when he worked at a used CD/DVD/game store and dudes would come in, buy a used porn DVD, then come back an hour later to sell it back. Ewww.Unless things went very wrong; I'm not seeing how the box or disk would rate an "eww" on the nasty-o-meter. I could see a "dude, really?". We're talking about used DVDs, not used sex dolls.
Sum Dum Gai: Something fishy about this story.UPS wouldn't drop a package into a full trash can just for the "don't make the customer dig this out of the garbage" aspect, and if the trash can was empty, it's already been picked up and they aren't going to come by again and take it out another time.
They should have gone with the tried and true, guaranteed to keep your stuff safe, "stick everything under the door mat" technique.
