UPS is so awesome.

My favorite company. Ever. Period. Exclamation points. One. One.

I made a trip to the center for incredible incomptence today. Sometimes you may hear someone refer to this place as "UPS's distribution center in Huntsville". Do not be fooled. There are people who appear to be UPS employees there, but they are just incompotent people in disguise. This is my story:

My video card died in the little machine. Fortunately, it was still under warranty, 'cause I didn't want to drop the cash on a new card right yet. So I shipped it back to eVGA on RMA. They got it, and a few days later, sent me another one. It came yesterday, but eVGA had marked it where it required a signature. Since UPS will only schedule a delivery between 10:00am-2:30pm, I called customer support and told them I'd just come get it.

Since there were a few things I needed to get done today, I took off of work a little early and drove out to the distribution center in north Huntsville. I went in, gave them my address and ****, show'd 'em my ID, and all that. So the lady behind the counter went to go get my package. When she emerged from the back, she walked up to the counter and half tossed it on the counter. She didn't toss it enough apparently, it teetered on the edge, and then fell to the floor. She didn't even seem to notice and got her scanner. Then she picked it up off the floor and said, "Hope that wasn't something that could crack."

As I signed for it, I said, "yeah, me too."

After doing a few other things around town, I got home and went to install it. Little surprise, the I/O plate is bent:


With a flash

So I just filed a claim with UPS over the damage. After I did that, I attempted to bend back the I/O plate. I was successful and the card seems to work. Now I'm wondering what I need to do about the claim... :chin:

Maybe you could turn it around. If not, I could probably use an inside man to help me plan my raid.

Re: UPS is so awesome.

What I need to do is rig up a little computer in a cardboard box, complete with accelerometers and cameras to view the outside world, and ship it to a buddy of mine in California. Then let him ship it back to me. Then I could unpackage it and have a documentary on UPS's insane level of incompotence.

Re: UPS is so awesome.

Well, if this ain't some ****. When I made the claim yesterday, they said they would need to "inspect the packaging for damage". So I left the package out on the front porch, not taped up or anything. So they could inspect it. When I got home, I had a reciept stuck to the door and the package was gone. Funny thing is, the video card is in the little computer.

Re: UPS is so awesome.

USPS is great too. This is the tracking info for something I bought the other day:


The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on December 4, 2006 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later.

Click on the shipping status link to find out if the item has been delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. Please note: shipping status may not be available until the item has been delivered.
