Hello Everyone; Hope this finds you all well.
This is going to be a bit of a rant post, just to warn ya.
The hubs ordered new leaf springs and tires for the vacation home (aka: the 5th wheel) on either the 8th or 10th. He figured it would take a week or so for everything to come in.
He ordered tires from Walmart and they were at the Billings, Montana store on the 14th, fast shipping, easy pick up at their store. One down one left to go.
We waited and waited for the leaf springs to show up, he sent an email to the place he ordered from. They answered and said they had been delivered and gave a tracking number.The hubs checked FedEx website and sure enough they said they had been delivered on the 14th of June seven days ago.
Now FedEx has been delivering here long enough that they know where our house is, the number is at the end of the driveway and on the house clearly visible from the street. There is an abandoned mobile home that looks abandoned with boarded up windows and such that we use for storage just around the corner.
So where do the idiots deliver the leaf springs to, yep, that's right to the trailer with no house number that is boarded up. They sat outside a the back steps that are broken down and covered in moss for seven days with it raining most days. The boxes were soaking wet and the springs were starting to get rust and the bolts and brackets were also. Hubs just say's he'll throw a coat of paint on them before putting them on the trailer.
FedEx has always been a bit lazy about delivering out here with not ringing doorbells or knocking, just drop and run, even if it needs a signature. This was just the epitome of lazy workers that could tell no one lived there, but they just didn't care. I know the hubs won't send them an email, because he told the person we ordered from about it and thinks he will say something to them, but I am most definitely not that nice and will get the information from the shipment and send them a no BS assessment of their sorry ass service.
And if we have a choice of shipper I will go with UPS. I like UPS much better, they always knock or ring before they head back to their truck.
Rant completed, sorry/not sorry for being a crabby ass.
I guess I should be, and I am, grateful that we live in a small town with next to no crime otherwise the boxes would have been gone.
Take Care Everyone &
Have a Great Weekend
