Oh ffs, FexEx...

Would someone please explain to me what, exactly, I'm supposed to do with this...


This is a picture of a package that was delivered by FedEx this morning (and part of Chewbi's face). It's sitting on the top step, right outside my storm door. Since we don't have a deck, just stairs, when I open the door this package is going to fall 3.5 feet to the ground. Since I'm pretty sure it's the stick vacuum I ordered (though why it would ever need such a big box, I have no idea), punting it to the ground isn't a good idea.

I am sooooooooo pissed.

What's worse, the FedEx guy didn't even knock to see if we were here. It just tossed it onto the steps, which I wouldn't have heard had Ani & Chewbi not had an epic shitfit, barking at the door. And, I can't go out the back door and around because the back door is blocked on the outside by a small tree that the groundskeepers allowed to grow up through my back steps. It's okay, though, since the back door has a bad habit of opening all by it's lonesome. So, not only do we never open that door, we couldn't even if we wanted to.

Which means I have two choices. I can stay trapped in the house while that box sits on the stairs waiting to be stolen or I can risk breaking it. I suppose I could complain to FedEx, but I don't see what good that's going to do. It isn't as though they'll come back and fix this problem. I seriously wish Wal-Mart would allow me to choose a shipper. They have a tendency to ship half my order with UPS and half with FedEx. While our UPS packages always get here without a problem, it isn't the first time I've had a problem with FedEx.

Might just have to stop ordering from Wal-Mart. That should fix any future problems, but won't do a thing for this one. Whatever else I do, even if it doesn't do any good, I think I'll complain to FedEx. They can't be doing this.
