UPS Is Awesome, Sort Of

December 23, 2006 psipsina

Procrastinating, I shipped a bunch of stuff by UPS on Tuesday.  They wanted, like, one million dollars to guarantee Christmas delivery, and I just couldn’t see paying that, no matter how badly I wanted stuff to arrive on time.

So I said, “Just ship it ground.”

I just got a string of e-mail notifications that three of the four packages have arrived.  The fourth, which is going farther, just simply ain’t gonna make it until next week, which isn’t such a disappointment, since I wasn’t expecting it to arrive on time anyway.

Mostly, I think this is awesomely cool – the stuff got there on time.

Slightly annoyed that they tried to charge me extra money when it was gonna get there on time anyway, but hey, they are still better than the Postal Service.

I shall spare everyone my customary rant about the USPS.

Merry Christmas to all!
