Yes, I am still pissed.
maybe you could try this....




Sorry for your loss. they always drop the box in my garage. the only time I have it shipped to work is if I don't want the SHMBO to find out about it.

I can definitely help you out there. I've got a 10 month old pooper! I'll save them up for about a week and then I'll send them out to you.......via Fed-Ex. PM me with your address.

But seriously, that really does suck. Keep us posted on the outcome. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

People really have to have some ballz to walk that far onto your property to take a package. They have to be local to know you're def not home. Baseball bat to the skull is in order.

I don't know if this is possible for you but often times if I have a big ticket item shipped I will have it shipped to my work, that way I don't have to worry about a box sitting on my front porch all day. Having to sign for everything I mail order just isn't feasible for me so shipping to work is the best option.

Can't blame you. I'm in the middle of challenging some charges against my company's bank card. All three placed over the Internet at sites the don't require the code on the back of the card.

Man, I just checked on a copper order I made, saw that they tried to deliver it on friday, but didn't because no one was home. I was a little bummed that they didn't leave it, but after reading your story, I'm lucky that DHL was on their game.

If you haven't already done so, make 2 calls. First one is to place you ordered from telling them what happened and asking when you can expect to see the new shipment. The 2nd one to your CC company no matter what the seller says.

FedEx to blame for sure on this one. If nobody is home they could have easily left the ticket for re-delivery. I've had to head to UPS and FedEx many times after work to pick up and sign for a package.

As far as your hops, watch craigslist fo a few days or even eBay. Should be easy enough since you know the brand and weight. Proving them a theif would be hard enough though, but the cops may help if the person you target has history with them.

I sympathize with you.

On a lighter note, many years ago when I was creating children, the local midwife used to visit all the expectant mothers in the area on her bicycle and collect urine samples. She got one from SWMBO in a Schweppes ginger ale bottle. On the way to the lab, she stopped off at the post office to buy some stamps, leaving the sample in her handlebar basket. It was stolen while she was in the post office!
In this case, I think the thief got what he deserved.

Ha! Oooooh, I am not ready to go to jail for this but, the idean is enticing. "Honestly Officer, he walked right through my door. We DO have the Make My Day Law here."

Yeah, I think it was a school kid walking home. I have a High School that has "issues" not but a few miles away. Still waiting to hear from both the supplier and Fed Ex about the outcome. Good news is that the package was insured for the value of the contents. I just dunno how long it will take Fed Ex to process the claim and for the supplier to make good.
