Well, if these bastards screw my brewing plans this weekend, I'm going to stab them. I'm on the phone with customer service right now. Supposedly they delivered my grain and WLP099 several hours ago. Only problem is, they didn't. So where did the halfwit drop it off at, and why did they accept it, and why does it say "signature on file"? This is unbelievable. Last time I had something shipped fedex, they took 5 days longer than promised because they couldn't find my house. I live in the middle of town. They deliver there all the time, as does UPS. Mapquest is only a click away. But no.

And now this.

I swear, someone's gonna pay.

I wish online companies would give you the option to use UPS or fedex or DHL. Unfortunately, MidWest has the best cost on maris otter. But if this is the price I have to pay, I may take my business elsewhere.

They're trying to get the driver on the cellphone now...

On the other hand, UPS almost gave me a gas-powered hydraulic log-splitter for free. If the dogs hadn't gotten excited, he would have unloaded it & scooted. Right address, wrong street. Must admit, my street isn't labeled, the other guy doesn't have his house marked & the e-maps are wrong a lot in this area.

Hope you find it soon.

Goddamn right. I was slated to be boiling my starter wort right about now. Instead I'm sitting at my office waiting for a phone call from these half-wits. They said it wasn't our normal carrier, it was some new contractor. F*cking FABULOUS. I don't care if they have to go drag the idiot around town by his earlobe, they need to find my sh*t tonight. If not, someone's gonna pay.

SWMBO just called.

Some strange package just dropped off at my house.

Don't know what that's all about.
