God Damn Fedex.

According to tracking info, my hops have been in in town for 2 days but no delivery. Arghhhhhhhh! So much for brewing this weekend. They donlt deliver ground packages on weekends!

You may be able to find out exactly where the package is and pick it up yourself. I've done this before.

Not sure I can do that here. It would be a fedex whare house and quite possibly a contractor here. I'll have to make the fedex people in the phone give me the address. Still means monday at the earliest though.

Fedex is generally cooperative. I had some product from China stuck in Anchorage, AK. I was able to call the local office, get transfered to Anchorage and give them the information they needed to finish processing the box.

Still a bummer when you were set to brew.

yeah, you usually have to call a day in advance so they can find it on the truck/warehouse.

and you're right, FedEx uses local contracted companies to deliver some stuff, especially out in the boonies.

Its times like that where I don't lament living in a small city.

I thought FEDEX did weekends, but UPS didn't.

My experience is the longer the distance, the better FEDEX is on ground.

I'm in the NOLA area, and buy grains form North Country Malt (upstate NY). If I order before noon on Monday, I receive Thursday afternoon with FEDEX.

Can't get that with UPS. (but, UPS is great on zone 1 to zone 1 for ground - next day)

Sucks not having hops.

Hmm, my new neighbor obviously works for FedEx, he has about three of their trucks in his driveway at any given time. Should I go beat him up for you, just out of spite??

Mebbe I should just sneak over at night and let all the air out of the FedEx tires............

Yes, Beat on him an tell him it's nothing personal and that he is to pass the beating up the chain of command.

But don't flatten the tires? What if it has someone else's overly late hops order.
