    nobody does.

    quick story: i sent something usps, was a control panel for a piece of machinery. i repaired it packaged it up real good with bubble wrap. i write all over the package "fragile" and i mean all over. bring it to the local p.o.. pay for it etc, the person who handled this transaction then takes the package and lobs it maybe 5 feet into this big aluminum bin on casters *bang*. i start laughing, the person looks at me, i say "good thing i labeled it fragile" she looks at me like i have three heads.

    at least do this shit behind closed doors

    FedEx is the shipper of choice for Howard 100/100. And I want to make sure my giant dildo I'm sending makes it t here okay.

    These FedEx employees care as much about their customers as Howard does. This type of video has been posted before, so one would expect that the employees wouldn't do this on a public street.

    those boxes are mighty light for packages. Plus if she had to deliver them how the fuck would she sort them now? If they were pickups why would she unbox them and throw them in just to have to reload after to bring them in? Those have got to be empty or trash.

    I thought FedEx was one of the better ones. Privately owned, employees get stock in the company, cute shorts, etc.

    Edit: I was wrong - it's U P S

    I live in a rural area and have never had any package delivery problems EXCEPT for FedEx. They often claim they can't find my road (even though it's listed on MapQuest and all the other mapping software) and their delivery guy always knocks on my door and wakes me up (I work nights) even though I have a huge sign that says SLEEPING - DO NOT DISTURB. It's so bad I always ask whoever is shipping something to me NOT to use FedEx even if I have to pay extra.

    This is SOP and has been for decades. I knew guys who worked at the UPS loading facilities during holidays way back. Everything gets thrown to keep it speedy. Properly packed, it shouldn't be a problem.

    You can have them divert the item to your nearby FedEx store. That is, if you have one.

    UPS does the same -- for $5.

    I like the USPS.

    If you're not home, I can just pick the package up at the post office.

    Fed Ex will leave your package there in front of your door for all the world to steal.

    My apartment door is next to a busy street.

    The person helping her obviously works for the place that's shipping. I'm sure she's well aware that the packages are not fragile. Non story imo.

    Bull - they are paid well.

    UPS drivers get over $50k a year. They are all Teamsters union. FedEx close to the same.
