Federal Express Corporation Complaint - Special Delivery?
FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO -- I have noticed an increasing trend, especially where I work. I understand that the delivery companies of the world, UPS & Fed-Ex in particular, are under time restraints and more pressure than the average neurosurgeon. They speed to and from, jump in and out of their delivery trucks, and get on with life before you even knew what hit you. I used to be a delivery driver of sorts myself for about 2-yrs, so I can relate. What I cannot relate to is the fact that they think their time is more important than any other person out there working a job in the world. Case in point: I stopped across the street for a fountain drink at the gas station/convenience store, and was standing patiently in line to pay. There was one customer in front of me in line waiting as well. The cashier is ringing her up, and as she is being handed her change, two Fed-Ex workers come in the store. One goes to get something to drink, while the other literally walks up to the counter, plops a few packages on the counter next to the customer, reaches over her outstretched arms (still awaiting her change) and asks the cashier to please sign her electronic clipboard. The poor lady in front of me had no idea what to say. Well, if any of you don't already know me by now, I'm never at a loss for words...good or bad. I looked right at the Fed-Ex worker and said, "Excuse me, but who do you think you are"? "I don't care what you are delivering, but unless it's a priority package for the President of the United States, then you can wait like everyone else. And I think you owe this young lady an apology for butting in right next to her". The Fed-Ex worker said, "I'm sorry, but I'm in a hurry." The young lady in front of me politely replied, "So am I". LOL!!! Priceless.
