Do your job FedEx

FedEx advertisement

You see… what this picture is trying to tell you is that FedEx cares. They care about you and your package and want to get it to you in good condition and as safe as possible. Its a good advertisement. The only problem is they don’t really care about you. Admittedly I can understand that maybe the company as a whole cares, but that isn’t reflected all the way down to the employees working for them… specifically the dickwads delivering your product (I had to add ‘dickwads’ to my autocorrect dictionary, but rest assured its a real word).

The reason I bring this up is because yesterday I saw the announcement Google had finally released the car dock for the Nexus One (FUCK YES). So I order the son of a bitch… expecting it to take a few days. But guess what? When the order processed and I got my tracking number it was on track to be delivered NEXT DAY (DOUBLE FUCK YES).

So anyways, I’m off work today and the entire family is home and we’re all hanging out. I walked outside for a minute and found a note on the door that said FedEx had tried to deliver your package but no one was home and they’re going to try to deliver it tomorrow.

 

WHAT THE FUCK?!

 

no no no no and NO. Fuck you FedEx dude—we were here. You didn’t even fucking try to deliver it. You probably sat in your truck and wrote up the “sorry” note and just walked up and put it on our door. Do your job and knock on the door you stupid lazy son of a bitch. DO YOUR FUCKING JOB—ITS WHY THEY PAY YOU.

Now, its not like its an emergency that I get this package, but how does he know that? How does he know its not an important business package, or medical supplies, or porn… YOU DON’T KNOW FEDEX DUDE, YOU DON’T KNOW!

So I called them up. I told the person on the phone that I was extremely annoyed and explained the fact we were home all day (not just one of us that could have been in the shitter or something, but an entire family). Although I was mad this happened, I was nice to her and even told her that I understood this wasn’t her fault but that I was frustrated. So she did something awesome. She called the local facility and had them get in contact with the driver and demanded he redeliver. About 2 hours later he showed up…

Chihuahuas and my Nexus One

evil fucking dog Let me just get this out of the way… remember my post about how I sorta dislike chihuahuas? Today sealed the deal for me. The stupid thing was taking a dump in my daughters room… you know where she plays on the carpet and all… and my wife started screaming at it. Instead of running away, it sorta waddled away… while it was still pooping. Creating what I can only describe as a “model train replica” of dog shit. The “engine” or front of the train was in Ashlyn’s room, which was followed by all the shit cargo containers. The “caboose” or end of the train was in our upstairs hallway. The entire time it was shitting my kids were following it screaming and laughing. It was a horrible moment.

On a lighter note, I got a new phone. I was really excited to get the T-Mobile G1 when it first came out, but as the Android OS has been developing more and more, and the phone wasn’t built with specs that could keep up. I’ve been stuck on Android 1.6 while 2.1 is already out.

Not only that, but I’ve gone through 3 G1 phones. Its a great phone when its working, but not so much when the camera stops working or the phone locks up for random reasons (trust me, its a hardware issue, not the OS).

Nexus One is sooo purdy

So I upgraded. The Nexus One is pretty amazing. I can’t believe how fast I’m browsing websites (especially with the new multitouch). The camera (with flash!) is really good, and my pictures Gallery even syncs with my Picasa account so I can see any image from my Web Albums. Right now I have no complaints, but to be fair I’ve only had it for a few days so I’ll be sure to do an update in a few weeks or a month or so.
