Boycott UPS

There I said it, the gauntlet is thrown down, the United Parcel Service is made up of liars who make promises that they never keep.

Why do you ask? Well let's put it this way, in the time I've lived in NYC I've never received a package on the day I was supposed to. In some cases I was forced to drive to pick it up, it sort of defeats the purpose of having it shipped to my house if I have to go pick it up.

Before I continue let me point out that the item is an entertainment center, it weighs 95lbs and is too big to stick in a cab, nor should I have to pay shipping ($67) and cab fare.

But evidently this is the tactic of UPS. According to several reports on my3cents.com I've found tales such as mine, the website promises one date, you sit by the window waiting, checking the status of the shipment only to be told:

THE RECEIVER WAS UNAVAILABLE TO SIGN ON THE 1ST DELIVERY ATTEMPT.
A 2ND DELIVERY ATTEMPT WILL BE MADE


But I was home all day, I called UPS 4 times already, I didn't even shower in the off chance that the driver may show up while in the act... HA! Ok that was funny. Its quite obvious that the driver hasn't been on my block, had he he would have seen the giant sign on my front door beckoning him in. I could ask the business next door to me, with whom I am quite friendly, that at 4:09 P.M. did they see a big brown truck outside my apt, they would say no, of course, because no truck exists.

This is not the first time I've been burned by UPS and evidently I am not alone. So I'm drawing my line in the sand, its time to boycott UPS and any businesses that do business with them.

What can brown do for you? How about fuck you up the ass.
