    The sounds about right for UPS.

    They ended up returning two different packages that were meant to go to my home address within a couple of days of each other. Why? Apparently their computer told them to deliver the packages to an office I worked in over two years ago (that I guess I must have had a package redirected to at some point). The company I worked for doesn't even occupy that office anymore. And here's the kicker: This was without even attempting a delivery to my home. Yay smart!
  • All the delivery companies are, as far as I can tell, crap. UPS does the sort of thing you said. Also, they tend to happily deliver to unsafe locations, but never to good ones. http://rjbs.manxome.org/debug/entry/2003-09-15 and following tell the story of my amazing ordeal with getting my iPod delivered. In the end, it was only luck that I managed to get it. I ordered office supplies before my current business trip, to be delivered to my home, and they went to the office, despite the address on the box

  • just opt to pick it up at their distro center. It may be out of the way and inconvenient but at least I get packages.
