Little fun story to share fellow POTN....

I bought a Vagabond II here on the forums which would of arrived in 2 days after shipped but noooooooo FEDEX LOST my package it was shipped to GA and they have no tracking no idea where my package was until the receiver notified fedex saying wrong package (Grateful for that person) was delivered to him. So fedex finally did a call tag (Shipping package back to me ground not even upgrading my shipping back to me) and well it finally arrived today which has my package has been lost for over a month now..

Well today i got an email from Alienbee saying that my Vagabond Mini shipped today and will arrive next week.

Moral of the story don't use FEDEX for shipping packages.. :) haha..

thanks,

Alex

lol I never do. Always USPS or UPS. But honestly, I have read and heard A MILLION horror stories from all of them.

I heard they were merging.... Their new name is FEDUP! :)

The bottom line they all manage to screw up that one important shipment. UPS really sucks, they are in the lead in my book with screwed up shipments, lost packges, damaged boxes and overall worst customer service. FedEx runs a close second, but makes it up to me with better discounts.
