Default Morons!

Well, the other day I ordered a lift kit for my Jeep Cherokee. I looked at the tracking stuff online the day after I order it and realize that it will be here the next day (yesterday). So after I get home from work (that'* right, I got a job Justin) yesterday, I see it sitting in the garage. I was so happy I didn't notice it at first, but there was only two of the three packages there. I was missing an ENTIRE leaf pack! So I call the company that I ordered it from, they tell me to call UPS, UPS tells me that they "lost it in transit." How the heck do you lose a whole leaf pack? Not like it isn't obvious or anything like that.... They tell me that they are going to try to track it down and get it to me as soon as possible. I was planning on installing the lift tomarrow morning so I can try it out on some local trails, see how nice it works. Apparently that isn't going to work out. I am going to have to wait till the middle of next week sometime to get it, and probably won't be able to install it until next weekend becase I am working most, if not all, next week. Boy, oh boy, I wasn't happy when I heard that they lost it.

What can brown do for you?

For me, THEY COULD GET ME MY STUPID LEAF PACK!!!!!!!!

Well, I'm sorry if I am offending anybody that works for UPS for a living, but I am angry.

Chances are it was too heavy at one of the transfers and they have to wait for the big guy to come and load it? The ups guy that delivered my 21" monitor said it sat at his depot for 2 days till he got there?

My 23" monitor [which weighed about the same as one of my cylinder heads], came two days after it shipped. Usually weight isn't a problem for those guys. They got them fancy carts and stuff. And I don't think they would say "Lost in transit" for something that is too heavy. They wouldn't uplay a problem [I think saying something was too heavy for the regular shipping guy is better than saying they lost your package].

How heavy are those leafys anyways?

I would say at least 30-35 pounds, it'* the full leaf pack. It'* pretty big and has an unusual shape to it for a package.

30lbs is nothing. Definitely not a weight-related issue. If the delivery guy can't lift 30lbs, he needs to find a new job.

Weight shouldn't have been a problem, i used to work for FedEx and everyone is supposed to be able to pick up at least 60lbs by themselves and if something is too heavy there are always people around to help.... or at least thats how it was at FedEx. I've had nothing but bad experiences shipping with UPS.
