FedEx vows to track down delivery man who tossed computer monitor over fence
Daily Mail ^ | December 20, 2011 | Daily Mail

Posted on 12/21/2011 5:01:20 AM PST by Colonel Kangaroo

FedEx has vowed to track down the deliveryman who was caught on video carelessly tossing a computer monitor over a fence during a delivery.

Company spokeswoman Shea Leordeanu would not say what would become of the employee once they find him, but added: 'This won't be his best day.' The hilariously sad clip of a FedEx delivery man chucking the computer monitor has attracted nearly 200,000 viewers on YouTube in a single day, many of whom expressed fears that their holiday packages would be treated with the same regard.

Full title:'This won't be his best day': FexEx vows to track down delivery man who tossed computer monitor over fence

When it absolutely, positively has to get there in one piece, send it via the US Postal Service.

How hard can it really be to find him? Where did they get the copy of the video?

That certainly hasn't been my experience. The USPS is fully unionized and has even less of an incentive to handle with care.

Yeah right, and that includes a free crap in your yard by your friendly postal worker? I'd rather have FedEx throw my stuff any day than to use the Hope & Change express.

Hope that was sarcasm. I’ve has USPS literally stuff over-sized parcels into my mailbox. I had to replace an old aluminum mailbox, because they crammed in a box that warped the structure and the door wouldn’t close.

During the holidays, these guys are probably so over-worked that they don’t want to deal with people. I’ve had FedEx AND UPS leave packages on my doorstep without so much as a push of the ringer. Just drop and go.

FedEx and UPS generally deliver to the post office here but I build a simple delivery box that sits in the doorway of the garage just in case.

A number of years ago, I went to the local Fedex terminal to pick up a package. It was on a Saturday I think. I followed the Fedex person out into the terminal area. While she was getting my package out of pile, there was a Gateway computer in the familiar black and white box. She kicked the the crap out of that computer to get it out of her way. I thought it was kind of funny, but then again, it wasn’t my computer.

Yeah, no, but close.

I find that FedEx has the best record for intact/on-time for me in Dallas. UPS is bad (I used to work for them) but still far better than number three, the USPS. Since when does “Express Mail with Overnight Delivery” between two major cities mean a week?

I believe the USPS is the largest employer of military veterans in the nation. The vets I've known in the postal service are good workers. There's good and bad in every organization. Be it USPS, UPS or FedEx. And I believe most try to do a good job in all three.

I don't like FedEx......I was tracking a package once and had gotten home from an errand at about 12:15 p.m......two hours later, I tracked the package again to discover that FedEx recorded it had been left on my porch at 12:10 p.m. which I knew wasn't true.

I immediately contacted the FedEx distribution center to report the error and they said they would contact the driver and have him return to where he had dropped off the package.

That never happened, it remained lost. While the package was insured, it wasn't insured for the full amount so the seller was out $90.

I sent letters to the president of FedEx to complain about the lack of attention given when I immediately reported the loss and he basically said too bad.......

‘Don’t recieve much from Fed-ex, but the UPS guy—or at least the regular one on our route—is a PR dream for their company. He always delivers to the door, has something poitive to say and ALWAYS thanks us for the business.

Purely circumstantial since it is the 2nd largest civilian employer in the United States. My personal experiences with the USPS tell me that it is a highly bloated and egregiously inefficient organization. I would like to see it privatized and auctioned off to FedEx and UPS.

I see your problem right off the bat. You think of that mail box as yours, it is not. By law the U.S.P.S. owns that mail box after you buy it and install it to receive U.S. mail.

I used to work for Delta airlines years ago when I was a young pup. They, like other airlines, carry a lot of US Mail. I’ll never forget seeing a new $50K Cisco core switch sit out in the rain on the ramp. I also recall the sight of U.S. Mail bags left out in the rain and snow on the ramp.

I say “Hail Mary” whenever I put something out in my mailbox.

Thank God for online bill pay...

It depends where you live. Out here in nowheresville, our postal carriers are friends and neighbors, and we get great service. All the delivery drivers are very nice, USPS, FedEx, UPS. We get more broken stuff through UPS, though.

My UPS and FedEx drivers are phenomenal!

In fact, I get irritated when I buy something online and find out they are shipping it via USPS.

As I recall, mail delivery was considered voluntary back in the day. If you didn’t install a box, the carriers would just leave your mail at the local branch.

By that rationale, I think I’m going to take down my mailbox and see what happens.

I’ve done the track, wait, shock thing too. I was waiting for a new server to be delivered. I was in the office, near the door, and I could see outside. I tracked the package only to see “Package left on doorstep.”

“Odd,” I thought. So I went outside to check... nothing. Called FedEx, they said the same thing, “We’ll have the driver come around again.” Driver never showed.

I called the next day, and the lady tells me that he came by but no one was home. I told her, “Lady, this is a business, not a home.” She proceeded to ream me out and hung up.

I avoid FedEx like the plague, if I can.

If you’ve ever seen how UPS loads a truck, you’ll NEVER ship anything of value with them again.

DHL used rolling containers for all of it’s freight. They rarely damaged anything. Those days are gone.

Tracking him should be easy. Just track the packing label and reference the truck/driver and delivery confirmation.

Most confirmations are recorded in real time.

The whole thing should take, at most, 5 minutes.

Their tracking system is a joke. It shows things as delivered that were not, things as “in transit” when they’ve been delivered, and more than a few times there’s no tracking number whatsoever.

So happy to read your comment. I had the same attitude towards my customers throughout my career. I'd go to great lengths to insure their satisfaction with my service. I'm guessing your UPS driver is an older guy?

The UPS guy in my area is great. He rings the bell or knocks and leaves the package by the front door. The FEDEX guy on the other hand always leaves the package leaning against the garage door. I expect some day to open the garage door and back over one his deliveries.

Just last week I ordered a new keyboard for my laptop. The package was CLEARLY marked "fragile" and "do not bend". So the mail-guy shoves it into my mailbox to the point that it put a 30 degree bend in it near the last quarter of the board! I managed to get it un-bent (with some care and time), but even if I would have had to send it back, the guy cost me a lot of time and effort...

I have had the post office lose only a couple packages in the 12 years I have used them for ebay sales. I usually have about $2,000.00 to $3,000.00 in postal charges each year. Before everything went to hell that figure was between 4-5 thousand a year. These are packages mostly sent first class mail and priority mail - thats a massive amount of packages sent correctly by the USPO. Granted, they screw some things up royally but compared to post offices in other parts of the world we are lucky.

From my own experiences we have the best postal system in the world.

I do not use UPS or FEDEX - too expensive. Besides, a good deal of the UPS packages get to where they are going by way of the USPO. Why pay the additional cost.

It looks like the recipient’s security video. If they have that address, they should know who the delivery man from the scanned package. Unless, this is a giant hoax.

I sent a package of bed linens in a box and shut down the entire post office. To find a good, strong box I went to the hardware store and found a sturdy box that orginally had insecticide cans.

The post office had a fit, thinking I was engaged in chemical warfare. The postmaster high poobah called and said I terrorized his staff. I told him that I was grateful that they didn’t call the Air Force and nuke the blanket and queen-size sheets. I also informed the PO that bedsheets rarely blowup. The PO never liked me after that incident.

Back in my childhood in small town Missouri, you picked up your mail at the post office, either you rented a post office box or you picked it up at the window. Your mailing address would be G.D., which stood for General Delivery, not G.D. as Jeremiah Wright uses G.D. in his sermons.
