What Would UPS Do? I ordered some stuff, well, am ORDERING a bunch of stuff. This week a box was out of FL and one was out of MD. Shipped on same day by FDX. I tracked em. Sposed to arrive today, which they did. The one I ordered outta MD was backordered quite a few months. The FL one I put usual add on plus business name am going by also. Guy comes up today (FDX Home Delivery) and says, "I saw this smaller one was going Ground to your add in our building so I just thought I'd take it a save the Ground guy." Me: "Uh, OK. What's the diff?" He says, "Ground is business and HD is Resi". "Great! Thanks!" Now, here, these guys probably load their own trucks, er, excuse me, CARS! And, it probably ain't as big a hub as some. Point? This guy was giving SERVICE! What would UPS do? OK, now I know most hubs or centers have preloaders, I know, I was there 32 yrs. AND, I know UPS goes by adds and zips. I KNOW! I also know most UPS centers are on this, whatever acronym thing they call it where it is the panacea for all the earth's woes when it comes to loading and tracing, blah, blah, blah. My point is: Today, in this, so-called, computer/tracking/service/effeciant/no-left turns/telematics/on-and-on NEW UPS, would this have happened? Would it have been ALLOWED to happen? Oh, I know, between drivers, this happens all the time. But, OFFICIALLY, would UPS, knowingly allow this to happen? You know what? I appreciated what this FDX guy did today. It saved me some time and aggrevation. He made a decision and ran with it. Can WE do the same thing? That is, without getting a warning letter or a termination? As a Post Script: Both boxes were in perfect condition. The FL one was pretty long but light. Had to pay OS on it and I was afraid of it's arrival condition cuz it's a long brake line for my Vette. Arrived perfect. I wonder if UPS woulda done the same thing. Carry on. Geez, just thot...The world's sposed to end Sat, the 21st. Shoulda charged this stuff.
