    Holy smoke, English dude - learn it. A little punctuation and grammar goes a long way so that others can understand WTF you are talking about.

    It's sitting in a trailer. HD only delivers tues-sat. I doubt it's taken 2 weeks to get to you. Use UPS next time.

    Why don't you just drive the 7 hours and pick it up yourself?
    Honestly you customers act like you are some sort of privilege group. Don't you know the only people who count are the executives and the institutional stockholders. You should be happy hey are doing so well.

    I've had just the opposite experience. I've ordered car parts from rockauto in California twice in the last 2 weeks, and one shipment took 4 days, the other 3. via fedex.

    If you (like really) have been waiting for two weeks, you probably should call and inquire. :smart:
    Emailing Fred is not really advised unless you like talking to his secretary's secretary's secretary. :halfdead:

    You get what you pay for. If you pay for cheap service, it takes longer. Pay more, you get it faster. Online ordering 101.

    To be fair, Ground has better in-transit times than UPS.

    FedEx is slow because it is managed by mental defectives and is increasingly staffed with low-cost, low-capability labor. In other words, you get what you pay for. I have not read all of the responses, but your package is lost...you don't say if it's Express or Ground.

    The FedEx of today (regardless of opco) is a sorry-ass operation run almost solely on the basis of reducing costs. The customer is way down their list of priorities.
