When Melody and I got our amateur radio licenses, we ordered a pair of
hand-held 2-meter transceivers. We watched through the UPS tracking
facility as they were sent out on the wrong truck three days in a row.
Finally we called the shipper, had the shipper tell UPS to hold them at
the truck terminal for us to pick up, and drove out to get them. This took
a week, because "It's not something we ordinarily do". It is, however, a
perfectly ordinary thing for UPS to send a package out on a truck that does
not have the package's address as part of its delivery area, three days in
UPS would have returned the package to the shipper as undeliverable if we
hadn't driven up and got it ourselves. Furrfu!
Shouldn't a "programmer's editor" be called a "bugger"?
