Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.
This week I am extra super duper annoyed at delivery services. Everyone complains about the USPS, but I don’t generally have an issue with them, though I realize we are getting normal mail a day or two later than usual. I do wish there could be an option NOT to receive any advertising or political garbage/surveys, as that crap really stuffs up the mailbox. Anyway…
Here are the companies currently on my sh!t list. Amazon has been in my doghouse ever since they quit dropping off cat litter at the door. That box is HEAVY, and the only reason I buy it online is so I don’t have to carry it up from my car. But Amazon started leaving it at my mailbox downstairs because THEY were too lazy/pressed for time to bring it up. Ugh! Now I get my litter from Target, who delivers to the door. Amazon has also been squishing everything they can into my mailbox, which has damaged a few items (like a picture frame). God forbid Bezos makes a bit less money by hiring more delivery people so they have time to come upstairs!
Next up is Chadwicks who took forever to process a refund, which annoyed me so much I now toss their catalogs in the trash unopened.
This week we have JCPenney (via UPS) who sent me a notification that my item arrived when it didn’t. I called them and they said give it a few days because delivered doesn’t mean delivered. Oh. Silly me, assuming words have meanings. Two days later, still NOTHING. They are definitely going on my do-not-buy-again list with Chadwicks. (Update: JPC reshipped the sweater.)
Finally, we have FedEx, who sent me an invoice for ELEVEN packages when I had shipped one. Geez! Wtf is wrong with these places? I called them and received a credit, but still!
These are the companies who (so far) have not screwed up deliveries to me this year: Macy’s, Target, and Wal*Mart. They will be getting more of my biz. And I am rethinking Amazon altogether. Not only has their delivery service gone bad, but I can’t find any good movies to watch on Prime either!
