UPS Ground @ 10:24 am

I would just like to say that UPS ground shipping really sucks ass. How long could it possibly take to get a pack from one coast to the other. I could walk cross country and beat UPS, jeez!

I said the same thing about a week and a half ago! ::rotfl::

The sad thing is, mine wasn't even UPS ground... when I got my package, it had "2nd Day AIR" emblazoned all over the damned box. "2nd Day" my ass, bucky! :p

...I was bitching to a friend on AIM about that last night. A package I shipped out on Monday isnt' due to arrive until the 9th. WTF is up with that?

And get this: UPS offers _same_day_shipping_ for only around $150. They charge so damn much for ground you'd think same day would be $1000 or something. I'm tempted to ship everything same day or next day from now on, the price is so similar and the service is so much better.

(I was shipping a computer, around 30 pounds, which cost me $80 via ground, but would've been around $200 for same day. I mean, yeah, $120 is a big difference, but considering the speed diff. I'm thinking maybe next day is a good compromise. All I know is UPS sucks ASS and I hate them.)

You could use one of the routers that AT&T keep sending you to beat UPS over the head!

and of course you would have to take pictures and post them in LJ so we can all witness the act (as most of us would want to do it ourselves)
