Waiting on UPS

As cyclists I think we're all used to this.

Why do they never come early in the day when it's something for me.

UPS has a set delivery schedule. If you have not paid for AM delivery, you will not get AM delivery in most cases. They deliver the time critical stuff first, then the non time critical stuff, then start on their pick up schedule.

I think they usually do for me.

I am at work and they require a signature. After they missed me twice( they ignore the request to leave it), I wind up having to go the the UPS distribution center to pick it up.

I got 2 day, I need this package before 3:30 when I leave. I'm going to not be happy if it doesn't come before then.

It's not the am 2 day either. Most of the time ups delivers crap here before 11am. Without having the AM service.

It's stuck in Kentucky and probably on its way to Maryland. They've gone pony express this month, you know....

UPS offers online tracking, just saying. And 2 day should have a guaranteed delivery time or it is free. Delivery time will vary by route, location, etc. Give me a tracking number and I will tell you when it should arrive. PM me if you want.
