Now, if it was ground service, that is a wholly owned subsidiary formerly known as RPS (Roadway) which is on an entirely different computer system/set of rules than FedEx Express (the normal FedEx service). If it was regular FedEx, well, then they just really messed up.
It was 2-day service. I'm too paranoid to wait 7 days for ground without going nuts. (like, what if terrorists took my pedals for ransom, like oh my god...I need another sip of espresso...WOAH! like my package is not here yet, I'll probably see the bearings from the pedal at the foot of my bed when I wake up...the mob's probably got it EEEK!! )
