1. You know those commercials for UPS that ask what can brown do for you? Well for starters how about having their employees communicate with each other? The UPS man came to my apartment Wednesday night to drop off a package. Of course I wasn't home. Is anyone ever home when they come to make a delivery? They left the sticky note and when I got home I rushed to my computer to tell them to told hold my package at the distribution center. When I went to go pick it up this morning? Package was MIA. Nowhere to be found. Apparently the delivery driver left with my package on his truck. At least that's what the guy at the counter believed. So now I have to go BACK to the UPS place Friday morning. Because that package is important.
2. When I signed up for the training group last weekend I also wanted to pick up some gear - mainly a pair of Drymax socks and a neck warmer - to prepare myself for some outdoor runs that could potentially be chilly. And since my local running store was out, I headed over to the Running Warehouse and got a steal of a deal. Socks. A neck warmer. Free two-day shipping. Except due to UPS's inability to talk amongst themselves, my package has been sitting in the city where I live longer than it took to travel from California to Wisconsin. And I really need that package.
