UPS Driver Forced To Take Shelter Behind FedEx Truck In Midst Of Angry Turkey Attack

I imagine the rivalry between UPS and FedEx drivers to be some kind of Mad Max road rage, with dueling drivers trying to run each other down on the mean streets. But when a UPS driver was faced with a grumpy turkey he didn’t even hesitate to run for the shelter of a nearby FedEx truck. And of course, someone caught it all on camera. [More]

Check Out The Arm On The FedEx Guy Tossing A Package 20 Feet Onto A Customer’s Porch

Baseball. Football. Cricket. Trench warfare. All of those things are occasions where being able to lob something at a target from a long distance is a good skill to have. But using that good arm to chuck Fedex deliveries onto a customer’s porch from 20 feet away will not garner praise, especially when you’re (allegedly) caught on camera doing just that. [More]

There were probably a lot of printed-out photos standing in for gifts under Christmas trees across the country. A combination of huge last-minute demand, retailers’ promises of Christmas delivery, and bad weather meant that many gifts that were supposed to arrive on the last business day before Christmas didn’t.

It’s really sad when a person can’t even hurl packages ten at a time into her FedEx truck without some muckraking jerk filming her on their cell phone. “We pick up and deliver millions of packages in a professional manner each year, and the actions in this video do not reflect our professional expectations,” FedEx told Gothamist in a statement.

When You Receive 11 Pounds Of Marijuana You Didn’t Order, You Should Probably Tell Someone

We’ve gone over this in the past: if you receive a package in the mail that you didn’t order, it’s yours to keep. You’re under no obligation to send it back or to pay for it.

(OiMax)

Jeff is an American who currently lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo is a dense and baffling city, and his bank, USAA, created a huge problem when they sent him a check using FedEx but sort of forgot to include his street address. In a city of millions and in a neighborhood of 300,000, FedEx’s challenge was to find one foreign dude. They could have just sent the envelope back to USAA. Instead, they accepted the challenge and got the package to Jeff before the original delivery estimate was up. [More]

FedEx Driver Can’t Read Street Signs, Shrugs

You’d think that before getting hired as a FedEx driver, someone would check to see whether you have certain skills. Such as the ability to read street signs. The driver serving Charlie’s neighborhood lacks this key skill. That, or he confuses street names very, very frequently. [More]
