FedEx Routes Document To Wrong City, Annoys Law Professor

Fedex Office, the entity formerly known as Kinko’s, offers a service where you can upload a document, have it printed at a store near you, and pick it up. How wonderful! Unless the system, in its infinite wisdom, sends your document to a store that is a 4-hour drive away. That’s what happened to a UCLA law professor, who tried to call FedEx and fix the situation.

Their solution was both innovative and idiotic: they told Eric to write his credit card info on a slip of paper, and promised to take care of everything the next morning.

Apparently, FedEx Kinkos will not rest until it adds every possible name to its title, because now in addition to being a FedEx… and a Kinkos… it’ll be a Geek Squad. That is, if “Project Xerox” is successful.

Tell Kinkos It Sucks And Make Them Lose Money

If you went to Kinkos, and had a sucky experience, you should first try to resolve your complaint with the manager in-store and on-the-spot. Failing that, write down the store address and call 1-800-463-3339.

You’ll Never Make Copies In This Town Again

Actually, up to the point where the lawyer and the employee start throwing money at it each other, it’s a fairly accurate depiction of both the staff and customers we’ve come to expect at the cesspool that is Kinkos.

Disaffected: The Game That Lets You Hate Yourself

It’s not often we get to link to videogames, but we’re happy to direct your attention to ‘Disaffected,’ a sort of inverse to the advergame—games that shill products as their primary or secondary purpose—where players experience what it’s like to be a Kinko’s-like employee.
