FML - The follow-up
calamityjosie Say more :
Yeah, fair enough, OR 1). If I didn't run after the parcel it would have been sent back to the depot (in Bristol!) And would have gone back to America after 1day there! I would have had to pay extortionate posting for it to come back again! 2). Was being picked up at 8 - so yes I absolutely did have to have a shower! 3). If you'd been waiting all day getting restless would you not panic, given that you wouldn't expect out of a 13 hour slot - the parcel comes during the three minute shower you need?! And yes, it is my own stupidity - that's why it's funny, that I clearly have absolutely no common sense...hence the FML! To be honest I'd join FML too if all I had time to do with my day was leave criticisms on other people's jokes. :)

Don't they usually leave it in front of your door? Even if you need to sign for it, they'll usually leave one of those notes saying you need to go pick it up, or that they'll be back the next day to deliver it again.

If the poster lives in a city like I do, then they can't leave it on the doorstep of apts because it is not safe. I know the UPS and FedEx people around here leave so fast when they ring the doorbell it's not even funny. Even if you know what time they're coming, you have to run to the door/speaker when they ring the doorbell to let them know you're coming down in less than 15 seconds or they'll leave. And no, I'm not joking.

I once orderd something, and was sitting in my room waiting for it to arrive. I figured this would be a good place to sit as I can see the front door and street from here, so would be able to get to the door very quickly. Little did I know, the delivery driver was so lazy he didn't even get out of the van. I saw him pull up, wait about 5 seconds, then drive off. I then checked the online tracker and it told me they tried to deliver but I wasn't in!

Yeah, delivery men can be jerks. One time, I was expecting a package, but I knew I wouldn't be there to receive it because I had to work. I left a note on my door to please leave any packages at the front office (less than a 30 second walk from my apartment) since people have had packages stolen in my building before. I came home to my package sitting in plain sight on my doormat, and my note was mysteriously missing. They're lucky it didn't get stolen!

Agreed. You were home waiting for 10 and a half hours without showering or anything and felt the need to shower when you could assume that they were gonna show up within 30 minutes? You deserve it for not showering before 9am.. or for not waiting another 30 minutes.

Yeah seriously, how the hell do you "desperately need" a shower that you can't wait 30 minutes, in many villages in my country people bathe once a week or less.
