I'm at the point where I just loathe FedEx. In light of the post above I had no real expectations of receiving my system today (despite the fact that today is the scheduled delivery date according to FedEx) but for grins checked the FedEx site this morning anyway. What can I say; at this point I'm a masochist. Low and behold:

Mar 26, 2005
1:52 AM - Arrived at FedEx location - ORLANDO, FL
Mar 25, 2005
5:59 PM - Picked up - MIAMI, FL
5:30 PM - Package data transmitted to FedEx
So, excited, I return home form work. Nope, wife informs me that it isn't here yet. Getting a little nervous that FedEx will botch the address, we live in a new subdivision and despite the fact that my wife receives editing work via FedEx multiple times a week they still screw it up on occasion, I call them. Nope Gary the FedEx representative assures me, the package is on the truck, they have our address correct, and that as this is a home delivery so they might be here as late as 8pm but I should expect it tonight. Like the sucker that I am I wait with camera ready.
It's 8:10pm. No FedEx.
First call to 1800GoFedEx made at 7pm - address confirmed, told in route
Second call to 1800GoFedEx made at 8:30pm - tech went to check with local, hung up on me
Third call to 1800GoFedEx made at 8:35pm - told by rep that they checked with local and told driver still out, wait until 9pm and call back
Fourth call to 1800GoFedEx made at 9:05p - Now tracking says that failed delivery due to unknown address, timed at 4:31pm - Rep says that local has now closed but that she can transfer me to the voice mail.
Despite every pro-active effort on my part they did not deliver; due to an "unknown address"that they have delivered to before.
