Ok, sorry in advance for the length/whining, just thought we could all have a small laugh at a fella trying to get his Black Tuesday. A bit of back story, i'm trying to schedule a fedex pickup at my Bruery Trustee's house, bottles have built up for a while and there were multiple full 12-bottle shippers. they are already labeled/ready to go, just trying to setup a pickup. I set up one for a Friday, Fedex no-showed. No showed monday, too, so i set one up for tuesday, and saw no fedex then either. So i went to their online cust service and had the following convo (note that upon replying to their emails, i got a different person each time). I changed the numbers to *** because i'm scared of hackers stealing my beer. Me: : Hello, I am trying to have FedEx Pick up some boxes at a friends house, as there are several large ones. We have done this probably 5 times before with little to no problem. I scheduled a pickup for last Friday, and no one showed up. I hoped someone would come Monday, and no one did, so a scheduled another for Tuesday, still no pickup. There are no comments for difficulties or anything else that i can find, they simply didn't show up. please let me know how i can resolve this so that i can get these time-sensitive packages on their way.

Me: Dear Jose, Sorry if i am sounding rude, but i know where/how to schedule a pickup, i have done that twice already (confirmation codes supplied below) , unless i did something wrong with the last two, and perhaps you could help me correct them. I would like to make sure that, upon scheduling a third pickup, that the packages will be picked up. Was there any reason that the first two weren't successful? Is there a way i can ensure that future pickups are? Thank you Jose, Nathan FedEx (Ron): Dear Mr. Ridgley: We received your inquiry. We regret any inconvenience caused by this situation. To help us follow up on this situation, please e-mail us back with the type of service (Ground/Express). Thank you for your patience in this matter, and for shipping with FedEx. Me: Ron, I was using (or trying to use) FedEx Ground, or i suppose "Home delivery" or whatever a home pickup is classified under. I have attached the initial inquiry for consideration. Basically, i have been trying to schedule pickups and no one is showing up (with no comment for why/if there was an issue i can correct), and i would like to get these packages picked up as soon as possible. Again, my pickup confirmation numbers for the two that were no-shows were: ****************** **************** And the one i have scheduled for Monday (3/18/2013) is: ***************** Thanks for your help, Nathan FedEx (Adrian): Dear Mr. Ridgley: Thank you for contacting FedEx.
