What Can Brown Do For You?

Have you seen the UPS commercial when the end brings the question..."What Can Brown Do For You?"

Well... I've got one answer for starters.

Dear Mr. UPS,

Thank you for making my delivery promptly! I truly appreciate the fact that you felt obligated to keep my package at the front of the truck (as displayed by the obvious numerous drop-kicks the package received). And I'm glad it came in handy to use as your personal stepstool when your short self was trying to reach the top shelf in your brown truck. What I'm truly glad of is the fact that the package only contained a ball cap and not something that King Gary received broken. Otherwise, his foot might be up your ass.

Again, thank you for your great service!

I've had a couple arrive looking like that and like yourself, was relieved it didn't contain anything breakable. still...

I read your post before this one and wanted you to know I am thinking of you, hon. ((((HUGS))))

i have a friend whose hubby works for UPS and let me tell you, the employees are not treated much better than that package of yours. it's shameful. there is a reason the company color is brown.....

What did they do to that box?

My last package from UPS was so mangled things were literally falling out of the box. The UPS woman brought it in and said that I should check it for damage immediately because it would have to be determined who was liable (UPS or the original company). Fortunately, the crib was not damaged, but I was amazed that UPS would even bring that box to my door.

Oh my!!! I'm glad it wasn't something breakable. Holy cow.

Jaq from Mad TV didn't deliver it, did he?

Jeezum crow, I'd have knocked that delivery guy senseless.

Good to have you back Sheri!

Oi vey... I've had that problem once or twice with UPS - I don't know what they're thinking sometimes. Glad that your goods weren't ruined.

Dealing with UPS to get that rectified is hell from what I've heard.

Beth said...

This is GREAT!

I have trouble with UPS not dropping off packages because no one is home during the day. Who is home during the day anymore?? So I called the local UPS Depot and told them that since my package is only HALF delivered, could they FEDEX it to me the rest of the way since their drivers seem to get it done. They said No.
