i watched a driver throw a package up a flight of stairs from the landing at the bottom. No ****. Spinning in the air and all. Turned around and got in the truck and left.

Makes me want to lay out some rusty roof tacks.

At least It wasn't Fed-Ex...
Honest to God I had a Fed-Ex guy come up to my apartment one day, didn't knock, just opened my door and threw the package inside, and left. I was there at the time so I saw the whole thing but I was too shocked to react right away. Whoever his manager was sure got an earful about that!

.....but.....I guess what I would say is.....if you are getting gear.......then request a signature. Us guys don't.....AAAAAHH...I mean...those stupid drivers don't know if it's electronic or what it is.....they don't care.....there just boxes. Most of those guys are pissed because there working another 11 hour day, and can't get home to there own guitars. Not that that is any excuse for them throwing your packages or being the ignorant bastards that they seem to be.

As far as leaving a $17,000 dollar check in a door........if it came up missing, UPS will only give you the value of the paper, not the check...soooo, that would have been a .50 cent claim.....the person that shipped you a $17,000 check WITHOUT REQUESTING A SIGNATURE IS ONE STUPID **** THOUGH....sorry! Let's see what else..... all delivery companys are gonna handle those beautiful musical toys about the same way. I personally have more faith in UPS then in others, but...to each his own.......

..okay.....I'm out of here.....(RUNNNNING SWIFTLY)

Why did I even respond to, WT? I'm just feeding the troll. My bad.

Seriously, if you can afford insurance you sure as hell can afford to pay for signature and ID-check from the reciever of the package.

Or, you can insist on using it when shipping stuff and have the reciever pay for it.

It isn´t hard to do either.

I worked at UPS, its pretty much like treating your stuff like drift wood. Lots of the um, brothers drink hard alcohol. I took LSD and smoked pot at work.
One guy took the tickets off the computers and put his own address and sold laptops. Its common to see open boxes all over.

Funniest thing I ever witnessed was my boss pull down an entire WALL of boxes because the worked stacked it bad.

Second most funny!!
A bolling ball on a belt, it would roll up about 6 feet then get to steep and roll down and SMASH what ever box at the bottom (we let it go on for hours) just battering boxes.

Iv had my leg knee deep in a box.
Disgruntled employees drop kick boxes every day..

Truth be told its a hard job and the boss walks around in suits and GRILLS the packing guy "Hustle, hustle, pull you aside, "I said hustle, don't we pay and pay, whats wrong with you blah...blah... Managers dropping over with heart attacks.
Its truly a hateful job.

Tons of animosity and cut throat for such a small small wage and striped out benefits and a week union (Sold out)

I was not a big box smasher but when I was busting ass and the boss came at random and gave me a nasty lecture you bet I toss a box or kick a box.

One I jumped from the top of a ramp 4 feet down into a box after the boss came and said some stuff.

Guys its a ghetto and many times they run the machines at 20% higher speed and volume then it was built for.
