I got the coveted golden email, and I was disappointed it’s not gold at all. It was pretty much entirely black and white. They really should make that email fancy all things considered. Then I got my shipping notification on December 29th. At which point it vanished from the UPS updates for over a week. It was finally scanned in for pre-delivery last Thursday in the middle of NorEaster on schedule but the delivery that was supposed to happen Friday was delayed.
Then it was scheduled for Saturday delivery… which I stayed home specifically for, tracking said out for delivery… until it was listed as exceptioned(bets on UPS guy trying to lift it and saying screw it anyone?) and now it’s in limbo in the UPS system, despite an email from UPS claiming it was delivered(neat trick since it requires a signature). So I’m amused but also annoyed at this point.
What IS the procedure if UPS manages to lose a 4000$+ piece of equipment? Ignoring the likelihood it’s damaged, which I’m pretty much assuming will be the case at this point, since even with gentle handling, it was almost certainly subjected to sub zero temperature during its travels.
Of course it will probably get another attempted delivery today regardless. In which case, if the UPS guy doesn’t bail again, I’ll have pictures.
