So I called UPS and told them that I would come to the center and pick it up myself, which they confirmed and said it was fine.
My friend accepts my request for transportation, and she carts me to New Orleans East (if you know New Orleans, this is not near where I was downtown)
The moment I walk into the UPS and start talking to the clerk, my phone rings. It’s UPS. They didn’t realize that even though I’d said to hold and the center for pickup, someone took the GF and put it on another truck and sent it to my workplace.
SO… had to go all the way back to work and then wait another 30 minutes before the driver came and VERY roughly took the box off the truck… Definitely dropped it about 12 inches onto the rolling cart. Dents and scratches everywhere (on the box, not the GF)
Then it wouldn’t power on… But it has since then and it seems like it’s okay so far… I hope this isn’t a case of a faulty power supply, but we’ll see.
