Well, I had a good reason to laugh this morning. I was going through my mail from the previous day and found a notice that FedEx was having difficulty delivering a package to me. This was a bit of a surprise considering first that I wasn’t expecting something, and second, because they were obviously able to get me a notice, then why not the package. I turned over the postcard and had my answer…
FedEx had sent the notice via USPS (the post office) rather than their standard door tag. I have had the tags before when the package must be signed for and no one was available to accept the package. That is nothing new. In this case, they needed an address correction and couldn’t figure it out on their own.
What I noticed on the postcard address was they had a typo in my address, so the street number was wrong. So rather than do a little research to find the correct info, they sent a card via USPS to me to with the request to call back and get things fixed.
So after all the knocks, we all make on the post office, apparently, they are the only ones smart enough to get a letter delivered even when the address is just a bit off. Next time I have something to gripe about with them, I’ll have to remember this little good thing they did and bite my tongue…just once.
