I'm becoming more and more convinced that I have an ex-girlfriend working at Fed Ex that hates me.
I've been expecting 11 packages from Florida for over a month and they have been bouncing between Portland, OR and Toledo, OH like a bad tennis match for a few weeks.
I've called them several times and it's been a bit of a horse and pony show but a fellow assured me and the shipper the a few days ago that I would be getting these priority shipped to my home by the 15th.
Fast forward to yesterday. Well I received 5 of the 11 boxes my wife went to pick them up for me as I'm in camp sadly.
She asked about the other 6 boxes and got some blank looks so I'll be back on the phone Monday again
She had called me and said the boxes didn't look so good so I've asked her to take a few photos for me.
Here is sample of one of the boxes. Not so good but at least my receiver and HDMI switcher seem to be ok my wife is telling me.
The articulating arm I guess had the box ripped open and is missing parts and there are some damages (hard to see in the photo but my wife not a photographer
The small piece on top of the support in the picture is apparently damaged my wife tells me.
I don't have the stuff in front me so I can't really tell how bad it all is but I guess I'll find out Thursday night when I get home.
I'm already making arrangements to ship some of the stuff back to the vendor like the articulating arm for replacement.
I guess I should count my blessing considering how many things I've had shipped over the last year but this was one bungled delivery !
The worst hands down for me to date. I'm thankful my HD-DVD player will be double boxed in case they decide to play hacky sack with it.
The last photos is an ongoing quest I have that has been such a gong show I can't help but laugh.
On the box is 5.1 wall plate. What is so funny about that you ask?
Well I've been asking for a 7.1 wall plate for over a year. I've sent the vendor product numbers and even photos (of the one he sells no less).
The 1st time around he sent me the wrong wall plate I thought no biggie I'll use it in the bonus room.
The 2nd time I was like damn ! well ok I guess I can use it in the living room.
Now this is the 3rd time and I don't have anything left to order and I don't need a 3rd - 5.1 system wall plate (unless I start putting in a 4th HT in another room ...Nah, not going to happen).
Anyways my quest for a 7.1 wall plate continues and I'm thinking I'm off to another e-tailer this time - 3 strikes your out for the last guy.
