Might explain UPS's problems

I shipped out three packages via UPS the other day, mainly because the people who had bought my stuff on Ebay used paypal to pay for it and paypal has some agreement with UPS that makes it very easy to use UPS to ship, so I did it that day. I was rushed for time and I though I would try it out. Well, it DID work...

Yesterday a UPS truck pulls up to the house and hands me THREE starter kits for UPS shipping.

There is only one of me, and only one account.

The starter kit is full of flat envelopes for overnight and 2nd day shipping of documents. I was selling packages of stuff on Ebay - and I'm not even doing that anymore.

They probably paid more to make up these starter kits than I paid to ship stuff.

I'm going to use the box one of them came in to ship something out via Federal Express - should be good for several laughs as it goes through their system.

Might not be such a good idea. Postal employees have been known to be less than kind in handling UPS-stamped boxes that are sent through the mail, and UPS is known to be a bit brutal on USPS priority mail boxes and envelopes that are sent through their system.

In this case..

They could literally run over the package with a truck and not damage the contents. Besides, this isn't going by either of the services you mentioned.

UPS has already destroyed property of mine, and USPS has both destroyed adn lost items. At this point only fedex has a clean record.

That will be interesting if you send that.

I thankfully haven't had any packages lost in the mail. Damaged, I have. The last Huzzah! came all ripped again. The book was thankfully okay. I'm always worried when it comes to shipping artwork. I make sure to back it so that nothing can bend.

BTw, you guys REALLY need to update the Huzzah! site. There's cover dates that are off and the old cover from the last issue from #46 is there also. huzzah.org doesn't always relocate to Live Journal too.

Well, it wasn't UPS, but I got it in perfect condition! n_n

Just wanted to let you know I got my copy of .357 in the mail yesterday, and thank you for getting it to me so quickly. I also left you positive feedback on Ebay. n_n

Take care!

I am SO sorry

Mr. Dutton,

I am so sorry about what happened with my paypal payment for the .357 comic book that I purchased from you on Ebay. There was a misunderstanding with my bank, which I have cleared up. Paypal will resend my payment in three days from today.

Again, please accept my sincerest appologies.
