Here is a strange one, maybe someone here can explain what happened or I should say How did it happen?

To start I have this company that comes to my shop and keeps my nuts, bolts, screws, drills, paint, etc. bins full so I don't have to worry about it. I OK an order and one box comes in about a week later. A week after that I do not see the second box so I call the salesman and he tracks it down and tells me that it was delivered. So I look around, ask a few people, no dice. SO I call him back and tell him to fax me the tracking number, who signed, etc.

He gets that from UPS and faxes it to me. Now we get packages from UPS all the time so to remember what came in exactly on that day is next to impossible. So I figure someone walked out the door with it not knowing what it was.

I had told my cousin about this, seeing as he is the one that signed for it so the next thing I know he is calling me in my office to tell me that he just got a note in the mail along with a copy of the invoice from a company in NY saying that our stuff was mixed in with their order!

So it looks like the morons at this hardware company put the wrong shipping label on the box, OK, That I can understand.

WHAT I want to know is HOW THE HECK DID UPS TRACK A NON-EXISTANT PACKAGE RIGHT TO OUR DOOR ALONG WITH A SIG!!!????

Someone please tell me how! :confused:

How many packages do you typically receive from this company per week/month?

You should be asking UPS that question. I don't use UPS for reasons similar to that one.

It would be interesting to see a copy of that signature. If they doctored it up, that would be a crime, yes?

They suck. Watching how tehy treat carts of stuff in NYC only makes me feel better that I don't use DHL!!!! ;)
