(no subject)

Dear FedEx,

You suck.  

There is NO WAY you attempted to deliver yesterday at 5:30pm because we were both home and standing in the kitchen which is next to the front door.  The doorbell did not ring.  The dog did not go apeshit at the sound of the doorbell.

There is NO WAY you attempted to deliver a package, as your door tag indicates, at 10:23am this morning because I was right next to the door - watching tv in the living room. Again, the doorbell did not ring.  The dog did not go apeshit at the sound of the doorbell.  (Gotta love that open floor plan.) 

I killed a day waiting for your arrival.  Now I have to kill yet another day waiting for you.  It doesn't help that you say I can pick the package up at 5:55pm when you close at 6pm.  And, with no local phone number, there is no way I can ask you to just leave it at your facility so I can pick it up.

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you to geek domestic!  I just called the 800 number, said "Agent" and found myself talking to one of themost hellpful and upbead people I've ever talked to.  Thankfully, she was able to make a not to let them know I'll pick it up in stead of waiting around all day.
My Point?

Update on the public school thing

So my dad went in to talk to the State's Attorney today. Let's just say my sister is fine and the school is in deep shit.

The SA started off by asking "What's the problem?" and my dad let him have it. He told him about the kid who was harassing her and the pervy student teacher that likes to oogle the girls in their gym clothes. He told him about the lack of security at the school as well as their inability to properly handle a situation like this.

My sister got a clean slate and the school is in sooo much trouble. They're investigating the school and the student teacher. From now on, if my sister feels uncomfortable about anything anyone does, she has a list of numbers she can call to get her right to the SA. He isn't taking the situation lightly. I'll have more info later as the rest of the situation develops.

Its about damn time something is being done. Now we just have to sit and wait to see if the SA follows through. He listened to my sister tell her side of the story and my dad said he seemed genuinely (sp?) disturbed by the situation. She feels better knowing something is going to happen and that her dad isn't going to go to jail. I feel better knowing that too. My dad is just upset because now he won't get his vacation. lol.
