Enter my mother, who had an extra Cingular phone that'd never been used. So she mails it to me. Now, she sends it Express so that it can get here the next day (I'm in Maryland, she's in Mississippi). I don't know why she sent it Express cause, honestly? It wasn't that dire, but eh, it's my mom.
So she tells me, "It's supposed to be there tomorrow by 10 am." And I'm like "Okay" and I make sure someone will be there to receive it since I was going to be at work.
Get home? No package, didn't even come with the regularly scheduled mail that afternoon.
The next day it did show up, however I was about to really start in on a rant because when I checked the mail, there was a slip in the box saying I'd have to go pick up my package from the post office. Yet, when I came inside, there was the box my mom had mailed me. Not sure how that happened, but it did seem a little annoying.
So the whole point is that it came a day later than it was supposed to and yes, this isn't the worst service and yes it wasn't dire but?
My mom spent $20 on shipping the darn thing when she probably could've just spent $3.85 for priority and it would have gotten here almost as fast.
I think I'm mostly annoyed on her behalf.
