    Right now, UPS (Ok, so they're not small but...).

    I ordered something I needed fast by priority, with full delivery instructions. The shipper used UPS. UPS claimed they delivered it. What they actually did was dump it in a newsagents four miles away in the next town...

    This is driving distance. There's no public transport on that route. I am, for the PC among you, visually-impaired. (For the non-PC that's blind as a bat.)

    And UPS can't redeliver until Monday, when it is needed this morning and the collection point opens 5:30 to 9:00 *headdesk*. Seller gets one star. I get an hour and twenty journey each way.

    UPS: £6.00 shipping, the customer pays £20 in taxi fares.

    I guessed where this was going from Useless Parcel Service.

    Haha, Useless Parcel Service. That sounds about right.

    That's awful, @tirial. I hope you gave them an earful and they aren't expecting you to pay for the priority shipping. That's ridiculous. (PS. I had no idea it wasn't PC to say blind. Just goes to show how far behind I am on what's PC and what isn't.)

    Me either! I have a blind friend, she says she's blind (no vision at all), because she's not visually impaired. *I* am visually impaired - I wear glasses.
