fedex is better than ups links

so, i needed something here quickly and the vendor offered to ship via ups next day. it was delayed in southern california due to “inclement weather” whereas i got something from fedex today taking the same route. wtf? i’ve tried to give ups a chance to get more of our business but they suck at stuff like this. anyway, now that’s off my chest, enjoy these stories while you stay dry under a roof somewhere:
