Because one persons experience if the most accurate representation of the entirety of the company and it’s ability to deliver packages on time and to the proper location.  Sorry to read about your hassles with them.  Obviously this is a personal vendetta against you and something you did in a past life.  I hope it gets resolved soon.

Does this mean that the next time my computer locks up or crashes that it’s S**T and I should post that people should never use a computer again?

I heard that UPS has an entire department dedicated to killing kittens.  Does your computer kill kittens?  Didn't think so.

Although I acknowledge your sacrasm font (and I'm actually amused to see that Ron/Marma have created an HTML tag for it), it bears mentioning that she is hardly the only person to have an issue with them and wish to vent...

Here

And here

And the list goes on...

Then of course there's www.unitedpackagesmashers.com

Or you'll note that googling "UPS sucks" returns more than 2 million hits.

She should probably have gone with FedEx since googling "FedEx sucks" only returns around 660K hits.

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with them, but considering they employ over 19,000 people in my home town, I'm inclined to keep using them. Helps to prop up the local economy. Not to mention, I've never experienced any substantial problems with them, unlike the USPS.

Yeah, but if you google "UPS is great" you get over 49 million hits.  Even "UPS is OK" gets almost 23 million hits.

And the final example of why these kinds of Google searches aren't relevant...

triathlons easy - 1.6 million hits

triathlons hard  - 1.3 million hits

UPS KILLS KITTENS?!?! I heard that they limited themselves to the slaughter of baby goats and lambs in their daily pagan rituials! I also heard they are the courier of choice for the annual Baby Seal Hunt in Canada each year! Someone should start up a petition or something!

It's up to 69 million plus now... however on the first page alone some of the results include "incline push UPS being a GREAT idea for lower back pain" and "warm-UPS and wrap-UPS"... now that I look at it... only 2 hits on the first page have anything to do with UPS.

On a different note, "newleaf is lazy" scores me 85K hits Surprised

MY satellite conked out for 3 minutes last night - NEVER USE DirectTV!!!!! They're SH*******T!

 

Moral of the story? Use DHL for international shipments. There is a reason why they are the No. 1 international transit company in the world.

Caveat Emptor.

Just did a google search on "hate children" and got 36,600,000 hits. 

Stating the number of web sites found on a topic is a meaningless thing since anyone can start a web site on any topic.

How about a web search on damaged luggage.  Obviously luggage gets damaged by “Hugo the Olympic luggage thrower” so then we either shouldn’t fly or at least should not pack luggage.
 

P.S.  I’ve not had any problems with UPS.  Ever.  And I send a lot of stuff from work via UPS.  Guess that means that UPS is GREAT and everyone should use them.

thanks for letting me rant. texoma and i have decided ups are part of a global conspiracy, along with cateye.

What does hating children have to do with anything?  My point was that she is a loooong way from being the only person to have a bad experience with UPS.

Besides I shouldn't be listening to you because "Ty is crazy" returns more than 1.5 M hits in Google. Laughing

ONLY 1.5 M hits for "Ty is crazy"???   I'm disappointed.

And, "hating children" has nothing to do with anything, just as I consider the vast majority of the search results of "UPS Sucks" (or any variation) have nothing to do with anything of facts, because people love to b!tch and moan about everything and will do so more often than giving praise.

Read something long ago about how people pass on good and bad stuff by word of mouth.  It was something like complaints told to 10 people were in turn pass on to 80 more people.  Praise told to 10 people was in turn told to 15 people. 

So web sites that are all about complaining I take with a shaker of salt.

Oh yeah.  ONLY 1.5 M search results??  I'll work on the craziness factor.
