Nice work, Peridot. :cheers:

Thanks. In my experience the only thing worse than FedEx not delivering is FedEx delivering.

The local FedEx hub is awesome. Somehow stuff from out of state always manages to be on time or ahead of schedule getting to Birmingham... and then once the local hub has it the comedy of errors commences.

This made me laugh out loud, and cry a little inside. It's sadly spot on.

It's pretty intensive as resources go. I had to upgrade processor, ram, and graphics card to play it.

Oh, and by the way, 5000.

I feel the pain to a lesser degree. Fedex was supposed to deliver a nice package from Catskills Cellars on Monday, but they didn't come by until Tuesday. Not the end of the world, but a mite disappointing.

I've never had anything broken by FedEx, UPS, etc. (although USPS in Olympia, WA is another story - our carrier or local hub processing has punctured/crushed/dented boxes to a significant degree at least 4 times in the past year, though fortunately the contents inside were never damaged).

FedEx managed to break one of my bottles from Catskill Cellars. Julie was terrific about the whole thing and I probably need to go shopping there again real soon. FedEx.....not so much.
Catskill Cellars are wonderful to deal with. :cheers:

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I'm a fan of box jokes but I tend to get carried away.

There are some people here that are more delicate than others.

Wouldn't want to upset anyone by being a coarse drunk.

Yes, I lead with my face. :cheers:

My brother told me he has nightmares about breaking through things with his face and getting mangled.

He's less of a fan of boxes though. :laugh:
