I’m just about on a first name basis with my UPS man. It’s like Christmas almost every afternoon when I get that knock on the door. Usually, it’s something mundane or utilitarian. Or maybe a book. But sometimes, it’s something really fun I was anxious to get. In any case, I’m always glad to see that boxy brown truck pull up at the curb. An unidentified Minnetonka, Minnesota woman wasn’t quite so happy to see her driver, though…
OK, she was glad he’d finally gotten there. But as foxnews.com reports (you decide) she was rather put out that it had taken him so long.
Officers were called to a residence Monday morning. The woman who was upset her package arrived late showed a gun and told the UPS driver he couldn’t leave.
Listen, deary, there are few things in life these days as reliable as UPS. Why the US .gov doesn’t just shutter the entire USPS tomorrow and split that sorry-ass operation between UPS and FedEx, I have no f-ing idea.
If your package was late, the chances that it was due to lassitude on the part of the men in chocolate are about as big as the chances that you’ve been religiously keeping up with your assigned meds regimen. You’ll want to redirect your shrew-like disapproval at whoever shipped the item to you and keep your heater in the house from now on, OK?
