I know, old news.
I made a purchase on ebay, and they sent Fedex with a required signature (I can't even sign the little slip & leave it at the door - someone has to sign in person). Fine. I miss the first delivery because no one was home. I call Fedex & ask them to hold the package, since their big local shipping facility happens to be right on my way home. The next morning, here's what I see on the status page:
Well crap, is it held for pickup, or is it on the truck? I call them up - "Oh, I'm sorry sir, it's on the truck. You can't pick it up today." Well, my wife is home most of the day today, so maybe I'll get lucky. I check throughout the day - no delivery, no delivery. Then it dawns on me that the idiot on the phone must have been wrong. By now it's 4:45 - I hop in my car & tear over to the facility, and get there (of course) about 5 minutes after they close. The guy at the desk can't even check on it since 'everyone has gone home by now'. I call the 800 number and they say, "Oh yes, it was held at the facility for you to pick it up." With my luck they'll probably put it back on the truck today & I still won't get it.
I need to get a Paypal confirmed address at work, so people can just ship stuff here. What a hassle.
