The ease of door to door service
became a quagmire of technicalities.
I wanted to return a box
Amazon scheduled a pick up and
all was well.
Or, so I thought.
I returned from an appointment
a return tag was in my door.
Good, I thought.
I have this thing about leaving merchandise
on my porch for random folks to pick up.
The label said the driver would return tomorrow.
He did me a favor. I put the label on the box
and put it on the porch.
I stupidly called UPS to ask
when they would return tomorrow to pick it up.
No, the driver should not have left the tag
No, the return label is no longer valid
No, I can’t just drop the box off at the UPS store in town.
Does UPS really have a clue?
The UPS customer service agent couldn’t tell me
when the last pick up was in my town.
I called the local UPS store and
asked them when their last pick up was.
They had the information and
said they would help figure this mess out.
My blood pressure was rising
Life is too short.
I’m writing to get this out of my system
My system is fried
like an egg.
