Is it just me or has the estimated delivery messages become completely worthless for everyone?
For a package last week, here was the sequence:
Message 1 on Monday: Estimated delivery Friday
Message 2 on Thursday: Your package will be delivered tomorrow!
Great! But the tracker shows the package still over 1500 miles away.
Message 3 on Friday morning: Delivery exception. No expected delivery date/time
Message 4 on Friday: Your package will be delivered tomorrow!
Great, but package still over 1500 miles away
Saturday comes and goes, no messages and no package
Message 5 on Monday: Your package is out for delivery, estimated before 12PM!
Message 6 on Monday: Expected delivery before 7 PM.
Package showed up at 6 ish
Then today for a different package.
Message 1 on Wednesday: Your package will arrive tomorrow!
Great, but tracker doesn’t know where it is
Message 2 on Thursday: Your package is out for delivery. Expected before 7 PM
Message 3 on Thursday: Expected delivery 1:45 - 3:45
Message 4 on Thursday about 2PM: Your package will arrive soon!
Great, drive home from the lake to go wait for it.
3:00 PM, check the tracker and the truck is not even close to my house, at least 20 miles away. Not optimistic.
Message 5 at about 4 PM: Estimated delivery 6:15 - 8:15 PM
Go back to the lake package-less
If you’re going to have a tool that predicts the time of delivery, you had better be close to right. It seems this is to work OK, now it’s just garbage. I hear there might be a strike at UPS soon. Go for it, UPS is obviously going down hill.
