I know this issue has come up a few times here and there, but I think it's time it got its own thread. I just went to check on a wine.woot shipment and was startled to see that it had been sitting in a warehouse in Bell, CA over the weekend. Lo and behold the problem is FedEx Home. They only work Tue-Sat, so they tried to deliver to my business address on Saturday. Of course nobody was here. So now it sits in the truck all day Sat, and in the warehouse Sun/Mon before going back on a truck Tuesday.
Here's the issue - we're stuck between a rock and a hard place. We mostly have to use business addresses so that somebody of age is available to sign whenever FedEx decides to show up. So why are we using FedEx Home?! If we're shipping home, then we need to be able to be home whenever they decide to show up.
This whole situation strikes me as rather illogical...
(Yes, I know one can redirect to a FedEx location but that is rather inconvenient for me.)
