Re: [IP] UPS Delivery Not the problem - Yes it is!

As several of us have stated, UPS is called "brown" for a reason:  They 
stink!  I could go on and on about the times when I have received items 
in the boxes, where the the boxes have been destroyed and barely hanging 
on the item, or where the box was missing entirely and the item was 
damaged and had to be returned.  I could go on about how UPS does not 
keep as good of track of it's packages as FedEx.  I could talk about the 
MANY MANY times when a driver said he had attempted delivery, but there 
was no call tag, no phone call to my apartment, NOTHING.  It's not just 
you, Kathie.  UPS IS AWFUL!!! 

Although, you are partially correct.  If you had a choice, it would be 
much easier to simply get your insulin from a local retail pharmacy.
