UPS, you lied! Late deliveries..

United States
December 4, 2017 11:10pm CST
I am expecting some packages today and the tracking says out for delivery. It's now 9:10 PM and UPS delivered packages next door and across the street but not here. Don't play games with me UPS! Side note: UPS has been making deliveries quite later in the evening (probably due to the upcoming holiday). What about in your area? Usually it was latest 8PM, but now I'm getting deliveries latest at 9PM.

I have that problem with FedEx, but not UPS. When I receive packages from UPS, they are usually waiting at my door when I get home from work. So, that means the UPS guy is getting them to me before 6PM each day. So far, no late deliveries from UPS, although that may change when it gets closer to Christmas. But then again, maybe not...I live in a gated community, and during the weekdays the gates are open, but at 6PM each night they close, so UPS would have a tougher time getting in after 6PM.

I get more problems with USPS. This was the first time I had a problem with UPS (besides another incident in the past). But my packages ended up arriving today! Actually two of mine did and my fiancé was waiting for his as well with UPS and it didn't come the same time. 15 minutes later, a different UPS truck came and his was on that one. Lol. I read on the news UPS is running late / delayed due to Cyber Monday orders still rolling out. That's nice to live in a gated community. :)

@infatuatedbby I thought of you today when I got home from work and found a UPS package by my door. I had ordered a product from Amazon, and the UPS tracking number said it was scheduled to be delivered on December 13th, but it arrived today!!! This is why I love UPS (and hate FedEx)

@infatuatedbby It's also for safety reason that here late deliveries are not allowed. They can deliver from 7 am to 7 pm.

@LadyDuck 7Am is early! But I think 8AM to 7PM would be reasonable. Last time at 9PM they didnt even ring the doorbell. If I wasn't downstairs I would have never known.

FedEx is pretty pricey,? :) I had no choice, its the company paid via UPS. But UPS is backed up from cyber monday orders. =P

A friend of ours had me be his look out for a package he was expecting. He had to go out of town so I had eyes on his porch. I would look down the street and even walk several times to his porch just to keep an eye on things. Nothing showed up and an Email to the effect that the package had already been delivered 2 days ago, made him anxious and he called and asked if I was watching his porch 2 days ago and I said, Yes, three different times. Later on he contacted them and they said the package actually had not yet been delivered and the Email notification was a mistake and it might be several MORE days before the package will arrive. Still waiting and wondering.

OH MY GOSH! How long is your friend out of town for? That is so annoying right? Waiting and waiting and the package has yet to come. And in your case, says delivered when really it has not been! I hope it comes soon.

well, the delivers usually call us firstly when they are going to deliver the products, thus, normally, they won't put the wrong place, otherwise, we will call them when something wrong.

I haven't had anything delivered that late this year, but I have in the past during the holiday season. You would think that if they delivered packages to your neighbors, though, they could have delivered yours at the same time...

I guess maybe I have to wait until tomorrow. Originally thought the deliver person might have delivered to the wrong house because it's happened before. The way the house address is laid out, it can get confusing. But the tracking didn't update so probably delayed a day! And you're right you'd think they delivered next door and across the street, that I'd get my package too!

Usually these express companies delivery faster. If not, then they will not pay back for you anyway and you have to still keep waiting for it...

I have to deal with UPS daily because of my job, and while usually there aren't problems, it is no surprise really when something that is scheduled to be delivered (or picked up) at the shop either doesn't arrive or is sitting there still the next day. And this is their busiest time of year...the 'holiday season' is always a madhouse at the delivery hub if I have to go out there. But yeah...sometimes I wanna grab the driver by his face and just smack him around a bit.

My package ended up being delivered today! Actually .... 2 UPS stopped by within 15 minutes. Not sure if its the same one...... I got the two packages that was supposed to arrive yesterday today ... and my fiancé didn't get his. 15 minutes later another knock. Theres a news article today I read UPS is backed up because of Cyber Monday orders. I go to the post office a couple times a week if not daily and that is no fun... waiting in line

Yes, 9PM was quite late. I just saw on the news this particular company is delayed a little because of Cyber Monday orders. Today they delivered at 8:30 PM, still rather late in my opinion.
