And that's why I don't use UPS, slower than USPS, less reliable than USPS and more expensive than USPS.
parents own a Import Repair Center, and I always wanted a Chevy Tahoe..Your Dad is a mailman, and you use UPS? :r
That's like a kid who has a Dad who runs a Chevy dealership buying a Ford.
UPS can send a 1 pound package from 90210 to 06032 in 2-3 days for 4.80?You are clueless buddy. He used the UPS STORE, which is a franchise operation, independently owned and operated. And UPS has the fastest time in transit maps of any of the carriers, including USPS. The only time the post office EVER gets something somewhere faster is if it is part of a contract UPS cargo load (they lease cargo space on UPS transit lines sometimes) or if it involves a saturday delivery. Otherwise, espouse some truths or bring the facts to the table.
.So, I'm #5 in kgoings' Win a Humidor contest.
I don't have any 5-finger bags, so I food-saved the cigars I was going to send him and took that bag to the UPS store. I told the guy "I need a box and some bubble wrap to send these cigars."
He replies, "You can't send cigars, it's illegal."
My reply was "Why? It's not like they're Cubans. I just bought them last night!"
I wound up having to buy the box and bubble wrap separately, leave the store, pack the box, come back in, and say "I'd like to ship this box."
He asks, "Oh, and you're shipping gifts?"
Me: "Yeah, gifts."
So, is openly mailing cigars against some kind of rule or law, federal or otherwise? Or was this guy just giving me a hard time?
