Anyone care to guess?

What in the world did UPS do with this box? I mean seriously! That one end was actually formed by bits of cardboard and tape! Surprisingly the contents of this box were unharmed! How they managed to survive, I do not know!





My other issue with UPS is that they refuse to put my packages on the front porch. Instead they place them on the driveway in front of the garage doors. Everytime! They have to drive past my front door to get to the side of the house where the garage is! The front porch is covered--the perfect place to keep packages dry in this unpredictable East Texas weather--but noooooo on the driveway they go! The other day it was raining and Jason comes in the house with a dripping plastic bag. In it was a package from UPS. They had put it into a bag and TAPED it to my garage door! If I had opened the garage door from the inside (as I would have had to do to get out!), it could have been squashed or gotten stuck! What the heck? Another day Jason went out to find a box on the hood of his Jeep! Totally not cool!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe what that package looked like! At our home address, UPS was doing the same thing, except they were leaving the boxes on the front porch and we wanted them left on the back porch. After posting notes to leave them on the porch, to no avail, I called the number in the phone book, explained my plight and they finally gave me the local # to call, then after that, packages were delivered to the back, where I wanted them. HTH

Ours always comes to the front door, but they always come mangled too. The stuff seldom is hurt, so I guess they rely on that and keep smooshing! Maybe driving down country roads makes them angry?

Oh my gosh! Looks like they played football with it. I would call UPS and complain - not sure it would do much good but it would give you a chance to vent ;)

OH WOW! SO happy to hear that your goodies are all safe and sound! Mine are supposed to arrive this afternoon, while I am at work, not home, and it's SNOWING OUT!!!! Wahhh!!! Sometimes the UPS driver will put the box inbetween the screen and the front door... sure hope he does that today! Great layouts!

that is just crazy!!! Our UPS guys are friendly and leave it on our front porch and ring the doorbell.
I had a similar situation with a box from the USPS yesterday. grrr

That is so not cool! Sometimes the box I receive is a little banged up, but they always leave my goodies on my front porch and ring the doorbell or knock on my door. So glad your goodies were okay.

omw! glad the stuff survived...my priority stuff hangs off my mailbox in a bag so anyone that drives by can have it i guess. LOL!

good grief!
The whole process of loving that kit is also adoring the box from whence it came.
UPS are evil and must be destroyed.
Hopefully next month you will be devoid of the squished box syndrome xx
