When Deliveries Go Wrong

As twittered the other day, my Friday was not too good.  I ordered a 20-foot piece of 3 1/8″ line for our HD projects.  You know, a piece to cut up as needed.  Well, the carrier used was UPS Freight.  Here is what happened.

First, a week ago they tried to deliver to the studios.  Not.  I instructed the vendor to deliver to the transmitter site.  Unattended, so I required a call in advance to meet the driver.  Obviously this was not the case.  Delivery refused.

Then came Friday.  A fellow engineer calls saying UPS was trying to deliver something.  Again, no call in advance, so my assitant and I run up there.  When we arrive we see no truck which was not unexpected.  It’s what we saw next that blew our minds.  The delivery was made.  The driver THREW the box over the fence!
