Ever Wonder Why??????

I've always questioned why they ask for a phone number when you fill out a shipping form for FedEx?  Well today I got that answer.

About 45 minutes ago, the phone rang from a cell phone number we didn't recognize.  Guess who it was?  It was the friendly FedEx delivery man calling.  Was he calling for directions? No.  Was he calling to see if someone was home to sign for the package?  No.  He was calling because he was stuck in a snow drift down the road from our house and wanted us to come dig him out and pull his truck out of the ditch. 

It would appear that when you are stuck in a snowdrift/ditch in North Dakota, you don't call your company, AAA, or a tow truck, you call the person you are delivering to.  I guess if you want your damn package, you'll show up with a shovel and tow chain!

THis just confirms my reasons for NEVER moving out of Texas!!! Girl, that package would have never arrived at my house, I'd have let him sit it out in the snow!

Hilarious! Lets hope he never goes in the ditch when he's delivering to your neighbor. She might leave him til April :)
