Any stories of awkward moments/ or employees before shipping or recieving frogs at fedex/ ups?
I call the corporate offices of my shipping provider every 3 or 4 months t make sure rules for shipping haven't changed. They never do. Employees do not have the authority to insist on opening your package (although they may refuse to ship the package). If I ever get a stubborn employee I reiterate the conversation I had with corporate, I give the name of the person I spoke with, I inform them that I've been given permission to ship my package as I'm complying with all the rules and if they want to reject my package for shipping they may call corporate, but they'll be receiving a VERY unfortunate discussion about they way I'm being treated if there are any further delays.... That's always settled it.Honesty does pay off...as I always label my boxes with " live tropical frog" and arrows up...and everytime Ive had every shipment accepted up until they hired this girl that seems to be 50% all there.... Not once has she not busted out the blade trying to open every box and making calls and even questioning her own boss who in person proceeses my shipments. And by the all not there remark, I mean does she forger seeing me there the day before and the day before that, or is she just another one out to get me? Should I let her open my box everytime and risk damaging insulation and ship a dead frog?
LMAO! We need to develop a tiny little muzzle for the male frogs.this wasnt funny at the time, but hilarious to me now. one time i went to ship at fed ex a couple years ago, and it was a male basti inside. so the guy is setting everything up on the computer....when the basti starts calling. the guy stops...
"sir, whats in this box?"
"sir, is there an animal in this package?"
"keep in mind i can open the box and check, and refuse shipping if its an animal"
"uh...its a frog"
"we cant ship frogs"
the look on his face when it started calling was really funny...now
