I got a txt yesterday that said I was going to get a package delivered today between 8a and 9p. So I have been waiting around for it all day.

I just got a 2nd text that said it's delayed till Tuesday. Is this normal for Fed ex?

It happens. FedEx is usually pretty fast even without paying for faster service.

Getting a txt or that it's delayed? I've never gotten a text, don't think they even have my phone number, but do get delayed packages.

X-mas delivery crunch. Everything is delayed. FDX, UPS, and DHL are all swamped.

So I wasted a whole day waiting around for it. Nobody will be home to get it on tues as it requires a signature.

In my experience USPS priority mail is the worst tracking / delivery you will see. Doesn't matter the time of year. I generally try to get packages UPS or Fedex.

You can request to change the delivery date or adress I believe so someone is around to sign.

There should be an option to have it sent to a local Fedex branch or Fedex Office store so you can pick it up.

Bummer on the signature, I haven't had that in a while, but I sure would avoid buying anything that needed one. Is it something you could have delivered to work?

It happens. Could be because it's busy or weather or truck broke down who knows... If you signed up for text status updates you'll get text messages.

FexEx has been a mess the past year or two. I get everything with a signature delivered to the local FedEx office. Sign up for both FedEx and UPS apps delivery messengers, saves a lot of time.

My initial reaction was "noooooo, do not wait at home for a delivery like this" then I saw your later post.

Actually, I'll repeat what I just said, "do not wait at home for a delivery". If signature is required, you have two options, 1) wait at home all day or 2) have it held at a Fedex facility so you can pick it up on your schedule.

Just a general comment which applies to UPS, Fedex, etc: Combined, these two deliver 25 million packages every day (that's their average number and it's probably substantially higher at this time of the year). They will make mistakes, have delays, and so on. They still probably get in the high 90% of packages delivered correctly.
