Come rain or shine or winds or icy roads or hail or… Well, you get the idea. Whatever the weather my FedEx guy or gal delivers my packages. Period!
As a young mom of a newborn, I talked my boss in to letting me work from home. I was not a full-time or even a part-time employee of the company. Instead I was paid through an employment agency. I billed by the hour. In retrospect, my former employer took advantage of my eagerness to remain gainfully employed. You see I was never given a FedEx account number. Instead I was required to drive 30-40 minutes each way to dop off packages for shipping. I wasted a colossal amount of time on the road. I did charge for the time I was on the road. But, it’s really no fun to haul a huge bag of packages while pushing a stroller and wrangling a squirmy toddler. I have NO nostalgia for my pre-FedEx years.
After begging for a FedEx account number, my life was immeasurably better. No more driving in bad weather. No more waking up a sleeping baby. Add in the fact that my FedEx gal was lifesaver. Some days she was the ONLY adult I talked to the entire day…husband worked long hours plus coached high school volleyball and was in grad school. On a few occasions the FedEx gal held my baby while I stuffed packages in my foyer. I know this goes above and beyond the call of a FedEx guy or gal, but I was grateful!
After a hiatus of stay-at-home-mom-ness, I re-entered the work world as writer, blogger, product reviewer, and social media marketer. It wasn’t long before I needed to sign up for FedEx services. Want to hear something funny? My FedEx gal from years ago is back on my route. How’s that for good karma!
Not only does FedEx Ground cost 10% less than UPS Ground, but the new FedEx Office Print & Ship Centers offer customized calendars, cards, and stationery in addition to packing tips and assistance. I live out in the country, but on the occasions when this Country Mouse visits the city a FedEx Office Print & Ship Center would help me out with my shipping needs. When thinking about sending a package this holiday season, consider FedEx!
