Yesterday I rushed around getting documents that required my original signature (and not a copy), so that I could overnight them to my attorney to meet a deadline for a court filing by today. The package was supposed to be delivered by 10:30am.
At 11:00, no package. At 1:00pm, no package. I call. The package will arrive by 2;00pm.
2:30pm, no package. The package had been loaded onto the delivery truck at 9:49am, for an address no more than 1/2 hour away - and at 3;20 (now), no package. I have missed the deadline and have no idea what the judge in this case is going to say about it. If my documents do not get accepted - if the judge penalizes me because of the missed deadline, I could lose between $500,000 and $800,000 for myself and my family.
I will sue Fed Ex if this happens. The worst part is - when I called at 1:00pm, the customer service person told me there was no way to contact the driver who had the package and had possesion of the package for the previous 3 1/2 hours. This is the most stressful, ulcer producing, anxiety provoking, F @#$@%ed up experience. Never again.
I live 2.5 hours away from my attorney - I could have driven there yesterday to make sure I didn't miss the deadline. I would have done just that. Oh my god.
I feel like throwing up. Seriously.
