I use Fed-ex online and I usually just have shipping boxes sent to my house.(free of charge) I recently ran out of boxes and didn't want to wait for a delivery so I went by the Fed-ex Kinkos on Douglas Blvd. in Roseville California to pick some up.
The guy at the shipping counter refused to let me take them unless I shipped through their store, claiming that they had to pay for the boxes. Really? So the hundreds of other times Fed-ex stores have let me take them, they were just letting me walk out with something that cost them money?
It was a pathetic attempt at forcing me to ship through his store. I'll never spend another penny there.
