One commenter on a post I wrote a few weeks ago had this to say when they received information that a package due to arrive today was delayed due to a train derailment in Vernon, Ca.
“This is all BS, I just got notice that my package due to arrive on 3-19-08 has been rescheduled due to a derailment in Vernon, CA also, how many derailments could there be, this is a ploy to excuse UPS of their wrong doings and screw ups…no doubt.”
Certainly this couldn’t be the same train derailment from March 6th that delayed my package, could it? https://www.johndball.com/worse-case-scenario-the-train-derails-but-thats-unlikely
Can anybody find any news article about these mysterious train derailments, or is UPS just covering for their ineptness to deliver packages on time?
