Defenestrate: to throw out of a window


Oh, how I wish I could do this with all of UPS right now. Why?

June 6
Delivery not made due to incorrect address; I call to correct address and am told delivery will be made June 10.

June 13
Second delivery attempt...not made due to incorrect address; I call and correct address again.

June 16
Delivery made...and package left in raging thunderstorm without plastic bag for covering. Product ruined. Call to report ruined product; pick-up scheduled June 17.

June 17
Pick-up failed as driver claims package was not ready...though it has been sitting on my porch all day, including at the time driver supposedly swung by.

June 18
Call at 12:30pm just to make sure address has really been corrected and is not causing confusion; 6:16pm, pick-up failed due to incorrect address. I call and lose my cool, resulting in a third attempt to be made later that night; 10:45pm, pick-up failed as driver claims package was not ready...though I haven't moved it from my porch since TUESDAY MORNING.

The package is still here. I really hate you, UPS. I really do.
