Um, Okay, Fedex...

A funny thing happened to me on Sunday. 

I've been expecting an item that I ordered from The Foundary for awhile, but haven't been home to its accept delivery. While trying to request it be held at a nearby Fedex location, I was told by the anonymous operator that my package could not be delivered to the Fedex pick-up location because it contained...ready for this?

...Hazardous materials.
What, you ask, did I buy?

A car battery? 
Aerosol cans?

No, this:

Looks pretty dangerous, huh?

Fedex, I'm convinced you are dumb, as is the person who mis-labeled the rug while prepping it for shipment.

I want my rug, people! 


  1. Ha! Red alert, someone ordered another Dash & Alert rug. Scary for sure. I hope your treasure comes soon.

  2. I have been through it and back with Fedex- how dreadful!

  3. That is so frustrating! I hope you get it soon!

  4. Oh, how funny!! I'm sure that is so annoying...hope you get it soon!

  5. I'm waiting for some art prints, so I feel your pain. Dealing with those companies is the worst!

  6. How annoying! (And a little funny to look back on once you have your rug! Hazardous materials? Really?) I always have trouble with getting shipments but it is UPS that always gives me grief. Hope your package arrives soon!

  7. My brother-in-law works for Fed Ex, I'm sure he can clear this up. Ha. If only it were that simple. Craziness. Sorry for your troubles. And to think over such a cute rug!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
