Had a package shipped via FedEx last week. The status has been In Transit, departed facility since Friday. Was supposedly going to arrive today, but typically it would change to out to delivery for that. The fact that it hasnt updated at all is annoying. Usually there are at least a few intermediate updates so you can at least see some progress across the country.

I need to sign for it, so it's kind of important to know wtf is going on.
If ya wanna PM me a tracking number I can see what I can figure out.

feeling sick, went to order tylonel and a thermometer through Postmates who is the only delivery service who delivers Walgreens. 50 minutes after I order and I get a notification that there isn’t a driver available

that is a horrible user experience. Tell me right away if you can’t find a driver

How do you not already have both of those things in your domicile?

I had a similar experience. I needed some vitamins which were out of stock on Amazon for another 2 weeks, so I ordered them from Walmart. The order supposed to be the standard 2-day from the warehouse shipping, but later that day they emailed me. "Good news! Your items are in stock at your local store and will be delivered by the end of the day!" I know my local Walmart does not deliver, so I was skeptical. Saturday passed with no delivery. Sunday I received an email saying my order was running late but would be delivered that day. Sunday passed with no delivery. Monday Walmart emailed me and said they couldn't find any drivers and were canceling the order. :face:

I’m too cheap to buy things that I don’t have an immediate need for

It bites me in the ass sometimes (like now) but it works for me

Too cheap to buy a 100 count of Tylenol but not too cheap to use postmates to pay someone to deliver a bottle of pills that costs less than $5?

It’s because no driver wanted that order. They leave it hang out there waiting for a driver to claim the job.

I had no idea Walmart does random deliveries outside of their paid grocery delivery service.

My wife ordered a couple of things from Walmart.com to be shipped to the house. She needed one other smaller item to get free shipping. She bought all three things and expected the box to be delivered in a few days via USPS or FedEx etc.

She gets an email the next day saying part of our order had been delivered to our door, and the email had a picture of our front door with the gray Walmart bag with the cheaper add-on item in it. :shock:

So weird.

Do any of your local grocery stores/other pharmacies have their own delivery services?

The way Postmates works, certain stores or restaurants require the driver to go in and make the order and pay for it using a debit card that's loaded with a balance that's equal to the amount of the order. It's more time consuming, and prevents drivers from accepting orders from other places that pay directly through the app, which are quicker turnarounds, generally less of a hassle, and allow drivers to make more money though volume. 50 minutes is a long time, though; the offer gets pushed to local drivers, and they have a minute to accept the offer, decline, or just let the offer time out. So that means potentially over 40 drivers rejected your order.

The order in which mrs meow takes eggs from the carton rustles my jimmies. So if it is two columns (A,B) of six (1-6), she takes A1 and B1 out. This making it lopsided as hell when half are gone. You take all of one column first then move onto the next. This keeping it more balanced for pulling from the fridge.

Mrs meow is correct. If you can't handle the 8oz container being lopsided than you have bigger problems

They come in a handy dandy carton. Why we wasting time moving them into a new container? Think of all the time you wasting moving eggs from a perfectly good carton to an equally perfect container.

Unless you make a pouch from the upturned bottom of your shirt and pour the eggs into it in the grocery store so you don’t even buy the carton. That’s probably the most believable thing going on here
