****edit added:

The mishap occurred Wednesday when Chris Gallagher requested that a courier leave the anticipated package under the doormat of his Avondale home.

I still blame the owner. I would have found a way to make sure that a person was there to sign for those bad boys! Heck, I'd take a day off of work to ensure my tickets are safe.

the shotgun needs to be used on the guy who put two $1000 pieces of paper in reach of a dog, kid, or whatever. I mean, would you leave two thousand dollars in cash in a place the dog could get to?

As it turns out the courier driver should be shot...

The courier instead slipped the envelope under the front door.

Buddy accepted delivery.

Reminds me of what happened to my cousin, though it wasn't quite as bad as this. For Christmas gifts a few years ago, my grandma gave me and my cousins all $100 bills. Well, apparently my cousins dog likes to eat money and the day after he recieved the hundred bucks, he left his wallet lying on the floor and his dog ate it. They had to wait for the dog to poop it out to get the serial number and take it to the treasury. Well, since they couldn't get the full number on the bill they had to mail it all the way to Washington to get a new one. He eventually did get the $100 back

Really not that big of a deal. You call the box office, tell them what happened, and they issue you new tickets.

ATX
01-31-2008, 03:03 PM
We can't really blame the delivery guy on this one sorry. If you had 2 Superbowl tickets coming to you, why would you say just leave them by the door? Get them sent somewhere where you know you will be or make some kind of arrangements. I'm sure this dog has torn up other things in the past and if you know your dog is like that, tape the damn mail slot closed and put a sign by the door to leave them somewhere if you can't be there.

Maybe the guy who purchased the tickets has certain circumstances, arangements, obligations that wouldn't allow him to be able to physically recieve the tickets himself....

Everyone isn't able to take off work or have them delivered to their work place...

Maybe the delivery guy/delivery company should have just followed instructions. Problem solved.


I don't think you can blame the guy for making a specific request in order for this to be avoided and then the delivery company eff'ing up...

Maybe it was raining and the floormat was soaking wet? So instead, he slid them under the door in order to keep them dry. Who knows? Who cares for that matter?

If dude was able to afford almost $2000 for Super Bowl tickets (in addition to travel expenses), he could probably find some way to have them delivered to a safer destination.

That's not really saying much.

I could afford the tickets, and I'd have nowhere else besides my home where I could have them delivered seeing as I am am never in one place longer than two hours. And even if I were at my office I still wouldn't be able to have them delivered there.

But why am I putting myself through the ringer trying to find a delivery place when I gave clear instructions for them to safely delver them at my home.

So you don't think most Americans have $2000 dollars to spend ? Maybe not everyone has the desire to spend their money that way, but I'd venture to say most Americans have the available money.

But besides that, how do we know this man can comfortably spend that. He may be stretching his budget as I'm sure a lot of folks do when they want something badly.


Then why did you say it? :um:

It was in reference to the statement you made.

Saying that "he can "afford" the tickets" isn't really saying much.

I'm not sure how having the ability to make a 2,000 purchase equates to being able to have something delivered to your work place, or somewhere safe (besides your home) ?

Double Barrel
01-31-2008, 04:53 PM

No.

And it is a bit naive to believe that most Americans have $2000 in disposable income for an entertainment event.

I'm glad you're special and can afford it, though. I'm happy for you. See, a smilie to prove it. :)

It was in reference to the statement you made.


Okey dokey, if you say so. See, I'm still happy for you, too. :)

I'm not sure how having the ability to make a 2,000 purchase equates to being able to have something delivered to your work place, or somewhere safe (besides your home) ?

I'm not aware of too many places where an employee is forbidden to receive a courier package.

But I'm sure they exist, and I will defer to the obvious expert on the subject.

p.s. Look up the word "probably" sometime, and it could assist you in the comprehension of my original point. It is not a black and white statement.

Enjoy your trolling efforts and have a wonderful day. :)

I know a few couples out there with younguns that would be offended by the statement "most Americans can afford $2,000.00".. In fact, with gas prices the way they are, recession looming in the near future - I will venture to say that the majority of average Americans do not have $2,000.00 in disposable cash...

But anyway, that's way off the main topic...

I have my season tickets delivered to my office because I do not want a FedEx package sitting by my front door... If for some reason, I could not accept the package, I would have them sent to my folks house (Dad's retired and home all day), or a freinds office that could sign for them - for me.....
