the lift sent chills up my spine. The UPS Freight driver told me he was told to make my delivery last. I muttered my disappointment but then guy said he didn’t know why. He apologized as he was aware of what he was delivering. All was okay, the box was here and I was about to venture into unknown land. Then as he pulled the pallet jack to the back of the truck I saw it. It was blaring out at me, laughing…a huge gaping hole in the box!! NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO:cough,cough::OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo. (Picture Ralphie here, in that scene where he’s…oh nevermind).
Anyway, I watched as the driver, pallet jack and bandsaw descend from the back of the truck on the lift, I told the driver what I saw. He said he saw it too when it was loaded onto his truck. We both made note of the damage and I went to reach for my handtruck. I was thinking I was going to have to haul that mother up my 20’ driveway! ALL THE WAY!!! BY MYSELF!!!! Whatever!
Anyway, the UPS driver was a nice guy. (I swear he had only had this job for about an hour when he offered to use the pallet jack to drag my bandsaw into my garag…er…shop.) He helped me get the box off of TWO pallets it was on. It was too funny to watch me wrestle the box open to try to find the manual. Next will be how to put a bandsaw together.
Oh and photos are on the way, the camera battery went dead! ::insert funery music here::
