Default Aaaargh! Frickin UPS!!!

{rant}

so I've been waiting patiently for a store to get my rims in...I finally order them and impatiently/obsessively watch the tracking page until they show up at my door.

Today, the doorbell rings and I see the UPS truck outside...I answer the door, and it's the dude with my brand new rims. As I run to the kitchen to get my wallet, he goes down to the truck to get the other 3 boxes...and then it happens...on my way back to the door I hear a horrible Doooooong noise and see a look of pain on the dude's face...he dropped one of the boxes, on its edge, on exposed aggragate (the rocky, bumpy concrete if you don't know).

So now my rim is screwed and I have to send it back and wait for a damn replacement. How can something make it safely to my house from California, only to get smashed 30 feet from my door?

yea, there's no way I'm paying for anything.

It's a set of rota subzeros (18s royal gun metal), so nothing too expensive, but still, money's money.

Damm, that sucks big time...

On a side note, that is a pretty cheap price for 18s, that is what I would expect to pay for 15s or 16s.

Anyway hope the idiot does not drop your NEW ones.....

yea, I actually think he dropped 2 of em, but only one had visible damage on it (I checked em all over carefully though) Another one had a bit of a nick that would be hidden by the tire.

Now i've got 3 rims and a set of springs that I can't do anything with until I get the replacement
