I hear you, Gary, and I've had many experiences like yours  Most 
recently I ordered a DVD-recorder on December 15 and it was promptly 
shipped -- and I was provided with a tracking number. I watched its 
progress and expected delivery on the 21st; it didn't get here (it was 
listed as "rescheduled" on the UPS site) and I figured, well, maybe the 
next day or ... well, it won't be before Christmas, no matter, it was 
not a Christmas present.  But it took until JANUARY 6 to actually 
deliver it.  Mind you, on the days when the UPS list said "customer not 
home" I know I *was* home, because it was intersession.  I don't know 
what's up with them, but their service has really gone downhill in the 
last few years.

Of course, FedEx is only marginally better, but preferable to UPS.
