DHL Hell!

So, my second FW3A is stuck in DHL Hell! It entered on the 29th and has not appeared in the USA yet. This is the one that I wanted to have show up quickly since it is my SST20 light and I am trying to decide if I want to go that route and order a copper FW3A. No special stuff like batteries, did not expect the delay, the first landed here in 3 days.

Convoy S2+, H17F, XM-L2 4C, lighted tailcap

If anyone is wondering, that's the Gravity Drive from the movie Event Horizon, and things do go very wrong.

These days I'm quite disappointed with DHL. My new D4v2 from Hank is almost here and now they fail to deliver it literally on the last mile to my doorstep. Whatever the latest status means, it is not being delivered. I guess I have to wait even longer.

They are so hit or miss, I am not sure why that is. Seems to me that it would always take the same amount of time to cross the ocean… give or take a day.

I thought it was pretty good, and I just saw it for the first time recently so it's fresh in my memory.  :THUMBS-UP:

It seems both DHL and USPS recipients have been suffering from “package hell” from time to time. I’ve had USPS packages end up in a “limbo” state… no updates… just “in transit, arriving late.” Then suddenly, it’s delivered. With one exception… a package that went to the MRC (Mail Recovery Center) in Atlanta due to a terribly stupid seller who didn’t put my name on the package, nor a return address.

DHL here in the UK are spot on.

Yodel is a pain, no customer service except via web chat.

 

Worst over here in London UPS, over the years 100's of items droped at a collection point, drivers can not be bothered to actually find the address.
