    Looks like the slowdown is nationwide:

    FedEx Corp.'s second-quarter earnings fell 6% because of a weaker U.S. economy and higher fuel prices, the shipping-services giant said Thursday.

Which meant that this dolt had been driving around in the 20 degree weather with it in the back of his truck all day. (Probably while he hung out in some bar.) Fed Ex tracking told me that it had been in his truck since 7:30 that morning!!!!!

    When I opened the box up..... all six discus were dead. The water temp. was 56 degrees.

    I feel bad for Al... All of his hard work has been wasted and these fish are dead because some idiot doesn't do his job.

    Anyway, Al will try again for a Thursday arrival. I'm going to pick them up at the Fed Ex location this time. I hope I cool off between now and then or things could get ugly when I see these Fed Ex clowns.....

    Okay.. Okay

    I think I probably owe the good folks at Fed Ex an apology. My little boy and I went out to the Fed Ex hub this morning to pick up the second shipment of fish from Al. The package was right there where it was supposed to be and the lady who helped us was SUPER nice. She let my son watch (and help) log the package in and sign it out to us. He was thrilled (He's two.)

    I think I've learned something already from this challenge. ALWAYS pick up your fish shipments at the Fed Ex Hub. It's only about 15 minutes away from my house. (I didn't know that!!) It puts you in control of how and when the fish get to your house!!
