I stopped in today to mail a package for work through FedEx. I already had a prepaid envelope. I asked for supplies, since every time I go to the drop off boxes in New Castle they never have supplies. The man asked me how many envelopes I would need and I said 2. He said he didn't have that many so I only took 2. He said he could give me some boxes as well but again didn't have that many. So I said no that was ok. The ONLY thing the gentleman did for me was tape up the box that I brought in to mail my package and provided a clear envelope for my label. As I was leaving he asked me for $1.00. I said for what? He said for whatever you want it to be for. I told him I was confused, I don't understand because I have a prepaid shipping label and I shouldn't have to pay for anything, I only stopped in to get supplies and I will gladly take the package and put it in a FedEx drop off box like I normally do. He said no that was fine, he just won't get paid for his work. I said what so you are basically asking for a tip?! He said we ask for $1.00 to cover us being open for you and to have our lights on and stuff. We are not FedEx or UPS we are a shipping depot. Ok.....but I went there to get supplies from FedEx because the drop off boxes never have any. He said well for future reference we charge a $1.00.
Well I will never be returning to that place again and I will be contacting FedEx and telling them about this.
I found this on their website, which is really interesting, because my package was FedEx!
