So I told our logistics people ship it FedEx; they looked at me really funny. The hardware showed up 2 days later. When I told my UPS contact it was coming FedEx he said "good idea". The issue he finally admitted to was, there's a standing rule that after a package processing shift, if there is a package left in the facility, someone gets their ass kicked. A FedEx package sticks out like a sore thumb at a UPS facility...

Someone saw the FedEx package, said WTF, and actually read the FedEx ship-to address.
But how does that relate to it getting lost three times by UPS?
