Not. But it wasn't their fault. How could they deliver, since the office was closed. The delivery person left a perfectly legible hand written tracking number on the delivery slip. I called FedEx (Sunday at 5 PM) and was assured after a fairly long game of IVR, that they were planning to deliver before 6PM tomorrow (by default). The person asked for a phone number which I provided. In the beginning of the call, I was given the choice between French and English. The 0820 number is billed at about $0.18 per minute. The call lasted 4.5 minutes.
Is there some deep socialogical reason why here in Europe, SMS technology has been embraced where in the USA, most people have no time for it? In most European countries, you can get regular cordless and corded home phiones that send and receive SMS, yest apparently this doesn't even exist in the USA.
