I feel kinda bad for the FedEx guy.

He just delivered a new squat rack, bench, bars, and bumper plates.

He was doing ok until he got to the bumpers, which looked a lot lighter than they were.

"What the hell is in these things?"

"Rubber bumpers."

"Well the car should be safe with these on it!"

Re: I feel kinda bad for the FedEx guy.

Haha. I didn't actually see mine get delivered, but I thought the same thing... especially when I saw that he actually stacked the boxes of bumpers up on my front stoop. He had to bring them up 4 stairs when he could have just left them in my lawn. LOL.

Congrats on the new equipment.

So...did you offer him a drink? If Seinfeld taught us anything, its that you have to offer these people a drink. Its only proper etiquette.

Re: I feel kinda bad for the FedEx guy.

I didn't see mine delivered, either, but the boxes that the bumpers had been in were completely destroyed. I'm guessing someone along the way tried picking them up by their corners. I hope there were no toe fractures involved.

All I had was a few muffin stumps, he didn't want them for some reason.

I don't blame him, the homeless don't even want those.
