FedEx asks for Forgiveness in Advance

NY Daily News

­­­­­­­­By Terri Lynn, SouthFloridaReporter.com, Managing Editor, Sept. 22, 2015 – The Pope arrives in the U.S. on Tuesday and hundreds of thousands of people are making plans to attend his events or just try and get a glimpse of him and the Papal motorcade.

Many have planned this day for months. For others in the Nation’s Capital, the “City of Brotherly Love” and “The Big Apple,” it’s business as usual.  That means going to work and handling the day-to-day tasks, like over-nighting urgent paperwork, packages and documents.

Living up to their motto of 1971, “when it absolutely, positively, has to be there” FedEx will need a lot of divine forgiveness.  FedEx says on their website, they will be operating during this event, although customers “may experience service delays and disruptions in these areas because of local restrictions.”  At least they are upfront!

The bottom line…If you are expecting something important to arrive in your hands this week, it might be late.  Oh, and shipments delayed due to the papal visit to the U.S. are “not eligible for a refund or credit under the money-back guarantee policy.”
