I posted this on the radiohead thread, but it needs to be heard

My WASTE pre-sale ticket was on its way to being delivered to my home in Sunny Isles, FL, got the e-mails saying so. Come today, hmm I still haven't gotten it, let me track the order

lo and behold, the order has been delievered and signed for, yet I don;t have it! what the fuck???

contact the postal service, but what's the best they can do? it's already been delievered, its out of their hands, they offered for me to "file a complaint". thanks.

apparantly an R VALERO signed for it, checked the white pages, no such listing in my area.

so right now, at this very moment, it seems I spent $77 on heartache

shitty.

dude, contact the ticketing agency and tell them the situation. Everything is bar codes now so they might be able to track which bar code you got and cancel that ticket altogether and re-issue a new one. If not, go on a mass killing spree until you find the fuck who did it.

knock on all your neighbors doors, when one of them hesitates/stutters when asked if they received a package that wasn't theirs you can give them a neck punch.

if they were sly enough to just sign they may be prepared for that. it's a great visual though.

"did you sign for my radiohead ticket?"
"what?"

yeah I sent them an e-mail with that thought in mind

Do you live in a house or an apartment building??

Often times other people who live in apartment buildings will sign for things or take packages lying around just because they are complete bastards and looking to score free stuff.

Hopefully the ticket issuer has some kind of insurance in case this happens.

Also, I've had cases where the mail person said someone signed for it but nobody was there and then he brought it a couple days later.

I hope you get your ticket, that sucks.

sbessiso
04-09-2008, 07:55 AM
I live in an apartment, so I will snoop around, and ticket insurance? when I got them through WASTE, I don't think that was an option, but I honestly cannot remember

just send me positive energy, and if, worst case scenerio, it's gone, well, it's not the end of the world (trying real hard to be mature)

Ardentbiscuit

My friend has had problems were people took her packages and her netflix movies so she has a note on her mailbox telling the mailman to hold all special deliveries and packages at the post office and she will pick them up.

And if you find out who took your ticket definitely take action against them.

You need to contact WASTE via email urgently. They are normally very good about handling matters such as the one you are in.

I don't see why the ticketing agency won't be able to help.


Notice Suprefan isn't around to take his lumps. After hearing him scream for months at people for wasting their money printing their tickets at home, it sure seems to look like printing tickets at home is the best way.

Ron, maybe it's the lack of sleep talking, but your illegal alien bashing, even if it's in good fun, is irksome. This isn't the first time you've voiced an opinion like this and I'd think someone as supposedly progressive as you've seemed to be would be above such remarks.

Most people have deductables of at least $200. It's almost not worth filing a claim i'm guessing.

ThomThom
04-09-2008, 08:47 AM
I thought the same thing a few years back when my old car was broken into. My deductible was $500 for comprehensive, but my broken window alone was $380 not including the rest of the shit I claimed.

Sbessio, I had a similar situation last year, but instead of WASTE it was Ticketbastard. I had my virgin festival tickets on my PC months before the show, and hat yet to print them out. My PC got infected with a virus and crashed, lost everything on there, including my tickets (worth about 200). But I called ticketmaster and they emailed me new ones and just canceled the old ones. WASTE should be able to do the same.

SFChrissy
04-09-2008, 09:20 AM
I wonder if its a sign for me to go to either Lolla or Outside Lands??

p.s.-its funny you that you even have a lyric from that raconteurs song in your sig, i'm not dissing, I just HATE that song so much, it's the one that I HAVE to skip, but I digress

edit: but kudos for representing the Jack W., I have such love for him (hence my underwear thread earlier)

outside lands...you can camp in my back yard and fall asleep listening to the ocean!!!

I was in the same situation but it was computer hardware. And it wasn't USPS, but DHL. They delivered the package to some other person who signed with his last name, and I had never heard that last name in my whole life. I called dhl, then the store, and finally they agreed to send me a replacement.

2-3 weeks later, I also got the first package.

Just to echo what has already been said (and to promote your sanity), I will say that my sole experience with WASTE has been positive. I got nervous after ordering the In Rainbows Box Set, when it had been over a month and I hadn't gotten anything and I e-mailed them. They did respond and were about to send me a new one, when the original finally did arrive. They didn't even really question it, and were set to hook me up.

justinaqui
04-09-2008, 11:50 AM
can't you have waste void it for you, then just leave another one for you at will call? ive done it for coachella before. if ticketmaster can be nice enough, waste has to be able to pull that off.

Nice. You try your hardest to get to the bottom of this issue, sure enough, the bottom will get to you in the end and it will all be resolved with another ticket being mailed or the post office returning the original package because the first recipient was kind enough to return it to the post office.

Glad to hear your ticket is getting replaced. The post office fucks this stuff up all the time, they handle a lot of documents and even if the person is not totally incompetent, they end up mis-delivering eventually. A lot of people don't even look at the name when they sign (though the mail man should).

I hate Fedex for just that reason. The driver for my area is either dyslexic or just sloppy, he is always delivering my stuff to this person down the street (he almost always transposes the numbers in the address when delivering). It sucks because this other person is a slimeball and never willingly gives my stuff back.

sbessiso
