You missed the part where they throw the package out of the plane, then stomp on it, play package soccer for a while, then sit on it, then lose it.

You weren't allowed to call it Christmas back then, but now we can thanks to DT who has put the Christmas back into the pie!

Wait a second... You take off from Memphis, TN and you land in Honolulu, HI in SIX hours!?! The plane had to average 692.8 mph (1,115 knh) over the 4,157 miles (6690km). That is very fast. Cargo flights are converted long-haul in this case and are designed for 0.84 mach or 767.2 x 0.84 or 644 mph. Those pilots were pushing the plane all the way there, not counting any headwinds. They had to average 90% the speed of sound ALL THE WAY THERE, which is unlikely. Try more like 8 1/2 hours.

What a load of crap. That pie was delivered un-smashed because some mainstream media did a story on it. However, your average person trying to get that pie delivered, it would have been smashed!

I work for UPS and Fedex workload is nothing compared to what UPS has during Christmas.
Pffft. Do adults seriously still belive in FedEx?

I think my package is stuck up someone’s ass because it’s been 3 days and it hasn’t shipped! Hopefully they can’t get that package out of there ass! At least there isn’t anything a little bit of laxative’s can’t fix!

How is that pie getting there perfectly? This is Fed Ex we are talking about....they always kick around the boxes.
Matthew Orndoff (1 month ago)
As far as the workers are concerned, it's missing the utter hopelessness, contemplations of suicide, and thoughts of "why didn't I just join the military?? It would be so much easier." Also the constant mantra of "fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck"

That is why every time i seen FedEx truck, i drive very slow in front of it in order to slow it down.
Astrosaur (2 months ago)
Do this without telling them what you are shipping and see how that goes. If you think they didn't give that specific package extra special attention, knowing it was being filmed, your nuts.
darthrib 12 (2 months ago)
I worked for FedEx for over 8 months and I can guarantee that pie wouldn't fucking survive for 1 second, FedEx is a greedy and uncaring when it comes to their workers so typically most of them would just give a shit about the packages
Shahzeboy 1 (2 months ago)
I wonder how many of those packages have drugs in them! I mean, they cant scan every single package thoroughly

Isn't food a prohibited item ? It's certainly on the fedex prohibited item list, cat Z , and if it got lost nooo compensation for you !! Z. Any food (including beverages) not completely enclosed by a container as defined by the Food and Drug Administration and/or food (including beverages) requiring temperature or other environmental control for the purposes of food safety. Any food shipment requiring temperature or other environmental control for the purposes of food quality is also prohibited unless packaged by customer so as to ensure that the food shipment remains within the appropriate temperature range at all times during transit.

I think until we see stuff like this ourselves, we dont realize exactly how many boxes are actually sent out and stuck in the same facility with millions of other boxes.

Fedex will literally go around your destination being 5 hours away one day, turn around, and your package is 3 states away sitting no were for dayz when it was already almost there, this fucking company is fucking retarded, I'd be better off hiring someone off of fucking Craigslist, I'll never give fedex another dime fucking retards I'll be cling these fucking does and demanding mu fucking money back mo excuse is any excuse for this stupid ass shit.

All comments are disabled for FedEx videos because of one reason they, "stink"! 2 stars on Better Business Bureau. They use an old-style GPS that is hopeless to find my house and there's nothing I could do about it. So I order stuff that is not being shipped FedEx.
