Is he/she seeing someone else ? the first option is to ask him or her directly , If he/she says yes or you have a feeling that he/ she is really cheating then you have a lot on your plate to deal with now. But I think it is very common for them to say no, even when they are, so a no answer isn’t much help sometimes. Think about it, if someone is cheating on you behind your back it’s because they don’t want you to know. Either because they want to have their cake and eat it, or because they think of it as just a fling, or because they haven’t made their mind up whether to leave you or not and are trying to decide. I don't think you ought to wait around or trying all sort of apps before you have this done, as it might not work out and it might as well waste your time, you should talk to a professional like KEVINMITNICK7410(at)GMAIL(dot)COM who can help you retrieve your husband's Facebook,whatsapp,text messages ?

FEDEX is a very bad company .. for 3 times (out of 3 times) i recieved products that were my own (from holland to colombia) and everytime i found some broken goods inside the package... they tear up packages rudely as they want to look inside ! and even my old nintendo 16 bit and sega saturn were physicly broken because they could not get the screws lose of the nintento .. so they just literely riped it apart !!! .. NEVER USE FEDEX AGAIN !

Arent we gonna reach a point when everyone cant just get exactly what they want all the time. It just seems like its unsustainable. Its amazing that this works but wow. Pie by plane.....
nicole mckillop (13 days ago)
That pie would have been decimated being shipped in just that box no stabilizers or anything going but he has a point that the shorter the shipping time the less handling it goes through. I always recommend two day for fragile shipments

I wish they did a video on the $3,000.00 vibration workout machine that my trainer purchased online and was broken by FedEx couriers. The shipper of the item filed a complaint with FedEx, and they did not accept liability. FedEx essentially told the seller it was not their problem. He was forced to eat the cost of the machine, and send another one fully assembled. I look forward to the day when Amazon builds it's own courier service to compete with FedEx. That'll be the day I NEVER use FedEx again!
Shark Guard (19 days ago)
Seriously why are you so greedy?
patrick martin (21 days ago)
Total BS if all the packages were small that would be great but they don’t show one box of chewy cat litter or dog food . Or. One heavy piece of furniture or big screen TV ‘s , if all we had were small packages like they show the job would be a snap. The weight of the packages are totally out of control .

Just received my package from fedex today that arrived looking like it was ran over by a car, attacked by a dog, and then set on fire. Anyone have any idea what might have happened? Do packages sent in bags ever get caught on the conveyor belts? It arrived filled with grease, a huge hole, and multiple areas look burned.

3:14 It's not a tarmac. Coincidentally, 3:14 = 3.14 = pi = pie.
Diego Perez (1 month ago)
Аfter seeing so many movies which had FedEx featuring in them advertisements, YouTube videos, I decided to give it a go. Well, what can I say - FedEx costs a lot more than Royal Mail but the result is pretty atrocious. I could expect such customer service from a 70 year old communist grandma working for Russian Post but not from a famous american company...

I worked for both Fed Ex Ground and UPS. Unless you ship it air, don't expect it to survive shipping unless you pack it well enough to drop it 6 ft on to concrete and it survives unscathed.
Tenzin Ngodup (1 month ago)
I worked at UPS warehouse & my experience tells you, there is no package thrown, drop or mid handled. The work load used to be so cray that, you have no time to Handle with care.
Angela Frazier (1 month ago)
Yes, I can't believe that pie lasted that long without it being destroyed. Yes I worked there for 20yrs and u have to see for itself what goes on. The matrix is where I worked and wasn't anything nice. When I got finished in my area had to head to the airplane to load it. I am not saying I didn't enjoy working there but it came with its advantages and disadvantages. I miss some of my old coworkers and the guy that was talking with the hat on was one of them. We had tourist coming up there every night. They wanted to see what process the packages go thru. Some of them were customers and wanted to know why there pkg is missing or why it was destroyed when it got to it's destination. But overall its a great place to work.

Yeah we all know that pie didn't survive the trip and in a real situation that pie would of been thrown around and smashed by the end of its trip. but for video and viewing purposes they ate a different pie at the end.

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.

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.
