flying pony express

when i was at work today i would occasionally take out the fedex reciept from my mailing off my hard drive this morning and read the legal terms and conditions on the back (hey, it was a slow day, ok?! ^_^;) some things i got a kick out of…

We won’t be liable:

  • for loss, damage, or delay caused by events we cannot control, including but not limited to acts of God, perils of the air, weather conditions, acts of public enemies, war, strikes, civil commotions, or acts of public authorities with actual or apparent authority.

    what? you mean that the fedex pilots can goof off in the cabin and blame it all on turbulence, a “peril of the air”?! and what’s this bit about “public enemies”?! al capone is going to suddenly take an interest in my hard drive??!!

    *crickets chirping*…

    yeah. well, it was a slow day… can you blame me? it seemed funny at the time… ^_^;;
