I HATE FED EX!!!!!
I order my new set of poker chips last monday, they ship the next day on Tuesday, I usually get UPS shipments a in a few days so I figure that Fed Ex is the same way. So I plan a hold em tourney at my place since the chips is really the only thing I need since I already have a poker table, I have regular crappy chips but I wanted the good ones!

well anyways, its saturday morning and I'm wondering why my chips aren't here yet and it is still possible that I could get them that day. So I'm leaving for work at about 11 am, I walk out to the driveway and YAY! I see a Fed Ex truck in it!! so I'm like "just in the nick of time baby!" so the driver says "I got a package for ya, just hold on while I find it" so I wait for a few minutes while he's in his truck and he steps out and says "yeah, I don't have your package, but I was supposed to." so I'm a little dumbfounded, and he says "yup, I guess it got thrown on the wrong truck or I'm on the wrong route." something like that anyways...........I just say "well that sucks" and he asked me if it was important. so I'm like YEAH, EXTREMELY!
and he tells me that he can get it to me on TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is 4 days later. and I tell him I probably will not be home, and he says "Oh, I'll just leave it outside in a safe place." so again, I'm dumbfounded. I just say to him, what can ya do and I decide to call up the Fed ex place in town, and they inform me that it was scanned onto a truck but I told the lady my situation and guessed it was put on the wrong truck or that it was a "bad route" whatever that means.
She tells me that the drivers dont have cell phones or any way to contact them, but she would try to get a hold of the driver so I could get my package that night, and I asked her to deliver it to my workplace instead and she said that most likely I would get it that night.

and of course no Fed Ex guy comes to my workplace with 600 11.5 g clay poker chips in a shiny silver case ready to be played later that evening.

:banghead: :banghead:

this isn't the first time Fed Ex has sucked for me!

I agree, they should have done a better job. On the other hand mistakes happen. I would give them a call and tell them how I feel I just think that labeling poker chips as that is important is kind of funny.

I see nothing wrong with having good chips....a friend of mine has some. Sometimes we use them and sometimes we don't. Its really not that big of deal. A game of poker is a fun ****ing time to hang out and drink with your friends....

Anyone who makes a huge deal out of the quality of the chips is taking themselves to seriously.

I've played with both good and bad chips.

When you play Poker, you want to have a good atmosphere and the right mood. Having good chips, the right lighting and the ability to smoke inside makes a good poker game an awesome game.

Playing with bad chips is like going to a chiefs game without the drinikning and tailgaiting part.

Nice chips are fun to play with... We own both sets for depending how serious we get...We have cheap skip towne type chips and semi-expensive.. Every tuesday we have 8-20 people play, 20 dollar buy-in, two poker tables and a 12k count clay chip count... We bought the poker tables and chips for 350dollars... They gave us 500 dollars off.. So not a bad deal... Great way to waste 5-6 hours of my time instead of going to the bar and spending more money...

They are probably the same ones that check raise on a 7/4 off suit on the flop.

Bad poker chips? How much of a difference are poker chips seriously? Me and my friends played with chips the one kids father used in the 70s.

If they can't play with anything but the "fancy chips" then tell them to head over to Vegas to run with the big dogs instead of trying to act like they are Moneymaker or Fossilman and complaining about chips in a small buy-in tournament.

Dude, to each his own. Spending $80 on something that improves your experience of doing something you like on a daily basis is well worth it. Again, it is MUCH more pleasant to play poker with good chips (at least for me), undoubtedly you will be skeptic about it if you don't play much poker.

Well I don't disagree with that, we all have our quirks I guess... I mean I think it's cool to go for quality in life.

the weight, they don't get scattered around as easily. It's nice to have solid weighing clay poker chips when you play a lot of poker. it's also easier to count them, to stack them and what not. you have those thin little plastic things, they get scattered around.....it's just nice to have the good chips.

My friends and I once played using beer bottle caps for chips. Nevermind why... but, I had a glut of them at my house. We sorted them out by brand... and assigned dollar values based on prevalence of the various brands. It was, to be quite honest, one of our more innovative nights. I'm actually rather proud of it.

It's the aesthetic appeal. The way the chips feel and the way they look. They also set the right atmosphere (mentioned before). It's hard to explain, but there's a certain satisfaction one gets when handling good poker chips. The weight has to do a lot with it, plus the sound they make.

Hehe, yeah I have. I know that your point was that people should not refuse to play a game if the good chips weren't there, and that they should not drive across town to get their chips. I could agree with that.

I also know that you also ridiculed me with the Martha comment, for saying that I like poker to be played the way it should be played. Thus my comments that followed.

I'm ridiculing you for placing style over substance. Poker "the way it's supposed to be" hasn't got a goddamned thing to do with the lighting, your cigar brand, or how expensive your chips are.

Yeah, we all like sex, but sex with a hot chick is better than sex with a [whatever you regard as not hot] one right?

My favorite part, feels exactly the same in both instances, according to years of research. The fact is, I don't care if We're playing on cardboard, with a flashlight and using Pringles and doritos for chips.........When I flop the nuts, your money will look just as good in my pocket.


KCCM.....It sounds like you're playing with a group of pretentious assholes to me..........sounds like maybe they don't have the skills to get laid, so they play poker all night with the guys, instead of a gal from the bah.

I'll be the FedEx guy is just getting even for the time he wore his John Deere hat into a restaraunt, and the waiter that was putting mrs potato head lips on the napkin dispenser was rude.

After you get the "nice chips" are you going to make them all refer to you as KGB?

Good for you. You have your opinion, I have mine. I believe playing with good chips, makes the game that much better. Being able to smoke inside (not many people allow that in their homes) is also very good.

You can stop exploiting the ligting thing, I was trying to show people the aesthetic effect of the chips, much like lighting would be used somewhere else.

You seem to think that I'm saying that one can't play poker without god chips. I'm saying, though, that good chips make it BETTER and it's WORTH spenindg $88 on them.

I'll bet you only play with the wsoP or Rounders on the TV and insist on twisting off your oreos and licking off the doublestuff when you've made your hand too.


Good Chips are nice, but in a "friendly" game, I'd rather play with Nice People instead of Nice chips..............If I'm playing against pretentious assholes, I'll go to the casino or a back room game and play for bigger money.

I agree. But why is it wrong to say that good chips make enough difference to spend $88 on them. Then when trying to justify that difference I get half-ass flamed, that's all I'm saying.

Good Chips are nice. I doubt anyone would dispute that.

Its just that those ghey guys on Bravo, that give truckers haircuts and teach them how to pick Cooler flannel shirts, could probably manage a poker game with non-expensive chips in a pinch.

I'm glad my buddies aren't pretentious arseholes.

Been playing with plastic shit this year so far. Still waiting for one of us to get some good chips. That's why I'm so loud about it, I appreciate good chips now more then ever, having played all last year with an awesome set.

nice, me and my buddies are just into poker right now. It's beating me up though, I stay up to 6am 4-5 nights a week playing poker, drinking my ass off and smoking too much cigarettes. but it's a great time! and I've won money

Well, at least it's a way to pass the time until someone gets that girl robot invented.

I'm another sucker that payed for the good chips. I think most card players would understand once they had a chance to handle thes chips. They are comparable in quality and weight to the chips used in casinos. There's a huge difference.

I'd liken it to playing golf. Some people would rather go out and spend $20 to golf a round at the small town, cow pasture, country club. Others prefer to pay $40 to play a round at a nice municipal, and others would rather pay $60 to play at one of the nicer courses in town. It's all hitting a little ball in a little hole, but different strokes for different folks.

All that being said, I don't think I would interrupt a game to get good chips, but I might postpone a tourney start until the good ones arrive.

they're really not, a holes man. they're all friends and co-workers, and it's fun to play poker with them. now when some of them get irrate when they loose, that's a little different. The only point is, nice chips are nice to play with and are much more preferable over the plastic ones. so if we're going to play poker for about 6 hours, a few times a week then f*ck it, play with nice chips on a nice poker table, smoking our cigarettes, listening to good tunes, watching sportscenter and when you loose early play some pool which is right next to the card table!

We use fedex at work to ship out very expensive specialtiy Medication. We ship everything Fedex overnight. Thousands of dollars of Tempature Sensitive mediation, if they mess up they dont have to pay for it.
Most of the packages get held up in Indy

Now to the DHL guy...

I used to think DHL was good until i jsut recently bought a flat panel off ebay. they took 4 extra days while it was stuck in utah.



They all Suck.

Did you ever consider using potato chips instead?

Matchsticks work really well because they're alot cheaper than poker chips and they still work really well after you're done playing.

Paperclips are another option.

If you have alot of tailoring shops in town, you could collect all their extra buttons and use them in place of poker chips.

Chief Chief
12-21-2005, 01:13 AM
Have you ever considered using bobbie pins? They're cheap at the dollar store, or you can visit local salons and ask for their extra ones or just pick 'em up off their floor.

Chief Chief
12-21-2005, 01:17 AM
Rubber bands are the absolute best though! They're better than potato chips because you don't consider eating them while you're playing. And they beat out matches, clips, and bobbie pins because rubber bands come in different colors and sizes. The downside of buttons is that most of 'em are different from each other in size, color, and shape so that you're unsure of each one's particular value.

Yep, rubber bands are the way to go!

Chief Chief
12-21-2005, 01:20 AM
...hmmm...rubber bands...that gives me another great idea...

You really ought to try betting with rubbers. Yeah, they're not cheap, but they do come in assorted shapes and colors. Plus, as an added bonus, they really come in handy when you're playing strip poker.

Maxim Did a article a couple of years ago about who was the best shipper,

They found out that fedex was the fastest but also didnt do well with fragile items

UPS was the worst overall

and DHL was the Slowest but took the best care of the package

Chief Chief

That's really strange...because...

I did a survey about who was the best STRIPPER:

Faye Decks was the fastest,
Yu P. Ess was the worst overall, and
Dee A. Chelle was the slowest but took the best care of my package.
