@fedex has officially stopped caring. They're always late now, blame weather, the boogeyman, whomever then they won't let you speak with a person. Yet theyre laying off thousands. Someone needs to alert @FTC— Juucylucy2c (@juucylucy2c) February 4, 2023
Let’s be honest next you go grocery shopping and see someone who doesn’t speak English. Watch how they pay for their food. 8/10 times they’ll pay with food stamps and they’ll be driving a nicer car then the rest of us who WORK. I’m sick of it.— Leo (@boredwithInsta) January 31, 2023
