After missing the delivery of my repaired 360 (note: signature in person required!), I drove over to my UPS to get the package. While waiting for the box to be retrieved, the customer service person noticed the shipper field on my missed delivery notification read “repair center.” With only that clue, she asked me, “does this happen to be for an Xbox?” I told her yes, and we both laughed. Apparently I’m not alone in my broken 360 woes. She informed me that she has seen hundreds of these 360 return boxes.
This just goes to show how widespread the problem is. Think about how many electronics there are, and how many repair centers there must be. UPS workers see “repair center”, and they assume its an Xbox. That’s pretty damn bad.
