Just read about some genius who decided to send some pot via FedEx. After he had paid and left, the FedEx employee, suspicious that someone would spend $55 to ship a package that had a mere "$100" value, opened up said package. $1500 of marijuana later, the police were called in.
Now there are lawyers involved asking questions such as "what's to stop a FedEx Employee from opening any package valued at under $100?"
The obvious massive stupidity and criminal issues aside, I too am left wondering about the whole privacy issue. FedEx would have us depend entirely on the "very invovled and extensive training" their clerks receive. Hmmm.
Maybe there should be a dog at the front desk as well. A human to weigh the package and tell you how much they're overcharging you... and a dog to sniff it.
