How accurate is UPS on their estimated time for next attempt with delivery?

I looks like I'm going to have to take some time off work to accept a package for DD#2  :-\

Appears to be a CYA move: an adult signed for the package vs just anyone. I've signed for a lot of packages but they have never asked to see proof of my age.*

Are there laws in your area about buying / transporting  knives / weapons? If so, hair cutting shears may count as knives for the purpose of the rules.

I've heard of more than one murder performed by library, photo, or other long & sharp shears - so they may indeed be categorizing them as potential weapons.

Betelnut:
How willing are nail technicians to take on really nasty nails?  My toenails desperately need professional help but they are in very dire straights.  I assume that nail technicians have "seen it all" but I am still scared to go in for a pedicure with them in the state that they are in (fungal, one black nail, long and sharp, uneven).

Any assurances that they will help me?

newbiePA:
They may not work on nails with a fungal infection, due to the risk of cross contamination.  I would call and ask.

Carotte:
Here a podiatrist also takes care of skin and nail conditions, he might be a good first step in order to have you feets healthy enought for a nail technicians.

jpcher:
I agree with both newbiePA and Carotte. I think that going to a podiatrist first for the severe problems will at least give you a clean bill of health so that a pedicurist will be able to fix the rest.

I get a pedi maybe once or twice a year and my feet are in pretty bad shape when I finally do go -- cracked skin around my heels, long/uneven nails, heavy cuticles, etc. -- they are clean, but not pretty.

I've gotten some brief questioning looks from pedicurists, but they do a great job. Often suggesting creams and regiment (which I never listen to :-[). They are always polite and never disparaging.

They want you to come back, so they will treat you well.
