I wouldn't pay $28 to ship and insure a bar of gold.

Shipping is among my least favorite services. It's the only one I know of where you pay to ship something, but if you want to make sure it actually arrives and is not damaged, you have to pay extra. It's like paying for a haircut upfront, and they may or may not cut your hair, and may or may not cut it in the style you want unless you pay extra. What other business in the world charges you up front for a service that they have no obligation to even perform? Perhaps cell phone contracts?

As efficient says, refuse delivery. Both those idiots gotta learn (UPS and the dude).
