I had the idea to send a cell phone back to the United States to ease the upcoming visit of a friend. Using their website’s store locator, I couldn’t find a Fed Ex in L’viv, so I wrote an email to the Kyiv office.
They promptly replied with a contact here in L’viv, whom I just called. She answered the phone with “hello?”
After a huge amount of frustration and confusion — she shouted “HELLO!?” every time I paused to think for more than half a second — I learned that to send a cell phone, I’m going to need a receipt and a photocopy of my passport.
I could not figure out how I would pay, or anything else, and I got sick of the woman, so I hung up.
Maybe I’ll try Meest.
