Hehe... this sounds familiar. I stayed home when mine was getting delivered. When Fedex' tracking page got updated to say, 'Delivery Attempted', I had a cow. That's when I found out that Fedex Home doesn't employ their delivery-people (contractors); and there was nothing forcing them to make a second delivery attempt if the first one went awry (in this case, if they knock on the door of the wrong house the first time).
I ended up having to pick it up at the depot the next morning.
Hope yours goes better. And enjoy it when it arrives.
