UPS has wasted 17 hours of my time by insisting that I be home to receive a delivery and then not delivering it. How do I sue?

For someone who values their time as much as you seem to, you appear to willing to waste quite a bit of it filing a suit with no damage and no quantifiable damages.
If you need to do this, go to your local Small Claims court. Expect to lose.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
Yours is a complaint leading nowhere. Your time is not a legal element of damages.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts...
