I've had that happen a couple of times. I can speculate that it was supposed to be on the arriving truck but it was never scanned. So it must (logically) still be on the truck which is now heading back to its starting point. Update the records to reflect that.

Truck ballast.

I suspect that it was supposed to be dropped off at my local PO and it just got late.

Also, delivery out here is by part time employees who use their own vehicles*

I did. Thanks. That's comical. Someone screwed up. It happens. Even USPS postal workers are human. Our dog doesn't seem to like postal workers either. Life goes on. If you need better delivery service than that, it usually costs more.

Your package started in Plaistow NH? That's right down the road from me. I could have picked it up and driven it to you faster. For a very hefty fee of course. You'll have it by Wednesday, and it'll be broken.

You know what's going on of course. The FBI searched the package and has found the explosives and pipe bomb parts ed ordered. They're just giving ed the runaround while they prepare the arrest warrant and organize the SWAT team.

23 hours.

I think that they probably dumped a shitload of mail in Myakka last night and it just got logged in.

Next will be "out for delivery"

I would really like to meet the management that approved the contents of the website. :De_Bunk:

Next update:

"Your item was never sent at all, and we have been informed by the shipper that they are on backorder."

I'm kidding, but sometimes I've been surprised how far I've gotten in the ordering process before getting notified that they don't actually have any.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I don't care how big those tires are, nor how low first gear is, it's slow going through the swamp. :p
