Haha. I just couldn't stop laughing because she was so serious when she asked.

Well, I think my BCM upper will be here tomorrow. After a UPS screw up, that upper has been to quite a few places. It's been to both Chicago (well, a few of the towns that are basically connected to Chicago), and (South) San Francisco, plus a lot of cities around them, so I'm going to have to wash the liberal stink off of it when it get here.
Is it me, or is UPS screwing up WAY more than usual?

I probably would have gotten here faster.

What sucks is that if UPS would have got of their asses and did their job, I'd have it by now.
The wrong address ended up on the package (shipper said it was UPS' fault, I really don't care though. Accidents happen). I caught this mistake late at night, and emailed the company I bought the upper from. They have AMAZING customer service, and emailed UPS very early that morning. By this time, it had made it just outside Chicago.
So I waited, and waited, but it still had the CA address on the UPS tracking system. (It was headed to a town North of San Francisco). So what did UPS do at this point? They let it take a 3 day trip to California.
So I called UPS, and they told me that the package had to go to the wrong address before they could send it to the correct address. WTF??? That made no sense to me.
So it ended up going from San Pablo, to South San Francisco, and then to Santa Rosa before going BACK to San Pablo. It took 3 days to make this trip around the San Francisco area that could probably have been driven within a few hours.
Finally, it left California, and was on it's way to Texas. This trip took 2 days. It arrived in Mesquite today, and has already left headed towards me.
Overall, this experience lasted (counting tomorrow) 10 days, and that package has traveled about 4200 miles.

I like USPS better.

If you hear a helicopter when it arrives, be afraid. Very afraid.

Don't be so sure about that! It probably would have had a few rounds put through it before it made it back into the system on the way to you!

That is seriously messed up! I once had Fed Ex do something similar, I had ordered 5 rolls of insulation when I was re-roofing the house. Each roll was 72" long and about 2 feet in diameter. they all loaded on the truck from Colorado and somehow 2 of the rolls got separated in Utah and headed north from there. we got them a week later than the other three. WTF? The company that shipped them was about to send me two replacement rolls when we figured out what happened (I would not have minded two extra rolls though!!)

As long as you cleaned her up, and oiled her, that would have been fine with me.

That's crazy! I wouldn't think something that big would end up being separated.
