The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Is My Package Coming or Going?

Man, UPS’s online tracking system leaves a bit to be desired.

I bought some stuff that was shipped via UPS Ground. It was sent from the warehouse on Tuesday the 8th, and although I was first able to check its status yesterday it still listed its delivery date as yesterday… even though it was in Kentucky that afternoon.

The good news is that the little package had a good time in ol’ Kentucky. Check it out:


Now that it’s settling down here in town (it arrived this morning), I hope it got that out of its system. Seriously though, why did my package come and go so much yesterday? Was UPS that confounded by this wee box?

Now I hope they do the delivery right.

We had an irate customer awhile back because UPS sent something from Montana to Denver via Florida. I don't know how that happened.
