Whoa Postal Service!
I ordered something on eBay Saturday morning (literally while dripping wet, I bid on it through my phone), paid for it, and got a friendly e-mail saying that the person who sold it to me was able to ship it on Saturday morning. I was pretty pleased at that. He sent me the delivery confirmation number for the Priority mail package and I checked it Saturday night – my package was in Austin, TX.
This morning I decided to take a peek online around 7:20 and was shocked to see the package had made it to Toledo – must be some sort of magic flight from TX to OH on the weekend. And now at 11:10, I see the following:
Arrival at Unit, March 30, 2009, 6:58 am, LAKESIDE MARBLEHEAD, OH 43440
Processed, March 29, 2009, 11:54 pm, TOLEDO, OH 43601
Processed, March 28, 2009, 9:11 pm, AUSTIN, TX 78710
Electronic Shipping Info Received, March 28, 2009
So it’s actually at my local post office. No idea if it will be at my house today or if it will be there tomorrow – but nonetheless, I’m pretty impressed!
