    Arlington is just a few hours NORTH of me-

    THIS is my USPS tracking-

    Now, it was supposed to be IN my box on the 11th- But instead it was taking the scenic route- THROUGH SALT LAKE CITY!!

    Lol I had something similar a few weeks back. Package was shipped from NY .. to California, then down to Florida, then to Minneapolis (I am 2 hours north of Minneapolis so thought it was close) then shipped off to Denver, CO .. then back to St Paul (across the Mississippi river from Minneapolis) then finally to my town. This was an ebay purchase and I almost gave negative feedback until I checked the mailing date. He sent it the same day I ordered, it just took 4 weeks to arrive. Thanks, USPS.

    I suppose, in all fairness, when you think of the sheer volume of mail they handle everyday, some mistakes are going to happen, especially given that most small packages must be handled by an imperfect human, mis-reading zip codes and such. But at least it amuses us. Remember to PRINT CLEARLY next time you mail something! lol

    I'm sure this is why my mailbox was completely empty today .. *sob*

    LOL- NO KIDDING MK and Classwife! That would be my luck! LOL

    ACK cleo- That was ALWAYS my fear when I sold on Ebay- NOTHING left my hands without DC- I refused to send it without it.

    Wait, Salt Lake City....Utah????? Are you sure there isn't a Salt Lake City in Texas, it is a big state after all. (just kidding)

    Hubby told me he had a package go to California that was suppose to go to NY, and we live in Chicago. You'd think they would know east from west.

    Someone else told me they have been watching a package they have been expecting for a while, it keeps getting close to her house and then goes on a trip away from her again. Just keeps circling and not quite landing at her house.

    I KNOW! It is a big state- so the mistake of sending it to El Paso- (which is further away from my house than Chicago Il, BTW) or sending it to San Antone- those would have made sense- LOL Heck, the start of the zipcodes are not even the same! LOL

    too classic! lol just like the govt to send it out of state to send it back to the state lol it's the same thing here in FL. If you send something from Deltona to Orlando which is south of Deltona by 20 miles, it goes north to Jacksonville which is about 120 miles north! It's crazy! With that kind of routing, it would just be simpler to run the dang mail yourself instead of sending it lol here in central fl, all roads lead to jacksonville lol

    LOL- LOVe the song!

    and I did expect it to bounce around a little, cause yep- it is the goverment after all- BUT, I thought to leave the actual state was a bit much! LOL


    and yes it FINALLY made it!! I was starting to worry-

    funny, it went from Arlington to SLC, and never stopped- THEN back smooth to Tyler Texas without stopping- but it stopped twice here in Jasper- LOL
