Somebody Please Get FedEX an Atlas
last week I ordered a new mac mini and a modem* from Apple. Apple, of course, sent each out separately. The modem the day before the computer.
I checked the FedEx tracking website tonight to see where the modem currently was. And I was shocked at the answer.
Now, the modem was shipped from Sacramento, California and was heading to Burlington, Washington. Straight up Interstate 5. I've driven that route many, many times. It's pretty straight forward.
Apparently my modem is in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania.
That's nowhere near Interstate 5.
So I'm thinking some one saw the Washington on the label and thought DC**.
And I just talked to FedEx Customer Service (is their call center in India?****) and the package should be here in a couple of days.
*Yeah, I'm still on dial-up.
**And I thought DHL (the yellow van people) were bad. Well, they were, and I currently rate them under FedEx.
***I bring that up since I mentioned the "up two states" to get here, but it's currently seven or so states away. And I didn't think the guy***** I was talking two knew US geography. But it's 12:30am-ish, so it may have just been me.
****Not to be too rude, but I did have a hard time understanding some of the things he said, and he did have an accent....
*****I should apologize to him for being an ass. But I demanded that the package get here by Thursday. Even got a supervisor involved.
