huh???

Look at this from my tracking info:

September 7, 2008     08:00:00 AM     LOUISVILLE KY US     Arrival Scan
September 7, 2008    01:17:00 AM    OAKLAND CA US    Departure Scan
September 6, 2008    10:00:00 PM    OAKLAND CA US    Arrival Scan

Why the heck did it go from California to Kansas??? I LIVE in California you nuts (at UPS). its entirely possible that its placed on a route that takes it to San Diego....

Actually, KY is Kentucky, not Kansas (KS) but, yeah, that's crazy.  I wonder if it had to go to some central depot first?  Still seems silly to me too.  I live in Kansas City but on the Missouri side (the GOOD side  :P ) but I don't know where my copy is.  I'm afraid I won't get it until Wednesday if not LATER.

Well, anyways, I just checked the tracking and it arrived in Ontario, California not long ago (yes there is a town called Ontario in California. I looked on Google Earth and its east of LA), so depending on where it goes next (San Diego would be the logical answer), I should be getting it tomorrow :)

It's about 2 or 3 hours to get to LA, so they could send it by truck.....

HAHA, the exact same thing happened to me... I live at Berkeley, CA and it arrived in oakland then zoomed off to kentucky...makes no sense! What a waste of energy!

lol, I wonder if both of ours are on the same shipment? That is, the same plane or whatever. Makes no sense to me either.

It's stupid. There's a huge MEGA storage place for gamestop and when I order through them they do this all the time. Apparently a package HAS to go to a big distribution center first, even if it makes no logistical sense.

Not to mention a waste of gas considering the gas prices these days.
