....UPS is wasting all of it! I ordered something off buy.com for my car (RCA in adapter) last night and because I absolutley need it no later than Thursday since I'm going home from college Friday morning to do a bit of audio work to my car, I opted for next day shipping. It ships today, and I get the tracking number. I find out, it shipped from Oklahoma City. Well, damn, I probably could have gotten away with ground shipping since the city where I am (Rolla, MO) is about a 5 hour drive away from OKC, and interstate 44 runs through both. Would be a quick delivery over ground. Oh well, I paid for 1 day, I'll get it sooner. I just checked the tracking number, they flew it out to Louisville, Kentucky. Huh, wtf? In the time it took the flight to get from OKC to KY, they could have driven the package from OKC to Rolla. So now, my guess is the package is going to leave Kentucky on a plane, fly out to St. Louis, then get on a truck down here to Rolla (hour and a half drive) and be delivered sometime tomorrow. Talk about going out of the way I mean, I guess it's safe to assume they know what they're doing, but why in the heck are shipping companies always so inefficent? FedEx is just as guilty...every time I order something from NewEgg, it goes from California to Indianapolis and back west to STL. And if my package isn't here tomorrow because of UPS's decision to toss my package around the midwest, I'm gonna be pissed.
