I live out in the burbs and the driver has been within a mile of my house for the past 90 minutes. I have 3 deliveries on that truck. Two iPhone Xs and something from Amazon. The Amazon order let me schedule the delivery time and the earliest I could pick was 2-4p. Here it is 3:40 and the rate this truck is moving I'll be lucky to see my phones before 5. I wish they didn't have this Follow My Delivery service, lol.

I had contemplated having it held at UPS to pick up but it's on the other side of town and I was feeling lazy today. I didn't know about this Follow My Delivery until I got the email around 9a. UPS is a bunch of sadists if you asked me.

I also received the email about this morning and started following it. It showed it getting closer to my neighborhood, then I say it on the first turn into my neighborhood...so I went outside...and it was stopping at my driveway. Awesome. The driver and I had some laughs over it.

So, got my X...Woo-Hoo.

Finally came around 4:30. Love it so far. Updated to iOS 11.1 and restoring from iTunes backup right now.

Ughh, don't tell me that. It's currently 245, and I have a 330 flight I'm trying to catch :/ This live map is actually the worst though. They have been in my neighbourhood about 5 times since 10AM, and here I am, still without my X. If I didn't have to be on the east coast all weekend, I wouldn't care so much.

Yes, it is just a phone, and I will survive, but these are the things that I enjoy, and no one, well except UPS, can take that away from me.
