Tracking Packages

Wasn't life much less stressful when we couldn't track the progress of our packages? My new keyboard appears to have boomerang and tardis tendancies, arriving in Ann Arbor before it left Belleville and out for delivery twice yesterday but still not delivered!

With all this bouncing about I'm worried it will be in pieces if it ever gets here

That recent notable solar flare must have disrupted the space-time continuum.

I think so. I now have a box to open. Right now the keyboard is both in pieces and complete.....

Open the box using the uncollapsed wave function included. This may (and may not) be accessed by means of quantum tunneling.

Wait, is there a cat in the box? What are his vitals?

I worked shipping boxes on the 4 a.m. shift in college. We could keep track of a box or two that we would sort, it would hit the proper belt for it's code, and then it would come back around like it shouldn't. It made the supervisor hopping mad at everyone in general if it did this 3 or 4 times, but there were always a couple of boxes with goofy coding that were difficult to notice. At 4 a.m. - shocking, I know.
It looks like your box has a person in it swapping barcodes to get to every state in the lower 48. Hmmm. Not the way I would do it, but to each his own.
Who you got in that box? A cat, a dog, or lots of stocks? I would say that your box rocks.

Amazon is using this random company called Ensenda to deliver an order I placed with them. There are a lot of complaints about them online. On the other hand, for all I know Ensenda could have been delivering all my latest packages, I never check the tracking info unless something is amiss, and only did it this time because I ordered last night and they claim it's getting delivered tomorrow (via regular ground shipping.)
