According to the tracking, my package departed from a city about 130 miles south of me - close to Seattle. It's next check in was in Minnesota. I can't imagine that the most efficient way to travel 130 miles north was to start out by going almost 1700 miles east. I realize there are a few rivers to cross using the direct route, but as far as I know they all have bridges.
As a PSA. As a result of the 'Going Postal' phase in American history, the constitutionally protected United States Post Office, in an all hands on deck until we figure out how to stop our employees from killing all the other employees in the office, came up with WPPTS. Its been a phenomenal success. When was the last time you heard about a postal working 'going postal'?
The Worthless Parcel Post Tracking System is employed as a spot gap and emergency measure for any USPS employee. They simply dial into the system and manipulate packages at random until they laugh and no longer want to kill their office mates.
Suck it up, buttercup.
