Why I really don't love UPS...

UPS and I have never really been on good terms. Maybe it started when UPS managed to route a package we were awaiting to Corpus Christi, apparently under the misconception that perhaps we didn't enter our own city correctly when we ordered it. The merchant was so embarrassed by the incident that they refunded everything. I hope they hit UPS up for the chargeback. (We did get the package eventually...a month later.)

So, this week I received a nice little e-mail from UPS explaining ever so helpfully that an item I had ordered had shipped and that I could track it online. And, I suppose I could...if the package hadn't already arrived seven days earlier.

Yes, that would be UPS, where the U stands for "unhelpful".
