In a moment of weakness and what looked to be a pretty cool piece of equipment, I made a purchase from The Shopping Channel. I have done this before and have always enjoyed the on line shopping experience. Items are delivered in a prompt manner. Usually! The item seemed to be a bit of a hot seller. Would this make the delivery a longer process than usual? A purchase on Saturday, give it a day or so for processing, then well, the document said I would have it by Friday. Well, Friday came and went and no package!
The beauty of ordering on line is you can watch it travel. The product’s method of transportation was Canada Post. The package left Mississauga Tuesday headed toward Winnipeg. The next stop should be Regina, you would think! My original date of delivery was to be Friday, April 20th. It stopped in Winnipeg on Saturday, so it is already running late! Canada Post indicates there was a stop in Regina for a grand total of thirty minutes. My tracking number then indicates it rolled into CALGARY! WHY?
Tracking Numbers! Fun to watch or frustrating, as you see where your package is going or in this case not going.
I gave our work address, because many times I’m not at home, someone is usually at the radio station. The tracker does not indicate that there was any kind of attempt to deliver this package – just that it was in Regina. When its a Regina address, would you not just off load the package at its destination for delivery on a work day.
Now, I will wait and see if it comes back this way.
Things I do know, the weather conditions in Ontario were less than stellar when the package shipped out, so I might see the delay there, other than that – its a mystery.
On another note, a friend in Calgary, sent me a birthday gift. It has yet to arrive! And I haven’t heard if it has been returned to her. Maybe her gift will be one of those stories that it shows up in 3 years time. Hope it wasn’t an edible.
PS – the Saskatchewan Roughrider Season Tickets are coming via EXPRESS MAIL – hope I’m at home when that package arrives. Who knows where they might end up!
