I ordered some new pajamas on September 22, and, because there is really very little else to do here and because I have no life outside of work, I took great amusement following their progress from Maine to North Dakota via FedEx.
It took more than two weeks for them to arrive. They left the warehouse in Maine on 09/25 and arrived in Massachusetts that same day. Five days later they were in Connecticut. As I recall, it isn’t very far from Massachusetts to Connecticut. I hope they had fun in the interim.
By 10/1 they were in Clyde, Ohio and then Chicago. By 10/2 they were in Fargo. I live 300 miles from Fargo, and for some reason they left immediately for Billings, Montana, which is 600 miles to the west of Fargo. They left Billings on 10/3 and travelled 300 miles back east, arriving in my town at 9:00 pm according to the package tracker. They appear to have meandered around town for twelve hours. I imagine them at the Spur Bar, having a couple of beers before climbing wearily back into their box. They were checked in at the FedEx warehouse in Dickinson at 9:00am on 10/4, and were delivered on the morning of 10/5.
I wish I could get the story behind all the delays and the visit to Billings and what they did in town for twelve hours between Saturday night and Sunday morning. They are really nice pajamas, but I wish it didn’t take so long to get things out here.
