How is this even possible? My item was shipped on December 30 and is scheduled to arrive on January 26?
In the interest of, uh, research, I looked on the UPS website and tried entering some hypothetical package data to see how long a shipment could possibly take.
I first entered the ZIP code for Barrow, Alaska, since that's about as far from Boston as one can get in the U.S. It only gave me one-day and two-day options, but that's not really fair since they don't offer ground service from Alaska.
So I tried a ZIP in southern California, because that's about as far as one can drive in the U.S. (and also because I know the ZIP for Beverly Hills off the top of my head) and the slowest service offered would take four days.
Is my package just driving around the country for a month in a brown truck for fun? I know UPS prefers to have the trucks take creative routes and all, but really.
