This is the slowest moving package I have ever seen.

Yeah... so far I'm average an exact 50% success rate with receiving FedEx, used them 8 times, 4 times where was a problem. You would not believe it - but they actually had a status of my package "delivery not scheduled yet, at sorting facility". I was thinking "YOU MORONS! I don't mind if it arrives earlier than scheduled!"

UPS has been mostly good.

USPS, which I use the most often I've actually very rarely had problems with, just make sure to include tracking.

I've had great luck with USPS and UPS, but FedEx once sent a pkg from Kentucky (a day's drive away) to Washington state, then back to Kentucky via Iowa, then to Georgia. Two weeks for a two day shipment. Yeah, it was beat up when it got here, but intact.

Hopefully it's not from a train derailment

^ Wow, after a quick Google search that does seem to be a legitimate status update.

So it's traveled ~25 miles in 11.5 days. That's an average speed of just under 0.1 mph. Or approximately as fast as the average tortoise. I think woot really got the gist of this one down:

dunno if you young 'uns remember a few years ago there were rumours the courier companies would have to merge in the wake of the stock market crashes.

FedEx merger with UPS would have been FedUps

That's the good 'ol USPS for you. Normally their delivery confirmation is pretty quick to update but sometimes not. I had delivery confirmation and signature confirmation once on a phone I sold on Ebay and it took over 2 months to finally show up on their site.

lol yup, I washed it last night and am planning to show it off back home.

Maybe it can't be updated because part of the shipping label was shaved off, where the tracking number was.
