I'm really enjoying this swift 10 day shipping within the United States they chose to use. I've watched my headphones move one state at a time for the past 5 days.
Meanwhile mine have been sitting in Frankfurt for the past week without moving at all.
Mine just left Anchorage, delivery scheduled for Monday morning.:)
When mine got delivered, I was expecting it do the slow crawl across all of the FedEx distribution centers in California. Usually it's like downhill slalom racing. My package has to touch every gate. I saw the package get near California and figured it'd take at least another 5 days to get to me as it so often does so I made plans to go out. Then I get a delivery update from FedEx.... package is being delivered TOMORROW?
Crap... I gotta cancel some plans so these don't end up sitting on my doorstep!
Apparently mine are in North Dakota now for some reason, I'm in Washington... They literally are on a truck going state to state, I'm kinda worried about the condition they will be in by the time they get to me. They are in a town right now with a population of 100 people. Why are my headphones there? Super weird shipping. Put that crap on a plane Fed Ex! Dude really?!
If your cans could speak, oh the stories they would tell. Maybe the highlight of Friday night in that 100 head burg was everyone getting a turn with your 6xx's. They're helping you with the burn in time.
I suppose they could air mail it, but it’d jack up the cost a bit. While the box isn't particularly heavy, it is kinda big.
All kidding aside, that 100 person town might be a really unusual place to visit and might not be as rural as it sounds (but then again it IS North Dakota). I've looked up places where my packages end up in Southern California and it's like learning about a secret society. There are clusters of "towns" down there where FedEx has facilities. Your package pinballs around back and forth going several miles in between hops and if you look up the names of the cities, the population count looks like a misprint.
Theses places are in the middle of very dense areas of Los Angeles County, but very few people live there. They're small "towns" that are mostly industrial and some are shaped like a map of airport terminals of a major international hub. Everytime my package enters this odd fortified package zone, it usually takes around three days to break free from the gravity of the three Fed Ex facilities that are located within a few miles of each other.
I think they were very tired upon arriving in seattle, they jumped around 3 cities here to land 3 blocks away from my house at the post office yesterday morning, spent the night at the post office bed and breakfast and have been traveling around my tiny town for 7 hours in a thorough tour. I have yet to see them lol
OMG, did you have any idea you adopted a pair of cans with such fancy tastes? I hope they can be housebroken.
Hey, punch in Industrial City, CA into Google Maps. That's one of the weird kind of places I notice my packages traveling through on their way to me.
