On the 18th I placed an order. There's nothing particularly special about that. And I got an estimated delivery date of the 23rd, which is today. The item did not ship on the 18th. Or the 19th or 20th, which was no surprise being Saturday and Sunday. Nor the 21st. Nor the 22nd. Yet the delivery date kept appearing as the 23rd. And now I see this:
Date/Time Activity Location 05/23/2012 22:25:00 IN TRANSIT TO[I] MINNEAPOLIS, MN, US 05/23/2012 22:24:00 DEPARTURE SCAN[I] EDISON, NJ, US 05/23/2012 20:54:00 LOCATION SCAN[I] EDISON, NJ, US 05/23/2012 16:34:00 ORIGIN SCAN[I] EDISON, NJ, US 05/18/2012 00:08:24 BILLING INFORMATION RECEIVED[M]
And guess what? Also this: Estimated delivery 05/23/2012
Which is silly. The shipping company, however, has updated its arrival estimate to something much more believable.
It's not an urgent thing and the wait itself doesn't really bother me. It's the lack of proper updating about it that bugs me.
