At the bottom of this post is a partial screengrab of the mess Jocelyn found when she tracked her package online. It had been shipped using UPS Mail Innovations, which combines the worst of both companies.
“It shipped from Shutterfly on June 3, and was first processed in Auburn, WA,” writes Jocelyn. “The next couple check-ins were all in the next couple days, June 4th and 5th, as it made its way from WA to Fontana, CA. Then, suddenly, the package went back in time, and somehow managed to visit nearly half the states in the US within a 24-hour time period.”
That list continues to get larger. In the short time between receiving Jocelyn’s e-mail and checking out the tracking info for ourselves, dozens of new entries were added.
It’s obviously a glitch, and Jocelyn is more amused at the silliness of this error than she is worried about her package bouncing around like it’s trapped in a TARDIS that’s gone haywire.
“I’m not actually concerned about the package getting to me,” she admits. “I bet it will be at my house in the next couple days. But I definitely seem to have run into some strange glitch.”
