Shipping packages

Written By: Gary on July 13, 2005 4 Comments

So I ordered some books from Amazon (for my Egypt trip). I think I ordered them on July 3rd and they finally shipped yesterday. The estimated delivery date is August 8th (that’s crazy, right?) so I checked the tracking and while the tracking is still listing August 8th I see they left a town 20 miles away at 9:15 AM so I’m assuming they’ll be here today. It’s just a pretty lousy estimation, they were off by 25 days!!! These days I expect something a little more accurate like: it’ll arrive at 2:17 PM today…

UPDATE: They showed up at 11:04 AM on Thursday the 14th! They look like good books!

    You bet. I hope I have a connection somehow/somewhere (preferably in the hotel or even the room, it will influence my choices) so I can post pictures and entried from there…

    Probably when it’s cold here (Jan or Feb or Mar) I just need to make sure that’s not when the Nile or something overflows….
