I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Downton Abbey Season 3 DVDs which I ordered last fall. I was notified that they shipped on Saturday, so I checked this morning on the status. And I had to shake my head at what I found. The DVDs were shipped out of Seattle. But instead of coming directly to Boise (505 miles from Seattle), they went first to Louisville, KY (2,439 miles from Seattle) and then will travel back to Boise (1,875 miles from Louisville) for delivery tomorrow.
Instead of 505 total miles to get here, the DVDs will have traveled 4,314 to get here. On what planet does that make sense?
