    The downside of tracking packages...

    The ability to track packages is a wonderful thing. You know when to expect your shipment. You can anticipate any potential customs delays. You know the geographic location. All very cool and useful. But their is a downside... due to tracking I know that my brand new Antea Roman is sitting on a truck somewhere in Hollywood and will probably be delivered within the hour. Every time I hear air brakes or see a truck go by I get all excited and then let down when I see it is not FedEx. It is almost torture... ha ha ha.

    Ya know what the real downside of tracking is? When you're waiting the whole day for your package, because tracking says it'll arrive that day... and the package suddenly shows up 'delivered' - though you haven't gotten anything (Lost a package that way) - or it says 'delivery delayed', and they'll get to you after the weekend.

    I've gotten a sincere hate on for tracking here in the Netherlands lately... postal service has been sux0r.

    Re: The downside of tracking packages...

    Speaking of waiting for packages, does anyone know how accurate the information in the "Delivery Times" sticky is in practice?

    For example, if a watch is ordered that is described as being available in "middle of December, 2008," do the watches tend to come right on time? Early? A little late?

    If you can't tell, I'm really excited to get a watch that I ordered that was supposed to be available in the middle of December

    I've answered my own question!

    At least in my experience, my watch will now arrive two full weeks before the "Delivery Times" sticky said it would be available. Can't wait to get the watch!
