Did I Flunk Geography?

I ordered some items the other day and today, for grins, I checked the tracking. USPS is notorious in this household for not posting tracking information until after you've received your package. UPS is generally better at keeping you informed. Here is what I saw this morning:

Louisville, KY, United States 07/10/2014 12:13 P.M. Arrival Scan
Ontario, CA, United States 07/10/2014 5:32 A.M. Departure Scan
Ontario, CA, United States 07/08/2014 11:46 P.M. Arrival Scan
Cerritos, CA, United States 07/08/2014 10:53 P.M. Departure Scan
07/08/2014 2:47 P.M. Arrival Scan
Phoenix, AZ, United States 07/08/2014 5:15 A.M. Departure Scan
07/08/2014 12:24 A.M. Origin Scan
United States 07/07/2014 9:23 A.M. Order Processed: Ready for UPS

Isn't California closer to Alaska than Kentucky? Why would they send my package there? Is it the same thing as those stupid hubs the airlines have? It seems like you have to "touch" the hub for your flight to count or something.

I'm not in a hurry for this stuff but just find it curious.

Wish me luck. I'm seeing an acupuncturist for the first time today. I am expecting miracles.

  1. I'll hope for miracles with you! ;)

    USPS routing is a strange and mysterious thing, obviously designed by witch doctors.
