still waiting

UPS is a mess for international shipping. Apparently, “overnight” actually means “a week” or close to it. The package wasn’t actually picked up from Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong until the 30th though, so maybe I’m being to rough on them. Anyhow, the order status server at Lenovo was down so I sent a message over to my rep to get the actual UPS tracking number and received this reply:

Yes the server is down, but the UPS tracking number is 1Z127V18D302321995.
I can tell you that based on the current status, you could have it by Friday. Monday looks probable otherwise, unless orders are held up in customs.

Customs. That’d be just my luck. Maybe I’ll have it by this time next week.
