    Ordered my ipod touch on tuesday, supposed to be delivered today march 7...
    so i check tracking, yesterday it was in Sacramento (most of my orders come through Sac), about an hour away from where I live, so i'm thinking sweet, it'll be here tomorrow.

    I check my tracking this morning....it's in Memphis TN.... new delivery date of March 12....

    it went from 1 hour from my place, to 1/2 the country away.... :ugh:

    I've seen this type of stuff before. I think it might mean it was supposed to be on a certain flight, but once it landed they find out it wasn't.

    How your iPod misses its flight I can't say. Perhaps it was chatting up a hottie in the airport bar...

    yeah, Sacramento is my local hub. I'm having another package delivered today by Fedex that was in Sac this morning and is "out for delivery"...

    My ipod on the other hand was in Sac, now it's in Memphis, to come back to Sac sometime next week for some odd reason :wtf:

    it's not so much that it missed a flight, it's more like it go on a flight that it wasn't supposed to be on.... :hs:

    Ouch that sucks. I had a friend send some beer from Minneapolis to LA. It ended up going to Penn. then to Florida where it sat for almost a week until they broke it and tried to charge him a cleaning charge.

    well I got it today...
    it originated from Elk Grove (which is about 45 minute from my place), went to Sac (FedEx hub for my area), somehow got accidently shipped to Memphis, when it got to Memphis, they retagged my shipping as over night when they realized the error (which explains why my tracking didn't work, and the giant "opps" sticker put over the original shipping label) and got delivered today...

    so yeah...

    took a week instead of a day because of the shipping mistake.
    it was literally up the road from me originally.
