It is the last day of January. We received an e-mail announcing my present was shipped yesterday!
Not. It is in “pre-shipping”.
A shipping label has been printed. It was printed yesterday. The shipping interface says it was printed in ten hours. That does not make sense even if one or the other side is using UTC. But the label has not yet been united with the box containing the gift; it is waiting in some warehouse in California for the box to arrive.
Amateur hour aside, I am hopeful the box containing my present will actually be picked up by USPS sometime before the weekend. And within a week or two will arrive in Vancouver so I can start whingeing about the contents.
So, call this a pre-whingeing whinge.
