Excuse me sir, you are at the wrong gate.


How does a package; in a warehouse roughly 25km from me, end up in Massachusetts?   Via the Amazon of course.

I picked these specific USB keys, out of all the ones that I looked at, because it was pointed out that they were in the local warehouse.


Which, if the wind is blowing right, is spitting distance from the Canada Post warehouse.


I keep hope that one day, I actually get the 2 day prime delivery service, I pay for.


HOT TAKE: I am pretty sure I am not going to be getting these; I have already ordered a cheaper replacement with more storage space.

You Can Rest Assured

We will work diligently to ensure the pool and sauna are restored to full operation in a timely manner. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in regard to this matter and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Now Paging Passenger USB

It is also not lost on me; the irony of trying to keep the carbon foot print in check, by ordering a product that was housed locally and that product is now in Massachusetts.


Road to hell — good intentions and all.


You will be relieved to know that pool maintenance has been completed. Thank you so much for all your messages of support during that difficult time.


No notice, of course, that the maintenance was completed. I bravely went up to check, amidst the elevator maintenance.


Whilst maintenance continues maybe I could take my IKEA folding chair, my phone with an extra power pack, maybe a sammich, water bottle and make the journey into an adventure; see how long I end up waiting for an elevator.

Isn’t it ironic… that the attention to detail and clever programming, that was used to interpret the hashtags in my tweet about this post; triggered a response with Amazon Customer Service. Yet IF that cleverness and attention to detail had been employed in sending my package across town, I hazard a guess my USB sticks would not be in Massachusetts right now. The refund process was quick and efficient though. Yet, not the point of the story. Ironic? Ain’t it.
