It's that time of the year again where UPS gets overwhelmed and my package tracking starts to get a little comical.

Addison, IL, United States 11/23/2011 11:56 P.M. Arrival Scan
Rockford, IL, United States 11/23/2011 10:22 P.M. Departure Scan
Addison, IL, United States 11/23/2011 10:00 A.M. Arrival Scan
Chicago, IL, United States 11/23/2011 9:19 A.M. Departure Scan
11/23/2011 4:21 A.M. Arrival Scan
Rockford, IL, United States 11/23/2011 3:06 A.M. Departure Scan
11/23/2011 1:57 A.M. Arrival Scan

Rockford to Chicago to Addison, back to Rockford, and then back to Addison.
Good thing it is a relatively short trip back and forth down I90.

Sure would have been nice if they didn't waste a day in shipping it back and forth, because now I have to wait until Monday to get the package.

UPS loves me during the holidays. On more than one occasion, I've checked their website to see a package "delivered." I'd go outside to find nothing. A couple years ago, I had a package scheduled to be delivered on Christmas Eve, which was a present for someone. It was "delivered" at 10 AM, but the UPS driver showed up at 9:30 PM. She must have been so behind that she didn't want to get in trouble. Here's my little gem for today:

http://www.ups-mi.net/packageID/packageid.aspx?pid=9102959334533102725397

This isn't a big deal, but I find it funny. At the top of the page it says, "Tracking Dates Do Not Include Weekends And Holidays Recognized By The U.S. Postal Service."

The package is projected to be delivered on the 27th, which is tomorrow. It's also a Sunday. I think they need a fresh set of monkeys to update the code behind their tracking system.
