Futher Adventures of the Laptop in Auburn....

Mar 10, 2010 5:33 AM In transit to KENT, WA

Mar 10, 2010 5:33 AM Arrived at FedEx location KENT, WA

Mar 10, 2010 4:02 AM At local FedEx facility KENT, WA

Mar 10, 2010 12:55 AM Departed FedEx location AUBURN, WA

Mar 9, 2010 5:17 PM Arrived at FedEx location AUBURN, WA

So last night I checked and the item in question was "in transit to Auburn" I was hopeful that it would leave Auburn and be sent out to Seattle.

This morning I visited the "tracking web site" again and realized the computer was never going to be delivered with out something to move it out of the loop.

Little did I realize that once it arrived in Auburn, they would re-load it and send it BACK TO KENT.

My discovery resulted in a very long, very calm, seething phone call to Steve-- he had the audacity to tell me that I should have called earlier. Only if you call do they double check on issues. Tracking is automatic and really just to keep those like me entertained. After he "yes Mamm-ed me a couple of times I suggest in no uncertain terms that he better find that package and make sure it arrived in the office before noon. He said he would get it on a truck out for delivery and I suggested he do better than that.

FedX and the traveling Dell

So, first they build them, then they send them. FEDX is the preferred method. To keep you from bothering them endlessly they send you a tracking number.

On February 28Th FEDX was notified with shipping information.
March 2nd it arrived at the FedX facility
March 3rd it left California
March 4th if arrived in Portland. Spent 12 hours
March 5th at 1:04 am it left Portland
March 5th it arrived in Kent at 5:34 a.m. It was supposed to be delivered that day.
March 6th in transit. Okay, that might be hopeful.
March 6th it was having spa day in Kent
March 7th it was shopping at the Mall in Kent
March 8th it went to see all the academy award movies in 3D
March 9th at the crack of dawn, it was still hanging out in Kent

I TRACKED down a phone number (no easy task) called, questioned the fact it had been in Kent longer than at the factory and was told there had been:
A HUB MISDIRECTION....... Oh, I hope it's okay. It just sounds so so bad. Hate when our hubs are misdirected.

I just checked the progress:

March 9th arrived 5:45 p.m. AUBURN (South of Kent) maybe 15 miles...... it must have been going by giant land turtle

Check in for an update tomorrow.

I LOVE TRACKING NUMBERS. There will be screaming in the A.M. if it is not OUT FOR DELIVERY
