    amazon's warehouse is 30 miles away, and the central logistics hubs of the two major delivery companies are less than 15 miles away, and I get most stuff from them the next day for no extra charge. But there's no sweetwater at ALL, so it's a trade-off

    I spent some time in East Germany during the 80s.

    I'm not going to complain about waiting a few days for something.

    Also, and I've said it before, when I ordered the X-Ray Specs/Decoder ring/Sea Monkeys back in the day, they took 6-8 WEEKS!

    I ordered a neck from Stew mac that arrived last week. I was tracking it on FedEx website (while nail-biting ) and I noticed it came from Ohio to a town NW of me and from there it went to a hub that is SW of me. So, it had to practically go through my town just to be brought back on the smaller truck...lol....like someone else said: "first world problems"

    I bought an antique car in Mississippi and they shipped it via Texas to get it up to Maine.

    While that may suggest that shipping professionals are dumb, we have a local UPS driver that can hit 20mph in reverse on a 1 1/2 lane street crowded with pedestrians in swimsuits, honking his horn all the way.

    I'm absolutely certain he cannot see behind the big brown box, so I have to assume he has some sort of superpower.

    It shows up here at my house, then the next day I place the order. I don't know why it takes so long for you?

    While traveling through Colorado and Kansas, I always wonder how a banana makes it there for about the same price as everywhere else.
