Lowest Score Wins - a first-of-its kind golf book for anyone who wants to lower their score - Page 20

post #343 of 624

The main distribution hub in our area of Wisconsin is Eau Claire.  If I send a letter to my neighbors house, it travels 3 hours to Eau Claire, gets sorted and comes back.

I think they're okay. It went from one hub to another hub.

Purely anecdotal on my part. Just thought it was funny at the time. I'm sure this kind of thing is not limited to the USPS.

 

Anyway, back on topic :-)

Yep, just double-checked it. Who knows… Yours definitely shows that it went to MA.

 

Wait, Springfield, MA is only 90 minutes from you. It's probably just a USPS hub (like Warrendale, PA).

 

 

Looks like you'll get it tomorrow. John's took a fairly normal route:

Last time I tracked an incoming package, it left some nearby facility (Philly, maybe?) in the morning, and was checked in later in the evening at the same facility. g1_wacko.gif

Oh, I know about hubs - I was just kidding around.  I would have been upset if it had gone from PA to Chicago or something - haha. 

 

Since it was in MA 5 hours ago I'm kind of hoping they make a 6PM delivery to Albany but, yeah, likely tomorrow.

Would there be a reason that the tracking numbers dont return results? I've tried several times to find my package through USPS and it cant locate it.

Or maybe today as it left MA 5 hours ago!

Yeah, because USPS sucks. I can't tell you how many buyers have demanded refunds from me because tracking shows a package leaving my house and being delivered to my house an hour later.

You just bought and we just shipped today. Tracking #s will show up at 6pm or so… later tonight. You're jumping the gun. The post office generally only updates once or twice a day. It's not UPS or FedEx (nor did we pay $10+ to ship your book).

Ha, I like the wishful thinking, but… no. Local post office tonight, delivery tomorrow I'd imagine.

Okay. Thanks.

Man, I hope there's more positivity in the book. ;)

Uhm, skip chapter 26 unless you can be very realistic about your own abilities. :)

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

 

 

Better?

Gotta love the USPS, not. No updates for a tracking number since the 17th is slightly disappointing. It's not surprising to me that the companies like FedEx and UPS are beginning to run them into the ground.

That said I'm extremely excited for Monday, the expected delivery date, so I can read it and head out to the course afterwords.

It was shipped Media Mail. It's not going to get a lot of tracking updates. :)

I can't wait for it to show up.

Well, I think I suck at golf but I'm positive if I put in the work, including what the book says, I'll get better!

(hopefully not better at sucking, though) :D

Oiii, $29 for the book, $18 for intl. shipping, $10 tax - about $60 overall. Plus three weeks wait. Uugh.

 

Do you plan to sell via Amazon UK, which cuts shipping and tax expenditures?

 

OK, I dare to ask (I read this on page 11): When do you plan to think about the ebook release?
