I never thought I would shoot UWA (but I never thought I'd be a Driller either... I say 'Driller...' to my wife and she cracks up...). She an oil patch professional too... this worries me...:D

Unfortunately, this is UPS...

I tracked items that arrive in Houston in just over 24 hours, and then stayed in the warehouse until the date I paid for arrived. I could have chosen free ground transport and then it would be 8-10 business days... given the Thanksgiving holiday and two weekends, I'd get it just before Xmas...

Sometimes I wonder about USPS...:rolleyes:

Yeah, packages take FOREVER to get here too. I had one package that travelled 1,750 miles from Massachusetts to Dallas, TX in one day, but it took a full 9 days to go the remaining 415 miles from Dallas to Del Rio. *SMH* Prior to that incident, I was convinced that the Pony Express covers all of Texas south west of San Antonio; However, I know for a fact that the Pony Express still would have delivered my package at least 4 days sooner than I received it so I can only conclude that even the USPS doesn't want to go to Del Rio, NOT that I blame them. :)

We're near the UPS and FedEx local distribution hubs so we're among the last stops for both drivers. I've had deliveries after 9:00PM from UPS, but only when the package that shows up is something I'm anxious to get. ;)

USPS used to deliver before noon but they changed our route so it's now after 4:30PM.

+1

That's why I like to keep a PO Box, near work. I have all of my packages sent there.
