I ordered a Roku Sunday night. Don’t worry what it is. It has to come from California. That’s the important part. There is a tracking number, which of course is where the problems arise!
Are you like me? When you get the number do you check it immediately? The response is always the same whether it’s UPS, FedEx or the Postal Service: We haven’t seen it yet.
Then the kabuki dance begins. I check two or three times a day. Why? no clue. This is like pressing the elevator button more than once. It doesn’t help.
Tonight I checked and got the classic tracking response. A step was listed as happening after something that had to have happened before!

How could it be processed through the facility before it was accepted? I have no clue. It’s frustrating.
It will get here when it gets here and not a moment sooner… though shouldn’t my paying attention rush it along?
