dhl is so frustrating. this is what happened.

first of all my sub was supposed to be here on the 12th. thats what it said when i tracked it. but it didn't come yesterday and i doubt it will be here today.

here's the fun part.

its going from georgia to california. by the 11th it was in utah. so i figured on the 12th it will reach california dhl center and on the 13th they'll be delivered.

i guess not though. this morning the package arrived at the dhl center in michigan. it will take 2 days trip from michigan to california. lol. i'll be lucky if i get it by friday. ahhhhhhh so frustrating. lol. at least my alpha is taking a tour of the country.

i just hope it gets here in one piece. lol.

that sucks bad - how do you mix up CA and MI?

I ship a lot of stuff from MI to CA for work and both UPS and FedEx take like 4 or 5 days to get it there. Not sure on DHL - I never use them. good luck chad.

It's kinda like flying. You sometimes don't travel in a straight line.


On a smaller scale my water company is like 1/4 mile away from me. They don't accept hand delivered/in person water bill payments. My bill gets sent miles away to the zip code's regional mail office where it sits in a mailroom for ? days, then comes back to them. A 15 mile journey to travel 1/4 mile?



Stupid, and it costs me $.42 everytime.

I ship and receive over 100 boxes a day using DHL
I get that from time to time
Misrouted
It will take 4 business days

As much as DHL is less reliable than UPS and FedEx
But I love DHL
I save over $30,000 a year for my business

I'll teach yo a trick to even save more money
- Create an over night ship label online using your account
- Ship from your destination back to same destination (overnight)
- i.e. from yo to yo
- Yo'll pay less
- It's a privilege not a mistake that can save yo money and faster delivery

Let's say yo are buying something from NY
Yo create an online ship label from Los Angeles CA to Los Angeles CA
Yo e-mail shipping label to sender in NY as a returned item to yo

Yo'll pay CA to CA rate instead of NY to CA rate
Yo save over 50% of actual shipping rate
100% legal as a returned item even if it isn't

Lol Chad. Thanks for the lesson. If you look at your map ironically that's about the same distance in relation to how far they send my water bill before it gets to its' final destination.







Good art skills BTW lol.

looks like i won't be getting the sub until monday or tuesday. it still must be on its way from MI.

i am thinking its due to the weather in colorado. i heard its really bad and all the roads are closed.
