I'm A Dork: Tracking Packages

I placed an order on Amazon that pretty much finished up my Christmas shopping list. I love shopping online for Christmas. The best part? The tracking feature. I love seeing the progress of my packages. First, I order my stuff. Then Amazon bills me and I fork it over. Then Amazon sends UPS a heads-up that my stuff is coming. Then they send my stuff to UPS. Then UPS scans my stuff and sends it up to me from Kentucky.

God, it's cool!


  1. I am also kind of dorky like that. I wish there was a feature that would allow me to send messages to the slow workers at each stop along the way asking "what's the holdup?"

  2. Wouldn't it be cool if each package had a little GPS sensor on it so you could look at some map and watch it move in real time?

  3. I'm with and hey, Chris has found a way to make it even more fun!
