It's strange ... it left Greensboro at 9:30pm Sunday night, arrived back in Raleigh at 2:30am Monday morning, was scanned onto the delivery truck at 4:30am and delivered to the local store by 10:00am.

I still don't understand why it had to sit in Greensboro over the weekend other than UPS promised Monday delivery, and by damn they were *NOT* going to deliver it *UNTIL* Monday even though it was being delivered to the store & the store does get UPS deliveries on Saturday.

Like I wrote, I've had bad experiences with UPS - they've broken things and lost shipments and this item is fairly rare, virtually irreplaceable.

It arrived undamaged & I've got it home now, so I'm breathing easier.

I've seen the same thing with other delivery companies, and the USPS.  I think they made a routing mistake.  I watched when a package sent for Tenn., went to Atlanta, New York, Hartford CT, back to Atlanta back to Tenn then directly to Hartford CT, then by ground to North Haven CT, taking several days more than necessary, for delivery.

I'm expecting a package to be delivered to a local store for me to pick up. I've had bad experiences with UPS home delivery before. In fact, I've had far more bad experiences with UPS than I've had good ones. So whenever I can, I elect delivery to the store.

The store gave me a UPS tracking number so I can see when my package is going to  arrive.

Funny thing about UPS routing; something I don't understand:

The destination is here in Raleigh, NC. There's a large UPS facility here.

*WHY*, if the item has arrived at the destination city *RALEIGH* would UPS ship it to Greensboro for it to just be shipped back to Raleigh?

UPS could have already had it out on the delivery truck today in Raleigh & I could have my item by this evening instead of having to wait until Monday or Tuesday.
