I'm really, really pissed off about this right now, but I will try to remain calm and get to the bottom of this mystery. I'm currently involved in an international trade with someone from Vestal, New York. So naturally I assumed that USPS would ship this item from Newark, New Jersey since it's closest to his location and the direction it will be traveling in towards Europe. Also, the last packages I received and sent from/to the USA from Germany were all processed through Newark as well. However, according to the tracker, the package is currently in Chicago, so will most likely be processed through O'Hare instead. So my question here is basically what the fuck is wrong with USPS? Just how fucking stupid are those people? It's like 175 miles to Newark from Vestal and 711 miles to O'Hare. What really bothers me about this is not the extra time that the package is traveling but the fact that it's currently almost 50°F(!) colder in Chicago than New Jersey. It's currently 12°F in Chicago, so what does that mean for my beer? Fortunately it's all high-ABV beer in cans, so I'm holding on to a shred of hope that it's going to be all right, but at these temperatures it really only is a shred of hope. It will get even colder overnight, so I guess that if the package doesn't make it on a plane today, I am truly fucked. This trade took a long time to set up and I've been really, really looking forward to this box. This is the good stuff from Alchemist, Treehouse, Other Half, etc. It's not easy to get this stuff in Germany and I'm currently incredibly frustrated that it could all be ruined because USPS is too fucking dumb to ship from a location that 175 miles instead of one that 711 miles away. I just don't understand the thought process here.
