Shipping Silliness

I ordered a book a week ago from about 200 miles away. Supposed to be delivered yesterday. It didn't come. I check status, it was shipped USPS, then given to UPS on 9/9, then given back to USPS on 9/11. Since 9/11, no update and it just says DELAYED. :)

Also, I got several random pieces of Chinese bullshit (like stupid shit that Walmart wouldn't even sell) from Amazon in the last few days that I never ordered. I thought some friends were fucking with me. They denied it. A quick Google search looks like it was a "brushing scam." A package is really bought and sent to a real person and then the scammer has a way of writing a fake review about the purchase to get ratings/reviews up for the item. I called Amazon and gave the tracking info and they took care of it. Amazon told me to keep, donate, or trash the shit. No Jeep parts sadly.

Instead of random shit, they were sending packs of plant seeds a lot of which were invasive species. It became so common around here the local news had to tell people to stop planting them. So in 10 years when our lakes and rivers are full of Asian carp, our oceans are full of lionfish and our forests are full of some invasive Asian weed you know how it happened.

I remember hearing about that last year.
