    It looks like it. I ordered something from Amazon two days ago, it left the warehouse yesterday, and the UPS Tracking site says it's estimated shipping date is the 20th, which is MLK Day. Not all people have that day off, I guess. Perhaps it's compensation for not having regular Saturday delivery. [​IMG]
    Okay, I've got a UPS question as well. This morning, when I checked the UPS website to track where my package was, it said "OUT FOR DELIVERY". It had already reached a city that's really close to where I am right now (probably 10, 20 miles at the most), so I got excited (it's the Far From Heaven soundtrack [​IMG]). Later this morning, I checked the site again, and the latest report was "DELIVERY", but it stayed in the same city. So what does "DELIVERY" really mean?

    "Out For Delivery" means its on a truck en route to your address and will be delivered that day. "Delivery" - I suppose means it was delivered and signed for? (Never saw that nomenclature from UPS before.).

    Are you sure? The city assigned to the "DELIVERY" status report was Hamilton, OH. I live in Oxford. I think it has to be "SHIPPED" until it gets to my place. Anyone know the difference between "DELIVERY" and "SHIPPED"?

    UPS definitely delivers on MLK Monday. I just looked at a UPS calendar in a warehouse today, while someone asked.

    I got my package yesterday! Turns out the city assigned to "DELIVERY" was supposed to be my town, Oxford, instead of Hamilton, which is 10 or 20 miles away. The reason I didn't know I got the package when I first saw that updated status (11:29am is the last time it updated, and the main status still said "IN TRANSIT") is because I live in a college dorm, and you can't go into the mailroom except for certain hours when an attendant is there. Mailroom hours were 3-4pm yesterday. I paid for 2nd Day Air, I got it in 1! [​IMG] Granted, it shipped from Lexington, KY, and that's only 120 miles from here...
