Inefficient

So here’s one for you, to break the literary slog I seemed to pop in to… Why is a package coming from China sent to Kentucky before sending it to me in California? And let me emphasize that there are three major airports and two major ports within an hour of where I live.
Maybe it’s just me. Maybe it’s just the way things are, but this isn’t good. I wouldn’t care if it ended up in Las Vegas or Portland or just anywhere near the West Coast. It seems like an inordinate amount of wasted fuel and time to send something completely across a country before sending it back.
By the way, this is just a laptop. I had no idea it was coming from Hong Kong until I got the notice that it had been shipped. ‘HK’? What the hell is ‘HK’? Oh yeah…
Anyways, just a random musing for the day. I’m sure it will get here soon. This cross-continental trip hasn’t really slowed it down that much. US Customs on the other hand has different ideas as to when something should be allowed in to the country.
