Has Tracking Packages Changed Sedalians?
Or is it just me? It might be just me. So I decided to treat myself not too long ago to buying some stuff online that I can't get here in town. I mean, for the most part, if I want something, I just go and get it here in town. But there are some things, you know, you just can't get anywhere but online.
I don't really wanna go into what that is, I mean, it could be anything with me. Usually lately it's been snacks that aren't made in America. But on a side tangent, WHY, for the love of PETE, is this not a thing here?!
This is 'Murica. We love butter. We love honey. We love honey butter. We put it on our rolls at every opportunity in every restaurant. WHY isn't this a chip flavor here? Sure, we have Honey Barbecue. But I don't think I'm asking much here. Anyway.
So, I had a package that was supposed to come through Monday. Then, it got delayed. Then they weren't sure when it was coming. Then I got another update.
Then I thought, "Okay, okay, so it'll be here today..." And it hit me. I was never like this before. I was always an impatient person, sure. But watching when a package was coming, tracking its every movement, has changed me. It's made me more impatient, more entitled. Before, as long as I knew a package was coming within like, a week of when they said it was going to be there, that was good enough.
Now, I'm literally tracking pizza deliveries and getting upset when I don't get a package update other than "it's on the truck". I was never like this before! Have I been given too much? Am I being spoiled? Most importantly, am I the only one?
Do you find yourself checking tracking on your packages? Are you getting a little more impatient for them, or is it just me?
