Mine overshot NE Ohio and is in PA, so hopefully it'll be back in my state tomorrow.
Gotta love the USPS, why deliver directly to NE Ohio when you can just send it on a field trip to Pennsyltucky? (Ohio Joke, you gotta live here to understand it)
It's not like there isn't this large metropolis called "Cleveland" in NE Ohio, even though I'm in Youngstown. That would seem to be the more logical dropping off point.
Or Akron!! Only 45 minutes away!!
Interestingly here in Plymouth, MN there are 2 post offices; one in the middle of town and one on the extreme east which on most offcial maps is considered Minneapolis. Because of the zip codes and boundaries when I lived a block and a half from the one in the middle, all of my stuff went to the one nearly 3 miles from my house and it routed through Minneapolis, delaying all mail by an extra day usually.
Now a few weeks ago I moved to the east side of town. You guessed it; now my mail goes direct to plymouth for final sort and delivery, but it comes out of the post office in the middle of the town.
I will never understand. I will only smile as I tear open more FGG boxes. Kaiser, I had the same reaction when I opened up my Barakus/Rappan Athuk combo. Per my wife when she got home a half hour later I still had a goofy grin on my face.
