We had an envelope Fedexed to us Friday, to arrive Monday. It went out from Lynn, MA, leaving the Peabody office in the evening. That is about 60 miles from here. It went next to Memphis, TN, about 1300 miles from here, and then came back the 1300 miles, to Londonderry, about 20 miles from here. So it has come about two-thirds of the way here so far, with a 2600-mile detour.
Presumably, it is all about the airport. Peabody is 15 miles from Logan in Boston, and everything that is not supposed to get delivered from their office presumably just goes on a plane to Memphis, where it gets sorted and put on other planes. It's hard to accept that this is the most efficient way of doing things.
