I think I know what the initials stand for in UPS

Unbelievably Pathetic Service (or Uber Pokey & Stupid). Miss P. #6 ordered an iPod from Apple on May 2. It was shipped from the factory on that day, and as you can see from the Tracking Information below, it travelled thousands and thousands of kilometers, through three countries and ELEVEN (count them, ELEVEN) shipping centres until it hit Saskatoon. This took a total of 6 days. It arrived in Saskatoon Wednesday morning of last week; it should have been in our possession Wednesday afternoon of last week. Saskatoon is two hours away from us. Two hours, 200 km. It has been stuck in Saskatoon for 6 days. Either that, or a UPS employee is enjoying a brand new iPod touch. Given human nature and post-modern morality, I wonder which is more likely.
