I ordered an item (small package and under 1lb) on christmas; it shipped from Massachusetts (and I'm on the east coast too). I'm still waiting for it to arrive! Tracking says it's in Capitol Heights Maryland(which is still really far from me), but that was on Dec 30 2009. It's been 17 days since it first started shipping. It's a really small package. I already got the stuff I ordered from CA from the US postal service already, and I ordered it 5 days ago. Why does fedex do this to people?

I'll probably just wait it out. But I'm so ticked! they did this to me a few years ago too, I don't remember how we got it worked out. They just really suck as a service provider. The company I bought my item from didn't have carrier options or I would've picked US post!
