I present the two most dreaded words in the expedited mail business: shipping exception.
Update: It has come to my attention that the interaction of those two words with two more words—holiday weekend—creates an even heavier dread.
Update II: FedEx delivered! They managed to truck my little package along much more quickly than they or I had expected, and I’ve been putting the new machine through its paces since Friday. Perhaps I’ll do something bloggy, like a review, before too long. The short story is: This little thing is pretty cool.
