UPS Should Have This Feature
So the original knee pads that I bought for derby have crapped out on me.
I am sure that the Pro-Tech brand pads would be a perfectly good knee pad for a sport that does not involve a lot of deliberately flinging oneself at the ground. A sport that, perhaps, just uses pads for the occasional accidental fall.
But for the Derby? Not so much. I need PROTECTION, people.
So I ordered a pair of soft and cushy “187s” and have been waiting patiently (ok, not patiently, but as though I have no other choice but to wait) for a week for them to arrive.
The UPS site has them slated to arrive tomorrow – yay!
They started out in Wyoming, and have come a long way in the past week. I was curious exactly how long a way, so I took the transit points listed on the tracking site and plugged them into a Yahoo Map…
The big yellow circle is the target destination.
I would LOVE to be able to click a button on the UPS tracking page and pull up a map like this.
Because this is WAY cooler than just a list of places my package has been, and actually is kind of impressive if you realize how far one pair of knee pads can travel in 5 days.
Are you listening, UPS?
