I ordered a small parcel from Manchester, New Hampshire for delivery to Laurel, Maryland using USPS for delivery The green pin in the top right is the starting point, the red pin is where it was delivered. It went from Manchester NH to Nashua NH and then on to Hyattsville, Maryland. That's closer than twenty miles from the final destination and about half an hours drive. Awesome. Except... From Hyattsville, it went to Washington DC and then it was sent to Sacramento in California. From Sacramento, it was shipped back to the exact same location in Washington DC before going to Laurel. What a waste of time and effort.
