Menal Note: Shipping stuff.

If you ever decide to take the plunge and order something from Walmart.com and have it shipped to the store; you are in for quite the surprise. It takes 'officially' 7-10 days to reach the store, but for me its already been almost two weeks now and still no sign of my 500 dollar computer in their system. The worst part is that they cannot even track what goes on their trucks.

I think there is a solution to that. Using GPS and a tracking system for each piece of stuff, they could track where the trucks are, and where the stuff actually is, rather than simply saying on their site that its 'shipped'. I know this was more of a ramble than anything, but this is the Mental Note for the day: If you order something online, pay the extra fee to have it directly shipped to your residence so you are able to keep track of it.
