Okay, I'll be real. When I repeated the title of this article to myself I couldn't help but chuckle just a little bit. Also, I'm a child.

For real though. I give billions (Okay, more like thousands) of dollars of business a year to Amazon, so naturally I have Prime. Isn't the point of Prime to help packages arrive quicker and without shipping costs? Yeah, that's what I thought. Well, why is it only when I order something that's time sensitive does it always appear to be going out to left field?

If you've been following the debacle that is my life, you know that about a week and a half ago I accidentally mule-kicked my iPhone X into Lake Pemaquid. Oopsie daisies. No biggie, though, I've already ordered and received my replacement device. Now, I just need a case for the thing, you know, because I'm rough on my electronics. Well, naturally I turned to Amazon because you can get super-dope products on the cheap. I ordered my phone case (it was a prime item) and have been eagerly awaiting it's arrival at my house. Well, it's been days now, why the hack hasn't it arrived?

I finally checked my app and tapped on the tracking info. What I saw just about baffled me. It would appear that my phone case, after days of being ordered, just finally shipped yesterday. And, in addition to that, it appears to be in a Nascar race as it does laps around the freakin' state of Colorado. No, seriously, check this out right now.

Now look, I get it, this is totally a first-world problem, but I'm afraid I'm going to break my new phone. I suppose I will have to do what I'm constantly telling my kids to do and be patient. Hopefully when whatever game UPS is playing in Colorado is over, I'll finally receive my new case.
