So, I have a package coming to me. See if you can figure out any logic here:
Starts in Los Angeles, 20 miles SW of my home. Gets sent to Chino, which is ~30 miles east of its origin and 30 miles southeast of my home (40 miles via freeway). Then it gets sent to Sylmar which is 10 miles northwest of my home. There are two ways to Sylmar from Chino for trucks. One (southern route) passes through Downtown LA (where the package started). Other one (northern route) passes through my city (where the package needs to end up). It then was finally sent to my city. It is now at the dispatch center in my city, but will take an additional 2 days to arrive at my door. The package is a padded envelope with a CD enclosed.
Now, if you'd like, guess the delivery company. I'll give you a hint: It's not UPS. UPS would've gotten it here in a day (for me, shipping a package via UPS Ground usually gets packages there next day up to ~500 miles away).
Edit: Here's a map of the most ridiculous part:
Everything marked out:
Northern Route vs. Southern Route:
