never saw this before...
The UPS tracking info for a package I'm expecting shows "PKG DELAY-ADD'L SECURITY CHECK BY GOV'T OR OTHER AGENCY- BEYOND UPS CONTROL". It's a box of three books: Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom
, and The Confusion
. It's not like I ordered the freaking Anarchist's Cookbook
: Turns out the "ADD'L SECURITY CHECK..." was the fill-in driver not being able to open the gate to my little condo community. I asked my regular UPS guy today, "so, what did the government want with my books?" and he looked at me like I was nuts, and I explained to him what the status said, and he said "stupid driver" and laughed, said he'd have to tell his boss about that. "Can't open gate because I'm an idiot and don't know how to work the phone" does NOT qualify as a "check by gov't or other agency", in my book!
