Package Tracking

I guess it's not really amazon's fault, but the last two times I've ordered something from them the tracking information has been atrociously worthless.

Last time it said "March 6th, Location: Lexington KY, Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit. March 8th, Location: ---, Arrival Scan. March 9th, Location: ---, Arrival Scan" If you're not going to tell me the package location, what's the point?

This time it's even worse. The delivery company is something called 'Lasership' (never heard of them). This is my tracking information - "March 27th: Location: US, Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit. Delivery estimate: March 29th." Ummm...so my package left from somewhere in the US on Friday morning, and should have been delivered yesterday and that's all you can tell me?? Thanks...

We're getting boned with another bad housing comp that sold early last month, but I guess I can only feel sort of bad for these people. They bought a condo in Gaithersburg (twice as big as ours) just a few months after we bought ours, for $290K. The person who sold it to them owned it since 1989 and walked away with about $170K in pure profit. The new owners sold it (or the bank did) for $145K last month. Ouch.
