7TH BIRTHDAY SURPRISE: A Tale of Woe And Misery (probably)

ACraigL went on a bit of a rant said

Like many, I was delighted to see I was gifted a Meh 7th Birthday Surprise. I also just moved on August 17th, so I wasn’t planning to order anything, but I did have the USPS forwarding instructions to my new address when the surprise came.

Here’s the current status of my surprise. Also, I’ve been avoiding threads for fear of spoilers, so NO SPOILERS PLEASE.

Arrived at USPS Regional Facility
Your item arrived at our USPS facility in DALLAS TX NETWORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER on August 30, 2021 at 1:43 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination.

TL;DR Why can’t the post office just deliver it to the new address on record, which is 7 minutes away from the original destination rather than go ALL THE WAY BACK TO TEXAS FIRST??? Meh.
