Perhaps FedEx Could Monitor the Calendar a Bit More Closely

FedEx has no idea what season it is.

In the northern hemisphere, winter ended on March 20th, 2018. That’s over five weeks ago. And yet, FedEx’s tracking page continues to show this message:

This message has been an unchanging fixture for something like the last four months, through all manner of weather, and now into spring.

My business partner Quentin has a theory that the person who originally set this message left, and now no one at FedEx knows how to remove it. Hey, it’ll make sense again in just eight more months.

Me, I just like to check in on it every few days. I appreciate the constancy.
