Order tracking amusement

OK, my new shiny has been dispatched. The supplier up in Leicester sent me an email last night to tell me so, complete with UPS tracking code.

Whee, can't wait!

Oh, where is it, where is it, where is it?!

Is it here yet?

No sign of the UPS van yet, so off to the UPS site to enter the tracking code.

Ah, yes, there it ... is .....

Pardon me while I boggle slightly. No, not at the fact that I'm being shipped a package from the US. No, at the fact that it's got to the stage that a supplier will source a package from the US for a single order, and get it shipped directly to me, and that I would be totally unaware without having checked with UPS.
