Post Office plays Ping Pong

At Soft Star Shoes, we love the Post Office... they are reliable and fast. However, once and a while errors do happen, ... and this one has us all scratching our heads.

Check out the tracking information on the package we are trying to get to a customer in Brooklyn, NY. The shoes arrive, get sent back to Portland, go back to Brooklyn, then back to Portland, then back to Brooklyn... and apparently are still playing coast-to-coast ping pong a month later!

The Post Office also does not know what is happening! My guess is a programmer with a penchant for mischief hid an "Easter egg" in their bar code tracking software so that someone with a lucky bar code gets caught in the paddles of it trap.... hmmmmm. Your thoughts?
