Whoops, there I go again trying to use logic to figure out how the WH operates.
what they do is they take all the package envelopes with the addresses already on them and they throw them up into the air. whatever ones land address side up, they take those, put everything inside, and ship them out that day. the rest are left for tomorrow. the next day, they take all the packages, throw them in the air, and whatever lands address side up gets sent out that day. they do this over and over until all the packages land address side up.
this is why who gets their package and when doesn't make sense. not everybody from the same town will land address side up at the same time. some might take a few tries before finally landing right. this is why some people don't get their package for 3 weeks after other people. their envelop just never landed the right way until then.
