Finding the right address

When you screw up the address, gettting a package can be hard. But also kind of impressive. I accidently entered a melange of my school and home address (street address at home, city at school) when I bought a coffee grinder on-line. But UPS figured out the correct city that went along with the street address -- despite there being no clues whatsoever. Very impressive.

This turns out to be deeply annoying for I want the thing delivered to Swarthmore and not Madison, necessitating calling UPS tomorrow morning: for some obscure reason, the UPS call center person couldn't enter the new address until it was off the truck tomorrow morning. Still, the logistics of it all are rather impressive.
