I bought something online. DHL was the cheapest/fastest combination offered, so that's the shipping method I selected, and I've always used FedEx or UPS, so variety is good, eh?
And, this being the Bright New Future, I received a link to the DHL tracking page for my order. Hurrah!
Then I follow the link to see what the status of my shipping order is... and I get a blank page. WTF?
Dumb. I already used the page. I discovered the information I was looking for.
Of course, if someone at DHL runs across this, I see three ways it can go:
- Nothing happens. I'm a crank on "the internet" and it's vitally important not to upset the web developers by offering up criticism; besides, I should just get with the program and jump on the Web 2.0 bandwagon and trust everyone already, instead of being a paranoid freak.
I think the middle option is actually the most probable outcome, and would demonstrate level of corporate stupidity that moderately intelligent people have come to expect.
