Whether you are a catholic or not, I can tell you for sure that his visits are a huge pain in the butt for anyone who happens to live in the area. Everything in your city is disrupted to the point that you want to convert to Catholicism just to get him on his way and get him out of there. No parking. Businesses close. Certain roads are closed adding to your drive time. On and on.
Well, here is yet another disruption that the pope is causing. People in New York and Philadelphia who are expecting to find a box containing their brand new Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus at their door on September 25th, might be a little upset that their phone may not arrive until Monday, September 28th. The reason for the delay is Pope Francis. He strikes again.
In case you were not aware, the Pope is visiting New York and Philadelphia next week, and UPS is halting deliveries in certain regions of these cities. The delivery halt is from Thursday, September 24th through Saturday, September 26th. Since the next day is a Sunday, package deliveries won’t take place in the affected areas until Monday, September 28th. UPS says they are implementing this plan as a security precaution.
Here are the Zip Codes affected by the delivery halt in New York City are 10001, 10007, 10017, 10021, 10022, 10023, and 10029. In Philadelphia, affected Zip Codes are 19102, 19103, 19104, 19106, 19107, 19109, 19123, 19130, 19146, and 19147.
