    I've heard of it but don't know where it is. There's a Perris CA.. Not the same as Paris but sounds the same... There's also another city in CA named after a state. Can't remember what it is right now. Getting old sux... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Ther's an Ontario CA. too...

    I'm pretty sure... It might have been another Canadian city... but whatever it was, it was in California... and I was thrown off when I saw the CA...

    it actually happened at work...

    I ship software from Quark to people... And there's a whole different process for shipping to Canada... and I was on a roll sending orders out like a bat outta hell... so I saw the something, CA and without looking at the postal code (Canada has those weird Letter/Number combos) I just assumed it was Canada because I knew the city was a Canadian one and CA is the Canada thing... So I started going through the whole process for shipping to Canada and there's a little box that pops up where I have to enter the value for Customs... and it didn't pop up... so I was like what the heck?!?!

    I inspected further and realized it was going to California... so I wasted 3 sheets of paper, my time, some ink from a rubber stamp, some ink from a pen, and... that's about it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    They have. There are two Brentwoods (don't know if they both have zip codes).

    There's a Nevada City, a California City here also.
