script.js

The instructions for task 1 say to "remove the first item from the array and place it in the shipping variable.", but this code stores it in "myItem" instead.

You also won't need to "push" anything for this challenge.

Challenge 1 asks you to remove the first item from the array and store it in a variable named shipping:

var shipping = orderQueue.shift();

Challenge 2 asks you to remove the last item and store it in a variable named cancelled:

var cancelled = orderQueue.pop();
