Why doesn't the original document I'm dragging and dropping from one folder to another move?

 

What's happening is the computer is creating a duplicte of the document and placing it in the new location with a new creation date.  The original document I wanted to drag and drop into a new location remains where it started as the "original" document and the new copy has this little arrow protruding up from the lower left of its icon.

 

At first I thought it was an alias, but it's a copy of the document I thought I was dragging and dropping.

 

What gives here?
