The business model for couriers is wrong - rather than pay them up front to deliver something, we should guarantee them a fee for on-time delivery which decreases by half for each day they are late.

"OH, we had way more items than we expected and yours didn't get on to the truck. I will request that they deliver it tomorrow."

Me: (stupidly) "What would have happened to it if you hadn't made that request?"

"I have no idea, sir."

Me: "Aaarrrgggghhhh!"
You do realize who owns Purolator? That would be Canada Post. Talk about closing the market.
