I have to admit, I ended up being really bad for this and I even ended up closing my business down because I couldn't handle how out of control it was getting ( moreso compounded by dreadful postage delivery rates ).

For cottage / single-person / sole-trader type establishments it's a very big problem if they have to do more than simply "put it in the bag", because there's just too many other influences in their daily lives that interfere with smooth running. If you skip/miss the shipment for more than 2 days it has a very strong risk of cascading from there.

So glad I'm out of that situation now, these days I do vastly more interesting, unique, on-demand jobs and they pay a lot better too.

All that said, I agree it's not a good thing and there isn't any real excuse for it.
