Online shopping order arrives at most convenient time within allocated slot

Consumers received a much sought after surprise today as folk across the nation received their online shopping orders at a time that was generally agreed to be "most convenient".

Online grocery shoppers received an extra "boon" when their orders arrived at the earliest point in their allocated time slot. Man of the people, Geoff Sweatstein tells us:

"I had a grocery delivery set to arrive at some point between 7am and 9am. Ideally it'd come as early as possible so I can get to work on time, but it never does. Invariably it arrives at 9am, which is fine because that's what I've come to expect, but my boss has warned me that future infractions of the employee start-time code will result in discipline.

"Well, bugger me with a lead pipe in the conversatory if today's order didn't turn up at 7. I got to work on time, and was only fired because I add my wife's breast milk into the fancy coffee machine we have. Well, that and the sexist and racist abuse."

It seems that businesses around the world have declared the 27th January to be National Arbitrarily Deliver Suitably day (NADS day), which frankly is a terrible name that one can only guess was made up purely for the purposes of a lame acronym.

This is not Geoff Sweatstein, signing off.
