Can it depend on who makes the decision? What if I ask one set of people
to deliver my package, but another set of people make it impossible for
them to get into the warehouse / vehicle on Sunday? And if I could guess
as much that even if they wanted to deliver on Sunday it's not really
in their power to do so?
