As a small business owner I don't think corporate CP realizes that they're shooting themselves in the foot by dragging this out. When this goes on for as long as it is has it forces business' to be creative and look for other ways of handling business outside of CP. Will all of those companies, (mine included) go back to using CP aferwards? Admittedly some will, but some won't.
On a personal level, I've got a -bunch- of business money locked up at CP right now from clients who mailed their payments to me. I can't pay bills and keep my business afloat without efficient delivery systems in place. If corporate CP doesn't want to provide that service (I'm not blaming the ground workers at all) then I simply need to find someone else to provide the service instead. IF I still have a business after this nonesense is done.
