	Not so fast. While each of his customers is more inconvenienced than each
c&w customer, c&w has more customers. The net inconvenience (total number of
people inconvenienced multiplied by the average inconvenience to each) might
be nearly the same on both sides. As an added bonus, he has someone else to
blame.
