When you order roses, you would like to get roses, and when you order a chocolate gift basket, you would like it to be filled with chocolates, right? Moreover, if for some reason there are no roses at the florist, or no chocolates to fill a gift basket, you want to be informed of such; not simply have the gift you ordered be substituted with just any old thing. How would you feel if you ordered a gift basket of chocolates and received a gift basket of fruits? Not that fruits aren’t tasty, but is it what you ordered? Is it what you intended upon sending or receiving? No.

People work hard for their money and whenever they purchase anything; they expect to get what they paid for and when it cannot be done, not just substituted for whatever else is lying around. They want to be informed on what their money is going to, what it is they are truly purchasing.
