The courier business disappeared. First it was FAX machines and now with Email and the Internet there is just no need for that many couriers.
The glow may have worn off a bit too. The customers probably got tired of supporting a bunch of rowdies that sometimes showed up at their offices drunk or stoned. (I was a courier in DC on several incarnations)
HWG what company did your friend work for? Did you know Scrooge? Everybody with bikes knows Scrooge.
