I’ve seen several news stories about the rise of e-filing killing the careers of bike messengers, but apparently business is good if you deliver food and not court documents.
James Beard, a former paralegal who did not find desk-work appealing, told New Orleans CityBusiness that he loves his job delivering food for Fiorella’s Cafe:
