What fact is common knowledge to people who work in your field, but almost unknown to the rest of the population?

So at a mom-and-pop type place, from hanging the order on an empty rail to putting it in a box a pizza takes 12 minutes to make. Now assume a delivery driver is sitting around waiting for your order and you live 8 minutes away. Hand-off, bagging, storing, and address lookup runs another 2 minutes, maybe 3. Add another 2-3 minutes for general delays and the quickest you could ever get a pizza from a mom-and-pop at an average distance from the restaurant is 25 minutes.

The only way a pizza place is going to have all hands on deck sitting around waiting for your order during normal food ordering times (and still be operational) is if they have crazy markup.
