Common English conversation - "SHOULD" pt.2

We sometimes use 'should' to show something is strange or different than you expect.

"It's almost 11:30, the pizza should be here by now." = I expected the pizza to arrive before now.

"I ordered a new carpet 3 weeks ago, it should have arrived by now." - 3 weeks is a long time to wait and my new carpet hasn't arrived yet. It's longer than I expected.
"No wonder the pizza is late! I think it's time to buy a new delivery van."
