There are truly routine matters which are anticipated and can be handled with a minimal amount of effort and then there are matters that are cloaked as routine but which consume so much time they can more accurately be described as special or customized.
If someone else has mislabeled them that can be irritating but often we are the culprit. We mentally labeled an item as routine and failed to recognize its intricacies.
It's a small example of how our use of words can be a form of self-deception.
