Physical networks fail.

They get unplugged. Squirrels chew through the wires. Squirrels partially chew through the wires and water leaks onto them. Your router will be misconfigured. Your ISP's router will be misconfigured. Power will fail. Power will surge. Copper corrodes. Fiber decays.

It is because of the pervasive nature of this failure that TCP even exists.
