Satisfaction Guaranteed

Copacetic: (co-pa-setik) adjective-Completely satisfactory; in excellent order.  Most products have a copacetic guarantee-100% satisfaction or your money back.
Origin: unknown, though many unproven theories exist. Probably originated among African Americans in the US South in the early 20th century or late 19th century.
1. My run this morning was copacetic.
2. Cool temperatures and sunshine provided a copacetic spring day.
3. The service was not copacetic, and I felt I need to let the manager know.
4. All the paperwork for the passport application was copacetic.

So, I'm wondering if things can be copacetic (completely satisfactory) without being copacetic (in excellent order)?=)
