Just about every day, while scanning my items, the cashier asks "Did you find everything you were looking for?" I always say "Yes, thanks" either because it's true, or because I am in a hurry and found a suitable substitute. But today they were out of everything. My lunch Plan A and Plan B fell apart. So when I got to the register, I waited for the question. And when it came, I responded with "No, I actually couldn't find any vegetables and you're all out of organic raisins, gluten free oatmeal, and brown rice."
I waited. I figured I would get some info about shipment plans, maybe a secret stash in the back storeroom I could pilfer from. Something useful. And then, the response came:
"Wow. Bummer. Yeah, we're running low."
Thank God for bananas.
