Not in Time Inventory

I understand that excess inventory is wasted money. But it still torques me when I need a staple product and the store is out.

I made my standard run to the local pet store conglomerate today. They receive shipments on Saturday and Wednesday, so I try to shop on either Monday or Thursday to insure adequate supplies. Today, I needed some house brand unscented clay litter. And they were out.

How can a pet store run out of kitty litter? I resent needing to know my store’s delivery schedule. I really resent needing to make a second visit this week to pick up more. And trust me, as a CSI: Connecticut, kitty litter is not fungible.
