Go to chicken shop to get lunch for wife and I
ME: 2 chicken and mayo rolls please.
ATTENDANT: Sorry we are not doing them as we have no chickens for them.
Look in the hot box to see at least 15 whole chickens
ME: Yes you do. What are these?
ATTENDANT: They are for Christmas orders. We are not cutting up any chickens today. We can do Nuggets and chips only.
When has any shop declined orders because they are only doing Christmas orders only on the product that they are mainly selling (chicken). Surely they would have a chook or two for walk in who want menu items especially if they have not got a sign up saying “Christmas orders only on chickens”. The roast joint next door had the common sense to do that for their store.
