Last weekend when my boyfriend and I were in the pie shop, we learned that they were having some specials for Pi Day. I’d been thinking about it ever since then and was planning to get several different slices since they’d only be $3.14. When I got down there, I found out there was only one type of pie and only small, unflavored lattes featured as part of the sale.  Not only that, they were sold out of that one pie at the moment and it would be another 20 minutes before any more would be ready. I admit it was presumptuous of me to think that all of their pie would be on sale, but for them to be a pie shop advertising a gimmick-based sale on Pi Day only to have one type of pie for the sale and not have it fully stocked really hurt my feelings. The two people in front of me left without ordering when they heard the pie was unavailable, but I ordered a latte and a slice of regular-priced pie because I am physically incapable of leaving without buying something if I am in a place that sells things.
