In Soviet England...

I tried to buy hangers at Argos today. You poke through a phone book sized catalog, pick numbers of items you want and then a clerk gets them for you. The conversation went something like this:

Ben: I don't see any hangers in your catalog, but you sell them right?

Clerk: Yes. Let's see... page 143. But, they usually sell out as soon as we get them in. I'll check if we have any. No. Let me see if any of the surrounding stores have any... No.

Ben: When will you get more in?

Clerk: I don't know.

Ben: Is there anywhere else I can get hangers around here?

Clerk: I don't know.

Ben: Thanks anyway.

Demand > Supply -> Order more hangers. Right? What's next, toilet paper shortages?
