Fast dialog:
Stocker: Can I help you find something?
Meg: Yes, I’m looking for coffee.
Stocker: That’s on aisle 3. Let me show you where it is.
Meg: Thanks. Hmm, I don’t see the Jitters brand that I normally buy.
Stocker: It looks like we’re out of stock. We should get another shipment next week.
Meg: Okay, I’ll check back. I’m also looking for the Fructose brand soda, but I didn’t see it in the soda aisle.
Stocker: I’m afraid that’s been discontinued. Their parent company no longer makes soda.
Meg: Really? I love Fructose soda. How about the Mushy brand bread? I didn’t see it when I checked the bread aisle.
Stocker: We no longer stock the Mushy brand. There were so quality control issues at the company, so we’ve pulled all of their products from the shelves. Can I help you find anything else?
Meg: No, I guess I’ll just have to try some new brands. Oh, yes, do you carry Worm organic apples?
Stocker: We normally do, but they’re out of season right now. We won’t have any until early summer.
Meg: All of this shopping and I have nothing to show for it. I guess I’m going home empty-handed.
Stocker: We do have chocolate cakes and cookies on sale.
Meg: I’m there!
