Why is it that a restaurant can order 1 case of glasses every 3 months for 3 years, and then all of a sudden want 5 cases by the week-end? What's that saying again, "Piss poor planning on your part....". But, it's all my fault for not anticipating your needs.
Or a restaurant that hasn't ordered a particular plate in 18 months gets pissed when you don't have 2 cases in stock?
Sorry, let me pull that out of my a__ for you so that I won't get in trouble for your lack of planning.
I'm also sorry that I don't have that 12 quart stock pot in stock since 3 restaurants decided to open at the same time. I'm also sorry that I don't have it because my boss (the owner's son) won't let me order more than once a month. It's not his money, it's his daddy's. And Daddy gets mad when I run out of things.
So, I think from now on, I will not ask for approval when ordering. I'll just ask for forgiveness when spending daddy's money.
