I place a pickup order online with my local grocery store, and they're out of the very thing that prompted me to make the order.

Of course, their website doesn't warn you about this in advance.

You're hanging your hopes on the idea that no one in-store will buy the last one before the pickup-compiler-person does.

And the order is locked down on the website, so I can't sub in some other turkey slices.

So I end up having to... having to... to... walk inside and buy turkey slices by hand, with the other common people 😲 😫 as I wait for the pickup order to come out.

Why do bad things happen to good people.

You have luxury problems. People in Gaza and Haiti are starving.

Find a grocer store where the pickers sub-in an alternative “turkey slice” for you; or try to be less embarrassed about buying the ribbed-for-her-pleasure ones in person 😜

Give up factory farmed meat and give a few turkeys a happy short life in your garden. They’ll taste much better with a stress free life 🐣

I know your post is sarcastic, but do people in general still eat turkey slices? These things are carcinogenic.

Good Idea, but about half of the US population do not have a garden. Of those that do about half of them have only flowers and other inedible plants. Even less have chickens running around. The average family in the US have only dogs and cats. These stats are similar in most first world countries.

In fact having a garden that produces food or contains animals for food is banned in some residential areas, as the priority is preserving the market value of the neighbourhood.

Just my humble opinion, perhaps the world should be more concerned about 3rd world problems. People that are getting bombed and starving are bigger issues in my mind.

my electric insect fogger takes four different poisons to kill all the stuff my non-buddhist tush cannot stand buzzing in my ear
my electric chainsaw can dismember a body just a quickly as my ole stihl
my electric stepford wife never runs outta juice
my electric toothbrush has a tiny short that tingles so sweet
my dodge challenger makes a lot of noise

Just like 'billionaire' problems just on a smaller scale.
