Wasteful Corporations

We recently bought two lights for the house. They were reduced in the sale, but looked great so we thought we would get a couple more. I stopped at a couple of branches of the store on the way home, but nothing in stock. Finally, they checked the code for me and said that they did have them in stock but they are marked 'to be skipped' and they are not allowed to sell them to me. So rather than make a few quid, they will skip them and no doubt send them off to landfill. The wonderful world of the big corporations!
