Funny focaccia experience at Whole Foods

So Mrs. W. asked me to pick up some focaccia to make panini with. I struck out at Wegmans, but knew that WF has focaccia. So today I went to the WF in Fair Lakes (Fairfax) VA to pick it up.
Was told at the bakery counter that they only had it on weekends. Ok, fine.
Walking down a bit to the food bar area, I noticed some sandwiches in the case on focaccia. I asked the lady if I could buy a whole one. She said, sure. Went in the back and got one for me. Was a little cool, but still fresh.
So there is your focaccia work-around for today!
I have encountered a similar problem with Whole Pay Check recently. Was told they only have Ciabatta bread on Thursday! WTF is this?? Only on Thursday!!! Really? So no one wants/buys Ciabatta on Monday?? Total nonsense!!
I understand over producing and shrinkage in retail, but this is just stupid. Was up visiting my daughter a few weeks ago....on Thursday. Not the first loaf of Ciabatta. "So sorry, we forgot" ~ I call a district office to complain....they halfheartedly apologized. 3 hours later I get a call from some Ass-hat Team Leader (spare me please!!) they have now baked some off and I can get a loaf for FREE. Sure Ass-Hat Team Leader, I'm three hours down the road now. ~~~ Seriously, what is it with these people only having certain breads on certain days.
Either you are in business or you're not. ~~ Load the damn wagon...don't worry about the mule!
