"I am sorry, but we are not doing our special, since we are all out of medium pizzas, and we won't be making any more night."
So they were not honoring the special since it was too popular?
Four tables left. It seems to me there was enough demand to make those medium pizzas - I mean, they were back there making dough for LARGE pizzas....
Methinks selling pizzas for $5 a pop was proving to hurt their daily cash flow.
