Yes of course, I have not been able to get what I wanted in a shop or restaurant many times. It hapens when there aren't products what we want, for example there aren't a right size when we want to buy some clothes.

Oh! A bad situation for the baker. She looks very patient with that old man. An unlucky day for Sammy and Julia. Though the store near that quite loads but Julia can buy sandwiches fast for Sammy and enjoy their lunch. Thai Hung Phi Vietnamese
