PALESTINE, TX—The Jack in the Box in Palestine announced today that they were out of all products, but straws. Palestine residents are familiar with the restaurant being out of product, but this is the first time the establishment has been out of everything.
According to the manager, who did not speak English, “Estamos fuera de todo excepto las papas.” Translated by Google: We are out of everything but the straws.
According to a company spokesperson, customers are asked to be patient, but to help the restaurant continue to pay their employees.
“We’re asking customers to buy food at nearby restaurants and then return to Jack in the Box and buy a straw for a quarter,” the spokesperson said. “This way, we can continue to keep our doors open while we wait on the truck, due tomorrow.”
The restaurant is also out of all 100 flavors of drinks.
“We literally have nothing but the straws to sell,” the spokesperson said.
The manager was very apologetic.
“Lo siento por esto y no voy a decir que no puede suceder de nuevo, pero voy a tratar mejor,” the manager said.
