Summers Year in Review 2016 - #3

Slumlog is not a scandal sheet but we wanted to tackle one of the biggest Summers scandals of 2016 right here on these pages.

The Great Tito's Fiasco of 2016 rocked Summers to its foundation and traumatized patrons and patronizers in the Summer of 2016.

Let me set the scene.

The sun is shining. The air is warm. The seats outside Summers have no cushions because Joe knows that rather than having a comfortable place to recline, people like to use seat cushions to start fires even though it is hot outside in the bright sun.

In the atmosphere of no pain, no gain, nothing helps an uncomfortable customer forget all their worries, forget all their fears, forget their sore rears like a clean, crisp and refreshing Tito's & Soda.

Except Tito's Vodka disappeared off the menu overnight.

Vanished without a trace. Didn't even say goodbye.

When reached for comment about the sudden disappearance of his most popular commodity, Joe was reported to have said, "Hey, customers were buying too much Tito's."

For shame Joe, for shame, If there's one thing you should have learned from the business school you clearly never attended, it should be selling stuff customers will buy.
