I bet this has happened to you. You’re in a big store (like a supermarket, for example) and: You can’t see any signs to guide you, so you end up walking up and down every single aisle before you find what you’re after. Products are sorted carelessly. The staff doesn’t know which products are or aren’t in stock. Truly chaotic.
Imagine the situation. You’ve decided to buy a product online and, after comparing a few models, you finally make up your mind – but decide to wait a couple more days to think it over. The typical “just in case”. And then, a message pops up: “Only 3 items left in stock”. You know it could be a trap, but you can’t help that feeling of doubt that arises. What if there are actually only three items left in stock and when you come back there aren’t any left? So you decide not to take any chances and buy it that very same day. Sound familiar?
