I had no idea that a country could run out of CO2. I hope I’m gone before the great gas crisis of 2006 causes riots in the streets. People will not be happy without their fizzy drinks.
The sign says:
The Coca-Cola Bottling System and related industries are currently experiencing a major shortage of CO2. The major supplier of CO2 in South Africa is encountering production problems. We regret that as a result you may experience some difficulty in purchasing some of our carbonated soft drinks.
We do realise that this is a great inconvenience to you, we are doing our utmost to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.
As a valued consumer, we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.
