"bait and switch" is again being misused

I swear every time I see "bait and switch" I hear Inigo Montoya's voice saying... "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Running out of stock is NOT bait-and-switch. it happens. stores do not have a TARDIS to provide infinite storage.
And frankly I'm rather surprised anyone gave out a 100-count raincheck for anything.
Plus it's a bit ironic really. You're claiming bait-and-switch because they dared run out... what do you think the 100-count order is going to do to the stock?
And what will you do if say... the customer ahead of you buys up everything first? Is it then still OK to sell that much to a single customer?
