Uh, duh?

Every year, at roughly the same time, Catholics go through a period of ritual fasting (and other stuff) during Lent. I'm not entirely sure if all Christians have the same (admittedly stupid) restrictions, but here it is:

Catholics are not supposed to eat meat on Fridays during Lent.

So while I was taking my dad to dialysis, we decided we were really hungry and stopped by the Burger King near his treatment center.

And they're out of fish filets. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

I could understand if it was mid-August or something. But Lent is (roughly) the same time every year - somewhere in March to somewhere in April. So why is it so difficult for fast food places (indeed, any restaurant that stands to benefit from this time of year) to keep fish/seafood in stores? Why not order more early, especially since Lent is every year?
