Salt Lake City, UT – After Apple announced that it would be lowering its 2019 revenue forecast due to the ongoing trade war between the United States and China, sales manager Tyler Knox immediately worried about the impact that the stalemate would have on his favorite dining experience, Panda Express. According to coworkers, Knox hasn’t been this stressed since the 2015 U.S. egg shortage forced the Asian restaurant chain to temporarily remove their hot and sour soup from the menu.
“While President Trump and President Xi play politics, the rest of us suffer,” bemoaned Knox. “They don’t realize that they’re impacting our lives, and, quite possibly, also our delicious lunch options.
“In the meantime, I’m buying a standalone freezer just to fill it to the brim with their signature Orange Chicken.”
Should the trade war impact Panda Express’ supply of cream cheese rangoon, Knox has informed his family that he is willing to eat lunch at the Thai place across the street going forward.
