You are looking for a birthday gift for your best friend. Unfortunately, the item you wanted to buy is out of stock. "Hello," a store clerk says. "I see that you're looking for the new album. We recently sold out of that, but we have another band's album here that is very similar. You should really buy this one right now. If you don't, you'll probably find that there's nothing to give your friend at all!" What fallacy did the clerk just commit?

    its defintly not bandwagon and im relatively sure its not slander. .however it might be a false delimma.bc for sure you can get your friend something...and correlation and causation fallacy ..althugh its related ..not getting that albumn is not the cause of there being nothing to get your friend...one of those 2 i think

    I'm leaning towards false dilemma, too. The clerk is creating a situation in which you can only pick one or the other, but I'd say it's false because there's nothing to stop you from going to an alternative store.
