Would you consider this a bad experience?

I don't wanna be one of those people who rant about a place for no reason, so I wanna ask you your opinion about what happened and you tell me if I'm right to be upset.

Macarons: I've been addicted to them since I discovered them. Always searching in Montreal for the best place.
After searching and testing, I discovered that Europea boutique on Notre-Dame have the best one.
I went there a couple times and was always happy with their selection and they always had plenty, no matter what time I was going.

But, the last two times I went, they only had a few flavor left and not the ones I like.
So, last time, I called to know when they would get the one I love. I was told Tuesday. (of last week)
Comes Tuesday, I call to make sure I wouldn't go downtown for no reason. (I live in the far end of the west-island)
The lady tell me that yes, they have plenty!
I get in my car, drive for an hour, only to see 4 macarons left in the whole store. I ask them what happened and one of the employe inform me that they only have the macarons there left and that she's making small boxes for a special order. I explain to her that I just called to make sure I wasn't coming here for no reason.
She smile and goes back to her things.
I was mad and left the store without answering the other employe who said "Aurevoir"

I wasn't expecting them to lay a plate of macaron for me, but just a "Sorry" or something.

So, is my experience a bad one or I'm just over reacting?
