    always

    here is the sentence:

    Please order a ton of the following office supplies, because we're always running out.

    is it the same meaning with or without word "always" in this sentence? i have two understandings about this:
    1. we're almost running out of office supplies.
    2. we will be running out of office supplies sooner or later.

    could you please tell me which one is correct? thanks alot.

    Re: always

    we're always (frequently, often, seems like every day) running out.
