I went to the store today and someone yelled out at me about not wearing a mask. I told him if he wanted to fight about it and the fucker walked away!

I remember when this first hit in April I was in line with a landwhale who had her cart filled to the top of non perishable food. Her bill must of been at least a couple grand.

Re: Anybody who thinks nothing's happening ISN'T PAYING ATTENTION!!!
I just got back from the grocery store and I swear you have to be deaf, dumb and blind to think "everything's normal."

No, I was not at Wal-Mart. And I'm not talking about the STOOOPID "mask mandatory" rule. I try to stay out of Wal-Mart just for that very reason. Unfortunately, we live in a very small town, and there aren't a lot of options for some items, so you find yourself, by necessity, going into there. And even so, THEY are out of a lot of things, too. I tried to buy a cheap laptop there....need one for Zoom for my work, as my microphone doesn't work on my old faithful. THEY WERE OUT. She tried to switch me to a more expensive one with a smaller screen. Nope. I just didn't buy one. I'll just borrow one from a friend to make my Zoom lessons on, and then if my students want to consult with me, I'll have to do it one-on-one by phone.

So this was groceries, and I went to my usual grocery store. I dunno, maybe it's just because I hadn't been there in quite a while, but there sure were a LOT of empty spaces on the shelves. Many, many items just MISSING. Lots of open shelving. They were not even trying to "fill in" with other items. Just BLANK.

People, if you're not stocking (STOCKED) up, you'd better get to it! There was a shortage on silly things that I like to keep in stock, like cans and jars of beef gravy and powdered mixes for sauces, etc.

But they were short on staples too, like canned veggies, some dairy items, lunch meat, bread (still!), TP and Paper towels.

Some things are available, but the prices seemed to have DOUBLED since I bought them last (maybe 2 months ago?). Weird, tho, the price of bacon seems to have dropped by HALF! I think the threads lately that have talked about "supply chain" and "Distribution managers" telling everyone that they are NOT getting items in as they order them better be taken seriously.

Something is happening.

And it's happening SOOO incredibly incrementally that we're JUST like the frog in the water on the stove, and we aren't even realizing how hot it's going to get yet. And by the time we do, it'll be too late to stock up.

I, for one, will be going back to top off my freezers and pantry. I know many here will come on and BRAG you've got venison and canned vegs in the cellar....blah, blah. I believe only a small FRACTION of those on here saying they're all set really are.

Even the "impulse items" by the register, where they put all the candy bars and shit you're supposed to buy while you wait to check out. GONE!! EMPTY!!! Just my take away from my first trip "to town" to shop in a month or two, and I was blown away by what I saw.

Took pictures, too!

Not seeing any shortages here in Mexico .
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78194715


Work Retail in British Columbia Canada and our shelves are always stocked actually allot of local stores are reopening COVID cases decreasing & we’re Pretty good right now. Starting to see why allot of Americans are leaving for Canada not to mention our Medical and Minimal Wage is way better than what they got in America & our Beer is stronger. Not to mention now we’re fighting back against America also most Canadians our agreeing to stop buying American & we’re pushing for more Factory Production in Canada. Also we’re now turning Americans away from our country because of how bad COVID is ontop of Trump & Citizens being Idiots. So Trump & Antifa really screwed America over and is setting them back as a Higher/Super Power unless they get someone in office who repairs that image America is done as a Respectable country & just becomes & remains a joke.

Look at them all flipping out America is burning. Trump & Antifa makenthem all look like jokes even the good ones. Maybe they will start smarting up and doing something about The president & Teach these Antifa kids to settle down since it seems like a whole generation wasn’t raised properly the parents & Grandparents need to stand up for what was fought for during WW1 & WW2 All those ancestors probably tossing in there graves. Disappointments.

I went to get my son's haircut at Great Clips and there's a big sign outside that says "Only 11 people Allowed at a time". And get this...inside,ALL THE CHAIRS IN THE FRONT (ABOUT 15 OF THEM) HAD BEEN REMOVED AND THERE WAS A WOMAN AND HER LITTLE DAUGHTER SITTING ON THE FLOOR WAITING FOR A HAIRCUT. Evidently, the "virus" spreads faster if you sit in a chair. Since we had to wait, we went next door for a taco and both of the round outside table/benches had the bench side closest to the door taped off with "Do not sit on this bench" written across. Evidently, the "virus" spreads faster if you sit by the door than if you sit across the table. Inside, all chairs were put up and you have to order and go outside to wait until the girl brings the food to go.

I seriously can not take this shit anymore!! PEOPLE REALLY BELIEVE THAT THIS IS REAL!!!!!
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy Shit! What a ride!"

In times of trouble, I ask myself, "What would Sarah Conner do?" Compared to the apocalypse, everything else ain't shit.

I KNOW!! It's like "normal, semi-intelligent" people are all losing their minds and cannot think for themselves how LUDICROUS the whole scenario is!

I keep telling people, "WEll, the RIOTS and PROTESTING *PROVED* to us that "social distancing" has nothing to do with catching the "virus," since none of them were practicing that, and 70 days later - NONE OF THEM HAS GOT IT.
