Adventures in Grocery Shopping

[size4]My county is currently o.n a "Stay at Home/ Work Smart" mandate from our mayor, so I'm o.n a 2-day work schedule until further notice. I'll still get a 40 hour paycheck, but only work sixteen hrs a week. Thank God I'm not self employed anymore.

So today, like every other fucker in town, I thought I'd go to the store and get my groceries. I arrived 30 mins prior to opening and a line of about 75 hoarders wrapped around the building. Once the doors opened at 8am we slowly marched forward, picking carts o.n the way, until I was 2nd from the door t.o get in. That's when an employee walked past the line announcing they were out of toilet paper and would not be restocking any today. Greeeeat!!!!

Once inside, there was hardly anyone there since everyone was so spread out. Even still, some people can manage to block an entire aisle by themselves. I made mental notes o.f who I was "taking out" if things went south. Old people who should know better, racing around cutting people off, young people wandering aimlessly and getting in my way, stupid shoppers that feel a need t.o handle every package of ground hamburger meat, as if they are buying by "feel" rather than by quantity or price. I was well armed with a couple of heavy cans of refried beans just in case I needed t.o "learn" somebody some manners.

I found most everything I wanted. Alas, no Fresca. I did pick u.p a small pack of table napkins, just in case my , "El Douche" runs out of his toilet paper. He's not getting mine.

Have they not set limits yet there with the quantity of items per customer? Even though they have here, there was also still no T.P. at three stores I went to yesterday as my supply is getting low now.....lol. Fun times we live in now eh!

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

I don't know why people haven't figured out that butt wipes work just as well - if not better - than TP. I sufficiently stocked up on both two weeks ago and am now guarding my supply against all comers!

Around here, my odds are good but the goods are odd

I work at a grocery store, at the deli counter. Just imagine how all us grocery employees feel. We have to deal with every insane, crazy and freaked out customer that walks through the door. And let me tell you it has not been easy. I strolled through the the other night and half the store is empty. No toilet paper, paper towels, milk, eggs, bread, meats, hand sanitizer, ramen noodles and even cupcakes. You would think it is the zombie apocalypse the way people are acting and hoarding. Hopefully this madness will be over soon.

Thanks again for the laughs, even though there are some kernels of truth/reality in there. The shoppers who decide to visit with their neighbor who they run into while in Aisle 7 are my favs ... oblivious to all others around them and making it difficult to navigate past them ... grrr. Sometimes just for fun I'll stop my cart and just stand there for a minute, staring at them while they talk until one of them notices I'm eavesdropping.

LOL

None of us are getting out alive, so let's at least try to be nice to each other while we're here.

Just a thought McMc - you could always recycle the bog roll, let your son re-use yours if he runs out?!? Yes, my genius knows no bounds....and you're welcome!

Mental out there, I don't think people are paying any attention to just how virulent Covid 19 is, or perhaps the information is so inconsistent and confused. Either way, even if the mortality rate turns out to be close to the common flu, the infection rate is conservatively estimated at 60 - 80%! Scary stuff.

Pull ma finger.........

So, you eat the beans and fart them into oblivion . . . right?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Sounds like your dealing with the same things we all are, you know what I don't get is these damn hoarders, they have been told not to do this but they just don't listen..I hope things get better soon, and your staying healthy and safe, and enjoy what's left of your Hump Day..

I wear full hockey gear with roller blades in lieu of ice skates.

That way I can effortlessly cruise the store at 20 mph, in and out in a flash, minimizing my exposure to the hoarding hordes.

A hockey stick comes in handy to reach those topmost items that the regular scavengers can't, and the elbow pads ensure that social distancing is easily maintained.

People are crazy.... I work at a grocery store that used to be open 24 hours until the shelter at home thing.... We now open at 8am. On Tuesday we opened an our early for the seniors and the customers with compromised immune systems. There were hundreds of people lined up to get into the building. The biggest complaint I heard was "Why are there so many people in here? I thought this was a special shop time." I asked one of the women who complained to me... "Do you see anyone shopping that doesn't meet the criteria?" She looked around, didn't say anything, then walked away. This whole thing has really shown me just how selfish people really are.

On the news they report a lot about the healthcare workers but never the grocery store employees who have thousands of people passing by them daily more worried about their own groceries than the employees health. Thank You for your service, sir!!!!!

Next time you get some Fresca, try it with rum. The grapefruit flavor and rum fit nicely together!

I usually stop and stare off until they get a creepy feeling and just want to get the hell away from me. m

Well, a special thanks to you and the guy who posted that he worked in the deli dept. Y'all are front line attendants with thousands of people parading past you all day long. Today I was asked to step back from my cart while the bagger loaded it. I hadn't even considered his situation.

I don't think I could stand the idea of standing in line to get into a grocery store....

Next thing you know people will be driving through the wall of the grocery store to steal the TP. I solved the issue in my TP post.... As long as they don't shut off the town water supply anyways.

I put it off for 2 weeks, but after doing it, I found it wasn't that bad.
Just a few idiots in the stores.

I'm glad my sister dropped off two rolls because the shelves are empty every time I go to the store. I've been able to find food and pet food, just not paper goods.
stay safe Mc!!

I imagine the hoarders will eventually feel safe enough to allow the rest of us to survive.
