WE BOUGHT $610 WORTH OF GROCERIES

I went and bought $260 and then I told J I forgot a few things and she went and bought $350 :lol:

Well there was no chicken whatsoever, raw or frozen, at any Montgomery County Wegman's, so she stopped at a Chester County one on the way home.

There was only whole wheat pasta :lol: even in an emergency people won't seriously eat that shit.

They had plenty of time to write it. What else were they going to do while they waited? Write a good fiction novel?

Never ceases to amaze how many get so emotional. Do you really think there will be no groceries until after this summer. This virus is expected to be around that long.

We are only trying to slow its spreading. Then time exists to avert damage created even by two months of doing nothing.

We can expect two out of every three people to be infected. If dealing with that reality, then numbers may be lower. But stocking for an apocalypse will not do much for a problem that will exist for many months. Early science suggest it will still be problem into August.

Quarantines slow a spreading virus. A virus that progresses slower means it can be confronted with more success. For example, a million plus test kits and laboratories, that should have been in production and construction two months ago, can be created.

Suddenly a dumb president finally admits that Covid-19 is a threat. Only then do so many realize the obvious? How many were so ignorant as to listen to his lies even last month? Then had plenty of time to stock what is necessary.

Thomas,

We do expect groceries to be available. Wegmans has great logistics.

We also expect a very critical period over the next few weeks where we CAN visit stores, but really want to avoid it, as much as possible.

We did our shopping trip when there were 13 cases in the county. You'll do yours when there are 26, and again at 52, and again at 104, and again at 208.

Good luck.

Best time to shop is when stores are completely packed with shoppers? When waiting lines for checkout approached one half hour? I could not think of a worse time to shop.

Others today reported such waiting lines at 12:30, 2:30, and 5 PM.

Better time to shop is probably 2 AM. Then a virus has more than a few hours to die. Or in any of eight weeks earlier when this threat was obvious. Why suddenly most everyone in one day because a lying president finally admitted he was lying?

And why, of all things, toilet paper? One roll should last at least 60 man days. Does everyone literally waste a roll every week?

At last, now we all know why you're so full of shit.

Please, somebody, give this man a :bogroll:
