Report after Report, video after video, people are literally standing in lines a half fucking mile long to get into some CostCo’s and other Big Box retailers trying to get the last roll of toilet paper.
As my wife says, it’s stupid.
But wait, I know a guy see, and he knows someone and just how much are you willing to pay for some good asswipe dude?
The thing is, it isn’t just asswipe and I am just as guilty as some of these other dumbasses, kind of.
I say kind of because I used the current crisis as an excuse to get something I have been wanting for several years now.
The trouble with that was, apparently it’s another item that people are literally lining up for and cleaning out as soon as the truck backs up and open the doors and I am not kidding.
That is literally what the store manager of a local Home Depot told me on the phone after I tried the local Lowes and they had zero in stock. He said they sold the entire truck load right on the loading dock.
That was also after I couldn’t even get anyone to answer the damn phone at the Home Depot across the river in Jantzen Beach because I was really not wanting to have to pay that much sales tax.
This other Must Have item?
Obviously I got one eh?
Right across the street from the gas station I was at when I talked to the guy at Home Depot.
Of course I paid a little more for it but it was at one of those “outside the box” places I mentioned where the Sheeple apparently don’t go to shop, the local Geriatric Ward of Chain Stores,
They had a couple in the back, ready to go.
I moved some Emergency Money into an account I could use a card with before I left, walked outside to see it snowing like a bastard and fired up the Caballero first thing after I woke up. After I got home I spent two freaking hours rearranging shit out in the garage trying to find a home for it. I still want to get a couple more movers dollies to set it on better before I start putting anything in it but it does work and it wasn’t beat to shit like several people discovered theirs were after buying them at The Big Box stores according to the reviews I read.
The wife is unhappy, thinks I am an idiot and am running scared needlessly. She thinks this whole Corona Virus thing is way overblown.
I been wanting a little freezer and I got one finally. Think what ya want dearie. Now I’m going to put some shit in it and if it all does go sideways at least I’m not going to have to worried about eating for a couple of weeks if we have to self quarantine.
Since she only knows how to shop for one week at a time I am going around her, again, because I have to.
She can’t see past the end of her Soap Opera.
I been hungry before.
Hungry and not knowing where the next meal is coming from.
More than once.
That tends to make an impression on ya.
