To avoid the crowds, I went to our local supermarket at 7 this morning. It’s not a small store, has always been well stocked, and is even advertising for employees. But I found that they were out of—or had limits on—many items. Here are some photos I took:
A real case of the Grocer’s Apostrophe:
Seriously, a limit on canned goods?
Where’s the beef?
I’m mystified why the benighted are buying bottled water:
The toilet paper section, bereft of bogroll. Water and t.p. are the items most hoarded.
Obviously, people are staying home and making popcorn (they’re also low on chips):
A limit on eggs and milk:
Even cereal is in low supply!
Fortunately, my food needs are minimal now, and I have enough wine to last me for years. I’m also well stocked with bogroll due to a buying error several months ago.
Good luck, friends!
