my mate is a hospital surgeon - folk are now bringing in scissors to nick the anti-bac hand solutions as they had to zip tie them down. 

 

Takes a special type of ***** to steal from a hospital - they should use crimes like that as a cull. Just pop them in the sea about 3 miles off shore, job done. 

 

There are some real despicable barstwards about, yet if they get sick they'll be the first to expect to get treatment.

 

But there has always been different kinds of people, as we are seeing now, some are IMO spineless selfish panic merchants who run from shop to shop grabbing every packet of pasta/rice, tins of food, toiletries etc etc etc that they can find, I've even heard from multiple sources that there are cases of people travelling many miles and virtually cleaning out small little village stores of near enough everything, feck those old folks who rely on that village store for their supplies, no as long as the me me me twats get what they want, then feck everybody else.

 

And then you have people who are volunteering to work and treat coronavirus patients, can you imagine that, it must take a special kind of person who willingly puts their own lives at risk, all because they want to help people, including helping the very same spineless selfish me me me twats, who will recieve the same care and attention that would be given to the rest of us.

 

Heroes, well I know who the real heroes are, and it certainly isn't the me me me selfish twats.

Every Tesco in Dundee has absolutely no toilet rolls, soap, pasta, rice, beans, soup, tinned vegetables, or tea (amongst other things), and it has been like this for over a week.  Additionally, last night there was no meat at all.

 

No one is admitting to panic buying, but everyone seems to be doing it.  A small number of people are doing the "buying 36 tins of beans and 240 toilet rolls" thing which is ridiculous, but normal people are picking up things they wouldn't usually buy, or when things are coming back into stock, they're taking 2 or 3 of them because they will be out of stock soon.  It's a natural reaction to things being in short supply/high demand, but people need to stop ****ing panicking and engage their brains before lifting more than necessary, because it's ruining it for everyone.  That sort of needless small-scale stocking up is exactly what is causing the problems with stock in shops.   You don't need to buy 3 boxes of 80 teabags, you only need 1.  You don't need to buy 4 bags of pasta, you only need 1.

 

It's making every day shopping a ****ing nightmare.  I really fancied making a lasagna last night, but when I got down to the shops, there was no mince, no onions, no lasagna sheets, no cheese, no tinned tomatoes, and no milk.  I ended up having sausages stuffed into a pitta bread, because it was about the only things that were left.

 

P.S - to the woman in Home Bargains the other day, who ran their arm along the shelves and swept the best part of 20 Carex handwashes into your trolley, I hope your next shite is a particularly jaggy hedgehog, and I hope you have no toilet roll to deal with it.

I'm starting to think that some people are panic buying for the sake of panic buying, they must be in full on panic mode.

 

 

THIS!

 

I was in the shop in St Andrews earlier, and picked up 3 packets of Chestnut Mushrooms to throw in the soup maker later.  Immediately, 2 old women in the same aisle scuttled over and hurriedly picked up 2 packets each, and someone else came over and picked up a packet as well.

 

What the actual **** is going on in people's minds that they see someone pick up a few things and assume they have to have them all too!

 

I might go back, and start quickly filling a basket with things like Anusol and other random things, to see if I can get people to pick them up too :lol:

I got a full weeks shop, including bog roll, from Iceland today. Sadly couldn't pick up many of the things I probably usually would pick up but have just had to change a few things. They even had pasta!

 

Much better than the local Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury's that have been picked apart. I believe the panic buyers are still a bit up themselves.

Next door neighbour told me that a staff member at a Sainsbury's store told him, that a woman with 14x 12 pack of toilet rolls was stopped at the check-out and told to put some back, the woman refused so the check-out assistant called her supervisor who then called the manager when the woman started to lose the head, the manager and a security guard took 12 of the packs out of her trolly, which left her with 2 packs (24 rolls in all), the woman was going mental, manager told her if she didn't calm down he'd call the police and she'd end up getting no toilet paper at all, she left with the 2 packs.

 

Hearing on the news that Tesco is to introduce a limit of 3 on any one item and I'm sure I heard them say that they were closing all stores at 10pm as well.

They're getting round that 3 item limit easily, and it's not being enforced by the self-service checkouts which most people are using.  Was speaking to the woman in St Andrews Tesco earlier.  They open at 6am, and people have been queuing to get in at opening time, and heading straight for the pasta, toilet rolls, and tinned stuff that is stocked at night after they close.  It's all gone by 7am, and she reckons that a lot of the faces are the same every morning, which doesn't surprise me in the slightest.  Going in every day and buying more of the stuff they already have, leaving none for anyone else.

 

The few ruining it for the many.

Would be delighted if they started refusing to serve anyone who tried to mass buy a load of any particular product and banning them from the store.

Ink stamps on the back of their hands, like clubs used to do, and make the ink last for 3 days, that'll sort the barstewards out.

I was in Tesco earlier at Eskbank. I only wanted a few things. This was about 11am and last night was the first night they closed overnight to re-stock the shelves. It was even emptier than the other day.

 

One pack of mince left and one tin of beans. No tissues, pasta, bog roll etc. Cereal very depleted, no tins of tomatoes, freezer sections looking bare, only tinned peas left. It's ridiculous.

 

Utter dicks.

Just heard from a mate that in Denmark there is no limit on anything you want to buy : caveat

1st item priced as normal , 2nd &  subsequent items are priced stratospherically high to deter hoarding.

And the myth that the public will all overcome this by sticking together, with “the spirit of The Blitz”, has been peddled constantly by the government.

Too many people are only interested in themselves. They’ll be paying for the food they’ve piled into their homes on their credit card, for months, along with the interest. 
I’ve been told that sales of freezers have increased substantially, so they can be filled up too.

A situation like this exposes the selfish and the insecure copycats big time.

Needed spaghetti, my daughters favourite food.  Also wanted some veg, one of which was onions. Went to Lidl, it was like a fight had broke out and someone stole everything. Bits of packaging and damaged goods on the shelves. No spaghetti or onions. Did get peppers and mushrooms though. 

OK, Morrisons is round the corner. A bit more stuff on the shelves but no spaghetti. I noticed that the crisp aisle was almost empty too. 

Next stop Tesco. Plenty of fruit. Loads and loads of empty shelves. No spaghetti.

Local Co-op was next. 3 packets of wholegrain spaghetti. Woohoo. My daughter hasnt tried the wholegrain stuff so I bought one. Left the other two in case some other poor bugger is on a spaghetti hunt. 

 

What puts the fear in me is that 45% of the food in the UK is imported. With many nations being on lock down I think it will only be a matter of time before there are genuine supply issues. 

 

I now wish I had bought the tin of mushrooms that I saw at Lidls......

Wife and I popped into Tesco earlier today about 2.30pm, she wanted to pick some things up for Mother’s Day. While we were there were planning to get a few things we needed but most of the shelves were empty. No bog roll. No soap. Barely any tins. Hardly any fruit/veg. I just said let’s get the stuff we need for your mum and go.

 

While waiting at the tills there was two woman together and she must’ve had about 8 bags of apples. The check out assistant only allowed her two, but I’m struggling to understand the thought process of these people. We got chatting to the bloke on the till and he said it’s the same people coming a couple of times a day to fill their trolleys. Idiots.

 

I hope they get a lot stricter with the measures. Banning orders for supermarkets should become the new norm for these sorts.

It's the people leaving fresh/frozen food wherever they please for it to spoil that where pissing me off today. So much unnecessary waste. 

 

I believe there will be much more strict measures coming into force on Friday. Already have people freaking out that they can't buy more than a couple tins of soup ffs.

I just tend to eat the same things most days so the 3 item limit is going to be a bit of a pain. 

 

You could say I stockpile items week in, week out but in reality I'm only buying food for the next 5-7 days. Oh well. Guess I'll have to get creative with what I'm cooking.

I know a few people who are either vegan or just very healthy and they are a bit stuffed with the lack of fresh veg in shops. Obviously they can eat but not what they’re used to and some of them are a bit snooty about tinned food and so on. I have no such qualms.

A little Devil's advocatey here, and certainly not wishing to condone any arseholey, serial hoarding behaviour...but could some of othe purchasers of multiple items simply be folk who wish to avoid going into a crowded shop every day?

 

In normal circumstances either me or my Mrs would be in our Tesco near enough daily as it's on the road home. Neither of us been in since Monday.
