If you get sick official advice is while there is no treatment, mitigate symptoms with paracetamol.

Best of luck finding any of that. Supplies should have started being protected two months ago.

 

I noticed plenty of it in Sainsbury the other day and the wife noticed loads in Morrisons in the Gyle yesterday so hopefully there is enough now getting through to the stores.

Wife heard a few story's from work colleagues yesterday, who have family or friends who work in supermarkets.

 

The general consensus seems to be that a lot of people are out of control, they're behaving like animals, in fact animals are better behaved.

 

Don't know where this happened, but a old man was wandering around a supermarket trying to get a few odds and ends, well he had a 4 pack of bog roll in his trolley, he turned around to look at something on a shelf and when he turned back around somebody had nicked his bog roll out of his trolley.

Words fail me, how low can someone get to do that.

Fortunately there a lot more decent people in the world.

I think that’s a fair assessment. The filth grab the headlines but most people are honest and decent.

I saw an older lady in tears because the vultures down beside me had stripped the shelves bare of all toiletries. I asked a staff member to pinch a bog roll from staff toilet to help her. Respect to Sainsburys  staff. Good customer service albeit not quite as good as mine from when I worked in a supermarket 😛

Plenty onions, leeks, carrot, celery etc. No turnips but got some diced swede. Decent stock, salt and pepper, pearl barley and dried peas. 
 

It’s been in the slow cooker for an hour. Smells fantastic already.

 

Will turn it off overnight and back on tomorrow. 
 

Crusty bread wit butter. Barry.

Just popped into Tesco on way home from work just as it opened 6am, 2 full pallets of bog roll in 16 and 9 packs took 5 min walk round shop buying other stuff first due to bulk of bog roll went back last item 80% were gone in 5 or 6  mins store was quiet but every customer (me included) was buying some. I know the stocks will recover within a month but whilst empty shelves are seen it creates panic.

Marge and butter gone, only a few high price anti cholesterol ones left.

No cheese in block form at all.

Tins still less every day.

and with real threat of shut down later today shops will be ravaged to bones.

Selfish pricks do not think about the people who are working still keeping the country going. I’m worried more about the behaviour of this lot than any damage the virus will do.

Not sure where you are but in Musselburgh many of the local grocery shops, newsagents etc have toilet roll and kitchen roll in. I obviously don’t know if this is the same in other areas.

Family friend who works in one of the supermarkets in straiton park. 

 

She shared that customers are regularly swearing at staff and being pretty aggressive. 

 

I also heard tescos at hardengreen now closes at night but folks are queuing up to get in.. but a lot of them are the same people from the morning before and are just baying the same sh*t. 

 

There are truly some horrible people living in Scotland.

Not a month. If people stopped buying today... Stock levels would return in less than a week.

Normally only 1 security guard on at Tesco when I pop in after work early doors, today there were 3 on duty including 1 at door.

Never understood the anger thrown at people just doing a job who have zero responsibility for issue/s at hand.

I love to vent as much as anyone but gotta be the guilty buggers like hoarders etc.

Just been in, there toilet roll but still folks buying more than they need. Woman baying two packs of 9. So let's say she has a big family and they go through a roll a day... that's still 18 days worth... is that her till 18 days in the house? Is it #$%@. But then again, maybe she was buying for someone else.. 🤔

 

 

Picture won't load but the bread section is full... over stocked one might say... all those idiots buying so much have been proven idiots..

Wouldn't surprise me some have maxed out their credit cards in the process, some might even still be paying for all the extra food and bog roll for the next 5 years or longer.

Make your toilet paper last longer by making sure you use both sides of the sheet.   You will be washing your hands thoroughly anyway  .   .   .   .    won't you?  ;) 

 

I remember this ditty from my youth:

 

In days of old when Knights were bold and paper wasn't invented,

they wiped their bum with finger and thumb and went home quite contented.

Why the rush for toilet roll anyway?  It's not like it's a necessity, if I ran out of paper I would just jump in the shower and wash my arsehole out with my hand and shower gel.  Hardly a big deal.

Ah right, i've experienced the same golf idiot with the same kinda wife. 

It's starting to get predictable now. 

This boy was raging about not being able to play golf and told me he would be hitting balls at his neighbours windows if he couldn't.
