Every time I go the store I want to kick a horders ASS

Same thing yesterday,no toilet paper on a 50 foot long isle with several shelves. No napkins or any paper products,just a few paper plates stacked up. Looks like NOW Walmart is getting tough and telling them only one roll. Should have done that weeks ago. Lady at the counter said peeps are lining up before the 7:30am opening and cleaning the re-stocked shelf out in just minutes. Noticed a couple of security guys in the store yesterday.

Bread isle was sparse but there was bread to be had--limit of one loaf.

1. My husband couldn't find a gas can anywhere.

He went to 4 stores. The last one was O’Reilly’s where the clerk told him that they had 11 of them but some woman came in 10 minutes ago and bought them all.

2. I know they were limiting it to one pack at my Kroger store

Panic begets more panic.

I think it'll be okay soon.

3. I've given up on getting TP.

I've only been able to get late afternoon slots for delivery. Everything is pretty much either gone or substituted. Last order, no ground beef, no TP and disinfectants of any kind.

4. Understanding what's happening better and that unconscionable

"hoarding" has almost nothing to do with the shortages aggravating you should make you feel better. Maybe read about supply chain and demand issues. I have and haven't yet had an impulse to kick anyone over empty shelves. I do all too frequently want to take a stick to trumpsters, but that's a different issue. They really ARE unconscionable.

On the demand side, 130 MILLION households suddenly informed they will all have to go into lock-up at home and thus dutifully stocking up of course resulted in emptied shelves. Happily, that huge national task seems to be mostly completed, and most people are settling into normal replenishing.

5. You do understand

That there are MILLIONS of people at home where they would normally be at school and/or work. People do need stuff

6. I have a friend who did domestic help to a wealthy person out West

187 multi 12 packs of tp in their 2 person household before they let her go
How does she know? One of her last jobs was to inventory on paper all their stocked hoards
and make a graph for them to check off
Did they offer anythng to her family when they let her go earlier this month ? Yes to be fair they gave her 2 week’s average hours salary and said they will call her when they feel safe but no tp or foods
They are not for selling just some kind of messed up security blanket

I really do not get the water buying but I am in another part of the country so can’t comment

7. I've been real lucky so far.

Yesterday evening, the store six blocks around the corner just delivered
all the fresh produce I ordered, including eggs and butter.

I hope it stays this way.
