Panic Buyers
#1
Just got back in from shopping and it has started once again, folks are panic buying, people are sensing that something big is coming perhaps, we saw a lady in Lidl tonight trying to buy several packs of toilet roll and was refused more than two packs, she made such a commotion you would think they were not making any more.

The recent round a -bout of lockdowns is having the expected effects and people are gearing up for a run on commodities all around these parts, TPTB truly know how to manipulate the paraigm don't they.

Has anyone else noticed any trends upon these lines?

yes, we noticed it in Costco on Monday, the great toilet roll panic had returned, but thankfully, Costco had placed a limit of 1 pack, which is still 45 rolls ffs.
People are pre-empting a second lockdown I think, and panic buying now.
I noticed a lot of out of stocks in the pasta and cereal aisle yesterday in Sainsburys near me.
I still cannot get my head around the toilet roll stashing, but sadly the madness will only get worse due the media over-hyping the increase in cases and local lockdowns.

Can you imagine what it will be like at Xmas???

The early signs of neigbours stealing from others has surfaced, several of our local cottages in our tiny square have been bought up already, of the ten houses only two remain actual locals, the rest are owned by people from mid and South country, some have two houses here and are preparing to get out of dodge as the saying goes.

There is an urgency with a few of our close freinds to begin planting their own gardens and the local farmers are not leaving their wintering stock animals too far away from their home base.

Xmas is going to be a lockdown I reckon, to push people over the edge, TPTB are truly going for broke on this one, what on earth have the cabal got over on them, in their little black book, mind boggles.

I have never seen a small closely knit community so divided as right now.
