Or go out to eat and tip a few waiters and waitresses crazy tips.  Or go buy something you don't need at a local small business and give it to someone who does need it.

Or do a thousand dollar panic run on the grocery store. I just walked to the grocery store for exercise. Everything I wanted is available including stuff I thought I would have to return at 6am before the hoarders. Either people are running out of money to spend, are afraid to spend more than necessary or America is running out of kitchen shelf space. 

American scenarios I have in mind based on what I’ve seen in stores ...

Next year at the dinner table, “Eat up! We have 56 boxes of pasta to go.

OR

Eat your canned beans! Otherwise we will never go through 200 rolls of toilet paper.

A thousand squares of toilet paper on the wall, a thousand squares on a roll. You take one down, pass it around, 999 squares of toilet paper on the wall.

😁

Still nothing in the stores here.  No water, toilet paper, meat, cereal, eggs, or bread.  That part is crazy. 

The latest from Texas.

Our stores are stocked pretty good in and around Houston.  You can find a pictures on facebook of empty shelves, but they get restocked pretty fast. You may want the Old El Paso Stand and Stuff Doritos taco shells and they are sold out, but you can get the regular 10-pack of taco shells and get by for another day.

FWIW, in suburban Atlanta various ethnic markets around us appear to be better stocked for staples than the big chain grocery stores, and less crowded, too.

I called corporate of the couple of grocery stores I shop. One is a regional corporation. One is a national corporation. I was told what I expected. There isn’t a food supply shortage. It’s just a matter of getting shelves restocked. They advised I shop early in the morning. 

I spoke with the Nabisco rep in an aisle. He’s restocking the Nabisco shelves himself at his accounts to make sure product isn’t sitting on pallets out back. He said the only issue is the next delivery truck arriving. There’s plenty of food.

JMO but the NCAA cares about 2 things, hoops and football.  It should be interesting to see what they come up with.

Agree.  We must remember simple logic, whoever generates the revenue controls the decisions.
