I may have called 999 because there was only wholemeal bread down the corner shop, i realise now it may have been an over reaction .
Hotel workers will get the 80%guarantee from government.Just out of interest, how are they going to be compensated for the loss of trade?
Another question - if the islands depend on ferries and stuff bringing supplies, what happens if ferries cannot operate due to staff falling ill? Larger islands might be self sufficient in terms of food, but what about other things?
Yup. A single roll lasts me three or four weeks. I shit twice, maybe three times a week due to a metabolism fucked by the military and a year in the Antarctic.I was talking to one of the engineers yesterday who is based in Dublin, who services one of the instruments I look after. He says that the panic buying more or less stopped some while ago as people realised that the supply line hadn't broken.
With regard to toilet roll specifically, Mrs Pvivax and I are both NHS,I'm laboratory (Haematology)and she is nuclear medicine. In her case she is totally patient facing ,whereas I currently am not. We took the decision 10 days or so ago to self isolate from each other as she owns a property in her own right and that my usefulness to the NHS in this current situation trumps hers. I have been living alone for nearly two weeks. I loaded a new roll on saturday morning I have barely used a quarter (notwithstanding the one crap I've had in work this week) @Drlligaf our calculations would appear to be close enough. As I've said in another post ,people are greatly overestimating their requirements.
I wrote before about our Boots equivalent selling out of bogroll, while the SPAR round the corner had plenty.Local walking distance Co Op yesterday - virtually empty - nothing of any use left. Drove to Sainsburys today and got everything I was told that we needed for the weekly shop, I suspect this is down to the two brands relative logistics operational ability.

Our local CoOp has restricted it's hours from 06:00-23:00 to 08:00-19:00 so that they get get stocked up for the following day, yet everytime I walk past at 05:30 on my way to the station, the shelves are empty. Their delivery slot is an afternoon slot.Same around here. Oddly an arrse mentioned last week the his local CoOp had their shelves full of stuff.Regional variations I suppose?
Just been to our village Co-op (well, at 08:00) - not much of anything worth having, even though the short artic' was there yesterday afternoon.Same around here. Oddly an arrse mentioned last week the his local CoOp had their shelves full of stuff.Regional variations I suppose?
When I'm at sea it's once a week. Always on a Thursday for some reason.Yup. A single roll lasts me three or four weeks. I shit twice, maybe three times a week due to a metabolism fucked by the military and a year in the Antarctic.
I can't believe how colleagues can go through a roll in two days.
One can only hope he is given good reason to referMaster Fang works in a Tesco.
He has been redeployed from fruit and vegetables to Social Distancing Coordinator.
The fact that he is a six foot front row forward is coincidental.
Quite. Which is why it does not work locally.Their "granny and NHS" hour is 09:30-10:30. They open at 07:00. One presumes the village locusts (and scavenging cunts from town) are at the door when it opens and clearing the place out. That or the lazy bastard staff aren't moving the stock from backroom to shelves with much vigour. They're shutting at 20:00 precisely to give the staff two hours to restock for the morning before they knock off at the normal closing time of 22:00, too.
