Shopping in this Pandemic. What you need to know about the Larger Supermarkets

I feel Like a nagging wife, but im going to say this again!! “STOP PANIC BUYING”. I want to swear but im going to keep it clean. So for all of you that are reading the blog, its up to you to educate the fools (oops) around us! If the country goes into Lockdown, shops and chemist will still be open! we can still get our supplies. Right now at a time when we need to help each other, we are creating a moral panic, And the ones loosing out are the elderly! The ELDERLY people, the same people who shouldnt be going out from one shop to another looking for damn bog roll!!! But you panic buying fools are putting these peoples lives at risk!!
