Walmart During an Epidemic
Monday, March 16, 2020
Obviously nobody is washing dishes at home because they are buying paper plates.
One of the many random couples buying water and a bunch of paper goods. I started wondering if everyone expected the faucets to break or their wells to dry up. I never buy any bottled water because the water in my kitchen is fine.
I think my biggest surprise was the shelves of pasta sauce. I guess if people think they might get quarantined then they will be eating lots of pasta while they are stuck home.
Of course because of the news, hand soap was hard to find. I got one container of hand wash and one bottle of shampoo. Actually the shelves had quite a variety of shampoo still lined up. I guess people weren't worried about having clean hair.
Eggs were running low, but I was able to grab 2 dozen, along with some yogurt, shredded cheese, cream cheese, coconut milk and almond milk. I was glad to also grab some pork rinds and guacamole.
See I don't get to walk around in a store to shop that often, so I just needed to pick up stuff that I can't order online. Besides I was in a hurry to get out of that madhouse...people were getting crazy.
Our general manager said that it will be our last big employee shopping trip until after this coronavirus epidemic is over. Oh thank God for online shopping. I will just order my coffee from Amazon.
