.Every time my husband goes online, I am hearing him shouting about something not being available. To be quite honest, I’m tired of hearing about shortages. Started out as shortages of toilet tissue and paper towels when the pandemic first began. My own cousin had one room that was filled with toilet tissue, paper towels, tissues, and hand sanitizer. I thought it was ludicrous, but it was his decision to fill that room. Lately it has been shortages in just about anything, and it is even been affecting restaurants which causes their menus to always be lacking something. Personally, I am over it all. The pandemic is winding down, and there’s some normalcy. Why people are going back to work, I’m not sure. I can even understand how people can afford to decide not to go back to work now that the jobs are opening. I’m sure that even the construction companies have their shortages going on. Last week, I was in the hardware store and I heard a gentleman asking about stainless double loop ties. It even before came out of the man’s mouth, I knew that someone was going to say that they were out. I was glad that his explanation for being out of stainless double loop ties would be better than just say that there’s a shortage. He explained that one of the local farmers had come in earlier that day and bought the last two roles of stainless double loop ties they had in their inventory. If he could wait until the following day, and they had 12 more stainless double loop type coils coming in on the AM truck.
