My entire news feed is populated with food and fuel scarcity articles, supply chain issues and a labour shortage.
When will people realize that this is called fear mongering?
Seriously, I’m losing my patience with this bullshit.
Simultaneously I see how the pandemic-ized economy impacts our budgets, especially when it comes to food. The prices have skyrocketed… And the result is not pretty.
Many people have less, go hungry or pass on adequate medical assistance due to lack of income or funds. I see this at Value Village, a place I take my teen girl who enjoys buying second-hand clothing she can alter herself – the store is usually packed (as much as one can pack a store with covid restrictions). It didn’t used to be packed…
However, it’s not all doom and gloom.

Question: did you buy one of those giant sacks of flour when the sourdough tizzy began in March 2020? I read in multiple places that people still have flour left from that purchase today.
What about toilet paper? Are you wiping your ass with colourful fall leaves these days?
I’m just saying … Get a grip.
