Are you a Preppie?
Have you stockpiled on anything?

I haven't, but I've been amazed at what I see in our local supermarkets.

There has been no hand sanitiser for weeks, bog roll goes out the door as soon as the shelves fill.

I went to Aldi today and all sheves are full. So maybe poorer people can't afford to stockpile.

I've always kept about a month's worth of reserves in my home; the only exception being when I'm moving out/to another country.

I keep my freezer well stocked, even though I'm never far from a source of fresh food. It all gets used up within 3 months and replaced with fresher stuff, which is then frozen down.

That, in itself is now probably "old hat" given the ease of ordering stuff on-line and having it delivered.

No never went to a prep school. But I am a stockpiler of fish fingers and beans.

I agree, but you cannot account for the thousands of idiots who think the world is coming to an end. These are the same idiots who panic buy during a bit of snow! (I haven't been panic buying).

Re: Are you a Preppie?
stockpiling of bog roll is nothing to do with this virus not giving you the shits, people are panicking that the Government will lock down areas for 3+ weeks meaning no one can get out to do a shop. Although you can have it delivered and left on the doorstep there still aren't enough hours in the day to ensure every household can tick over. Hence the panic buying of bog roll and other non perishable items now.

Queens Fish Bar 1:14 Mon Mar 9
Re: Are you a Preppie?
My stockpiling is:
- Spiced rum
- Cocaine
- Weed

Re: Are you a Preppie?
On friday evening I went to do my weekly big shop at the local Sainsbury's and discovered that it had been absolutely blitzed due to all the shiteaters paying far too much attention to the coronavirus panic. I've never seen a supermarkets shelves looking so barren in my life.

An entire aisle of loo roll - despite the fact that it's a respiratory virus and has nothing to do with the shits. No bathroom/kitchen products either. All the toothpaste and mouthwash too.
Pasta and biscuits aisle all empty as well.

It's something to keep an eye on and be concerned about but this very petit bourgeoise in lower case letters and blind panic fuelled by cowardice and fear and ignorance really turns my stomach.

Right there is a proper reason for buying some extra toilet paper.

Remember Folks!!! It's ALL bullshit folks and it's BAD for ya

Re: Are you a Preppie?
Isn't having enough food and assorted domestic consumables to last you a week or two literally just normal?

Freezer full of meat and veg, tinned stuff in the cupboards, and a load of bogroll and toothpaste.

I mean if you went round someone's house and they DIDN'T have the above that would be more unusual than having it, no?

Haha! If you're in rural America and you've got a cough, whatever you do, don't go outside. You'll more than likely get shot.

Re: Are you a Preppie?
We were quite annoyed that all the Ocado slots for this weekend had been taken by Thurs.

Might have to resort to actual shopping by trolley!

Re: Are you a Preppie?
I would say Prepper

For me, a preppy/preppie is one of the stereo-typical groups you would have at school alongside jocks, stoners, nerds.... (Ferris Buehler's give a pretty good list in one of the scenes..."They all think he is a righteous dude")

Short for someone who should be at a preparatory school - think sweater tied around the neck, collared shirts under v- neck etc. Like a school uniform but on purpose.


Anyway, we were what would be called preppers now, when we were growing up to an extent, 10 gallon buckets of honey and wheat in storage, lots of canning, root cellar for produce from garden etc.

No time or space now.
