It’s hot
For some supermarket owners, it’s like Christmas is here already with the sudden hike in sales. It is unprecedented. Out of the blue. The owners will understandably hide their glee lest they be accused of exploitation.
Bad example
They stress on us social distancing but they stand, sit close together during media conferences. One rule for them and one for us?
New word
The latest word invented is covidiot. It’s a noun meaning a stupid person who stubbornly ignores social distancing and hoards groceries for no reason.
Grocery snatchers
Grocery snatchers are those who “mindlessly empty supermarket shelves of things they don’t need, for reasons they cannot explain”.
Cops fighting
A brawl broke out among a few policewomen over the killing of a dog at the Gordon police barracks female quarters. Inspector Robert Wane says a female officer is in custody for starting the fight. Must be the coronavirus-associated stress.
Crimes suspension
A police station commander put out this notice: Due to the coronavirus, the station commander is asking that all criminal activities cease forthwith. We thank you in advance. We will advise when it is safe to venture out again.
Pilot speaking
“This is your pilot speaking. I am operating from home today.”
Tell us
Mobile phone companies should have the courtesy of alerting customers if something is wrong with the network which means they cannot access the internet. Don’t leave them in the dark.
Thought for today
Noah took only two of everything when he went onto the ark. Remember that when you go shopping.
