They must have gone to Aldi, my son in law worked at Aldi today and said it was crazy all day.


Wasn't much stock left apparently, hence why it was quiet.

Although people have a misconception that supermarkets get fully stocked overnight, one of his work mates filmed people charging in an opening time straight to the toilet paper isle only for it to be empty :lol:

Wouldn't mind being the bloke who invented hand sanitizer.

I noticed none of the recovered dots were infected again, is it right that once you have had it you cant get re-infected, or at least have a lowered risk?

We don't really know enough about it yet to be 100% definitive on this answer.

State of Emergency called in Victoria, not really sure what that means to be honest. Other than those tested positive subject to fines if the break self isolation. I’m having today off of work (booked it weeks ago) believing I needed to recover from a day of revellering at the GP. Currently in the beer garden of my local sipping on a Carlton Draught awaiting my Parma!

Had a parent send their kids to school today even though they have been tested for Coronavirus and haven't got the results back...

The school directors sent them straight back home...

The parent works in the medical/health field...

Not that smart I reckon...

I could be the first non-sales person to be asked to work from home, upper management are discussing it as my role is considered business critical and they don't want me to get sick.

I look forward to the outcome.

Went to drakes old reynella yesterday arvo. Normally very quiet on a Sunday.
People wandering around like zombies looking for supplies.
The joint had been cleaned out, I couldn't believe it!
Girl at the checkout said it was nuts as soon as they opened.
People couldn't online shop at woolies cause they had no stock.
Absolute madness!

Mawson Lakes Woolies has THREE (3) boxes of Peppa Pig training wipes on the shelf! Hurry in; it was there 20 minutes ago but who knows how long they will last!

I don't have a computer at home, I sit at one all day, I don't want to do it at night.

Boss has been and got me a laptop, IT guy in Melbourne is setting it up so I can get on the server now, we're thinking one of us stays home to avoid any issues and if the other one gets it we can tag in.

I have two lappies, one stays at home permanently so I can alter production schedules if there's breakdowns after hours, I'm not sure where it is though atm as it's been a while since I've used it, I generally have enough work ready to go if they need to change things about.

I don't really think staying home would work though as I need to print heaps of crap off so someone would have to collate it all, plus I'd struggle to stay home, there'd be more chance of me getting sick there than being stuck in an office all day.

Have you tried Specialty Foods?

Thighs are way better anyway, far more versatile and better eating.
