Right as the open unless your store has “seniors hours.” Those MFs buy all the TP and bleach and “hoard them” to themselves. Paraphrasing conversations I’ve overheard when going in for other things early on

You should wait for your government allocated portion of the toilet paper supply to be delivered to the FEMA shelter and then check for your allocated spot in line.

I’ve been driving out to the suburbs to do my grocery shopping. Lots of TP there

When stores open so like 7 or 8am but I went to target at like 8:45(I know cause they close at 9 and I was rushing) and they still had a few giant ones left.

First thinf in the morning. Where do you live? Local smaller stores seem to be better stocked.

Ask the store. Didn’t things come and are stocked at different times throughout the day.

I went around noon today for fresh veggies and saw there was toilet paper.

Yesterday an associate I work with on a big case asked me if I was available to join an hour-long call with reviewers that I usually don’t join. I said yes, assuming maybe she just wanted me there in case questions came up that I might be able to help answer. She starts the call and immediately tells the team of reviewers (25+) that this week I am “leading the call to talk about [topic].” The topic is not in my bailiwick on the case. I’m pissed she put me on the spot like that.

Just found out that my girlfriend that I have been dating for 6 years cheated on me after going through her phone while she was asleep. She was always super suspicious of me cheating and would constantly tell me about dreams she had where I cheated on her. I’ve heard that type of behavior can be someone projecting their own insecurities so i was suspicious. When I bring up the cheating, do I explain that I literally looked through her texts or so I not mention me going through her phone at all?

By now, nearly every CEO of a major company has made some public statement or proclamation of their commitment to racial equality, diversity, and such matters. What percent of those do you believe truly comes from the heart and a bias for both personal and corporate action, versus a necessary public relations response with little personal ownership? My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.

The job was virtual and I worked there for about a year, never really developed strong connections with anybody on the team so I wasn’t planning on going tomorrow.
