I am seeing a lot of chatter on twitter that there are likely food shortages on the horizon. Anyone else heard anything about this?

Haven’t heard anything, but last summer when they happened our grocery stores got hit. Wasn’t crippling, but did suck.

I thought this was a bumped thread from last year.

I also haven’t heard or seen anything. But there was something on the news about possible gas shortages because of lack of truck drivers.

I haven’t crossed over to the bidet yet in Europe. I’d be lying if I didn’t have some fear of it.

I've seen shortages here and there of different things.  Went to the grocery and not a single strawberry in sight a couple weeks ago.

Spending a long period in Europe is how I started.  I too was afraid.  The older I got, though, the more I didn't feel "clean" after doing my duty.  So I bought a Tushy - which is just one of those cheap plastic bidets you attach to your existing toilet.  I got it in December of last year.  Now I can say I will never not have one.  The feeling of cleanliness is something I will never give up.  

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have always been a little weird about being clean (lots of showers).  So I don't know if I'm a typical user.  But I gotta think for most people, once you go down that road, going back to rubbing the area with dry paper or even smearing it with a wipe will never be acceptable again.

This time last year they threw out a meat shortage and since tp shortage was real I went and stocked up that eve....never happened though.


Everyone has that extra cash....not much hunger out there for sure and drive thru lines are impossible 

All school breakfasts and lunches are free and sending huge boxes of food home to these same families every Friday.....gonna serve food during summer.


There is food somewhere but some shortages will happen. I heard 10 years ago chicken wings and that sort would run out and when thinking about the volume of that hard to believe it hadn’t happened.


CDL sites closed or not enough workers so hearing that is a key cog but doesn’t seem legit reason.

$4 gas and low food supply....we’ll see
