  1. Now that you mention it, my trash was also way down this week. We usually have 4-5 bags in our can. This week we only had 2.
  2. Maybe I'm not taking the groceries as seriously as I should. I put gloves on entering the store and throw them out when leaving. I usually pick items off the shelf that are as far back as possible. Haven't sprayed/wiped any food down after arriving home though.
  3. I feel like people in my area have been really good staying home. The roads are freaking empty around me.
  4. I figured it was something like that. I'll have to check other stores.
  5. "This strategy is called "de-densifying" and the company hopes will turn its fortunes around." Guess they finally realized they have way too many Gamestops in some areas. I have 7 Gamestops within 8 miles of my house.
  6. My grocery store fucking tripled the price of eggs from this time last week. For months it was $0.99 for a dozen eggs. Now it's $2.99.
  7. Income is going to become a concern for me by the end of April so today I've just been stressing about everything. A few weeks ago ago I thought we would be through a lot of this but it seems it's really only beginning. Seriously, at the rate things are slowly getting worse I don't feel like people will be back to work until May/June if we're lucky.
  8. I know i'm going to be hurting on money by the end of April. My wife had her last day at the preschool. They are run by a church so may not qualify for unemployment. They are looking into the small business loan/grant thing that's been in the news so they might be able to continue to pay employees. I'm self employed so i might have to look into that too.
  9. So my dad just heard from a customer of ours. This customer has a neighbor. The neighbor got back from a New Orleans vacation a few weeks ago. She just tested positive for coronavirus. She had been working her day job at a pharmacy inside a grocery store the last 2 weeks...
  10. Reading about the ventilators was scary. How they might have to turn them up so high just to keep you alive that the ventilator can cause permanent damage to the lungs.
  11. The Giantbomb video for this game wasn't the greatest. But I got a lot of enjoyment out of watching Jeff carry around a rat.
  12. The cemetery by my house has a new sign along the road. "30% off select plots". I thought what great timing!
  13. That sounds rough man, sorry to hear that. I'm just drawing a total blank on everything going on right now. I've always been good at estimating things in my head, like how long things last or what could happen. This is moving so quick day to day I can't keep up. A week or two ago the big news was "Do you think E3 is going to happen??".
  14. The local hobby store around the corner from me was boarding up their store tonight. Just bought my son a sweet r/c truck there about 3 weeks ago.
  15. Shit I didn't even think of that. They could ignite this thing even more in 2 weeks when symptoms have kicked in.
  16. I could imagine city areas being slammed right now. Parents working and kids gaming and streaming non stop.
  17. We got a fresh box of 120 Crayola crayons and a ton of coloring books at my house.
  18. In my area, places that SFLUFAN mentioned will remain open along with places like Home Depot/Lowes. They sell stuff that is considered essential.
  19. A group of friends spent 25 days rafting in the Grand Canyon with no outside contact — and returned to find the world in the midst of a 'disorienting' pandemic https://www.insider.com/grand-canyon-rafters-didnt-know-coronavirus-extent-for-25-days-2020-3
  20. I was feeling better about stuff the last 2 days because for whatever reason I avoided coronavirus news. I feel the doom and gloom settling in again tonight
  21. I will probably hold off as well. I just bought RE2 on a nice psn sale. I doubt the multiplayer is going to be super amazing so I probably won't miss much by waiting 6 months to get it half off.
  22. So my wife wouldn't be able to collect unemployment from her job and I'm self employed. I'm pretty sure my job isn't on the governors list of businesses that have to close. If I couldnt work I would be pretty fucked right now.
