    Blimey! How much were they?
    I got some Wahl clippers and they were £15.

    Some of these, but as said I paid double for them at the time. Got scalped, in many ways.

    No, fair enough. I know many products were very thin on the ground and consequently prices rose.

    Yep they were all at it, price of hand gel in April was ridiculous. Still we're surreptitiously buying up some reserves of non perishables in case the worst happens.

    Our local Sainsbury's was a sad sight back in March/April/May the shelves stripped bare everyday. Used to annoy the hell out of me as people were clearly hoarding more than they needed, throwing away mountains of good food and of course depriving others with their selfishness.

    Yes, an apparent contradiction of suicide is those that appear to be "getting better".
    IIRC, it was that when at the lowest ebb, they can't muster up the will to do it.
    When that lowest low passes however...... :unsure:

    I can remember seeing images of elderly pensioners looking at completely empty shelves wondering how the hell they were going to eat. It actually upset me quite a lot I am not ashamed to admit! Not everyone could afford to panic buy, have a car to carry it, have access to try and get a delivery etc and live day by day. The selfishness was astounding, absolutely no regard for anyone else. Sadly it seems to be the way now, with everything.

    This reminds me of a great put-down from one former colleague to another, some years ago in an early-morning team briefing.

    One guy; a slovenly manc with greasy / wet-head look.
    The second; ex-RAF with a sharp trim you could cut yourself on, and workwear to match.
    "Manc" was also slack in his work, and was attracting negative attention from a few quarters in that regard.


    The exchange went something like this:

    "Manc": "I'm here to do my job right, not to mess about with posh haircuts. Most mornings, I just get out and get on with it. I don't even look in the mirror."

    "RAF": "Evidently."

    :ROFLMAO:

    Mainly resting after a hard days graft yesterday, but we went to a cycling store to look at a new e bike for Mrs CB, saw a couple that would suit but the sales guy said no new stock until 2021 and then first come etc

    Been over the allotment. Haven’t been for a while, just laziness. Lot of stuff in the point of wilting. A good watering sorted them. Picked the last of my tomatoes and beetroot and one fair sized butternut squash.

    Hope it comes back negative and whatever you are feeling soon clears up.
    I usually get a wet shave in the shower, (use an electric one during the week and close wet shave at weekend for my wife's benefit), so without a mirror I feel how smooth it is. Surprising how the littlest hair you miss stands out like a sore thumb.
