Groceries during quarantine-

Either:
-Nothing left to eat
or
-Way too much food and we have to throw a bunch of stuff away once it goes bad
My dad always says he's undefeated at tailgating

Maybe it's not I who doesn't know what he's talking about

Waiting on line and freaking nasty assholes in the grocery store.

We lost too much fresh produce this summer, either we got better at managing use of it or my wife is hiding the spoilage from me.

What would be nice would be if I could at least generate some consistency. I’m biking to and from the grocery store so I’m only buying what can fit in a messenger bag but it never seems to last as long as the previous trip.

What I’m really looking forward to is the infection rate spiking because of the flu (it’s already started) and people deciding that they need to buy all of the flour, TP, and pasta again.

I just read an article this morning that baking goods and canned goods are starting to disappear again.

Speaking of which, to worry less about spoilage, you all need to invest in beans and rice/pasta. With a stocked spice cabinet and a supply of olive oil, you'll have food for long periods without spoilage.

Minor annoyance here, but when you hear people on the news reporting on a story about something in the Latino community, and they speak in a typical American English dialect/accent until they get to the word "Latino". They then proceed to pronounce the word "Latino" in the strongest Spanish accent possible, then proceed straight back to normal American English. Why? I would understand if there was no English word for Latino but there is. It's Latino.  I would understand if they did the entire report with a Latin accent. It's almost like they're trying to brag that they know Spanish or something.  It's like nails on the chalkboard for me.

Buying a new phone and immediately dropping it as hard as possible before my case comes in the mail

Similarly - working at a Japanese restaurant and having random non-Japanese people abruptly pronouncing words on the menu "authentically" but inevitably butchering it - or even better trying to correct our waitstaff's pronunciation. No one's freaking impressed douchebag

It's also equally as annoying to hear sharp southern-accent mispronounced mexican food orders.
