Corona Virus Madness

You have all heard, by now, of the shortages of certain items at your grocery stores, things like food, water and the ever so precious toilet paper are either in very short supply or not on the shelves at all. You can just about forget finding surgical or dust masks. I suppose I should not have been surprised when I received an email today from telling me an order I placed yesterday, for dog food and such, will be delayed by as much as two to three times the normal delivery time. One of the things that got me shopping with them in the first place was that they deliver with 1 to 2 days and if your order is over $49.00 it ships free. It says it right there on their home page. While there is a note on their homepage today, notifying folks of the delay, the 1-2 day shipping promise still also shows there as well. Anyway here is the text of the email they sent me:

Dear Glenn,

Things are a little backed up on our end with many pet parents ordering food and supplies. Rest assured, we're working hard to deliver your order as soon as possible, while caring for the health and safety of our team members.

We expect most orders to be delivered within the next 4-6 days. You'll automatically receive a tracking link as soon as your order ships. Nothing to do on your part. We're taking care of it.

Thank you for understanding. We hope all our pet parents and their beloved pets stay safe.

Yours truly,
The Chewy Family
That's just ridiculous, not just that they called pet owners "pet parents" but  that the whole buying frenzy thing has evidently spilled over to the pet food industry. What it means is that idiots out there are stocking up on dog & cat food and things like that. I have got to ask - for what? Do they expect the supply from China to be cut off due to the COVID-19 thing. Then buy American made goods instead of commie crap.

Too bad President Trump was not already in the last year of a second term in office when this happened. I say that because by then, maybe he would have brought enough businesses back into the US and Made In The USA would be so much more prominent that we'd not have to worry about supply issues from the commies. Right now:

All the best,
Glenn B
