An inventive selling idea


We had shortages in supermarkets due to Covid last year as people panic bought – this was world wide.

As you might have heard the UK had problems again with deliveries for food and petrol as due to Brexit there were not enough lorry drivers to deliver goods needed.

Hence we had a petrol shortage. This crises is only in the UK and not related to Covid.

The message that petrol will be short caused of course panic buying, panic filling up with petrol;

The queues were terribly long and caused impossibly many traffic jams.

On my travels, by train of course, I saw this sign in front of a coffee stall.

P.S. the situation has improved and there seem to be more petrol again as the Army is now helping out.

  1. I heard about the recent drivers and petrol shortages in the UK and I am so sorry that you have to go through this. What a mess!
    When I saw the picture of said inventive selling idea, I had to laugh out loud, though. πŸ˜‚
    I hope the world comes back to their senses, soon, and that everyone gets what they need. There is just too much mess going on, not only since Covid and Brexit.
    Much Love – and keep up that humour! πŸ’—

  2. Humor is essential…
    We have shortages over here (finding the:”right” cat food is hit and miss; if you find it you buy 2x what you usually would.) And over the weekend Southwest Airlines cancelled nearly 2000 flights !

    • Same here, I had problems with catfood as well, I got some small expensive ones from the corner shop occacionally. Life is definitely not back to normal. We can only live one day at a time. Hope you are well! β™₯

    • Wir brauchen den Humor zum Ueberleben hier. Es ist nicht einfach und Paeckchen von Deutschland sind so teuer, dass es sich nicht lohnt. Hoffe, Dir geht es gut. β™₯

Love to hear from you......
