Panic buying

Trading is often about how to take the appropriate risk without exposing yourself to very human flaws.

Here we go again. Went to Tesco at lunch and noticed a lot of fruit and veg was missing: -

Feel like its been missing for weeks, but its going to get a hell of a lot worse now
I've heard it's down to harsh weather in Europe and North Africa. It's only expected to last about 3 weeks. Personally, I can live without salad and veg. I'm more concerned about eggs but I got a dozen today. :D

The image of upturned veg crates on the shelves has been an increasingly common occurence round here. But interestingly Morrisons is the most affected. I can ony assume Sainsbury and Tesco customers aren't interested in those products. Or Morrisons don't have the same heft in negotiating with suppliers.

Why are there no aspirins in the jungle?

Because parrots ate 'em all.

I saw a guy stockpiling paella rice, fajitas and Corona lager into his trolley in Tesco earlier today

I thought, "Oh - Oh ! Hispanic buying"
