    The whole thing is silly. I just don't get it.
    Seems we had the TP and PT shortage, then other things came. Soap, Clorox, Hydrogen Peroxide.
    Oh, pork is all gone. Beef is extinct. Ain't no formula. Red flags are up! (pun intended)
    The world is sucking up our vast reserves of...Government cheese!

    Lord help us.

    What exactly is the problem? Is that we do not have enough mass shootings or what?

    Shame on us!!! We have no idea what challenge is and our whole world is a bunch of whiners. For those of you who don't know, these are ration books and an application for gas rations that belonged to mother's family. Keep this in mind while you cry about how bad things are. Don't get me wrong. I am not on a high horse. I am convicted by it the same as anyone. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

    A bit off topic I guess but talking of ration books.

    When my Mum was a girl in the war she would come home from school and my Nan would tell that there was a queue down the road, grab the ration books and get on it.

    My Mum would ask what she was going to queue for and apparently Nan would reply

    "I don't know but get some".

    They do say.

    If you stand facing a wall in UK for a few minutes, a queue will form behind you.
    I didn't try it but a Brit definately should, brilliant social experiment.

    It is also said that you can tell the Englishmen on the London Underground, their the ones not talking and that I do believe.

    When I first came to Canada we lived in a condo (block of flats but you own yours rather than renting it).

    My Canadian wife use to laugh at me because i would be chatting away in the elevator until someone else got on, then I would stop mid sentence and stand in silence, I didn't even reply.

    I don't live in a condo now but I still won't chat in front of strangers, a very English thing probably.

    I have to say that I have never seen a more patient people than the British lined up in a queue.

    Ration cards during WW ll? My dad told me if you were willing to pay you could drive down to the gas station after hours and go out back and get all the gas you wanted.

    The same with most other commodities.
