    It is just protecting the genes, isn't it? Exactly what evolution desires.

    I am at Hypermart right now waiting for my wife. True, the lines are long but the store is very well stocked and people or very orderly (not what I would call “panic” buying). All lines have checkout clerks working so I think Hypermart is handling this well. You might spend an hour waiting in line.

    My wife just returned from Lee Plaza. She said it was fine. Not too many people and shelves well stocked

    Just came home from Hypermart, wait 1 hour and 20 min in the cafe while gf was in line, staff do a great job, for sure people panic buying lot of same items, alcohol out of stock but peoples behavior is nice not like where I come from in Denmark, police has been out in the malls for fights and arrest people who through around with goods from the shelves, selfish behavior lol

    She asks me to go out, she knows how I feel about stand in line, I'm impressed about Filipino patience in general, I can't handle these situations and avoid them, would go again without shopping if I was alone, but need a birthday present for neighbour kid and was low in food. I would never force my gf to do things she doesn't want to do, just want to let you know :happy::happy::happy:

    No chance I would think that - as I said in another post recently, we can tell the nature of a person by what they post here. :smile:
