I also am hearing that people are filling their shopping carts with items and then realize it is a 30-45 minute wait to checkout and thus leaving their cart abandoned because they do not want to wait.

I wonder what the odds are that any of mlb/nba/nhl end up having a 2020 champion Highly unlikely for NBA/NHL, although i heard if they came back say July 1st( which includes 2 weeks of time for teams to get back up to speed) they could finish a shortened version of the playoffs by mid August and th...

I see my Facebook feed and i see people in other states(Florida) for example going out to the bars like life hasn't changed, the bars seem packed. It makes me cringe, especially if the worse case scenario plays out
