I order online at the Food Lion website and select a pickup time slot. When I get the notification that the order is ready for pickup, I drive over, park in a pickup spot, and call the number listed on the sign to let the store know I've arrived. An employee brings the order to my car. I pop the trunk, they put the order in, then I say thanks and go home.

1. Plan menu for following week.

2. Write shopping list from menu. The list is divided into fresh, dry, deli, cold, meat, and other.

3. Put on pants.

4. Let car warm-up in driveway for about 10 minutes.

5. Put on mask.

6. Drive to store.

7. Get cart.

8. Get groceries. Start in produce, then aisles, meat, cold case, beer, and deli.

9. Give dirty looks to people who don't follow the one-way arrows on each aisle.

10. Checkout. This usually involves me doing my own bagging.

11. Put groceries in back of car.

12. Put cart in corral. This usually involves rearranging the carts since most people are too lazy to sort by cart type and too weak to push the carts together.

13. Drive home.

14. Take mask off.

15. Take groceries inside.

16. Wash hands.

17. Put groceries away.

18. Take off pants.

19. Take shower.

for those of you who place your grocery order in advance and then go pick them up, how many of the items that you ordered are not available when you actually go to pick them up? i've heard from plenty of people who order things in advance, and then they are out of stock on actual pick-up day.

I go to store, start at produce since thats closest to entrance. Then I usually hit up bread and meats, cause thats next closest. After that I go to middle aisles, because thats next closest. Finally I hit up the back of the store, since that is closest to the middle aisles. After that I walk to self checkout, and take my receipt when finished paying. Load up car, bring groceries inside.

Was A Tanzarian's post a joke?

Drives around in a mask? Doesn't sanitize hands after after touching every shopping cart in the corral/literally the dirtiest things in a grocery store?

My routine

1 - Drive to store and park.
2 - Put on mask and gloves.
3 - Whip out my junk through the zipper hole so everyone can see what I'm working with.
4 - I try to avoid shopping carts if I can but if I need one I sanitize the parts I'll be touching.
5 - Shop, while not touching mask face junk etc and generally trying to touch as little as possible. I usually keep my sunglasses or glasses on so I can be sure I'm not going to touch my eyes/around my eyes.
6 - Checkout. Pay with my credit card. Take groceries to the car.
7 - Unload groceries.
8 - Take off gloves - https://www.globus.co.uk/how-to-safely-remove-disposable-gloves. Throw them in a trashcan or in a corner in my trunk.
8 - Open car door and sanitize hands thoroughly.
9 - Take off mask.
10 - Sanitize anything I touched prior to sanitizing my hands (phone, glasses, keys, car door handle credit card etc) with wipes.
11 - Sanitize junk and put back into my pants.
12 - Leave.
13 - Wash hands and junk as soon as I get home and after unloading the groceries.

Gloves aren't necessarily bad they just give a false sense of security and aren't necessarily helpful when doing a task like grocery shopping where you are necessarily touching lots of things.

I'm not arguing that you wear gloves or not. Do what you want. That's clearly what I'm doing.

You are the one arguing that my practices are wrong, so I asked you for your position on the matter and all you can do is spam article links. Which I assumed you could distill into some compelling points on what you thought vs what organizations that base nearly every decision on the financial need to get clicks and eyeballs are pushing and I guess that assumption was wrong.

I never suggested that was the case. You're the one who brought up the CDC hence my question.

Hate answering a question with a question, but i guess when Fauci said he’d bet anything you can’t get reinfected a 2nd time after recovering the first time, that still means you can spread it, even if immune?

How do you've know you had it? You've already had an antibody test?

I don't think the data is fully in on if you can get infected again and/or spread it after getting infected...well, there are definitely ways anyone can spread it even if you're a COVID superhero.

lol what he allegedly said was far from conclusive, and ofc he's standing beside your Cheeto-In-Chief so I won't be basing any decisions on what I do based on what comes out of his mouth. He may be the smartest person in that room but he also chose to be in that room.

That's a very generous read on the situation. I can see where you're coming from, and can respect the amount of basic level beefing he does with the Cheeto, but he also stands silently by while Trump touts wildly unproven COVID "treatment" drugs and suggests people inject Lysol.

Before Covid-19
As the week progresses gradually add items to my Wal-mart pick up order. Place the order on Friday morning. Pick up groceries on Friday after work. Go home. Drink beer.

After Covid-19
1) Roughly plan meals (because let's be honest, there is a good chance that some of the staples that I want for a meal won't be in stock)

2) Make a list

3) Get to Food Lion shortly after I wake up in the morning and bring only my debit card and keys in with me.

4) Walk around and play my own version of Chopped and try to figure out what meals I can make with the foods in stock.

5) Leave store, load everything in trunk, get in car and start it making sure to only touch keys when starting, then hand sanitize before I touch anything else.

6) Get home and unload everything and say fuck it because I'm tired from trying to figure out what the hell we are going to eat this week, I'm not in the mood to sit and wipe off everything, I'm just going to put it up and pray that someone with the virus didn't go around touching everything that I picked up.

7) Call my husband and ask him to bring Bojangles when he comes home for lunch

8) Eat all the food in the house within 2 days

9) Say "Okay, now that I've eaten all the junk in the house I'm going to start getting healthy food again"

10) Go back to step 1

A) don’t think he was in the room when the idiot said that dangerously idiotic thing

and

B) man’s gotta do what he’s gotta do to be able to be in that room and use that platform to get his expertise out to as many people as possible. he can’t do that if he gets shitcanned for hurting the idiots feelings.

He was in the room day after day after day after day while Trump was touting wildly unproven drugs for Covid treatment that the world as a whole started hoarding and taking in response including the couple that took some stupid form of resulting in at least one death.

Yeah like I said earlier I get that argument and I do really mostly agree with it, but his boss is clearly doing some incredibly and obviously dangerous stuff with nearly every action/communication he takes/makes, including these stupid press conferences where his boss speaks first with a bunch of lies, blaming, falsehoods etc and then he speaks with supposedly supporting points and isn't allowed to publicly disagree with his boss.

He's clearly a hero but I don't feel he's doing enough.
