I don’t know if I’m a good one to measure scarcity. I don’t go out of my way, usually, to buy items. Meaning, I rarely drive all over town looking for something and rarely buy online. 

There is one thing I was looking for that I can’t find in my grocery stores and it was there. It’s rye flour. I will get some online and that pisses me off a little lol

We’re usually pretty simple with stuff. Sometimes a thing will be out for awhile, a cereal, a certain flavor of something, and then it will pop up. I’ve had to come home and tell my husband, they’ve not had this or that for a couple months. One was Belvita chocolate filled breakfast bars and one was large size Captain Crunch (🤭 yes, my husband likes his particular things sometimes).

For a while it was the store brand 2 liter seltzer. They had a sign saying they couldn’t get CO2 for it. Meanwhile, the brand name (and more expensive) was sitting right there.

But milk, eggs, fish, meat, etc. seem to be ok.

I can’t speak to any hardware, appliances, or parts stuff right now. Good topic. I will add if I come across anything.

@allie120 ha ha!  This great and you're right but I was thinking about things like, honesty. Or maybe, men / women who want to marry in their 20's..?

No, "commodity" is a word like "currency". Smile

In my world, there is a shortage of dogs that don't shed!

Eureka!  Not enough of that substance they tell us is destroying the planet???  Can't plant enough trees or pump it into enough greenhouses fast enough?  Let's just carbonate all municipal tap water -- problem solved!

I like what Elsa said about the dogs, lol. 

I think my “wanting to get together with people” is a short commodity right now. I’m turning down two events because I am not feeling very much like socializing now. I’ll get over it but I am declining these.

I feel very much in my head, despite being here online.

I’m trying to think of something that won’t come off as a narrow, faulty world view…

Two years ago when I chose to become a reclusive hermit rather than a science project guinea pig, I didn't realize how much I'd prefer hermitude over having to dance around social land mines.

@warped I remember those times. It seemed to me that people were trying to make sure others were comfortable, as people had different levels of comfort. 

I think this is just a temporary thing for me this week. There is a Christmas party in a couple weeks and I’m definitely looking forward to this.

There’s a scarcity of letting children play on their own, without over scheduling. I don’t know the name for that. Scarcity of free time.

Good driving. Remember who has the right of way. Know how to go through 4 way stops. Know how to handle a round about.
