Woman walked out of Tesco in front of me carrying 2 cucumbers only! Wtf?

Depends what she plans to do with them I suppose.

They are in this house. The only vegetable that dd2 eats without moaning.

OddBoots Sun 05-Apr-20 17:37:54

maybe she wanted other things but they were out of stock?

Good grief not another competitive bare essentials thread.

LouiseTrees Sun 05-Apr-20 17:38:19

hmm wonder if why she needed cucumbers blush

Magicbabywaves Sun 05-Apr-20 17:38:30

Maybe it was the first time she’d been out the house? Mind your own business.

wonder if why she needed cucumbers

It’s Piimms weather grin

FFS mind your own bloody business.

Are we going to question whether everything is essential? What are we allowed to buy OP?

P1nkHeartLovesCake Sun 05-Apr-20 17:41:16

She had lube too, it was in her pocket. Poor love can’t get a tinder shag right know can she 😂

Well technically nothing is an essential food purchase during this time as most healthy people could survive 3 weeks without eating. Do we really want to get into policing what people are eating and drinking?

Slith Sun 05-Apr-20 17:41:38

Perhaps she went for lots of other things as well but they didn't have any?

SarahInAccounts Sun 05-Apr-20 17:41:48

Maybe she did a click and collect yesterday and half the stuff didn't turn up (like we did)

If we were allowed out we'd be doing something similar.

NamasteAtHome Sun 05-Apr-20 17:42:00

Pathetic. I can’t believe we are reduced to this.

Flymetothetoon Sun 05-Apr-20 17:41:58

Ffs can we stop this now it's getting ridiculous.
We are all different and what is essential to one person isn't necessarily essential to the next.
If any anyone judges what I buy at the shops they will be told to keep their nosy beak to themselves!

GreenWheat Sun 05-Apr-20 17:42:05

Are fresh fruit and vegetables essential? Yeah. Now take of that massive pair of judgy pants and find something yo do.

Singlebutmarried Sun 05-Apr-20 17:42:35

I pop out for fruit and veg as we need it. It doesn’t keep forever.

We bulk buy meat, portion it and vac pack it in the freezer.

But fruit and veg we buy fresh. It doesn’t all go off at the same time.

Perhaps all her other fruit n veg was fine and she needed cucumber

JasonPollack Sun 05-Apr-20 17:42:54

Unless she also had lube and condoms I would say not.

Well done for noticing! Have you considered starting up a neighborhood watch.

FlapAttack23 Sun 05-Apr-20 17:42:58

Double fun times?

MysteryFrog Sun 05-Apr-20 17:43:07

Think the 110% result says it all op!

480Widdio Sun 05-Apr-20 17:43:19

Mind your own business.

mrsbyers Sun 05-Apr-20 17:43:22

For god sake mind your own business , I’m sure she could question the contents of your shopping bags and ask similar

TheHumansAreDefinitelyDead Sun 05-Apr-20 17:43:55

People are really going out of their way to get their knickers in a twist over something anything.... grin

Who cares

I don’t think it is up to citizens to police other citizens


Cohle Sun 05-Apr-20 17:44:06

Pimms. Or makeshift sex toys? grin

But yeah, I do think running out to the shops every time something takes your fancy is pretty shit behaviour these days.

myself2020 Sun 05-Apr-20 17:44:32

Over various threads we had people stating that all these are NOT essential
- cucumber
- milk
- fresh fruit
and that’s just what i saw. so what is actually essential? tinned vegetables only?
