Like many people, I have been trying to avoid the supermarkets as much as possible recently, only making the dangerous trip when I need to.
For some reason, shoppers forget about the need to stay at least two metres away from each other when they are shopping for pasta, lemons and tins of tomatoes.
But online shopping is not a viable option at the moment because the virtual queues are a nightmare. Supermarkets are ramping up their delivery and online shopping infrastructure, but it is taking some time.
Virtual shoppers are having to sit in front of their computers for up to two-three hours at a time without closing their screens; otherwise, they could lose their place in the virtual queue.
I guess at least it is one way to pass the time while you are on lockdown.
But how much patience would you need to sit in a virtual queue that has 127,721 people in front of you!? This particular website reckons that it will be able to process the 127,721 orders in one minute, which sounds too good to be true!?
Surely they mean ‘1 day’ or ‘1 week’!?
This is the ‘longest’ virtual queue that we have seen, but what’s the longest virtual queue you have had to endure? Let us know in the comments below!
