    Hi w.s., this heat is getting people to crave cold drinks, popsicles and ice cream which also means everyone is out buying them or having them delivered by Instacart or other service apps.
    The competition is high but you might notice your order can’t be delivered sooner or items are not available (please don’t blame shoppers). Summer is here, kids are up later, backyard celebrations, etc.

    A little advice, if you don’t mind ordering and receiving late evening groceries, some shoppers will shop work as long as it’s worth it $$. Gone are the 24hr stores but remember these are the closing times for local stores;

    Met Market: 11pm
    PCC: 11pm
    Qfc: 11pm
    Safeway (Admiral & Roxbury): 1am

    The majority of stores restock in the evening or overnight after the stores have emptied out, there are higher chances the items you want are available. ✌🏼

    i don’t understand, what prompted you to post this message? I’m baffled trying to imagine the thought process that brought you to post a message about buying groceries!?

    She posted good advice & an alert if one needs groceries. At Westwood Village QFC yesterday bottled water was quickly selling out. Selection of ice cream bars was very limited. And I suspect the even warmer weather will cause the essential cooling items to be even more limited.

    Gasp! So scandalous, clutch your pearls tighter lol. I’m not sure where you have beensince 2020 but using delivery services is actually a thing. There are people that hate shopping, don’t have time, etc. It’s hot, people are cranky, lines are long, no parking oh and the bridge thing. The majority of people I know dread leaving w.s. and they work outside of w.s.,driving to Costco feels like punishment,that is why they pay people to do it for them. Good for you for never forgetting to stop at the store after work. Some of us do forget, some realize they need baby wipes but baby is finally taking a nap.
    If you find this post so outrageous then you haven’t read enough ridiculous rants on this blog. Move on instead of wasting your time and energy on something that doesn’t affect you. You could help your friends and neighbors in need with their groceries or errands. Volunteer delivering meals to kids in need. It’s apparent you have free time, use it wisely.

    I completely understand the delivery option and have used instacart for several years. I was curious why you felt compelled to tell others thats all. I guess you felt the need to inform people of grocery shopping opportunities. I never said it was outrageous and there is no need in my opinion for such a large return snark. I guess like many of us, your kindness toward others is based on merit. Peace

    Funny, I didn’t realize this post for a cat sitter was actually a request for unsolicited advice from strangers. What went through your mind, that you know better whats best for this adult and their pet?

    Haha, Easily u forget…. you beat me to it. Another fine drop from @aa on the cat sitter thread: “Unsolicited advice: It’s disrespectful and presumptive to insert your opinions and ideas when they may not be wanted. Unsolicited advice can even communicate an air of superiority; it assumes the advice-giver knows what’s right or best.”

    I’m baffled.

    Im not sure I get the connection, did I offer some unsolicited advice here? Or are you all a bunch of meanies? Ganging up on me for asking a question. Sheesh

    I posted with no other intention other than giving people useful information. My friend and I (both healthcare workers) were conversating over the topic of delivery services. Sunday being her day off was spent being frustrated driving in horrible traffic from Cap Hill to South Center. She placed an online order from a pet store thinking it was going to be an easy an get in get out process. What she learned was that she could have avoided all that traffic both ways, not dealt with employees just by paying a delivery service to pick up her order. She uses one service for grocery but wasn’t aware a different service offers pick up to that pet store. We all learn from everyone or should be willing to try. For some time is money, for her that time was spent away from her disabled husband. @aa If people aren’t an inconvenience or a threat to you there’s no need to question their advice, we’ve all struggled it’s better to learn from the mistakes of others.

    P.s. She had a fan delivered that evening from a local store.

    I appreciate your explanation. As one adult to another I don’t appreciate you telling me when its ok for me to ask questions.

    @aa, Are you an adult? I looked back at some of your posts on other subjects not just this one and it seems to me that you are the quote unquote the meanie(s) then I thought maybe you are a child and your parents forgot to add Parental control on your PC

    Ok I hope everyone is satisfied with the amount of unkindness sent to me. It has felt like a pack of wolves and even though this started with me asking someone a question. You have all throughly beat me down. Peace and kindness be with you and I hope no one ever gangs up on someone you love the way you all have done to me. I ask you please, do not reply to this to tell me I deserved it.

    Well aa, even though you’ve done the same to me on occasion I do agree that what’s happened on this thread amounts to bullying. I also think that the original post (and Ms. Cinnamon) are a prank and prankster, as no one is such an airhead to believe that telling other people how to buy groceries is a valuable public service. What’s next, a kind suggestion on how to tie your shoes to avoid tripping? Nor does any reasonable person use a non-word like “conversating”. I think Ms. Cinnamon is having a good laugh right now, having achieved exactly what ‘she’ set out to do – troll for a catfight. Take what she says with a big dollop of salt.
