We are currently living in a pandemic where an invisible virus is circulating around the world. We don’t know who has it. We don’t know who could be a carrier. We just know it’s out there and it can be on anything and anyone.
The virus is causing businesses to close temporarily, some are closing permanently and some are furloughing employees because those businesses can’t afford those people anymore.
The nation was on a lock down. Restaurants were either closed, making deliveries or only providing curbside service. Shops were closed. We only really had Walmart and Target available for shopping needs. Online shopping became the way to shop for household essentials. And I mean, household essentials as toilet paper, lysol products, scrubbing bubbles, paper towels and the Nintendo Switch (which were all sold out for several months). Don’t judge, for those locked at home, the Nintendo Switch became a necessity.
And before you judge, I purchased my Nintendo Switch just weeks before I was furloughed. I had no idea I was going to be furloughed. If I had known, I wouldn’t have made that pricey purchase. I don’t regret this purchase though, it has provided me many hours of mindless entertainment where I would have driven myself mad without it.
