it's not just you... I don't wrench, I'm in retail, but we are still having trouble getting things in. they get ordered, but don't come.
toilet paper/paper towels are still a shot in the dark. a lot of the time we'll have 1 brand filling the whole aisle. might be 50 feet of angel soft, where it should be a mix of 10-15 brands and styles.
a local appliance shop JUST got in the appliances they had ordered for BLACK FRIDAY.... last week.....
My nephew works at a nearby whirlpool Freezer plant, hired in over the summer 3rd shift, 10hr shifts, 4 days a week. ended up 12-14 hr days 6 days a week right up until Christmas. (he was a Maintenance/Utility worker. basically filled in any and every where)
he's since moved to a different part of the plant( the Foam room), now 8 hrs 5days. he's handling it much better. (First real job out of HS)
