Wife ordered 3 things yest only 2 came so contacted them. They said they would resend but would take a week. (Prime next day we had ordered on) said refund please and they were all apologetic then started blaming covid for supply issues

Please don't dare pull the covid card. Many buisness won't see the other side of covid ..yet Amazon is making their normal sales and more as people are forced to buy more from them.

On the project that I'm helping out by covering someone as well as my own project, they've started hounding me for things that I haven't done immediately. About this close to telling them to shove it. 🤏🏻

The hundreds of people that have descended on every local dog walking route wondering around aimlessly like zombies, doing what I imagine is practicing for the oncoming Christmas shopping spree.
YES ! This! We went out yesterday and it was rammed at one of our usual spots, so we did what any sensible person should have done. Went on by and went somewhere quieter rather than parking on the verge and cramming the place more full! Idiots.

We did an unfruitful dragging car park loop, in the end I said bogger to this band did the same. No way could I let my dogs off the lead with that many people there. Roll on next week.

Genuine question, are there really designated routes only used for walking dogs?

No is the answer. There are however plenty of walks that are popular with dog walkers for a range of reasons. They will also be popular with other walkers, more recently you can add cyclists into some of these routes. Dog walkers don't have exclusive rights to these routes but if you go to one then expect to see lots of dogs, possibly off lead as well.

I think the point of the post is that normally you would just see dog walkers and hardy walkers on these routes. Currently you are seeing a whole host of others of others as well, who will soon disappear again once the shops re-open. They are temporary walkers filling in time.
