QFC: I am flattening the curve.
QHG: I need a hug.
QSH: I am sheltering in place.
QHS: I have hand sanitizer. Want to trade for two new cars?
QSD: I am observing social distancing.
QCV: I hate Coronavirus.

From Walter Dufrain - K5EST - QRPcw


Yesterday I walked to my local shop to buy some bread and milk and also for a 30min walk.

Things must be returning to normal, they had bread on offer because it’s sell by date was running out. Always the sucker for a bargain, I bought one as it was still fresh and today it’s still fresh. I told the woman on the till that with the issues occurring it was a crime to let food be thrown out hence buying a soon to be out of date load. She said I should buy 2 or 3 and put them in the freezer. Her face on my reply was priceless as I told her “well I would do that normally but my freezer is full of toilet paper and pasta to keep it fresh till we need it.”. She really was left very puzzled by that reply. :smile:


I had a good laugh! Thanks.
Let me give a new one:
QMD: Mayday, mayday, I DON’T have toilet paper. I have a new car, would you trade some?




:smile: :upside_down_face:
QPP : I accept Paypal if you want some paper :crazy_face:

Those could work, but QSD is already “Your keying is defective”


QSD indeed. Best to stay 6 feet apart than 6 feet under…


Ahh! So that’s why everyone keeps sending me QSD


Yes, who in their right mind would stand anywhere near someone with a defective key? :open_mouth:
