For years, my hubby has been wiring housesâ€¦ He is a certified electrician who does a marvelous job, but since the pandemic but, all I ever hear is how annoyed he is that he can’t get the things he needs to do his job! Whenever he orders something, it takes well over a month to receive it.
He has cursed our Amazon, Ebay, and even our local beach condo center; Although none of them can hear him because he orders online, I hear him, and frankly, I am getting exhausted of it, last week, he was looking for a roll of 12 gauge coated wire so he could put some current light switches in our kitchen.
He called the beach condo center to order a roll of 12 gauge coated wire. When they told him they didn’t have any stock, he asked when it would be in. They must have given him the wrong answer, because he went ballistic! I heard him say he didn’t need 16 gauge plastic coated rebar tie wire, he needed 12 gauge coated wire for outlets. He hung up grumbling and told myself and others he couldn’t put in the current switches, and he had no method when it would be in. I am so exhausted of all these shortages and when it affects my hubby’s work, it makes myself and others annoyed. Seriously, what will be next? Will there be a shortage on light bulbs and I’ll need to get a shower in the dark? Will there be a shortage on shoes and almost everyone will need to go barefoot? Now I’m the 1 that is getting annoyed.
