It's happened to all of us. We get our shopping list ready; we put on our fashionable, non-medical face mask; we emotionally prepare ourselves to brave the once-great outdoors, catching our breath as we imagine the anxious charge of locking eyes with a stranger for the first time in... well, a while. Finally we arrive at the store - after standing in the line curling around the side of the building, one by one, six feet apart - and within a minute or two, we realize the whole reason we left the house (bravely, we thought) is now moot.

Why? Because for not the first time, pretty much everything we needed is inexplicably out of stock. Indeed, the number of items shops and grocery stores perpetually run out of during quarantine is substantial, ranging from the basic dietary essentials like eggs, flour, and bread to the suddenly in-demand items like disinfectant wipes.

So, think back to your last unsuccessful shopping trip and vote up which items, in your experience, always seem to be out of stock these days.
