I wanted to buy a red poppy today for me and my bro but couldn't find a single vet selling those.

Most people are idiots and no longer care about the fact so many brave men risked their lives for us the future generations, and many people who were in world war two are to old to be out in the cold selling them.

Well there is always the Royal British Legion (in the UK anyway). They are a group of volunteers of all ages who sell the poppies. Most veterans if they can will go out and sell them. Try at a shopping centre or somewhere. They are still around. Maybe a supermarket.

I haven't seen any poppy sellers around. I know there's only like a handful left from WW1 in the UK.

I was in a shopping centre. I was downtown too. Last year they were everywhere. Now it's like they're all dead.

Ok I'm agreeing now. No poppy's anywhere. I don't know where your from but I work at Sainbury's and so far its the only place I have seen one. If your in the UK check your local one.
