The weather was not bad this morning, although there was a 30% chance of rain this afternoon. I debated whether or not to do some work in the yard (I mowed yesterday, but there's always tons more to do), but decided to go to Wal Mart. Of course, it started raining the minute I pulled out of the driveway. Luckily, it stopped by the time I got to the store. Anyway, (to get back on topic) I was amazed at how many people missed the lesson in grade school where you learned that arrows indicate direction and that green means go and red means stop. About half of the shoppers were entering the one-way aisles the wrong way. (I did hear one guy tell the woman with him 'oops, we're going the wrong way', but I noticed that they did it again on the next aisle (I guess once you get that momentum going, you can't stop, right?). I have noticed that I've gotten a little more passive-aggressive (if that's the right term) in my shopping. I (wearing my mask) follow the arrows and walk with my buggy (cart to you non-southerners, ha ha) right in the middle of the aisle, leaving it there if I go over to get something from a shelf. If someone comes at me the wrong way, they have to scooch around me (and I make a point of stepping a couple of steps away from them). It's not much in the grand scheme of things, but I find that it makes me feel a tiny bit better. (Although, maybe the gods didn't like my attitude, because it started to rain pretty hard as I was walking to my car, so I got soaked and had to bring wet bags into the house.)
I'm trying not to be pessimistic about future lock-downs, but I did buy one big packet of TP and one of paper towels to put away 'just in case'. I would have gotten some more canned goods, but the veggie aisle was still almost bare (except for some flavors of canned corn and those dratted French green beans that no one ever seems to want to buy).
