This is where I stood in line to buy my toilet paper and as soon as they opened their doors the toilet paper aisle is the first place everyone headed and yeah social distancing went out the window. I was a little nervous when I was standing outside in line with my granddaughter and security came out and told us if anyone runs in the store they will be escorted out and if anyone grabs more than one pack they will be escorted out. Black Friday mobs of people knocking people down and running over them for a cheap tv ran through my mind, I almost left but I didn't because I needed toilet paper. I grabbed the first pack I saw and got the hell out of there then realized I paid almost $20 for that pack of toilet paper, more than I've ever paid for toilet paper in my life.
I envy those people that can work from home. I feel sorry for retail/fast food employees that don't have that option and are getting laid off. I feel very blessed that the school district I work for is still paying my salary even though we might not return to finish this school year.
I say FU to all those people posting on social media about doing all these activities with their kids now that they are home. Like someone posted above, it will get old fast and I'm sorry but most parents don't have time to do that so don't anyone feel bad if you're not playing with your kids just because you're home. When I was growing up parents didn't play with their kids, either you played outside all day or in your room. Parents were not your friend they were your parent. I babysit my granddaughter who is 8, she plays with her dolls/toys, or paints or colors or draws, she entertains herself and I don't feel bad/guilty about it.
My trip to the grocery store yesterday was pretty productive the store was well stocked except for toilet paper/paper towels which I don't need since I still have the pack I bought from Target but I just don't get the whole hoarding toilet paper mentality. If people just bought their usual amount when shopping their would be enough for to go around. I hate hoarders!
