As y'all know, I work at a major grocery store.
Well, all I can say is My Goodness Gracious!
The last 3 days at the store have been nothing short of insane! People are freaking the heckarooni out!
Our shelves are bare of hand sanitizer, hand soap, toilet paper, paper towels, bottled water, bread, and more! It gets taken the second we put it out.
I'm telling y'all, I'm deeply concerned for peoples' safety and sanity! Our store opens at 6am, and today there was a line of people waiting to rush in when the door was unlocked. It was crazy busy from that time on.
The public is panicking in my area. I believe it is an unwarranted panic.
Let's all take a deep breath in, and slowly exhale. As many times as it takes to get grounded. To feel the calm within. Let's all do some research on this pesky virus. When we do this we find, that the vast majority of the time, things are not as bad as our imagination has led us to believe. And even if they are bad, there are calm, rational ways to deal with it.
Please, my friends, take the alarmist media with a grain of salt and make a plan to keep yourselves as healthy as possible, without freaking out.
So, my Spark Friends, I am hoping this virus panic ends soon. People don't deserve to live in a state of total insecurity.
It's all gonna be okay. It really will. I wish peace of mind to each of you, and all of my customers too.
