Default Re: Crazy Walmart Shoppers

I started down one aisle, went about 10 feet, realized I was in the wrong aisle, turned around and started to head out. Suddenly a man started screaming (yes, screaming)

"You're going the wrong way! You're going the wrong way!"

It appeared to this man that I had committed an un-forgiveable act !

Are people getting crazier or is this typical in "fear-soaked America?"
Hi Millard,

I don't have any statistics... but you do get the feeling that some people are going a little "stir-crazy"...

(Heck, I'm going a little stir-crazy myself!)

In a way, I'm lucky - we live right in front of a creek, with a long thin park that goes for miles along the creek. It's right behind our house...

My wife recently insisted that we go for a half-hour walk along the creek, early every morning.

I grumbled - but I feel better now that I'm getting used to it!

We try to go at the crack of dawn, to avoid the other people who have the same idea...

I think it's a great idea to get out and stretch your legs where you can - and where there aren't too many people, if possible...!

I agree, some people are going a bit nuts...

I feel exercise helps to make you feel more normal again - especially if you're spending most of your time cooped up inside...

- Dien
