I went down to Sainsbury’s this afternoon to get some provisions.
Not to ‘panic buy’ and to fill my cupboards with stuff that can be delivered to my house at any time. Nope. Just to buy some essential provisions.
Once again, the shelves were bare.
No toilet roll. No pasta. No pasta sauce. No wet wipes for my two young children (it would seem that adults have now started to ‘panic buy’ wet wipes owing to the on-going shortage of toilet paper — on behalf of all parents of toddlers and babies: thanks for that!).
Some elderly shoppers were walking around, and they looked genuinely upset because younger people, who have a good chance of fighting off coronavirus should they get it, have been panic buying goods which are essential to people who cannot afford to bulk buy.
But, as we all know, the vast majority of people do not care about common sense or common decency.
They HAVE to do what they are advised not to do: panic buy.
But as I walked around the superstore, I was quite tempted to put on some nitrile gloves that I have in my car (don’t ask).
But because they are bright purple, then I thought that I would end up looking like a t**t.
Instead, I just wheeled the trolley around without touching the handles and then wiped my hands with some anti-bacterial wipes which I always keep in the car.
But for one shopper in Perth, how he looked was of no concern to him as shown by the fact that he was wearing a gas mask, some wellies and some gloves which I thought only vets wore when they put their hands up cows a*ses.
Truth be known, I admire this guy for not giving two f’s about what other people think of him.
If everyone wore what he was wearing, then the spread of coronavirus would stop dead in its tracks.
Note also, that he appears not to be panic buying and is putting stuff in his trolley which will keep him going for the next seven days rather than the next seven months.
But how would you feel if you saw this male in the shops?
Would you laugh? Sneer? Take pics of him before uploading the pics to social media?
Or would you stand back and admire his dedication to not wanted to spread/catch COVID-19?
