Its so over the top. I can't wait till this is over and flu season comes around. I wannabe the girl in walmart that starts yelling and freaking out being like "OMFG I'M GONNA DIE. THIS IS WORSE THAN COVID!!!! Disinfects, STOCK Up NOW!! They might be gone tomorrow... If you start coughing and sneezing go to the hospital!! You might not see tomorrow...!" I'm that teen!

i mean people should do better if this virus is as deadly as the experts claim. instead people are being dumb and protesting the government a few cities over from me and acting like everything is cool.

I'm somewhere in the middle. I worry about it. I worry about catching it, the people I'm close to catching it, or anyone catching it for that matter. I check the figures everyday. Everyday I before I get my temperature taken at work, I feel tremendous anxiety.

On the other hand, I'm cynical. I'm totally willing to follow all social distancing measures but part of me does wonder if some of them are about control and less about public health. I don't think many officials have their heart in the right place and that pisses me off.

I work in a highly public setting. I am exposed to literally thousands of people every single day and I'm disgusted by how people cherry pick which measures they're going to take seriously. Do you really need to bring your family of 10 to go shopping and congest the aisle, making social distancing impossible? But I guess you're all wearing masks...

With no gloves, so that's okay.

People are hoarding cosmetic items. I don't see how your fake nails are an essential item and I wouldn't really care, but other businesses are being shut down for being "nonessential" and people are only going to crowded Walmarts for nonessential items.

I learned yesterday that as an employee, I need to wear a mask and gloves to work (I understand) but my Walmart only puts signs all over the store to wear a mask, practice social distancing, etc but they do nothing to enforce it. If you aren't wearing any protective gear, they won't turn down a customer. They can put red tape on the floor but it doesn't matter - people don't follow it. People still congest aisle traffic all the time. People still hoard and my store does nothing to limit it.

People are so selective about which orders to follow and I'm disgusted by it.

The store I shop at in England doesn't allow multiple people in together, you have to be alone. But we're not required to wear protective gear and very few do.

Protective gear is annoying but I totally get why I have to wear it so I don't mind it as much. It's the people who only want to look like they're making an effort when they're really just being a nuisance who bother me and I'm fed up with my job not stepping up to these assholes. People should NOT be allowed to hoard all of our hand sanitizer or toilet paper and they shouldn't be treating my workplace as a setting for social gatherings. I know most people complain that there are protests outside of buildings, but honestly, those look no different than my workday on a Tuesday afternoon. People only seem to want to look like they care but their actions read that they really don't take it seriously and this is like a nice indefinite vacation for them.

Working with the public has me really jaded. I feel like a lot of people don't care at all but wanna look like they do for attention.

My state is one of the ones that reopened prematurely. Time will tell. But I think it is a mistake. I hope I am wrong.

NY state is not doing a very good job at all. We've got the highest number of cases and the county I live in is the worst! People feel our governor is deliberately killing off the senior citizens. Hopefully though, even if NY state still hasn't fully reopened by August, New England will and I'll still be able to take my vacation.
