Hoping your day ends up better @auntiehill
I'm referring to ones by schools and parks in my area for what it's worth. The infrastructure needs work.
This is an old one but...
when you're in a store browsing, and annoying salespeople keep bothering you, asking if you need any help.
Well if I wanted help I'd fucking ASK for it, bitch! Now leave me the hell alone!
But when you need help, no one is in sight!
But in the end, better to have to seek out help when you need it, rather than have it imposed on you when you don't.

on the subject of shopping, there always seems to be a crowd in front of the one item you were "quickly running in to buy."

Morons in the UK panic buying, this time fuel.
Saw that through all yesterday (Petrol station near us) with people filling up their car, wandering into the shop to buy a jerry can and fill that up too. The station had at least two deliveries of fuel yesterday too
Haven't filled mine up yet (Range is estimated at 150 with what it has in) but the phev portion'll keep me getting to work and back until hopefully everyone stops panic buying
The media really doesn't help in the UK, their scaremongering led to panic buying at supermarkets last year and let's not forget their part on the collapse of Northern Rock.
I think it will calm down though as you say.
So what did the media do this time for panic buying fuel?
Morons are not limited to the UK for panic buying...
^ True there… You should see people out here in Hawaii go crazy for toilet paper at every ‘major bad’ that comes along. Sheeesh!
But what started this fuel thing? Was it Boris?
Panic buying never makes any sense. There's never a reason for it. Oftentimes we have no idea why or how it even starts. It's pretty much a random thing.
I mean, when the pandemic first dropped, people flocked to buy toilet paper, even though there was no logical reason for them to do so (it's not like covid gives people the shits or anything like that ).
So don't even try to explain it. You can't. It's impossible.
Had to share,…
The british media are prone to sensationalist headlines, which bear little resemblance to the actual truth. This crisis started with something like 6 stations struggling to get deliveries but headlines tell us we are facing a fuel shortage, which of course we then do as people read the headlines and not the story.
Its happened throughout brexit, the damaging headlines on vaccine side effects were appalling, and lets not forget the damage they caused in the banking crisis in the late 00's.
Of course they arent solely responsible i accept that, there is a cause for it but i feel responsible reporting rather than sensational clickbating would cause less damage.
You could argue of course its down to those who blindly follow the headlines and panic, and of course it is too. And of course the impact of brexit but getting into a political discussion is something i will steer well clear of.
