I did most of my panic buying two weeks ago. It's two extremes here, people are freaking out or they don't care.
This is what pisses me off.
I try to tell the people I care about (Yep, mostly boomers) that perhaps stocking up on some goods may be a wise thing, but they're so set in just not giving a shit. Not just denying it, but persistent on not doing anything.
Like, FFS, I'm not telling you the world is ending and to go ape shit, I'm telling you to be SMART. It's not bad to be cautious and safe.
The funny part is when they smirk and tell me, "I'll just go to your place if things get bad."
