I had a serious moment of frustration at Wal-Mart yesterday.
First let me say that any private business has the right to set guidelines. Remember “No shirt, no shoes, no service” signs?
Getting into the parking lot was nearly disastrous as ALL vehicles were using a single exit path. Once I got into the lot it seemed unusual that the area I normally park in was nearly empty of cars. (I am an adult so yes I have my favorite parking places at stores.) That is when I discovered that only one entrance is being used. An entire mob of bodies using one entrance simultaneously.
As I had just gotten off work as a welder nobody in their right mind would have wanted to be that close to me. And then there is the whole social distancing thing…
Inside the store is traffic control arrows on the floor. People don’t even obey driving laws so you know how effective this is. Not only was it impossible to keep 6 feet from other people some of the customers were visibly irritated by those going “the wrong way” through the aisles.
As a society have we really reduced ourselves to this state of fear and frustration?
