I think the respect goes both ways. People should try to limit traffic in a grocery store as best as possible, but people should also respect others' decisions to go with someone else if they feel they need to, as who are any of us to decide what we deem appropriate and essential without knowing their situation(s). Assuming any of our situations are more essential than someone else's is a slippery slope, and the fact of the matter is that grocery shopping is now a game of Frogger that we all have to play. It's also why grocery stores have to limit the number of customers at one time, so if a lane is crowded at some point, people will just have to wait a few seconds or minutes until the car has passed and they can jump to the side of the street safely. 

Sorry, but there is health warning/requests about limiting people going into the store to 1 person. This isn't my hair brain idea. 99% of those people are just being ignorant.

 

I fully support the 1% that need someone to help them. But we are not a society of invalids. Those people that absolutely need someone to help them also suffer from the husband and wife tag team, that are taking their rights to the extreme.

 

The rule is there for a reason. I actually find it kind of ridiculous to have to argue the case. Again, for those that need it, please do with my blessing, but come on! Most don't.

 

It would be totally fantastic, if when we seen a couple we actually knew that they needed it. But the truth is, that most are just full of self importance.

 

Note, That I have a handy capped person that lives below me, and he fights desperately  to maintain his independence. So I find it a little hard because someone wants to be with his wife, just because he wants to go. Seems very self serving and not very respectful of others.

 

Again, if you actually need someone with you.....you have my blessing! But not just so your partner does not buy the wrong bread.

One of my semi-affordable favorites (as affordable as Scotch goes anyway):

Sip it room temp, if you prefer, add a splash of filtered water (I prefer neat myself).

 

Thank you again for the recommendation

I can see why Florida is regarded as a dick of the US.  Although they do have some good theme parks.

Nah, the real Dick of the US sits in the White House.  

 

King Donald thinks he has the absolute authority to open up the economy even though a month ago he sat on his hands, refusing to tell Governors to shut it down.  Shutting things down was always up to individual states.  So is opening things up.  Of course there are some soft heads who would prefer to be told what to do.  I just hope that reason and good sense prevails.

Not surprised a majority of the states on that list are in the south, just sayin'.

 

I am super surprised about Indiana being on that list though...Purdue, Notre Dame, Indiana University, Ball St, Valparaiso..they've got some really good universities there.  Would have expected them higher.

Not surprised that 9 out of 10 “dumbest” states are firmly in the hands of the Republicans.

Indiana does have some good schools but lot of hillbillies live there.

Apparently Texas is opening up next week.

If playing Frogger will save lives, bring it on.

 

If the argument is based on “inconvenience”, so is death. Death is very inconvenient.

 

Seriously.

I'm not sure what you mean? What argument is based on inconvenience?

Talking about the small percentage of the people who are obviously not caring.

 

People have needs. Absolutely. And 90%-99% are with the program.

 

But the ones who are flouting rules because the rules are inconvenient, are also the one who usually don’t give two s**ts about anything else.

 

Those are the ones to be called out just like people would call out a man beating his wife in public or a kid getting bullied. 
 

Their rights stop where others’ start.
 

And if the rule is 1 person at a time, perhaps there ought to be exceptions with papers that do say that assistance is a need; like a right to park in a handicap zone.

But you also called me out earlier in this thread, so am I part of the smart ones or the ignorant ones? If you think the latter, please explain how so.

 

Also, show me where this rule is of one person, please. 

 

Edit: And ftr, since it appears to not be obvious to you or others, I'm not advocating for people not practicing proper social distancing.
