This is what COVID-19 has taught me

There 3 types of people in this world.

Type 1 - Generally middle aged-older. Supplies are already at their house. They have a sense of responsibility and preparedness. They don't have to go anywhere, they sit and watch the chaos. Has 50 rolls of TP because they caught it on sale 6 months ago. Makes fun of everyone, especially type 2&3 people.

Type 2 - People that flip out over anything, could be any age- buys things randomly for no reason to make them feel better. They buy everything. They empty stores. They are unprepared for anything, at least they know it and act upon it now. Has 50 rolls of TP because they bought it today. Generally doesn't make fun of anyone, but fights with other type 2 people.

Type 3 - Millennials (mostly)- no preparedness. No urgency. Mad at type 2 people because they bought everything. Thinks that people should leave things in stores for them. They show up 3 days too late and take pics and complain. Probably received participation trophies. Should learn some preparedness. Has 1 roll of TP. Complains about type 2 people, doesn't know type 1 people exist.



Apparently I am type 1…

No doubt, we are type 1.  I guess. I mean I havent been to town for about 2 weeks other than to mail some letters.  Then again, that is pretty much my norm.  I am concerned about running out of feed for the livestock ........in 3 months.

Definitely Type 1 but my TP stockpile is because I shop at Costco. There is no such thing as one roll. Of anything. I don't make fun of Types 2 and 3 because I don't want them to know that me and my Costco TP rolls exist.

I'm now looking forward to a nice big mullein crop this year. Maybe I could sell mullein leaves to all those people who don't have TP.

Type 1 certainly, we buy TP and other things on sale and in bulk, don't have 50tp only have half that, but that's 3 months supply, that will do there after all is no shortage of the stuff we produce enough, extra is not going to get used it's just  a TP flow issue!  Saying that there should be some good deals on it in a month or so because no one will be buying it as they use up their supplies.
Type 3 annoy me, so you are meant ot stay at home as much as possible, not mingle not go shopping, but they expect you to buy only enough for that day? My parents have been told to basically stay at home for 12 weeks.. that takes some stocking up.

To any type 3 out there.. I collected mullein seeds last year I can post you some!
