People are friggin idiots!!

Last night I took the boat to fill it up with gas, I pull in the truck stop and people are running around like headless chickens shouting comments like "we are under attack", and "the end is near" bla bla bla! everyone was putting gas in anything that they could find.

My biggest worry was finding a place open to buy beer

This amazes me! I don't understand why in the heck people react the way they do. PLEASE REMAIN CALM EVERYTHING WILL BE O.K.
I was working in a retail store in Detroit yesterday when it went out within 45 minutes ALL of the water in the store including the backroom stock was sold out! This is a Wal-Mart size store! Can you say over react

And another thing why is it that they always put on the big fat lady with no teeth from the trailer court when they have a news interview

I need to stop drinking coffee when I post

In general. People are idiots. Watch the news every time they call for a bad storm to hit. All you see is footage of the stores being cleared of their stuff. These people really think they will be stuck in their houses for months on end. Thrillseeker, you should do my job. You will get a real view on how much people are idiots. Troutly can elaborate on that.
