Bulk-buying hand sanitizer or hoarding rice may not look like a big deal for some. But it adds to the shortage of supplies depriving those really in need and making the matters worse. Plus, it’s been proven to earn one a badge of dishonor: the title "corona jerk."
Now that the real threat of the virus is well under way, corona jerks are getting more desperate in making plain bad decisions. From licking a toilet seat for the "coronavirus challenge" to smearing saliva on the handrails in the train, every corona criminal will face a trial by the internet police.
So let’s go through some teeth-clenching cases together, but beware of contraindications—some of that dumb behavior will make your blood boil. After you’re done, there’s another batch of corona jerks from Bored Panda’s previous compilation here.
Stop Making A Hard Situation Worse
Today I went shopping to pick up some food and toilet paper because we are actually running out and need some. I am in my 30s, have the internet and options to adapt in this situation...
I saw this fb post and it broke my heart. Hoarding is not the solution and we need to be mindful of others. We are all in this together!
This Isn't Right
Today I went grocery shopping, and saw this elderly man, probably at least 84 years old, with an empty trolley staring at empty shelves of bread. My heart broke. I had gotten the last two hot dog bun packs and gave him one out of my trolley, I said “At least it’s still bread” and he laughed and thanked me (I felt that was the least I could have done for him) If you see an old person, please stop and ask if they need anything. Stop and give them something from your trolley that is no longer on the shelves that you could easily come back and get tomorrow. Who knows where they came from or how long it took them to get to the shops, only to get there and find empty shelves. In a time of complete and utter maddens and chaos, please don’t forget to look out for each other and look out for those who need it most. Check up on your elderly neighbour or friend or elderly stranger on the street. Don’t be consumed by greed. Love thy neighbour.
Panic buying amid the coronavirus outbreak has been spotted in numerous places around the globe.
Paul Marsden, a consumer psychologist at the University of the Arts London, believes that such behavior is linked to our currently unstable emotional state. “It’s about ‘taking back control’ in a world where you feel out of control, and it plays to our fundamental psychology needs.” Plus, if everyone around is stockpiling, you get the signal that it’s the right thing to do.
Dmitrios Tsivrikos, a lecturer in business psychology at University College London, believes that the toilet paper has become an icon of mass panic. The fact that COVID-19 is such a novel virus we know so little about adds to the fear and fuels irrational behavior.
