Go nowhere, see nothing is today’s mantra for an estimated 20% of the world’s population. But let’s be real. Nobody saw the global lockdown coming. All the more so, nobody could expect how drastically it would change our daily lives.

When the home becomes your only playground, simple things get really damn complicated. From your TV dying on the first day of quarantine to walking around with a tooth knocked out because all non-essential business is closed, there are too many things that can go wrong.

Tune in for Bored Panda’s compilation of unlikely everyday struggles below to see that some people are having a worse day than you.

You're in quarantine with absolutely nothing to do. The cats changed that.

With the coronavirus outbreak in full swing, phrases like “lockdown,” “flattening the curve,” and “self-isolation” have entered our daily vocabulary. Since these terms are new to the general public, let's see what they really refer to.

"Lockdown" isn’t a typical term used by public health officials, but it represents an order to stay indoors. Lindsay Wiley, a health law professor at the Washington College of Law, explained that “lockdown could be anything from mandatory geographic quarantine, to non-mandatory recommendations to shelter in place that can be issued by health officials at the federal, state, or local level.”

Actually..she knows children really well. If me and my siblings had done this to my mother, there would have been holy hell to pay once the witnesses were gone. Mom needs to take the time to set up ground rules and explain to them the seriousness of what her job is. If they can't understand that, then they can be more bored when mom starts taking away TV, video games, toys and other privileges. In order for them to understand the seriousness of the situation..their mother needs to sit down and lay it out for them. Otherwise, mom may find herself out of a job. No job, no house, no food, no toys. Plain and simple. One way to make them behave..make them earn the privileges. Assign time to each chore, task or assignment. If they don't do it..they get no time for TV, video games or other fun. If they behave and get their stuff done..fun time for everyone. If these kids did this at school, they'd be looking at detention or a trip to the principals office.

Most of us are currently staying at home, while some are in "self-isolation." Self-isolation is mandatory for people positive with coronavirus who don’t have critical symptoms that’d require hospital intervention. It’s also a precautionary measure to avoid the spread of the virus.

You've probably heard of “flattening the curve”⁠—a widespread mantra of many health officials and politicians. It refers to flattening the curve in the chart graph that staggers the rate of coronavirus cases. If the curve is flattened, medical facilities will be able to provide tests and treatment to anyone who needs them.
