Supermarket shopping in NJ was bizarre over weekend (Opinion)
Sunday morning around 10:30 a.m., I got an alert that this Facebook post was blowing up. It's a video of shoppers allegedly at supermarket near the shore that had a line way out into the parking lot.
People are standing at least 6 feet part with empty carts. Major stores like Walmart, Target and Home Depot were taking similar measures, keeping shoppers out of the store to avoid overcrowding.
I was planning a trip to my local supermarket later Sunday afternoon, but I got in the car and drove to my market to see if the chaos had hit there. Luckily, it's a smaller, family-run store and there were only about a dozen customers and things were normal. About two-thirds of the patrons were wearing masks and a couple of the employees.
It's definitely getting more strange out there with each passing day. I would only wear a mask to make others feel secure. I feel like writing a message on the outside, like the thing you say when you break up with someone. "It's not you, it's me!"
