People like this person, for instance.

And we only mention this because someone called @NatFigBar shared a few thoughts she found on Facebook.
‘Saw this on Facebook today and it’s a must read for all those idiots clearing the shelves,’ said @NatFigBar (who lives in Australia) and it is, it really is.
And it chimed with lots of people.
I had the same with an elderly woman lost and not sure what to do as there were no paper products at shops. It’s awful.

Not everyone, though.
3 people clinging to a cliff by their fingernails; a pregnant woman, a young child & my own son. Who do I save first? MY OWN SON..every time, all the time. If I can help the other two afterwards I will but I know my priorities. I would expect the same in reverse. #myfamilyfirst
