I understand what is meant when talking of the "imbeciles" (haha I enjoyed wkdclwn96's short rant) but I don't think that the craziness can be
avoided. I consider myself a calm and rational person, and I do try not to lose control over insect flatulence...
... But the things I heard on the
radio added with the numerous people calling me with panic in their voices and I found myself beginning to feel a bit panicky myself. It was short
lived, since I realized there was absolutely nothing that I could do about the situation, but I was still angry.
What I'm trying to say is that humans react on the emotions around them. Once the panic starts it is hard to stop, and normally calm people will
probably still be sucked in by a bit of panic. Its a terrible thing, and I agree that it is irritating, but I'm not sure it could have been avoided -
unless the gas prices hadn't been raised in the first place...
