I guess I got my answer...

Ask the little angel on your shoulder to whisper "You know what, this person was right the last time we disagreed..." into your ear.

Thanks for sharing. I think there are some understandable reasons why some people have been doubters or slow to come around:

1. They’ve never seen anything like this in terms of a disease
2. There’s a lot of info out there, a lot of info has been incomplete, and the info is changing every day
3. Social media makes it easy for seeds of doubt to spread
4. They’ve never seen anything like this in terms of the scale of people having to make personal sacrifices for the greater good of humanity (including for the greater good of themselves)

This is why it’s also important that we continue to discuss this as openly as possible and try to share legit information and reasons for the sacrifices. Though pretty soon, unfortunately, I don’t think many more people are going to need much convincing.

Good apology, dg. But what if I stock up on TP for reasons unrelated to the coronavirus?
