    This morning, we as in the spouse and I were at Food Lion

    This morning, we as in the spouse and I were at Food Lion (Super Market Chain). So I'm in aisle and notice lady struggling to get an item off the top shelf. So I reach up and get the Item (a nine roll pack of toilet paper). The lady goes nuts and strikes me with her handbag. I place the item in her cart. She is now beside herself in a state of embarrassment. She starts to apologize. I interrupt her and say an apology is not necessary.

    Apparently it doesn't take much to trip someone's wire!

    Sometimes it helps to ask the person if you can reach that thing for her. Just sayin'...

    Due to the current status quo I have observed that people are noticeably more on edge than normal. Here lately I have had a heightened situational awareness to watch for anything questionable from anyone around me.

    Just a misunderstanding.

    With all the hoarding of TP going on, she likely was running short and happy to find some and then along comes this guy trying to take it from her!

    People are on edge, mainly due to all the conflicting information out there and the whole quarantine thing.

    Did you sneak a grab on the way up?

    With how rude and on edge people have been, people are shocked by kind deeds.

    If the TP situation there is anything like here (sell out as soon as stocked) then she probably thought you were trying to take it and then was embarrassed when she realized you were just helping.

    Wrong word, brother. It's, "Did you sneak an UNCLE JOE on the way up?"

    And it is something to be very thankful for that you didn't run across Mrs OldChap. She is always armed!

    You missed your chance. Once she went off on you needlessly, you should have grabbed the toilet paper from her cart, put it in yours, and said, "A pox upon thee, m'lady. Verily, thou hast wrought mine scorn upon thine countenance."

    To a degree you are correct. We boarder a recreation area, thus we are exposed to people with differing behavior patterns. The stay in place orders have to a degree caused a certain amount civil disorder.
