So far I’ve thought of:

Drug addicts that normally shop lift to get money, what will they do?

People living a double life, they’ll have to choose one family to isolate with.

Err that’s all I can think of, but surely there’s more?

I was wondering what would happen to affairs

Oh I got another one, nits! Nits might take a beating.

I think a lot of relationships will end. Not weird particularly but probably be an unusually high amount of divorces/break ups after people have to self isolate with a partner.

I’ve discovered very quickly that lots of people around me also have serious mental health difficulties, including two or three of the girls who used to bully me at school fifteen years ago (inadvertently causing some of my own anxieties) . It feels so odd that the three of us have ‘connected’ via Facebook, and are now desperately trying to support each other through this .

Hopefully burglaries will drop as people at home all the time?

Police not having to deal with drunken twats at pub chucking out time?

How will people carry on affairs?
How will trendy/woke eaters cope?
How will CF cope without parking inappropriately?
Will CF still book holidays for when we finally get back to school?

People will have higher hygiene standards. Younger DC especially as they will grow up with it?

Lots of babies in 9 months time x

Wonder if the STD rates will go up when it ends and online dating gets a real hammering 🤣😂

OhMy05 Sun 22-Mar-20 21:18:06

Maybe people will take stock of just how many clothes we all own (and not buy so much in future).....I’ve been wondering where I’ll buy undies if I ever needed some new pairs of knickers

Everyone will grow their hair long whether by choice or not!

The80sweregreat Sun 22-Mar-20 21:19:36

Babies, divorce, more jealousy ( the public sector get paid but others don't causing more nastiness )
Riots.
It's a mess and China need to step up and give other countries some money

Waterloosunsets Sun 22-Mar-20 21:19:36

Everyone will have really clean houses and tidy gardens

Children in abusive homes have no escape. Same for adults in abusive relationships.

I actual can't get that out of my head. Not going to lie I prefer yours OP!

The80sweregreat Sun 22-Mar-20 21:21:33

The drug dealers might clean up!
Alcohol dependency will rocket.
More mental heath concerns. sad

TheReluctantCountess Sun 22-Mar-20 21:21:49

Maybe we’ll all get so used to shopping online that we won’t use shops so much after this.

NotFattyBomBom Sun 22-Mar-20 21:22:41

I was thinking about haircuts last night. I have 3 DSs who are always short back and sides as is DH. We have clippers. Thankfully we have time to practice as I doubt schools will be back before September. DS3 kind of likes the idea of growing a mullet though grin.

The80sweregreat Sun 22-Mar-20 21:23:38

Debenhams is doomed. It's sad for the workers. More unemployment is a scary thought and as the over 60s will survive this they will become victims as people will just be jealous. More divide and rule.
More crime.

Sarahandco Sun 22-Mar-20 21:25:11

What will happen to heroin addicts if they can't get supplied?

NotFattyBomBom Sun 22-Mar-20 21:26:04

Definite concern about people drinking at home with DC about and little intervention as it may not be noticed due to self isolation sad.

Ditto child abuse due to escalating MH issues.

Siameasy Sun 22-Mar-20 21:26:06

Will we become a nation of outdoor sporting fanatics? I have seen SO MANY groups of runners out
I’ve felt my appetite decrease due to anxiety and wondering if I will end up thinner or end up moving less and there fore flabbier

dudsville Sun 22-Mar-20 21:26:55

Simpler living! Why are we running about all the time, I've taken actual naps this weekend.

The80sweregreat Sun 22-Mar-20 21:26:54

Unemployment figures will rise hugely.
This is a real worry.
More public sector workers though?
Maybe a more socialist mentality? Maybe not though after this weekend! Who knows?
I'm dreading more disease. That could happen.

Increase in reusable options. Reusable nappies and san pro sales have gone through the roof already! 😁
