There’s no doubt that the pandemic changed things forever. While some things have returned to normal, a recent online discussion reveals what hasn’t.
The Cost of Living
Home prices skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have still yet to recover, thanks to a housing shortage. It’s simple supply and demand: many people want to own a home, but there aren’t enough houses on the market.
Used Car Prices
Housing isn’t the only thing in high demand. Used car prices have also skyrocketed thanks to a lack of available supply. It was unheard of to pay over $10,000 for a car with over 150,000 miles on it. Today, it’s unfortunately pretty commonplace.
With the world on lockdown, travel and vacationing was nonexistent. As things have opened back up, airlines are more expensive than ever. It’s as if they’re trying to recoup lost profits.
Places Being Open 24 Hours
The days of McDonald’s and Wal-Mart being open 24 hours seem to be a thing of the past. If you’re looking for a bite to eat at 3 AM, or if you need some groceries, it’ll have to wait.
Tipping Non-Tipped Employees
Tipping culture is already a controversial thing in the United States. Recently, however, it feels like every card reader is asking people for a tip, even if they’re in a department store!
Scheduling A Doctor’s Appointment
This one shouldn’t be a shock: Doctors are busier than ever following a global pandemic. It doesn’t make it less aggravating, though!
The Way People Behave
Following the pandemic, it felt like people forgot how to act in public. More and more reports of unhinged behavior are being reported. It’s as if people forgot how to act in public!
Fewer people are attending school these days due to a variety of factors. Parents feel like their children are no longer safe in schools. I can’t say that I blame them.
There’s no denying it: inflation has caused the cost of everything to rise following COVID-19. Groceries, gas, clothing; everything is more expensive these days.
It turns out that a restaurant whose business model revolves around hundreds of people interacting with open dishes of food may not be the best idea following a global pandemic. While buffets still exist, they’re far less common these days.
People’s Mental Health
From a lack of concept of time to just living the “new normal,” everyone’s sanity has suffered. This is a new way of living, and some people are struggling to cope with it.
