Things People Won't Ever Do Again, Once Things Return to "Normal"

How we go about our daily lives has certainly changed a lot in the past year or so, and while we are all anxiously waiting for things to get back to “normal,” it seems a lot of people aren’t necessarily willing to go back to the way things were. 

A new British poll, which could easily translate here, finds:

  • Many folks admit how they do things may be changed forever due to the past year.
  • For example, 80% of people say they don’t plan to share items with other people anymore.
  • 73% believe they will now always maintain a social distance from people they don’t know.
  • 25% don’t know if they can deal with being surrounded by people in a busy bar ever again
  • 19% of people won’t stand close to people while chatting.
  • 20% don’t plan to shake someone’s hand again.
  • 40% say they will be comfortable refusing a hug from someone. 

Other things folks don’t plan on doing once most lockdowns are lifted include:

  • Use someone else’s lip balm
  • Sneak a bite of someone else’s sandwich
  • Use store make-up samples
  • Kiss a stranger on a night out
  • Borrow a swimsuit from someone else
  • Use someone else’s make up
  • Leave the house without hand sanitizer
  • Use someone else's deodorant
  • Get someone to check if your breath smells
  • Go to a buffet-style restaurant

So when do people think things will go back to “normal?”

  • Well, the average person doesn’t expect life to return to normal for 12 months after lockdowns are lifted and vaccines are given to all adults.
