A sex scene on the telly when your parents are in the room. ARGH!
Today is Panic Day. Panic Day is the one day of the year that is it okay to give into that emotion that we all try to keep in check. It is okay to feel overwhelmed or upset. It does not mean you are weak and inept if you give into the feeling once and a while. Mark your calendar and hang on tight until you get to Panic Day! Once the day starts you can take the time to just let it all out!
The listeners of The Early Breakfast decided to get their panic-stricken moments off their chests:
- “Hey Paula, the weather, bills, future food trends, future of our little GAA club, the middle age spread…!”
- “A sleeve that rolls down your arm when washing your hands/doing dishes. Panic!”
- “Hi Paula, when you are watching TV with the parents and a sex scene comes on, panic to get the remote!”
- “When the TV programme you're watching goes to an ad and the volume goes from reasonable to incredibly loud without having changed the volume”
- “Unexpected item in bagging area”
- “Did you bring your own bags? Yes. UNEXPECTED ITEM IN THE BAGGING AREA. You just asked! How is that not expected?!”
- “When people respond to your email and spell your name wrong, despite the fact that both my email and the contact associated with my email both have my name spelled correctly, not to mention I signed my name at the end of the email.I respond by thanking them and misspelling their name.”
- “Was on my way home from work last night, had a long drive home, forgot my wallet and my diesel tank went in to the red. Panic!”
- “Good morning Paula. When you make tea and there's no milk in the fridge.”
- “People who step closer to you when you step away from them. You were on top of me, and I’m trying to fix that. Cop on.”
- “Sniffles on a good day but these days, anyone who sniffles near me will be asked if they want a tissue. And hand sanitiser. And tips on how to self-isolate!”
- “Whenever I touch something that feels greasy or wet. Like a utensil, door-handle… UGH, I imagine how sick I’m about to get”
