My ex is always talking crud about things and over exaggerating. But this time what he said has really gotten my mind buzzing and I can't get it out of my head.
He called to "warn" me that his dad (who works as a civilian and retired military personell oversea's in Afghanistan) said that the military thinks there will be an econocmic collapse soon and that they are all getting prepared. That they are collecting first aid kits, food, etc and storing it in safe locations in their homes (kind of like a bomb shelter or basement).
The ONLY reason this has stuck with me is due to the current economic situation and because of my children. I worry that if I don't heed the warning and prepare (we already have some non-perishable foods and first aid kits in our home obviously, but the way he talked they were collecting lots of food and advanced first aid supplies for extreme emergencies) then I am jeapordizing the safety and health of my children.
He said that the people who were not prepared would be called "zombies" by the military as they would be the one's running around breaking into places, stealing things, attacking people, etc to survive.
Should I heed the warning and start collecting non-perishable foods and extra first aid supplies and other items? We would have to do this slowly as we already work around a small enough budget monthly.
Or should I treat it as the rest of his "information" in the past where he was simply over reacting about everything?
