Everyone has seen at least one movie about the zombie apocalypse and if you’re like me, you are almost hoping it will happen in real life. (The Walking Dead has taught me everything I need to know.)
That being said, not everyone is as prepared as I am to face hordes of the undead. For those people, I have created a list of 7 of the WORST things they could ever do during a zombie apocalypse.
You can thank me later.
1.Do NOT Stay In Your House
Under no circumstances should you stay in your home during a zombie apocalypse. I don’t care what the guy on the news says, your house is not zombie-proof. It was not built with roaming gangs of flesh-eating freaks in mind. Traveling may be a scary idea, but is that worse than being a sitting duck in your own home? May as well just hang a neon “OPEN” sign on your front door and invite them in for a nibble.
2. Do NOT Refuse To Work With A Group
Going it alone is not a survival plan. You are not an expert in all of the things you need to survive, so you need other people. Of course this always comes with the concern of including people who don’t have the best interests of the group at heart, but that’s the risk you have to take if you are going to fight to survive. Panic and crisis don’t always bring out the best in people, and that’s something you’re going to have to deal with. As long as you stay on your toes, you’ll be just fine. I hope.
3. Don’t Panic
Easier said than done, I’m going to tell you to avoid letting panic take over and do your thinking for you. We’ve all seen the movies where the women panic, run away, break a heel and end up zombie chow. Your best option is to freak out for a few seconds and then stuff those feelings deep, deep down into the darkest part of your psyche and don’t bring them up until you’re in a therapist’s office – assuming there are any left. Your survival instincts will kick in and you’ll run on adrenaline, at least in the beginning.
