First, get your terminology straight. These are zombies you are dealing with, not vampires or werewolves. So put down the garlic and save those silver bullets for another time. Some people try to sprinkle holy water on it. They wont work!
Another important thing to remember is: Don’t go anywhere by yourself. Don’t be a hero. That is one of the fastest ways to turn your body into a zombie hors d’oeuvre. Or pilaf. Actually, zombies prefer their people-meat al dente, but the point is this: Go anywhere by yourself, even if you don’t think there are any zombies around, and you’re toast. Remember, there are always zombies around, waiting to gnaw on your brains. An important sub-rule to this is do not ever utter the words “I’ll be right back.” Trust us, you won’t.
Lastly, wherever you are, make sure you first and foremost seal all the entrances. Whether it be at home or at the mall (zombie apocalypses tend to happen a lot when you’re at the mall for some reason), spend all your time blocking off every possible avenue of ingress or egress. Bonus points if you round up a crazy survivalist to be on your team, who will keep you in freeze-dried spam for at least a decade.
Remember to stick together. The buddy system is very helpful and in a worst-case-scenario situation, you can always find someone annoying to use as a human shield.
