Painters, gardeners, lawn peeps, wood workers, concrete cutters, miners, loggers, construction workers, body shop workers, folks spraying herbicides and insecticides... All wearing masks because they’re scared to death of catching the Rona. What a bunch of idiots.
The mask has become a social thing. A "look I'm participating". It's the human equivalent of the dogs' rolling on their back and urinating to signal subordinance. I'm not speaking of people who are wearing a mask out of genuine concern, but rather those wearing them for social identification. For instance last night a friend of mine attended a drinking social where her and her friends sat around together mask-less while making masks so they could post their efforts to Facebook. Or like some other chicks I know who while at a local gathering, all went outside and arranged their trucks in a circle with them each sitting alone on their respective tailgates, all so they could pose for a "look we're social distancing" photo. They went right back to sitting with / on each other immediately after the photo op.
I get a kick out of the bicyclists each morning. Riding alone, in a semi-rural area, no one else around - and wearing a mask. What a bunch of goofballs.
When I do a grocery pickup I wear a mask. I want to be breathing your **** as much as you want to breathe mine. I leave it on till I get home on the off chance that something wafts off the packaging ( a van so it's in the same compartment I am)
Once home, after spritzing the groceries with dilute h202, I umask.
When I work out I have mask with me, but I only wear it if I'm crossing paths with someone out of courtesy.
After everyone gets the Rona (and you will), we'll have survivor's support groups on Facebook, showing their antibody status with apparel and tattoos. It'll be a badge of honor by this time next year to catch the cold.
Mask is to protect other people from you when you cough, or sneeze, or project bodily fluid in any other manner. If you share cars or give people rides, then it's just being courteous.
Please, please wash your hands after you take a poop and before touching other things. I'm begging because some of you are making me think that the number of people who don't wash their hands are higher than I initially thought.
