When Waters told her Hill needed to wear a mask as well, she said, it was "like a switch flipped."

That incident made no sense.

Come for the mask cat fight, stay for the white power editorial, I guess?

By ''Do anything for my country" they usually mean ''murder/oppress people i don't like for my country''. Wearing masks is protective of others, something they just can't stand for.

At this point, it should be legal for store owners to enforce their mask policies with a Louisville Slugger.

Or for your higher-class establishments, a Calloway 7-Iron.

You enter and go to your table, 6' from the next table, while wearing a mask, which you keep on until you're served your food. The server wears a mask at all times. This aims to minimize the exposure to anyone who isn't in your group. Not really all that hard to understand, although I suspect you just wanted to make a fairly poorly thought out political point about the 'rioters'.

Wearing a mask is mandatory in Washington state.

She looks a lot like my favorite high school teacher. Not her though, since I graduated in '88, and she was pushing 60 by then. Also, Ms. Beach would never have been such a coont. She was a cool lady, fun class.

I went in for takeout yesterday. They had sheets hanging behind each booth. I guess that will keep droplets from going over the back but not around. I really don't get it. But now that there are so many people inside I'm not comfortable getting takeout anymore.
 
2020-07-07 9:52:02 AM  
Then she took her mask all the way off, put it in her pocket and let me know she was going to spit & cough on me

Where are the terroristic threat charges?

"Hill said no one was going to tell her what to do "

Yep, seems about right for an entitled biatch.

So most states have at least a 50% capacity restrictions which means they can space people out, so the people you're with are probably people you'd be around without wearing a mask anyways, and then the person who you interact with is the server and hostess...  who are wearing masks.

Though, it's not a perfect system.  And most people would prefer it not be the case, but people need to put food on their table and have a roof over their head, so since we aren't able to depend on government to help those people out we have to accept that they need to work.

You also have to wear the mask again if you need to use the bathroom, so you keep your germs to the group you're sitting with.

Which would help a lot with contact-tracing, if that was a thing we were even pretending to do.
 
2020-07-07 9:56:25 AM  
I can understand not wanting to wear a mask. I cannot understand why they feel entitled to enter a privately owned business that requires a mask without one. that is like me walking in the store smoking a cigarette.

Are you trying to imply that we shouldn't wear masks anywhere then?  Because that would be a really stupid conclusion.

If that's not where you were going with that question, I apologize.

I'm starting to believe all of those science fiction writers when they wrote about the collapse of society due to war or disaster. People are becoming unhinged over a simple paper mask worn easily over the nose and mouth. Just think if they had to worry about nuclear winter.

That was about the most unnecessary argument over masks yet -- and between two white folks! Though, the store should have required that all people in there wear masks. A law about that is starting to be enacted here. Admittedly, the aggressive lady did act like like a biatch, pi$$ed off at the world in general.

Here's a view into the mindset of this Republican county in which I find myself, and where this Home Depot is located.

From a letter-to-the-editor in the local paper regarding fliers from the Patriot Front left in driveways after a BLM protest:

"The lead story in the Monday, June 15, Northwest Herald was a distortion of facts that were poorly researched and demeaning to conservative readers. Citing the Southern Poverty Law Center as the authority for characterizing the patriots who placed flyers around Crystal Lake as a "hate group" is laughable. SPLC is itself a hate group."

And this same rag had an editorial when the stay-at-home order was given that "local businesses needed to be supported," though the "economy was sound."

Even with spacing (in this chart there was no spacing), you still have to account for air circulating in the restaurant.
Just order for take-out or delivery.

So this woman was wearing a mask, but took it off to ask the management to make the other people in the store who were not wearing masks wear masks, when another woman wearing a mask asked her to put her mask back on... you know, I think I might have turned around and said 'You're not helping' rather than exploding with rage.

As for the A/C, most buildings here become un-occupiable in summer without it. Good design would be to have the air flow past a UVC lamp.

Outside should be fine. It's indoor spaces where the air just recirculates, that are iffy at best.

I actually view it as the opposite, at least in my area of the Midwest. The type of goods and quality of people I see at Menard's reminds me of a Walmart. Whereas Home Depot (or Lowe's) reminds me more of a Target.
