"I am not political. I'm an ice cream store,"

I am an uncomfortable "temporary" office covered in Legos.

I was told by Farkers that you weren't supposed to call the cops on people because it could be lethal.

Just wear a damn mask for the few minutes it takes to get your ice cream.

I really do not understand these folks who think that being required to wear a mask is somehow an infringement on their civil rights. Even if you don't think they do any good, just put the damn thing on and give everyone the benefit of the doubt.  We might even thank you for your consideration.

Then you can go home, take off your mask and polish your guns or whatever.

Its a sign of a child to be self centered. Its a sign of an adult to think about others. How is it that so much of America is so childish?

The sad thing is these are these kids neighbors, their friends parents and their parents friends yelling, screaming and cursing at them. These kids will probably never look at this community the same

Got tires on Saturday for my car. While I was paying a guy came in without mask and stood next to me. The manager told him to mask up or leave. He then proceeded to announce he did not fight in Vietnam to be told what to do. Manager rolls up sleeves and showed off Marine tats and said, "I followed orders to go to Iraq when I knew there were no WMD. You can do the same. WE FOLLOW ORDERS." Guy stormed off mumbling. I thanked the manager for his service and he just shook his head and said why are most of you white guys farking nuts.

Screaming at a clerk over a mask policy makes as much sense at screaming at the gas station clerk because of the gas tax

Then how can I tell all my friends that I think this is a big hoax, i never wear a mask and I never even got the sniffles. This is just some big conspiracy to bring down Trump!

Maskholes are trying to "make a point", not be reasonable.

The point appears to be "I'm a stupid and easily led sheep"

They seem to be wearing masks but not gloves while they handle the food and fiddle with their masks

Personally, I always feel better after yelling at underpaid teenagers about things they do not control.  Makes me feel like a MAN!!

But seriously why are so many people dicks about it.  I just don't get it.  Yelling at teenagers is a weak move.  If you can't handle it don't go out.  Simple.  Really simple.

I'm okay with a few MAGAts getting shot because of their raging assholery.

Especially on the western side of my state, where all the conservative douchebags are hunkered down and screeching about the mask mandate and Governor Whitmer's "tyranny" that saved their stupid asses.

Actually, with these people I think it becomes reflexive to just push back against every goddamn thing they didn't hear come out of Fat Donny's stupid puckered mouth.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Except you don't have a mask on so your screams are like a fecal plume of coronavirus.

You've never visited the western side of Michigan, I'm guessing.

It's a religious conservative haven. They feel emboldened to be the biggest assholes they can when an Us-vs-Them situation comes up. The rest of the time they practice "polite" racism and sardonic bigotry.

I lived there for 10 years. Worst 10 years of my life.

I haven't seen a lot of people in masks here in OKC.  Seems like business as usual.  The stores are starting to require them, though, so that's good.  They don't enforce it, though, so that's not so good.

Of course, last time I was outside was two weeks ago...and that's a century in these times.  My daughter is an essential worker, though, so she tells me stories of the outside and it seems the same.

It's always been this way; it just took a goddamned pandemic and the threat of literal death to finally get others to push back.

My cousin, as a child, used to be a biter. He thought it was hilarious to bite people, and he delighted in their reactions. One day, he bit his mother on the leg, as she was chopping vegetable, causing her to nearly lop off a finger.

She took his arm and bit him, not hard enough to break the skin, of course, but hard enough to hurt.

He never bit anyone again after that day.

Because people have no goddamned idea what a "civil right" is, what the Constitution actually says, or how to properly wipe their own asses. We've systematically dismantled education for decades, and now we're aghast that 50+% of our population has no critical thinking skills and can't understand that the morons they listen to on Facebook and Twitter are actively trying to harm us. People are farking dumb... All of us, as a species. One subset is dumber and more prone to manipulation, but rest assured we've all been reduced to talking points and memes.

This country is proper farked. Even if we survive Covid, there's no redemption. We will tear ourselves apart and whatever remains will be demolished by the climate change we've also ignored for decades.

/ Happy Monday, folks!

who is the mask denying idiot who voted against this? Care to share with the class how you don't want to die from CO2 poisoning or how your chiropractor says you don't have to wear one?
 
2020-07-27 9:57:06 AM  
One thing I get from watching how the mild mannered, soft spoken, never insulting Glasgow Scots deal with the virus is to include with the mask and distance talk is BE KIND TO EACH OTHER.

There's an awareness that fragile mental health is a good third of the experience.  How to deal with a dangerous nut case is not taught in ice cream school.

Not that Post should be left out, but this is Traumatic Stress Disorder, up close and personal, and visited upon workers who are even more stressed, because they have responsibilities and more exposure.

Lack of education and training in morality.

My mother was always very consistent about teaching us as kids that we should think before we act, and consider whether what we're about to do is going to affect someone else before we do it.

It's not hard.
 
2020-07-27 9:58:40 AM  
Don't argue with these idiots. Take away the debate about hoaxes, mask effectiveness, etc. Just use five simple words; words that most of them claim to understand... "please respect my property rights".

I was told by President Kuntface that A) Coronavirus was a hoax, B) that it would just disappear on it's own, and C) that the country would be back to normal by Easter 2020.

You're defending yourself. And saving yourself a whole lot of words that person was never going to hear.

There is a pretty strong Democrat presence here now. It isn't so bad. But the surrounding areas are still conservative. Young hipsters have moved downtown GR and changed things pretty significantly. I'm glad to be a small Haven from the maga Bs.

So in other words, you are insincere with regards to any statements about police brutality or reform, because you're fine with violence as long as it impacts "those people".

Good to know.

I've been to food prep places many times where people wore masks way before the pandemic. Nobody complained then.

Thanks Trump.

This is like the fifth ice cream shop teen employees getting abused by angry Trumpers article I've read, and they're all different places.

Do these people just wake up in the morning and think "Feel like yelling at kids, let's get some ice cream!"
