To mask or not to mask.... here is some of the answer.....

Even a rather dense judge would want to know why you put a target on the outside of your front fence rather than in your back yard if you did not want others using it.

So I was in a few stores today. I wore my mask as much as possible. Periodically, I had to slide it down in order to get a full breath. I do not know if anyone saw this or cared about it if they did see me doing this. Breathing is good! I decided that from now on, if I notice that someone is adjusting their mask or removing it for a few seconds, I will hope they are getting more breath, clearing their eyeglass lenses, or letting sweat dry.. I absolutely will not report them, shade them, or confront them.

It is surprising that a group of well-educated folks would balk at the fact that some people experience unwanted side effects of wearing masks and even throw shade at this medical concern and people who experience it. Live and learn...

If you are unable to discriminate between annoyance with those totally disrespectful of their own health and safety (as well as the health and safety of others) and those who try to respectfully find ways to comply then the issue is 100% yours. "I can't" and "I won't" are very different from "I try to find ways to make it work as best I can."

3 things:

1. Yesterday, I was reminded that some people read lips. They cannot read masked lips.
2. The letter writer from the opening post had another entry in op-ed. The title is 'Attempted refutations of ineffectiveness of masks fail' and if you click the link and scroll down the page, you can find what he said next, including his commentary regarding journal editors who did not permit revision.
3. Here is the link to this week's letter: [www.laramieboomerang.com]

Loved that!

I also loved a mask idea... teachers want their students to see their faces and get the most from communications. The blurb showed a clear plastic mask (looked stiff and not likely to collapse on the face!) with black binding. So now I am trying to find this one again. Is it a prototype? Still in the design stage? ?

Good info to know. I’ve wondered about the masks with exhalation valves. Now I know that they’re not recommended by the CDC.
So, I'm checking out at the grocery store. Not a shop. A customer comes in and the cashier reminds him to put on his mask. "I'm not trying to get killed by these people," she mutters from under the mask that she wears only on her mouth. SMH

I think they need to put up a page somewhere that shames the people that will not wear a mask. Like that would do any good you know that muckenburg would take it down right away so would the other major ones. so it is mute anyway.
No shaming. Ever.

Thank you.

Yeah. Some still don't know how to wear a mask. Or, they have a condition maybe where the exposed nose helps them breathe better.

And, for others, it can be just a slipped mask. I was talking to my pharmacy associate and her mask slipped partially below her nostrils. I was staring at it and I think she felt I was staring and realized her mask was down. She fixed it. I stopped staring. smiling smiley

It could make some even more defiant.

Sadly, Americans are at war over this issue.

I've been really depressed lately. This country is falling apart. sad smiley Not just from COVID...but so many other things.
Saw a disturbing blurb. Supposedly, a US Vet was told they could not wear an American flag mask at their grocery store job. They quit.

If this happened and this is real news, re-education should... start... N O W !

I was doing a shop, and the associate's mask would not stay up...he was continually fiddling with it. In the report I gave him credit for wearing one, but commented that he had an issue through no fault of his own.

a.) There are also those who wear the "useless" face shields where the bottom is completely exposed to air.

I bought some of those, but would only wear them in combination with a traditional mask.

We need mask education. Actually, my very first two times, I forgot to "stretch" them to cover my nose and chin properly. People looked at me too! They might have felt mine wasn't used properly. You have to stretch those masks (but don't break them either, lol)!

b.) And there is another variant. The person who wears their mask properly, but pulls it down to talk! I was at my doctor's office and the front-desk attendant did this. I was appalled. Yes, her voice is muffled, but I could hear it. Wish she'd kept her mask up and not done that to talk. Defeats the purpose of a mask!
