The venn diagram of people who don't put their shopping carts away and people who refuse to wear masks and not go to bars, is a single overlapping circle.

I'm pretty sure he knew that.

Discraft Dad 11-24-2020 01:38 PM

Well I am not refusing to wear a mask, I just sometimes forget it in my car, I am however refusing to go back and get it. I don't go to bars either.

Yes you are. Refusing to walk 60' back to your car to get it IS REFUSING TO WEAR IT. Just for a different dumb reason than most people.

You denounce fascism, yet decry clearly that you don't care about ANYONE but yourself. Let me guess, you are out protesting, that nobody cares about you, yet six steps are simply too much to save a life. That doesn't seem "weird" to you.

Do unto others as you wish, but demand they do unto you, as you demand. I can only assume this is the golden rule you are passing along to your child/children. Now that IS weird.

I think you are confusing fascism and being selfish. Or in my case too lazy to walk back to my car for a mask.

Monocacy 11-24-2020 01:43 PM

I forgot my mask a few times in the early pandemic days. Walked out of the office at the end of the day, reached the lobby, saw someone wearing a mask, thought "Oh crud, I'm an idiot", and scurried back to my office to get my mask.

Now it would feel weird and inconsiderate not to wear a mask inside a business.

I'm way past the point of feeling completely naked without a mask now.

I think mask adherence is easier for us introverts, lol. I kind of enjoy having an excuse to hide behind a mask.

Not to mention now I can mumble things at people in public without them being able to tell!

Ess-dog 11-24-2020 02:11 PM

The vaccine rollout is sure to be fraught with people not wearing masks claiming they were vaccinated.

I like the masks because it obscures the uggos and adds a bit of sexy mystery to the ones that are cute around the mask.

The conflict comes from being introverted and absent-minded.

I did walk into a convenience store without one, due to the latter.

And since my masks live in my car, catching a ride with someone else is an invitation to forget it. (The someone else I caught a ride with, is in my bubble).

I did nearly walk into a grocery store without mine -- again, absent-minded -- but as I was approaching the door a woman walked out, coughing. Don't have to tell me twice.

Fair enough. I have no fear of death either.

Death isn't my only concern. The after effects can be pretty horrible, so I'm also trying to avoid that.

Yeah, this was just on 60 Minutes as well. Doctors can’t figure out why some people have the long term symptoms and they have no effective treatments. This stuff is the biggest reason I’m so cautious.

Unless he is at a youth baseball game.

I don't subscribe to any particular political ideology, but if you feel a need to pigeon hole me have at it.

I understand you are a proponent of forcing people to put shopping carts into corrals in parking lots.
Kinda like interring Japanese Americans simply because. I say, free the shopping carts! (after sanitizing, of course).

Starting out let's just offer it to those over 60 and tell everyone else to be good kids and maybe we'll give it to them in a few months.

A childhood friend of mine is a nurse. I haven't talked to him in a few years. Recently found out he got covid in March. He also has diabetes. He had a covid related stroke and isn't doing well.

This is me giving a middle finger to people who think it's not a big deal or only want to talk about 98% of people survive it, don't be afraid.

Complacency kills. That is not an exaggeration. You may poo poo the risks, to your and your family's detriment.

Sorry about your friend. Hope he can recover fully, and have as few deficits as possible.

Do you think that someone who got vaccinated should wear a mask?

Yes. The vaccines are not perfect.

And people WILL lie.

I tested positive for COVID antibodies x2, back in May. I would never consider going inside anywhere without a mask. I RARELY am outside my home or car, without one on my person. I always try to pull it up or put it on when inside a safe social distance.

Once vaccinated (and the full effectiveness time period has lapsed), in theory, you would no longer be able to spread the virus via respiratory means. I think the right think to do, vaccinated or not, is to wear a mask indoors. I will, most likely through the end of 2021. I will re-evaluate from there.

If masks are the only thing we're doing after the vaccines roll out, I can live with that.

It's how I now avoid people inside who forgot their mask halfway across the parking lot and said F-it.

For a while, I think the right thing will be to wear masks -- if for no other reason than to reassure others, who have no idea of who's vaccinated, and who isn't. Particularly since the mask is such a very minor matter.

Yea, as long as everything else is normal. Wearing a mask is pretty non-intrusive.

But won't have the requisite numbers vaccinated until May 2021 at the earliest. So I don't know about normal. But once the elderly are vaccinated (end of Feb maybe March?) it seems many states will want to loosen any restrictions they may have enacted upon businesses and adjust behind the wave of new cases just like they did with the "re-opening".
