The vast majority of bags I used to see were fine, but yeah, there was a very small percentage that made me want to say "You're going to put your FOOD into that??"

I've been telling people we can't pack their bags "because of all the stuff we have to handle during the day." Makes it sound like we're the ones doing the favour ... so far, it seems to be working.

I have said it before, it is all in how you phrase things.

If they don't, you just started a new fad.

Some Seth Rogen-looking motherfucker came though the checkout line tonight. How did I know what he looked like? Because he was bare-faced. I politely asked him if he could remember to wear a mask the next time he came in, and he didn't fly into a rage like the last guy I asked, but still...Christ's sake.

I've had people nearly begging me for forgiveness because they "forgot their mask". Look, I ain't the Mask Pope. The company doesn't want to strong arm people into wearing one and personally I wouldn't confront people even if they did. Yesterday my coworker said that some lady was wearing a fishnet mask...so, yeah. I had a lady who just covered her mouth with her hand, at least she wasn't paying with cash. Most of all though I'm noticing how many people are walking around with filthy hands. No wonder my own hands are raw from the stupid sanitizer.
I would have a nice day, but I have other things to do.

Customer comes in, no mask. Asks the teller if we have a mask. She goes to our stash and hands him one of our disposable ones. He goes through his whole transaction and doesn't put the mask on until he's leaving. :facepalm:

The maintenance guy just came in and fixed something in my apt. without a mask. I'm sure he was in a hurry and wasn't thinking about it but it makes me nervous that I had to go in the bathroom after he was in there working fast and probably breathing hard in the process. He was min. 6 feet from me practically the whole time but still it's difficult. But I have been to 2 restaurants so far, distanced, because Mom, Bro, and I are house-hunting in different cities and Bro lives 35 miles from us, so we have eaten out a couple of times. I guess I can't really complain because of that. idk; I guess I figure I'll get it eventually. But I don't want to give it to anyone as a carrier. Masks aren't mandated for residences here so it's gray area. Not much I can do about really any of this.

I'm going to vent here. I've got a good friend who is going through pure hell right now. His mom has Alzheimer's. Over the past few weeks she's really gone down hill bad. He finally found out why - she also had suffered a stroke.

Now how does this deal with this thread? He isn't allowed to visit her in the hospital! Because of the situation she's only allowed one visitor - period. So his younger brother - who has power of attorney is the visitor.

It really pisses me off that he can't even see his mom in the hospital! I hope this post isn't crossing the rules, but this is just wrong.

At least I was able to cheer him up with a brewery trip to Iowa on Sunday. It got his mind off the situation, and he felt better.
