When you go out shopping these days do you choose to wear a mask or not ?
Sure … what have you got to lose ?
You better believe it and it’s going to be like this for some time.
Me too. Just got back from the store, one jerkoff had no mask and sneezing, while his wife walked the whole store on her phone.
After seeing what I saw today I agree .. A long time.
Yes, mask on. Pascal's wager.
Me personally, at this point, I'm not going to wear one. Where I am at, it is triple digits and between the mask and the heat, it is just invitation for me to further handle my mask and face. I'd probably be doing more harm to myself by wearing one than I would be to go without. I figure if I get it, I get it. If I don't, I don't. I'm young and healthy enough that I'm not worried about surviving it.
Everyone else in my life is immune compromised somehow. The last thing I want to do is be "hat guy" that was the selfish idiot that ended up bringing it into one of those environments and got someone else sick...or worse.
I don't even get to see my parents at all now because of all of this crap.
No mask here....we don't go out very often.....wife hikes a couple of hours in the morning with a friend....I walk the dogs twice a day (about 2 miles each walk) and then I play pickleball with 3 other guys at a friends house that has a court in his backyard 3 or 4 days a week...
Otherwise we stay home....
I know.. it’s very tough.
I believe the main point of wearing masks is to protect other people, which helps to protect vulnerable populations. So by wearing a mask you are helping the elderly and those with health problems like diabetes and weak immune systems.
The mask is not for you. It is for others. If you are an asymptomatic carrier, it helps stop you from spreading it to others.
Is it selfishness or a lack of intellectual capacity that prevents people from understanding this?
I do and will. I have no choice, but I would choose to do so. Too many older people in my life to risk me or them.
Yup, for sure.
Im willing to sacrifice my own discomfort if it results in protecting others, particularly our vulnerable populations.
Outside with no one nearby, I don't wear one, such as walking in the woods. But when I go to the store, I wear mask and gloves. I find the gloves remind me that my hands might've picked something up and helps me be a bit more careful. Given how contagious this thing is and how deadly it is for some people, I feel a responsibility to wear one to mitigate the risk for others as well, and I certainly want to mitigate the risk of bringing it home to my family.
And yes, it's a bit uncomfortable, but so is getting COVID-19.
Not so much. There are a few stores that require a mask of some sort. So, there I wear a bandana neck gaiter or a shemagh. I have some N95 masks that I am saving for the day they are demanded. At some point, they become a danger to the user due to reuse, and growing microbes on the inside....They are supposed to be disposed of after one use, but of course, for some while they have been unavailable to mere mortals...and N95 masks are the only ones that might actually protect me from you.
Mask for me.
However, I live in a rural area with 17 total cases in the county. 16 fully recovered. Many here dont wear masks.
I believe, now that we are beginning to open back up again, its more important than ever to be careful.
Eh, I wear them at work when dealing with customers because it's mandatory. Not at the store because I tend to go when not many people are around. Even then I keep my distance.
It's insane how you're instantly labeled as a selfish jerkoff who cares about nobody but himself by people who aren't social distancing, not wearing their masks properly, or wearing gloves touching everything in sight then touching their face.
Seriously. This is not remotely about your level of comfort. It is entirely about protecting other people.
Please show some courtesy and respect for other people. They may NOT be young and healthy, and may NOT be confident they could survive an infection.
