Mood On Monday, Putting The Outside World In Time Out

Thoughts

Intro. My continuing efforts to document the moment. [Whither?]

Awareness of the outside world. Not everyone is able to stay home. I can, so I do. Although, the outside world is making that decision easier every time we go out. But I get ahead of myself.

Let’s say you are a person who believes there is a global pandemic afoot. Let’s say you need cat litter. Let’s say you go to the cat litter store.

Preventative Measures
Sign on the door.

Social distance markers on the floor.

Acrylic barrier for cashier.

What Virus?
Once again, you are the only customer wearing a mask.

Cashier is not wearing a mask. Not interested? Not mandated by corporate HQ? Not provided by corporate HQ?

As you check out, the customer behind you blows past the social distance marker, drops stuff on the counter, and stands right up in your space.

Color Me Baffled
Do they think the pandemic is not happening? Do they think the pandemic is not happening to them?

It’s enough to make one pull up the drawbridge and fill the moat with alligators.

What’s it like in your area? Are you in agreement with the attitudes around you? Are you out of step?

Stay safe. Stay sane.

  1. We Brits do love a good queue, but I hear tell of full beaches and disregarded one-way shopping. Haven’t seen it for myself though as I’m not going anywhere unnecessary yet (and maybe will never again…I cannot imagine what would entice me).

  2. Too many people going wrong way down grocery store aisles. Haven’t been much anywhere else, tho am starting to get out to docs and vets. Real problem when they want you to call to let them know you’ve arrived, as I still don’t have a phone. My grocery store won’t let anyone in without a mask. People seem to be pretty good about it as far as I can see. There are always jerks who think they’re invulnerable. Hey, it’s not kyptonite, what’s the big deal?

  3. You don’t want to get me started. I’m very likely to offend pretty much everyone. Let’s just say we’ve been seriously had with all this shut-down nonsense and “pandemic” protocols. I’ll leave it at that. Oh, as for wearing masks? You do you, I’ll do me. And no, that does not mean I don’t “care about” you. It means I’m an adult who knows that your health is 1. None of my business and, 2. Not MY job. And vice verse.
