I went to a kids train set play place yesterday and then Duxford.

Train place I'd say about half were wearing masks but of those almost half had them around their chins? Not sure I understand this.

Duxford I'd say 2/3rds in masks worn properly.

I wore a mask inside as from what I've read it can help others and I don't find it that bad. What did I think of the non mask wearers? Nothing really their choice and they don't need to so that's fine with me.

I found myself without a mask outside Sainsbury's the other day. Looked to the customer service to see if they might have some but nobody to be seen. With wild abandon I proceeded to pick up a few bits, sans masque, feeling quite the rogue. I did get shot a look and a tut by somebody as I shopped, but, well, tough titties, love.

Very kind.

Quite in keeping with my 'Keep calm and carry on' attitude. Unlike the super-nervous, Coronanoia sufferers who will blight our daily lives for years to come. Mark my words.

If you're worried about other people not wearing a mask, why not wear two, one to protect yourself and another to protect you from other people?

Oh, I would have done the same if, in my forgetful years, I'd forgotten to have a mask with me.
I probably wouldn't go trolling for hero points about it though.

You seem rather keen to demonise others who don't agree with your opinion on covid measures. Not like you normally and more what I'd expect from US presidents or woke campaigners.

You're probably right, but sarcasm is oft met with the same.

I'll rein it in.

I have severely diminished lung function from a bout of pneumonia. Sometimes I get out of breath just making a sandwich or standing at the sink doing washing up. That's why I no longer do paint prep that requires a face mask to prevent breathing body filler dust etc.
My idiot doctor who never listens to a fucking word I say keeps trying to put me on a med that I'm deathly allergic to...I literally have to remind him EVERY time I see him.

*IF* you have tested positive... in which case, aren't you supposed to quarantine?

:lol:

What planet are you from? I'm double jabbed and to the best of my knowledge covid free as of last Fri when I did my last test. However I may have it and not know and so to be helpful to others I'll take the precaution of wearing a mask.

However you seem to have a thing about people choosing to wear one, but that's your problem not mine :thumbup:

I'd have to struggle to give even less of a fuck about others wearing a mask... especially the ones who say "I'm going to wear mine every day from now on" They'd probably wear leg irons in case they suddenly went down with polio.
According to *science* (CDC, this week), the chances of someone who is vaccinated, tests positive AND passes it on to someone who isn't vaccinated is so minuscule that the CDC can't even come up with actual numbers, but millions to one was mentioned.

It would be interesting to know the age distribution of infectees.

Does it matter if people aren't going into hospital or dying in large numbers, being vaccinated doesn't stop you catching it, it's supposed to prevent you being badly effected by it because your body knows how to react to the infection.
