SFGate talked with some flight attendants. What they learned about the conduct of passengers in these viral times is not pretty. A snippet:
(A flight attendant who requested anonymity) recounted an incident in which a passenger had a mask pulled down her face during boarding. She asked the passenger to put her mask back over her nose and mouth, to which she said the passenger rolled her eyes and then coughed on her. The flight attendant was so taken aback, she said she didn’t do anything.
We are not a civil society.
But we are a society of stupid.
I see persons every day in stores wearing masks pulled down below their noses. I can’t help but wonder, “What the bleeding hell do they think they are accomplishing?”
I note that, in the past weeks, stores that once posted notices that masks for vaccinated visitors are optional have changed that to masks requested (or required) for all.
I find wearing a mask a small inconvenience in the face of the threat of death.
