Lazy so and so Uber driver who was too lazy to get out of his car to help load a customer's shopping.

Told me, when I pointed out the errors of his ways, that Uber forbid drivers to touch customers belongings. :---) :---) :---)

seems right, i mean you dont shop for them or load the trolley, and they cant expect you carry it upto the 12th floor flat they live in...

When you KNOW youve got something somewhere in the shed but its easier to buy more at £3 off Ebay than risk your life finding what you know is in the shed

People who wear their masks under their chins.

For f***s sake either wear it properly or don't wear it at all. [-(

People who give a scheissen about how, or indeed if, other people are wearing a face mask or not.

Yes, I am a mask denier. About as much use as a chocolate fire guard.

Today a visited a sculpture exhibition at Doddington Hall near Lincoln. If it wasn’t pouring down with rain, it was blowing a gale. An old biddy asked why I wasn’t wearing a mask, (outdoors, in a gale) and asked, nay demanded, that I kept my distance.

In the seventies I worked on a research program by the Royal Navy into NBCD and Warfare. ( Nuclear, Biological and Chemical defence.) It was easy to don chemical defence suits and respirators, the real problem was removing it safely in a cleansing station. This had to be done with the assistance of two others in the cleansing station, and then by being passed on to a secondary area with showers and disinfectant before being passed as cleansed into a third area. Even then, cross contamination was inevitable, and therefore access to the upper decks, (outside) had to be highly restricted. The chances of cross contamination were high.

The above is why face masks in the present situation is pointless, to the point of being dangerous, because people wear them incorrectly, wear them for far to long without changing them, are constantly touching them, taking them off, putting them back on, putting them under their chins, which would contact them with a contaminated surface, (you).
Face coverings are all about making people feel safe, even though they serve no useful purpose in this scenario whatever.
Wear one, or to be really safe wear two or three at once to make yourself feel better. But I will rail against wearing them along with millions of others. We are all going to die! But you won’t live forever if you put on that scabby disposable face mask you’ve had in your pocket for the last six months.

not according to the experts being interviewed on the radio today. :wink:

they will stop you infecting others in crowded or busy locations but no they won't stop you infecting yourself.

Will not stop you infecting others, if used incorrectly, which almost all are.

And if they truly would stop you infecting others, oh wise one, why the need to quarantine?

Is English your first language? I suggest you wake up before posting.

I was using this page to tell everyone I’d been to North Norfolk. ( on holiday) I thought I’d not miss an opportunity to brag, as you do, and have here. :lol:
