I went into the wine wholesaler again today, where they again asked me at the door if I had a mask with me.
Last time it was a young male, this time a youngish female. I couldn’t be bothered explaining all over again so this time I simply replied,’No’ and walked stern-faced into the shop without giving eye contact. She had no further comment and walked away. If they simply would ask,’Are you able to wear a mask?’, it would be so much easier. As it is, they’re rubbing customers up the wrong way and acting dumb (Tanners Wines). Even Sainsburys now have a long message explaining that ‘many people cannot wear masks, and even though they look and seem healthy, not all health conditions are readily apparent..’. They’ve realised they have to protect non-mask wearers from the numerous vigilantes.
Tell that to the moron who almost assaulted me in the cheese shop a couple of weeks ago. He called the Police accusing me of mask malingering. I was in the cheese shop again today and the shop owner told me that, when the Police came out, they just laughed. I had legged it down a side street before they arrived on her advice. Quite something running away from the Police at my age!! Haven’t had such a thrill since being asked to play for the town’s 4th cricket eleven a couple of summers ago.
