    So where’s his foul-mouthed girlfriend?

    If you only wear a mask because you HAVE to, you’re part of the problem.

    The pandemic is still going and right now the people that are dying and spreading covid while creating new variants are the idiots that won’t get vaccinated and refused to wear masks in the first place.

    He should have done that, when everyone was wearing a mask. Wig would help also.

    I remarked to a person in a bank, “Who would have thought it would be necessary to wear a mask to go into a bank?” Strange time we live in!

    When he told his crime buddies that he was going to a robbery, they said to get all of their lettuce. He misunderstood.

    STEPHAN REMOVE YOUR EAR PLUGS (FACT) If you have not been completely vaccinated you can get COVID 19 VIRUS and pass it on to your unvaccinated FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND ANY UNVACCINATED PEOPLE YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH. DON’T BE STUPID!!! THE STUPID PEOPLE ARE DYING EVERY DAY!!!

    A person at work that sits near me got COVID and I was not affected (surprised they did not have me go home and quarantine). And this is before I got vaccinated

    Two things. 1, that teller looks like Han Solo. Two, whenever I went to a store during COVID and I had to put on a mask, I felt like I was robbing the place.

    We can only hope that a significant amount of anti-vaxers continue to go mask-less and catch the current contagious variant.

    I’m still wearing a mask in places like stores and gov’t offices because the same people who pissed and moaned about masks in the first place are the ones who will lie about getting vaxxed just to not wear a mask now.

    Weirdest thing happened today! At the BMV, they took a pic of a kid with his mask on….I don’t agree with this…..as soon as he went out the door he took off the mask! All the employees had masks but no requirement for patrons to mask up. There were over 25 people in the small room….Im feeling very uncomfortable about that…who knows who’s not vaccinated? Where they’ve been and with who?

    I still do wear mine more often than not. They’re not required if you’re fully vaccinated, which I am, but people have no way of knowing that, so if I can knock the tension level down even a tiny bit, I’m happy to do so.

    Ahh, for the Good Old Days, when someone wearing a mask was either a Bad Guy intent on perpetrating a crime or the Lone Ranger (or similar masked hero).

    Rat is right. These are confusing times….
