  1. Kyle, try the obvious:  just because someone doesn't agree with a point of view and says as much doesn't make that person a "bozo," "ignorant," or any of the many other slurs that regularly pop up here. The corrections of one posting from another always make me laugh because spelling, grammar, and even proper usage (guilty!) often go by the wayside. The fact that there seems to be a number of folks racing to report the latest mask infraction in the loudest, most self-righteous tones on this board just saddens, and sometimes angers me because they'll bear no consequence for their actions. So if I repeatedly quote the title of a show from a program I admire as a tagline, I'm hurting no one. Does that answer your question, Kyle?

    Just as a poster had the right to correct word usage, so does "she" to respond. As for the tag line at the end, it was a Twilight Zone episode, not a phrase and it's so very appropriate for the self- appointed guardians who are on patrol here. Mainecoons, at the top of this page, expressed it extremely well. My use of the title of a brilliant Twilight Zone episode may be repetitive, but so what? It fits.

  3. Just thought I'd write something positive since there's so much negative going on right now...

    My cell phone died over the weekend, so I went to the TELCEL website to find a new one. I did several comparisons of features and finally decided on my top 3. I went to the Laguna store and was really pleasantly surprised. For those that are concerned, they're VERY good about the distancing, gels, cleanliness, etc. There was no real line to enter (it did get a few before I left) and the guard/rep at the door let me know where to go to get my ticket/number -- of course, I still managed to screw that up, but I'd get lost in a paper sack, so... Anyway, after waiting about 5 or so minutes for my turn, I was called to the counter, asked for "X" style phone and requested the number remain the same. I'm a technodino, so the rep took out my old SIM card and put it in the new phone for me. I paid, she finished setting up the phone and I left a very happy camper with my shiny new toy.

    It was all very well organized and everyone was really helpful.

    Interesting times indeed, when avoiding confrontation takes precedence over public safety measures. Maybe police should start "avoiding confrontation" and ignore drunk drivers weaving all over the road. Or how about WM start avoiding confrontation by letting shoplifters just walk out with whatever they fancy without paying for it.

    Actually, since no one NEEDS to shop at Walmart, I think it's a great idea if all the anti-masker, COVID is a hoax bozos all go shopping there, infect each other to their heart's content, and let the rest of the more intelligent population shop in stores that do their part to safeguard public health.

    Wow, so much bigotry in one post. The police ARE avoiding confrontations, or as much as they can, in the riots on the West Coast..yeah, nothing like watching your flag be burned by the great "thinkers" to really appreciate the true bozos. How about we stop shopping somewhere if we don't like/agree with their practices, but keep our meddling asses out of someone else's business otherwise? I have yet to read anywhere on these boards that anyone thinks Covid is a hoax, yet that's just not enough, is it? If we're not all in lock step with certain views, then the name-calling and suggestions of how to slowly roast oneself in Hell becomes the norm.

    The adults who refuse to wear masks or distance aren't "thinking."

    If you saw a someone driving erratically, weaving all over the place, almost hitting pedestrians and forcing them to jump out of the way, would you have the attitude that the the driver can think for themselves and it's none of your business, or would you consider that he was endangering public safety? It's exactly the same thing.

    Your horse is dead. Stop beating it.

  6. And you go about yours...since it's clear you don't "get" it, let me make this clear:  if you don't feel comfortable around these folks, fine, that's absolutely your right. But to get your knickers in a twist and nearly beat yourself to death in a race to report everyone for their infractions, well... Yes, I think it's being a mask nazi. You're not going to change my mind any more than I am going to change yours. I wear the mask. I respect distances, but I'm not about to report everyone for every single infraction that I see. It's not a case of being ignorant, reckless, or whatever other insult you want to throw. I just happen to believe that adults can think for themselves, but it appears that you don't. And I might add that I'm not telling others what they should do...you are by joining in the choruses of "She's not wearing a mask in 'X' store!!!!!"

  7. 1001x for Renee. Great guy, extremely knowledgeable and will get it done right. Without going into details, for obvious reasons, several other companies here charged us a lot and never came close to eradicating the beasts. FuMiGa got it done right and we've been termite-free ever since.
