WalMart employees not using masks correctly


Recommended Posts

Expats who go around getting into confrontations with the locals sooner or later do not have a good experience from that behavior.

It's a difficult disease, not the end of the world, that is best handled with good personal risk management.  Rather like crime.  It is better to avoid criminals than to go around trying to correct their behavior.  No doubt there are studies out there (there's a study for everything these days) that prove this is likely to get one killed.

It is also not a religion though some of the posters here seem to hold it as such.  You can always spot this by the fervent, judgmental, demanding language.

:D

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.

Methinks that you would be advised to do a little research to find out the meaning of the word "bigotry".

Getting back to original post.  Send a complaint (be nice) to US headquarters and Mexico headquarters and be sure to explain why you won't come back as that usually gets results.

Methinks getting hung up on one word when the intent was clear is a bit anal, but point made. Feel free to substitute it with venom, if it'll help you sleep at night.

I sure hope you are making a joke, Upfront. I would hate to see anyone wearing a swasticke mask.

It is not a joke, Pete. There is video of the couple both proudly strutting their home made masks. The woman said they are protesting the socialist order about masks. There is no arguing with stupid.

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.

In there today,. All employees wearing shields but not all with masks correctly placed.  I have never seen so many stockers!  They were taking everything out of the dairy cooler in the back. Why,I don't know!  Every isles was crowded with stockers and boxes.  It was like they brought in a bus load of employees from Guad. To stock shelves .  I got in and out asap

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?

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.

Your points and analogies are absolutely excellent.

I was there today (7-30-2020) and some WM employees were making less than halfhearted shows or having a mask somewhere around their faces.

Just saw a video from Canada where a doctor was asked about whether it was okay to pull the mask down around your chin or neck when you don't need to wear it. He said that's one of the most dangerous things you could do-, which seems pretty self-evident to me, yet I see it all the time, even with those who think they are taking good precautions. If the mask has filtered any viral material, it's now on the outside of your mask, which is now likely touching your chin or neck. 

Take the mask off by the elastic if you don't need to wear one right away again, put it in a bag to be washed, clean your hands and put on a fresh mask next time. I can't tell you how many people I've seen take the mask off, stuff it in their pocket, at which point you've contaminated your hands and your pocket, then pull it out of their pocket and put it back on again. Now, if there was any virus on the mask, you're breathing it in.

It occurred to me that a very good way to teach people mask safety would be to smear something on the outside of the mask, like jam or how about dog poo, and pretend that's virus particles. Then see if anyone thinks it's a good idea to stuff it in their pocket, or pull it down around their chin, or touch the outside of the mask and then handle something else without washing your hands.
