Still Masks 13 August 2020

Mostly people continue to wear masks.

90% of the customers in Lidl, all of them in Morrison's (though only one Morrison's staff member and none in Lidl, even though the places are air-conditioned).

One slightly concerning note: outside Lidl the sign says "please wear a mask", outside Morrison's it's "please be nice to people who have reasons not to wear masks". There's really quite a simple term for people who aren't wearing masks: not welcome in our shop, and you don't even need emergency legislation to back that up. Yes, I'm sorry if you have a problem that means you can't do it (rather than just being a Facebook user soaking in the fallout of the American death cult), but we still don't want your exhaled virus. We offer a home delivery service. If that's too expensive, perhaps you have friends? Neighbours? Meals on Wheels? A special plague-transfer hour at the start of the shopping day?

But no, apparently they want your money more than they value their other customers.
