Today when I went to Lowe’s garden center I’m checking out. It’s hotter than hell. This nice woman was the cashier, she was doing her duty of all masked up. The lady behind me was also wearing a surgical mask and the dude behind her was wearing his “ go Clemson “ cloth mask. Myself, no mask.
The guy seemed to be agitated that I wasn’t wearing one but didn’t engage in his opinion. So I ask the cashier (that was wearing a sticker or patch she was a veteran.) I said, "man you musta did something pretty bad to get stuck out here in the blazing heat 🔥🔥 all day and have to wear that mask?"
She replies, "Yes it’s awful, I can’t breathe with it on, but I can take it off if no customers are at my register. Then she says this ... “I was full time employee and since this mask wearing is mandatory to work here, I told them I would only work part time if I have to wear this mask. I told them I’d quit.“
Then, she says to me she was a nurse in the military and it’s not “HEALTHY “ to be breathing in your own carbon dioxide,. nor does a mask protect you from a virus." BINGO!
Then, the lady behind me says she has trouble breathing, too.
So I told both of them, "I am not going to wear one no matter what, I’m not endangering my health.
When I woke up this morning, I didn’t wake up in Venezuela. I woke up in AMERICA! The land of the FREE!
