It finally happened to me today.

I knew it would eventually, but I was ready. I came out of the grocery store with my mask on and keeping six feet distance to everyone, walked to my car, all the while wearing my mask. A woman was getting out of her car next to me with no mask. As I'm putting my stuff into my car she says, "Let me guess - you're a liberal. Cause that mask ain't gonna do anything for you except make you look stupid." In anticipation of this happening, because I figured it might someday, I already had a response ready. I said "Look, I woke up with a temperature of 102 this morning (I didn't) plus I work around hundreds of people in close quarters (I don’t) so this is for your protection, not mine. But you’ve convinced me. How about I take off the mask and we hug like old friends?" I stepped toward her and acted as if I was taking off my mask. She stepped back away from me and went across to the next row of cars. I followed her, she kept walking away, I chased her, she ran... She fell down. I grabbed her foot. I pulled on her leg, just as I’m pulling yours :-} And seriously folks , wear the mask.

Right. Like no one else could tell from the get-go that your post was bogus. I keep hearing all these ridiculous stories about people being ridiculed and harassed for wearing a mask, but so far no one has actually provided any evidence of it. I wear a mask. I also don’t care what anyone else thinks about that.

Just needed a one armed man

Tip offs:

1. use of "6 feet" instead of two metres (note the correct spelling);
2. use of "ain't" - I do not know anyone in Canada who uses that word (except in a song) and I have lived here for 65 years;
3. use of Fahrenheit degrees for temperature instead of celsius;
4. incorrect use of "anticipation" instead of expectation

Try using American websites instead of trolling Canadian ones.
