I Hate Anti-vaxxers but I also hate militant mask wearers

I know it sounds contradictory but I hate anti vaxxers when they confront me in shops or even in the street for wearing a mask but I also find people who flinch when you stand near them even though you are wearing a mask also annoying and also people who jump on me to wear a mask even when I am taking it out of my pocket to put a mask on. Please don't make this pandemic even more unpleasant than it already is.

There are extremists on both sides. Don’t let them push you around mentally. Social media fasting certainly helps. If you can’t put the phone down… try changing your screens to ‘grayscale’ for the majority of the day. At the end of the day, have a little dessert. Our minds/guts can only process so much colour/information… people have been overwhelmed with so much information they can digest it. Processed food is evil… why isn’t hacky sensationalist journalism considered the same?

It’s really hard now because they relaxed the rules too soon and many of the stores removed all the social distancing protocol. Now the mandates are back but people are confused about the whole thing. The new variants are far more contagious than the original virus was, so really, the social distancing is even more important than it was, but the majority of us just ignore it now. I think the confusion is completely because of the mixed messages we’ve been getting from the experts, but I also understand that they’re learning as they go too. This is uncharted territory, and we all just need to be patient and flexible as we deal with it.

I can't count how many times I've driven off and forgotten to remove the mask for a few minutes.

I understand why it looks ridiculous to you when you see people driving alone with a mask on. I have done this. Here is why:

The less you remove and replace and touch your mask, the less risk you take and the less you need to clean your hands. If I go out to shop in a number of different locations, I leave my mask on the whole time. I put it on when I leave home and remove it when I return home. In between, NO TOUCHY-TOUCHY. I hope that helps you feel less attacked by people living their own lives the way they want. Incidentally, I support people's right not to vax if they so choose because it has individual consequences. Masking up is different because it is about respecting other people.

Stay healthy.

But I love the health & anonymity benefits and will keep using masks even after the pandemic is over.

Why is your mask still in your pocket when you're somewhere you should be wearing it?
