What's with people?

I went out to a restaurant with a friend on the weekend. I choose to continue to wear a mask in spite of the relaxing of restrictions. My friend was bothered by this, they kept bringing up how they are tired of masks and don't feel the need to wear one anymore. Which is fine, if that's what you want to do, it's not what I want to do, at least not right now. The thing that gets me is they were soooo uptight about masks, hand sanitizing and social distancing during the height of the covid crisis. I would get yelled at when I got too close when we were walking together outdoors. What's with that? obsessive rule following? Weird complacency? I still feel nervous about not masking around groups of people, also I liked not getting sick once, with anything, in the last 2 years, I want to keep that trend going, so I mask.

... in depth psychoanalysis, just decide if you want this friend or not. If you are sociable, you have lots of friends. If you do not have lots of friends, it may be that you are both uptight squares!

That sounds annoying

Sounds like your friend might have some control issues. Like you, I have enjoyed being cold-free for two years and intend to keep masking in crowded public places.

Common sense… and common courtesy.

Pandemic? I think of it more as a common sense and common courtesy crisis.

Good on you. Similarly I don't gorge my food and I don't pay heed when anyone remarks that I'm eating too cutley. Nibble nibble.

and it still hasn't been made abundantly clear to the public that disposable and cloth masks only protect other people and you need n95 if you want to protect yourself. Hello Sixth Wave
