Sounds like you're taking it personal, bro. Sorry about your government. They sound like a bunch of assholes.

Here in Florida, they're not gonna put you in jail for not wearing a mask. Some municipalities tried to fine people but our Governor shut that down. Here, the people who insist on wearing a mask at all times, even when it is senseless, and take it upon themselves to be mask police when they have no such authority over us, ARE cowards.
No, not taking it personally, but you might recognize that other people have more to lose by being ostreperous.

I think I've worn a mask a total of 5 times. The majority of that time was when I hung out with my crazy liberal cousins for the holidays. I had to wear a mask on christmas eve at dinner with them. The last time I wore a mask was in January when I went to costco in my dad's liberal town. In the town I live in 3 out of the 4 grocery stores I go to don't mandate it, so I don't bother.

I wear a mask when I go food shopping, to get my hair cut, and in other indoor public places. I don't wear one outside.

I won't be taking the vaccine.

I understand the "slippery slope" argument, but I'm not personally concerned. If we're still being asked to wear one in a year, I may reevaluate.
 
Guys here talking about haircuts and gyms; it'll be while before I see either. The latest "Roadmap" from our Dear Leader mentioned things like schools and socialising, but not a word about hairdressers (this was picked up on in the article).

I'm not sure our dear leader has ever seen a hairdresser judging by the state of his barnet.

Yes this socialising he speaks of I believe he said something about 'picnics in the park' er does he know what the weather is like in March in the UK?

On topic I have worn a mask once when it was clear it wasn't going to be avoidable. I had to take a coach to another city as my car was out of action. Guy refused to let me on the coach without one. I have worn a face shield more times.

When the measures started last year, I went shopping twice with boxers on my face. However, since I need air to breathe, I don't like my face covered.

If I am asked about it, I don't answer anything.
If the store employee says I have to leave the store, I leave. However, I make an effort to have the shopping cart well filled by then. The last time I was thrown out, the store manager was allowed to put these goods back on the shelves.

In another market (only they have decaf pads and chili) I am asked every time at the cash register for my mask. So far I have declared my beard as a mask or said I forgot my mask.
Next time I will answer nothing and take a step back and wait to see what happens. If the person becomes rude, I take a further step back and if it excalates, then I leave. This time, however, the goods are no longer in the shopping cart, but on the conveyor belt. Then someone would have to put it back into the shopping cart and then into the shelves.

The woman at this checkout looks like this: https://gab.com/JKevend/posts/105604431132371197

I can't help but laugh so hard at this. The guy has an N95 mask, which basically YOU CAN'T BREATHE IN for more than several minutes, AND a fabric mask!!! And the dummy went HIKING with that setup

This is so hilarious



As per the topic subject - i wear mask in big box stores, exclusively below my nose. Im not suffocating to death for bill gates' hoax

I wear it for work, wouldn’t have the job if I didn’t.

Besides that, I don’t. When asked at stores a polite “no thanks” and keep walking is all it takes.

Only problem I've had was at Trader Joe’s. Walked in, shopped and was having no problems. Had all my food on the belt. Cashier girl refused to check me out without a mask. I didn’t even have one. She handed me a disposable. I put it on and about 20 seconds later I was getting pissed about the interaction, took it off, dropped the mask on the floor, said “keep your damned groceries then” and walked out.

I wear it almost all the time. I actually like following the rules and be respectful of others.

Following the rules? These "rules" didn't come organically, nor were they justified by rigorous scientific findings.

I have yet to see a rebuttal to Denis Rancourt's work. In which he states that there has been no randomized controlled trials with a verified outcome which has shown that masks prevent airborne illnesses. The RCT's that exist show that there is no relationship between mask usage and laboratory confirmed influenza.

I would have no issue with wearing a mask if it was actually shown evidence that showed a definite proof, but the burden of proof does not lie on me. So I ask you, what makes these "rules" worthy of following, and why?

I have worn normal masks on a few occasions due to my weakness as a human, and I don't fault others likewise, but the thought of actually liking following these dictates is something completely alien and incomprehensible to me.

If i'm not mistaken, Trader Joe's is owned by a german company.
Where I live supermarkets owned by Rewe, also a german company, have a similar modus operandi.
Only instead of offering you a mask at the checkout, they just ask you to leave and sometimes also threaten to call the cops or ban you from the store permanently.
 
Barely at all, unless I'm at work or going to shop. At work, I have to wear one when working with customers, except when I'm behind closed doors with my colleagues. I wear one when getting take-out, or going shopping, as most businesses will deny entry/service.

Aside from that, I don't wear one anywhere else: from outdoors, or driving in the car. I keep some masks in my car's cupholder, in case I have to 'shop', but I do NOT hang them from the mirror - that's too satanic for my taste. Unless I'm going to a public business, I don't wear it.

I stick with a calm and casual script, "do you have a medical license?" if I'm stopped or interrupted by normies when I walk or bike. I'm tempted to buy a Halo Helmet, or something similar, just to demonstrate the sheer stupidity of this rule.

I've actually had more people go full Stasi on me for breaking social distance, than anything. I just ignore them.

Like the french resistance under Nazi occupation, I'm limited to how I resist to this bullshit, because most people truly believe in their heart, this is a legitimate pandemic.

I avoid it as much as I can so I'll only wear it when absolutely mandatory such as indoor public places. Even then I'll keep my nose out. As soon as I come outside the mask comes off.

In church I sit in the sound booth so I take it off there and make sure no one in the congregation sees lol.

A part of me likes the ability to anonymously blend in as a nobody while wearing one, but like I said I avoid properly wearing a mask.

In the mall I try to have a drink in hand so I can keep my mask down but I must look out for security guards and snitches.
 
Honestly, once.

I wore a mask at the Latvian border as I figured it wasn't worth drawing attention to myself.

Other than that, I simply refuse, or wear a comedy full face mask to get served, then take it off, to show what a joke the whole thing is.

If everyone did the same, what could they do? Nothing.

I need a haircut actually, and that's the one place I can't seem to get round it. Still, it's just so pathetic to cuck to this BS, I'll wait to I find an option.

Now that's a good little doggie!

Whatever happen to “Law and Order”, “Blue Lives Matter”, and all the other right-wing phrases that was paraded in the past 5 years by people on the right?

Only when it’s convenient isn’t?

Now all of a sudden you are such a big macho man by defying authority and fighting “tyranny” by not wearing a mask . What a joke.

500,000 of your fellow Americans (not sure if you’re from the US or not, but just assuming) have died from this disease. Please have a little more respect for others, studies have shown that social distancing and wearing masks helps save lives and reducing the risk of transmission. Again, I follow what the science says, not what right wing conspiracy lunatics on the internet say (Alex Jones I’m looking at you).
