Man, I'd rob a stagecoach with HER, anytime!
I didn't pick this picture above for the hottie. I had meant to show reality, such as what was discussed in I'm not "Lovin' It". You work with the pictures you got, though.
Before I get to the one point of this post, let me just put some observations out there from my traveling lately. The airline terminals, the parts of them that are open, that is, are quite a bit fuller than they were 2 weeks back. In one concourse, it looked like back to normal. 75% of the people were wearing face masks. In another, more empty, concourse, fewer people had them on, maybe 50%. Common sense works. Who knew?
I bring this up to also relate that the airline I flew with required the wearing of face masks on the plane. However, you've got to eat those delicious snacks and drink some water somehow. This creates a situation of plausible deniability, in which I take the mask off, as I am in the middle of my snack .. for an indeterminate amount of time.
At the sandwich shop, to get to the point here, I ran into the fact that it is not so easy to really understand everyone talking through these masks. That goes for both the thin hospital type, the thicker "mouth diapers" or even the bandana types, such as on the large-breasted cashier up top. "What was that- put your hands where I can see em?"
What happens is that one has to take the face mask off to be understood. It was no ghost town anymore with the crowded concourse, so, here you go: "Does that come with onions?" "Nmmmmm, mask breathing ... static". "What?" He takes his mask off: "No, you can have this, this, 2 kinds of mustard..." I take my mask off, "Yeah, lettuce, tomato, spicy mustard. Thanks." How many COVID-19 germs went back and forth is not known to me at this point, but I wanted to make sure that the sandwich didn't have any damn onions.
The stupidity is not in what individuals have been doing to get along. The stupidity is in the charade that we have to go through.
