I went to the grocery store this morning. Just to grab a prescription and back. On my walk out of the store a lady about 60 years old was walking in through the automatic doors. She looked up at me, saw me not wearing a mask, and nearly stumbled back. Then she crouched over toward the carts and moved as far away from me as she could. You'd think I was a dragon blowing flames at her!
I found it was funny! I laughed out loud at her. I guess she was going to have a difficult time in our grocery store because masks are not enforced here, and there were plenty of us in there not wearing. I'd add a smiley here, but they're not wearing masks either so anyone reading this would get infected from those smileys.
And as far as that peeing on one's leg goes, I think that is a poor analogy. Covid germs move about much more like cigarette & "vape" smoke than pee. Vapor particles float in the air. If one walks through a fog of covid germs, I don't believe the mask is going to do much to prevent vapor germs from getting in or out. Not unless it's like one of those WWII gas masks. Now that would work. But when I do wear a mask, it fogs my glasses when I breath out, and clears when I breath in. Am I supposed to believe that covid germs can't make it around my mask? And if I'm carrying (which I'm not), when I breath out, they wouldn't float off in the air that blows past my glasses? I wear a mask when I'm supposed to, just to coddle the germophobes because my opinion is that masks are not very effective. However, if I'm sick, I'll hide away in my basement the required time. But, for my personal health, if I get it, I get it.
I'm sure I'll get flamed for thinking on my own. But, if I'm not sick, how am I am a risk to others? And if I am, and I stay quarantined at home, how am I a risk to others?
