Man: “Right there, right there, no mask”
Man: “You’re on candid camera. Here we go. I want you to know that your insensitivity is ridiculous. I no longer have grandparents due to this virus because of people like you, who don’t wanna wear a mask in this store!”
Woman: “I’m sorry, but it’s none of your business why I’m not wearing a mask.”
Man: “It’s ridiculous, actually! It’s insensitive and it’s disgusting as a human being for you to show so much privilege to all of these people! There are so many older people in here who have health conditions.”
Woman: “Hey, I’m pregnant, and I’m not just gonna not let myself breathe”
Man: “Oh whoop-dee-doo — congratulations for your pregnancy. It’s ridiculous, and I want you to know that! You’re on candid camera, and I want you to know that! 4k, thanks”-4k referring to the quality of camera resolution.
This is just one of thousands of hostile engagements that arise in public because of the issue of masks. Not only does the mainstream media encourage this by showing non-maskers in a terrible light; they do not say it is wrong for people to be rude to others if it is for the right cause.
According to the Daily Wire, “The grocery store the pair are in [sic] appears to be a Wegmans. On Jan. 26, Wegmans issued a press release on their masking policy. The stores ask all customers to wear a mask but states they will not refuse entrance to those who are not wearing face coverings.”
Customers are required to wear a face covering while shopping in our stores in accordance with applicable local or state mandates. We are focused on complying with these mandates, while keeping the health and safety of our employees and customers a top priority. Short of refusing entrance to our stores, we are doing everything we can to educate our customers and stress the importance of compliance. Anyone who enters our stores without a mask is approached by one of our people and offered a free mask. Through ongoing monitoring, we continue to see 99% compliance with the mask mandates from our customers. While we would love for that to be 100%, we have to balance that 1% with the risks of asking our employees to confront unmasked customers. We thank our customers for doing their part to help keep themselves and others safe.
