About that Covid-19…
Me AT GROCERY STORE:
Why is there plastic on the payment keypad?
Cashier: To protect people from Covid.
Me : But isn’t everyone touching the plastic keypad the same way they would the regular keypad?
Cashier: No words. Confused look.
Me : Why don’t you pack the grocery bags anymore?
Cashier : Because of Covid 19 to reduce the spread of catching or spreading the virus.
Me : But a shelf packer took it out of a box and put on the shelf, a few customers might have picked it up and put back deciding they don’t want it, I put it in my cart and then on the conveyer belt, YOU pick it up to scan it.. But putting it in a bag after you scan is risky??
Cashier : No words, confused look.
Me AT DRIVE-THRU
Server: (Holds a tray out the window with a bag of food for logical friend to grab)
Me: Why is my bag of food on a tray?
Server: So I don’t touch your food because of Covid.
Me: Didn’t the cook touch my food? Didn’t the person wrapping my food touch it and then touch it again when placing it in my bag? Didn’t you touch the bag and put it on the tray? Didn’t you touch the tray?
Server: No words. Confused look.
Me in SOCIETY
Society : If you cough or sneeze, do it in your elbow or sleeve.
Also society : Don’t shake hands or hug anyone or you will spread the virus..
To greet people, do an elbow tap instead.
Me : Elbow tap? Isn’t that where you tell people to sneeze or cough? Into their elbow? Now you want people to tap each other with that elbow?
Wouldn’t it be safer to sneeze into elbow and shake hands like we did before Covid?
Me AT RESTAURANT:
Hostess: Ok, I can seat you at this table right here (4 feet away), but I will need you to wear a mask to the table.
Me: What happens when I get to the table?
Hostess: You can take off the mask.
Me: Then it is safe over there?
Me: Are those fans blowing above the table? Is that the air-conditioning I feel? Is the air circulating in here?
Hostess: No words. Confused look.
SOCIETY : You are not allowed to stand and drink at the pub. You have to sit down.
But at the shopping center, you are not allowed to sit down; all the chairs are roped off.
Who thinks this up and gets to make these rules?
Life is hard for logical people right now. We are being raised without the ability to process and execute logic.
