So I understand wearing a mask, I have one and wear one when I need to, and I respect people that feel the need to wear them as well.
But they can make your face sweat, breathing more laborious, and feel less comfortable, so why would you wear one when it is unnecessary.

I refer to people who are alone in their cars with the windows rolled up and the air conditioning on, wearing a mask while driving.
Is the fear that strong, imagine living with fear that strong in your life, it's just sad.

Just cuz you’re paranoid — doesn’t mean it won’t get ya.

Guess these morons are afraid of giving the virus to themselves. 😂

Good little sheeple.

They might be ride share, Uber or Lyft, etc. drivers.

I noticed this as well, until I saw a few and looked closer, and there was a person in the back. And then yes, there are those who are just that paranoid. But if that makes them comfortable then can we really judge?

We were working in a major city last week. We used to live there for a few years when my husband got tired of commuting. We visit there occasionally to do work. We stay in an area that would be considered a middle to upper middle class, mostly business people, and a large number in this part of town are black.

I could not believe the number of people I saw driving alone with mask or mask and gloves on!!!!

My husband made the same comment about them possibly being drivers, but these were people going to work, to the grocery, to pick up pizza. I have been walking several miles a day and ....I watched them. Sitting at a light you would see 2-4 cars with 1 person in them and mask on.

Idk, it really drove home how paranoid A LOT of people are! I'm glad I'm not the only one perplexed by it.

Hate to burst the bubble but it's not always paranoia.
If you're running errands it's sometimes just easier to remain geared up cause you're just store hopping. I've been guilty of it myself. But I agree it must look crazy to other people.

Was gonna say the same thing.
The normal stores I visit are close together, and sometimes I just leave the mask on for a one mile drive to the next stop.

I never wear a mask but sport a very jaunty neckerchief that I can pull up over my mouth and nose when in public.

However, I do have a friend that contracted covid19, never wore a mask and has now been in ICU for two weeks, lost his ability to speak or make coherent sentences; it has drastically affected his mental acuity and may have infected his wife and kid.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes....How much risk are you willing to take?

Here is the pathetic part, every mask I see people wearing are types of masks that actually protect other people, not themselves.
So if there is 2 people in the car, good call, but if you are all alone, it's utterly and totally an exercise in futility.
I sell safety masks at my job so I know a little about this, including what the hospitals told us.

If you are doing it for comfort and saved time, I pull mine down so the top is resting on my chin, much more comfortable and fast to deal with.
Also it's laughable to try and wear one at a restaurant and then eat in, in their dining room.

The mask has obviously become a fashion/political statement on my side of town. It is the perfect accessory to top off sagging britches and hooded sweatshirts.

Well said. A few threads talking about financial Armageddon coming just before or after xmas this year. We're being conditioned to accept lockdowns. No running to the shops, no bank runs.

We're using the army to assist police in borders between the States here in Australia. Getting us used to the military on the streets.

Pretty crazy - I don't think its going to end well.

Herded like sheep this is the new normal.

Lol!!!!

The masks that the majority are wearing are up and down...... on and off

(more often than a hookers panties
) Handled by hands that have touched

all manner of things, I recon they are more germ laden than anything?

I put them in the same catergory as the long forgotten *cotton handkerchiefs*

of days long gone by .......eweee

That's probably a realistic approach to the whole thing, I'm not exactly Zorro orientated either, but, now, here we are required to wear one inside and as the OP says, a mask can give people difficulty breathing, but the irony there is that having the AC on in the cabin regard to the COVID-19...is something else.

If on recirculating, well then, the car is recirculating the cabin air, and probably cools quicker and colder), if on fresh air, well you get fresh air, hopefully through built in filters in the car though. Either way, it's not a protection from the virus per se, if someone in the car is carrying the virus, unannounced or not known, or if the fresh air itself is compromised in some way, and there's no easy answer to that...perhaps even, one good reason that car interiors are kept really clean as possible, all the time.
People just need to use their common and make their minds up...that's not easy either.

I wear one. While I'm driving to work. I find if I leave the house without wearing it I may forget the mask at home.

Wearing the masks when it's hot and humid is awful. The cooling back where I normally work in Electronics doesn't work well, so it's unbearably hot. Breathing in that hot, damp air feels really bad.

The other day, I starting breathing faster to get more air in, that sucked the material of the mask right against my nostrils which made it impossible to breath, so I gasped and started to feel panicked. It was a vicious cycle which kept on all damn day. By the end of it, I had a monster of a headache and felt like crap. I hate it.

There is no way in heck I'm wearing a mask when I don't have to. The minute I step into the backroom of the store, that thing is ripped off. No one else is wearing theirs out of customer's sight either.

Here's my solution:



I made my own out of a piece of guitar amp grill cloth. It looks pretty substantial but obstructs about as good as chicken wire. It keeps the Karens off my back and lets me go about my business.

Never even noticed or cared, not my business what people do with their time
Don’t even think it’s worth concerning myself
