Let me be the first one to say while it might have made you feel awesome to stand up for your rights in that moment, it was at the expense of someone else.
I'm all for civil disobedience to a point. Yes, I wear a mask in a store.Let me explain why....
My son is a store manager.
Just the other day someone entered his store without a mask,and got very confrontational about it. He was shouting in the store how everyone were sheep and various other comments we make here on a daily basis. Then it got real ugly. He started filming the staff,the other customers, playing the victim role while he himself started the entire thing. After he was escorted out by security, he posted his account of the incident online from his perspective he was targeted for being an antivaxxer.
I'm not sorry for saying that if you do this,and you take out your freedom of health or expression on an employee who is just trying to do their job,you suck. The rules come from head office which comes from public health and if they are broken no matter whether they make sense or not business are shut down and fined. Then people get annoyed because they can't buy what they want or need and employees are out of a job. Was that your goal? Get someone fired just for kicks? Employees are just as frustrated as customers. Show some damn compassion and I will believe there is some humanity left worth saving.

That is hardly something new to me and doesn't give me much of a high anymore, but I don't comply easily, I stayed civil the whole time. if I hadn't had an appointment, I would have gone the extra mile, and got her fired.
The compassion you talk about is not compassion, it's compliancy, I know my rights, and If she would have known hers, she would know that refusing a company policy that infringes your civil liberties, should not get her fired or she gets a very good settlement...
She choose to behave that way
she was going to sell me a mask when she said she can't sell me anything without a mask... maybe I prevented her getting fired?
I had the impression that she enjoyed her position of authority, and as a compassionate being I made her feel great giving her a platform to act upon that authority until I showed her the flip side... Maybe she didn't know that the way to hell are paved with good intentions....
But you are right, that rant sounds like a major KEVIN moment. Funny how people cheer you on when you KEVIN for their cause.
Now that the State’s executive orders have been lifted, it’s important that our employees and security cameras have a complete and unobstructed view of each individual conducting financial business with us. This includes all areas of the branch, including lobby ATMs.
Please Help Us Out

You know we lived a real cushy life when masks are "fascism".

Arguing with a minimum wage clerk who is bound to follow policy changes nothing.
