I was out and about, doing my long list of backed up errands – when I drove into the parking lot of a local store that offers a senior discount the last Wednesday of the month. I pulled in and saw a group of middle-aged mask-wearing women, who spotted me and started following my van and yelling. What the frig did I do now? Apparently, they jumped to the conclusion, that just because I wasn\’t wearing my mask in my vehicle that I was going to get out without one and enter the store. I am stubborn and because they were totally wrong I wasn\’t going to try and explain myself to them. They were fighting mad. The deal is, I don\’t wear my mask inside my own vehicle. I put it on before I get out of my van. They just assumed.
Now, I wasn\’t going to make an issue out of it – I was by myself, I\’m 66 years old and I didn\’t feel I needed to prove my worthiness to them. I can mix it up just like they can – it just takes me longer to get really pissed off and when I do, I never feel good about myself afterward.
So I left and called the management – They did nothing saying they have a right to protest. No, they were harassing me in my van – following me – at one time I thought they were going to hit my van. It scared me.
In today\’s local news, a group threatened our county supervisors:
“We\’re not going to be peaceful much longer. You either fight with us, or you fight against us,”
You can\’t even go out and do your errands without a fight.
I wear a mask in the stores because it is required. I try not to over-think it. That\’s it – PERIOD.
