Face masks and your excuse

Recommended Posts

So now that face masks are mandatory in shops, what will be your excuse for not wearing one should you visit? I’ve not decided the best way to go about it yet personally and wondering what everyone else is doing. For the sake of getting on with my day and being able to use shops if needed I’m u sure whether to just say I am exempt from wearing one (I am not) or just say I don’t want to and risk getting kicked out and people sending me to the slaughter shouting I am killing the world and rubbish along those lines.

It would appear that if challenged by anyone because you're not wearing a face covering, it is enough to state 'I have an exemption'.

I wonder also how DI travels to the main land now, I doubt he would be wearing a mask! Apologies if a bit off topic, however, I'm just curious how David copes/travels these mask wearing days. Thanks x

The last video I saw he said he wasn’t planning to leave the IoW, he might change his mind of course, but even his upcoming talk in Manchester has been removed from the website.

Maybe he isn’t going to use any excuse then and just state he doesn’t want to do it and doesn’t agree with the madness. It’s the right thing to do, and I agree massively there. I just don’t know what I’ll do in situations where I maybe NEED to use a shop and they refuse me with me stating I just don’t want to. That’s why I’m thinking just use the I’m exempt excuse?

I posted in another thread about the exemption card attached to a lanyard that I put on before I go shopping.

 

It's a near-fluorescent red lanyard saying 'MASK EXEMPT' with the exemption badge attached. While the security guard on the supermarket door is busily examining it I put on my Bill Gates smirk, tilt my head sarcastically (like Bill Gates) and imagine a big fat middle finger in my head.

 

Job done.

Did you start frantically waving your arms about, just like Bill Gates does when he's trying to make a point? 😄

Two of his fingers also drag and wave lower than his other 3 fingers it’s so weird!

I am considering a lanyard with exemption card, but then a big part of me feels so angry at having to pretend to be disabled and wear a badge so I don’t have to conform to absolute stupidity...

i'm actually what you would call a "mouth breather" 😄 -- i breathe mostly from my mouth and not nose -- i'm asthmatic. so if it does become mandatory i'll ring my GP up to see if i can be exempt.

 

yesterday i was all about the town centre and in a bar and there was hardly anyone wearing one. hopefully a sign of things to come that by when it is enforced on 20th august (northern ireland) there is an investigative review into it.

David's got Rose/Icke V coming up, so he will be leaving for London. Apparently he goes by ferry.

GP's have been told not to issue any exemptions.

Isn't that nice of them.

I don't intend to wear mask. I had thought of just asking a staff member first if it was okay for me to shop without one. If anyone challenges me, they will get a mouthful; they can call the cops if they want.

Actually, I was tempted when I was outside Iceland on Saturday. I honestly couldn't understand what he was saying because he had a mask on - which is like putting your hand over your mouth and talking at the same time.

 

I just wanted to talk to him and say something along the lines of do you realise this whole mask thing is a complete and utter joke. I would have happily spoke to him but I prefer to see a face... their lips move... their expressions etc.

haha same last night as i was in mates block of flats. mate doesn't allow smoking in his flat so another friend smokes and he wanted a cig so we all went downstairs outside and the security man had a mask on and was saying something to us while we were holding our beer cans. i didn't know what he was saying so i just agreed with him and give him a thumbs up. turns out he was giving off to us saying no alcohol drinking is allowed outside of the flats lol

 I think they would be pretty easy to slice with a razor blade and it would open up well enough to breathe.?

I was on Twitter and  there were all these people with pics saying things like

 

"This is my son aged 10 who wears a mask and had lung cancer"

"This is me I have asthma, copd and only half a brain and I wear a mask."

 

Trying guilt tripping  techniques  on  us, thing is though I  don't  know if these accounts or people are real so the appeals to emotion don't  work.

It's all part of the 'psychological warfare' to get people to police each other

Most definitely so.

 

I was thinking  last night that eventually it will fail because of the  short attention span of a lot of people nowadays after years of internet use..

"Ok we've  done the masks thing, we're bored of all that now."

 

The clap clap clap was wearing out by the end,  the clapclap for NHS birthday only 2 people came out on my street did a short duet and ran back in because  they obviously now felt stupid without backup.

 

Maybe my thoughts are  right on this and maybe not?

Those parents who make their children wear masks ‘despite a serious medical condition’ are absolute scum parents. Putting them at greater risk just for virtue signalling and then expecting everyone else to do the same. Just because they’re a scummy parent, or their kid seems to cope, doesn’t mean all kids will be fine being muzzled or that we should endanger other children more greatly with a medical condition.
