Tonight I was watching Hanna on PRIME (great show, don’t knock it) flipping through Twitter and this Tweet intrigued me for a few reasons. Seeing as it’s a legitimate question Jim asks, I’d like to address in a more formal manner.
Again, legit question, Jimmy. Thanks for asking.
It depends. Currently, I live by, ‘If you have to ask, wear the fucking mask’ as a rule thumb during this difficult time. I don’t want to live with the anxiety of knowing if I just sanitized, washed my hands, or wore a mask, someone in my family or worse, I wouldn’t be dead. I don’t think dead people can wish but dying people can so if I can avoid lying in palliative care hooked up to a ventilator wheezing ‘I wIsH I wOrE A mAsKGAGGGAHAHHHAhhhh….’, I will.
BUT, some businesses do not require masks so if it’s not mandatory in your city, state, region, or province, then you’re well withing you’re legal right to drag that guy barking at you over your lack of self-awareness into the parking lot and punch his brain in.
Kidding, He’s just an asshole who either A) Get’s off on showing people up because he’s and you referred to him, ‘A Little Guy’. It’s never worth punching another human being unless it’s in self-defense (mostly) and B) It’s always a shitty look when friends and family find out you punched out a 5’4 mouthpiece at Winners for not wearing a mask.
HAVING HAID THAT, even though right now it’s a dick move NOT to wear a mask in store, I’m NEVER going to walk up to a complete stranger and encourage them to wear one much less yell at them like some drunk fucking clown trying to save the world by being a dick.
Jim, I think you need to settle into the cold sleeping bag of truth that we live in a very fucking bizarre and transitive time where you have to expect stupid people to do stupid things for social reinforcement. Add to the fact if someone doesn’t want to wear a mask there’s nothing anyone is going to do to make them so why would I create an awkward public moment over it? No way. plus, if I don’t know them and they die of COVID19 as sad as that may be for their friends and family, practically speaking, I don’t care. It doesn’t change my day because I’m wearing a mask, Jim. I’m wearing a mask.
BUT JIM, never question your own self-worth no matter how badly some cancel culture, right fighting, hippie, wants to insert their long dick of social justice in a public place for people to see how woke and big that dick is.
IN CLOSING, try to wear a mask. Buy a ten pack and keep them in the car. If you can’t get your hands on a mask or don’t need one, don’t cough on people intentionally or walk around citing your civil right to breathe anywhere you fucking want.
Take Care, Jim. Hope this helped.
PS: Record it next time.
