And... M-Day has come!


Notification came down from corporate yesterday, right before I left work, stating all employees will now be required to wear a mask during working hours.

This should be interesting.

Between plexi-glass barriers, COVID-19 masks, and the terrible musac that is always playing a little too loudly over head, it will now be completely impossible to hear anyone while they speak ever.

It wasn't until customers started wearing the masks that I realized just how much I relied on lip reading while having a conversation. With the social distancing rules, you can't even lean in now to get a better listen to what people are saying.

I've decided to make sign-language my new second language.

There is one bonus to the requirement of our new fashion accessory....

I can now tell people off, under my breath, whenever I feel like it, without them being any the wiser.

"Fuck you, you fucking douche bag" will likely become my new favorite sentence ender for conversations with people I can't stand.

I can't wait!

Yes, you are right. Better safe than sick. I don't think my eyes will give away that much... I'm one of those people that have resting bitch face anyway.

    Today was the first time I went out for provisions wearing my shiny new N95 mask (those things are fucking stifling!) and I have to say, being able to say nasty things to the morons I encountered, under my breath and with impunity, almost made up for having to wear the mask.
Today was the first day I had to wear a mask too... It was terrible. I couldn't wear my glasses as I could not keep them unfogged. The mask kept sliding up and poking into my lower eyelid skin. I think I touch my face a zillion times as it was so irritating to my skin. It did NOT go well.

    Speaking what you feel is liberating.
    Go for it. I've been doing it since forever... without a mask. 😮
I have a hard time speaking what I feel while I'm on the clock. Only the people that really, truly know me ever really know my real opinions and feelings about things.

I find that people never quite know how to explain what they are looking for....

Can you tell me what isle you have work gloves in? You know, the kind you can just throw away? They're.... rubber...

Turns out they were looking for the yellow gloves you wash your dishes in.

My biggest peeve is when the customer tells me "I can never find anything in this store!" So, you walk them to the product, and they tell you "I was already here, that's not the brand I'm looking for."

REALLY?????

Um, yah. We don't CARRY that Walmart brand dumbass. This is not WALMART!

    I thought I was alone having a hard time understanding people wearing masks. My 1st thought was how much I need to see lips to understand people.
Nope, not alone. I discovered today, also, that I whisper a lot of stuff to people during conversation. Stuff I don't want others to overhear... That became a challenge almost immediately. I had to close my office door for quite a few conversations.

I sometimes have a hard time picking out voices in a crowd, or when there is a lot of extra noise going on. It's probably a result of my years and years of loud music and concerts.... Hearing aids are very inconspicuous now, you almost cant even tell when someone is wearing them.

    Hopefully you won't be uttering that wonderful phrase when the musac decides to take a pause. But the mask should make it difficult or impossible for someone several feet away to understand what you've said.
Didn't get caught today.... Tell you what, that mask was totally itchy on my face. Good God...

    I went to a VA Appointment and the doctor had a mask and a very heavy accent. I had a mask and I have hearing loss. We were about 50 feet away. She asked me something and I thought she said Penis so I started to drop my pants and she became very alarmed as what she said apparently had nothing to do with my penis. I understood every 4th word. I was quite embarrassed. I cannot imagine working in those conditions and I agree a lot of people are fucking douche bags. I hope you manage well. Stay safe and healthy, an oh yeah,employed lol!
Staying employed.... My whole goal! LOL What did she say?? LOL If I could have been a fly on the wall... I might have gotten a good chuckle out of that.
