How long do you plan on wearing a mask for? Will it be for the rest of your life? What will change your view?

This isn’t meant to be inflammatory. There’s someone at work who wears one everyday and I’m too afraid to ask them.

    I only wear one if I’m sick, or travelling by plane.

      I always wear them in airports. Airplanes I have stopped caring, but airports have so. many. people.

      My story is I was in Denver, sitting in a chair. This was long before covid. The only chair left was one by those moving walkways in the middle of their concourses. I was sitting there reading and some guy literally turned to his right and just sneezed directly in my face. Wet drips literally down my cheek. He just casually rolled away on it, never said anything. I was sick the next day.

      Fuck that guy, fuck gross people. Mask won’t protect me against that, but ffs if your sick just wear one.

        The exact same thing happened to me while I was deplaning, a few years prior to Covid. Full face sneeze with no effort to cover their mouth or nose, at like 1 foot away. So I still wear a mask on planes and in the airport.

          Yeughh, I’m sorry, it’s the absolute worst. I begudgingly understand if you need to fly when you’re sick, after all - what if you get sick while on vacation? Most people can’t just not go to work for an additional 2 weeks while you recover, and buy a hotel room for that long. At the very least though get a mask and just keep it contained.

          Sure I have an immune system, it doesn’t mean I want to use it when I’m going on vacation!
