My wife wasn't feeling well (non-Covid related) and I had to go pick her up some medicine so drove o to CVS, as soon as I look in the door where the checkout counter is there's some idiot buying beer with his scarf down around his neck, just chatting away with the clerk. It was all I could do not to confront him but I just turned around and left and went to another store instead.

IMO these people are the lowest scum there is, totally selfish and couldn't give a shit about anyone other than themselves. :mad:

Ha! If I posted every time I was at the gas station or grocery store and saw someone not wearing a mask you would need more disk space!

What I have started doing when I am walking out is thank the person wearing a mask in front of or behind the person that is not wearing one. I have gotten some pretty nasty looks. 😆

Reminds me of the prank when you are in a crowded setting like an outdoor eating area loudly pretend to be having an argument with somebody on your cell phone. At some point say “You’re going to kick my ass? I’d like to see you come down here and try. What am I wearing?” Scan the people around you and describe what somebody else is wearing. Then go “Yeah, I’ll be here, pussy!” Then hang up and run away.

The name CVS confuses me. Whenever I’m in their store I expect the products on the shelves to be separated by commas.

Thank you. Thank you. You’ve been a lovely audience. Be sure to remember to tip the wait staff. Oh, and try the veal! It’s marvelous. I’ll be back on Thursday night so I hope to see you all then! Drive carefully!

This happens to me all the time, if I'm not thinking about it I'll always type out CSV instead. I am writing to one in scripts on a regular basis, it wasn't until I moved to CA that it was even an issue lol.

I used to visit one on the bad side of Oakland, but everything was pipe delimited.

Yeah. I spent just shy of twenty years there. Are you in the City?
Born in SF and lived in Daly City (always on the peninsula) for much of my childhood, then back and forth from Oregon for the next 40 some odd years but ended up in the Sacramento area because I'm not a kajillionaire who can afford a home in the city. However, it will always be my home no matter how much of a shit hole it can be. 😁

Wow. I hope the clerk was at least wearing a mask...and behind a plexiglass shield.

More side notes... or rather a swing back to thread start's premises, more or less:

Per a Bloomberg piece - part of an ongoing series Looking for Lincoln , a cross country trip in the run up to the election-- their reporter walked into a shop in Pennsylvania, five miles south of the Flight 93 National Memorial park. He was wearing a mask, in compliance with the sign sported on the shop door: “Our Pennsylvania TYRANT Governor, Tom Wolf, has once again ordered that all customers must wear a mask when entering this facility.”

Inside it turned out that the staff were not masked up, which certainly helped explain the wording of the sign outside the shop. Regardless of whatever any customers may have expected, staff were demonstrating their own and fundamental noncompliance with the governor's order.

Two pepperoni rolls to go, the reporter decided... and so off to Pittsburgh and then on to Indiana on his appointed journey. Hope he didn't take covid along for the ride.

(that Bloomberg series, btw, is a good read so far)

I lived in Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, then on Mt Tam in Mill Valley. I loved the North Bay. I arrived out there in August of 1980 from the New Jersey humidity. The girls were all in spaghetti strap tops and shorts but I was freezing! I needed to wear a jacket. It took a few months to acclimate into being the best climate ever!

I used to eat at a place named Shepherd’s Inn or Sheepherder’s Inn (Carmichael, I think). It wasn’t high end but always delicious and packed.

Yeah, great climate over on that side of the bridge, too funny that you mention the way people dress there even though you can still freeze your ass off. I remember coming down from Oregon once, where it was 14 degrees in the winter, to the city where it was 50 and foggy and it felt so much colder for some reason.

Me and my buddy like to take our wives to the casino up near Rohnert Park, it's really a nice area. Are you still in CA? If not, you've probably enjoyed a summer without smoke filling your lungs for 2 months straight lol.

One of my bros lived in Petaluma for awhile, hated leaving the West Coast, same as I did after awhile out there... but the need to finish school back East was starting to nudge him towards packing up to make a January term start. I remember he eventually flew with some connecting flights into Albany in the worst sort of weather, and I got to hear him mumble about it for the two hour crawl through the slipppery slidey hills to my place for a brief visit before his classes would begin down in NYC. "Welcome to winter..." always a shock coming back from the West Coast in that season.

The only thing I'll ever miss about Oregon is a changing of seasons. We do tend to get cool winter rain storms in the bay area though.

November was so rainy in San Francisco that algae grew on the sidewalks, had to walk a different way from the heights down to where I caught a streetcar out to school.
