I had some serious immigration stupidity with some video out of Europe to write about, but today will continue being busy. Instead, here's this quick Kung Flu Stupidity anecdote from an airport terminal not long ago. (Yep, it has never completely ended!)
There was a really big lady with who I think was her mother or even her grandmother. It was hard to tell because the younger lady was young-middle-age, and the older woman was 85 at least. I'll just assume grandma here.
I was sitting nearby (probably writing unz comments) as they were a few minutes from boarding their flight out. The granddaughter was helping her grandma get her stuff together. Part of that was telling the old lady "you need to put this mask on." Grandma wanted nothing to do with it. "It's OK here [in the terminal], but we're gonna be in close to all these people, and the air flow is not good ..." Granddaughter was mask-free, herself.
Now, I suppose if this were in the middle of the PanicFest and the peak of the virus, one could make a case for both of the two women being vulnerable and wanting to wear these masks - one was very old, and one was very fat. (So long as they didn't force it on me, fine.)
Those things are uncomfortable and impede breathing, though. Today I (would) say to the pushy granddaughter, "put your mouth where your mouth is." Grandma was having none of this Kung Flu panic business and was last seen sticking that face mask she was given into her purse. Grandma power!
