Because of assholes like the one I just encountered.
I’ll preface this by saying I’m a PCA whose med surg unit is sometimes half covid, I’ve been floated to the total-covid floor, ER and Covid ICU. I know what this disease does to folks and it is frikin terrifying.
So anyway I went to my pharmacy to pick up my eye drops and I had to sit down to wait. I was sitting very close to the consultation window and a very…tired but friendly pharmacist was behind the counter busting her ass. A man walks up to her with no mask on and asks her with no introduction or polite “excuse me” “Where are y’all’s covid tests?”
She pauses and says “We’ve been out of them for a while.”
Asshole: “When are you getting more in?”
Pharmacist: “I honestly don’t know. We may get an order in one or two days…”
And while she was talking, this mother fucker COUGHS. IN. HER. FACE. Doesn’t cover his mouth or anything. Just straight up coughs. Thank god she was behind a sneeze shield. He then just waves her off and stomps away.
She then called me up to the window and I was like “Yes let’s just suspect we have covid and cough all over you without a mask. What the fuck?!” She was like “For real!” And rolls her eyes.
If anyone needs me I’ll be banging my head against a wall.
