In a video uploaded by Jordan Gipson, a delivery driver with Black Postmates in Los Angeles, a combative and maskless woman refuses to allow Gipson into the building. Eventually the resident who ordered the food arrives (wearing a mask) to get their food.

“Well I did wear – I had one on before. I wore one in this back area. But I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”
– President Donald Trump, in response to a reporter on why he didn’t wear a mask while touring a Ford plant.
Writer, artist and fellow blogger Art Browne (my kindred brother in weirdness) proposed this alternative:
“Texas’ Governor says you don’t need (expletive)!”
– An unidentified man at a 99 Cent Only store in San Antonio, Texas, after an employee told him to wear a mask as part of company policy to prevent spread of COVID-19.
The belligerent, maskless man had charged at other customers who were recording him and even shouted at one, “Don’t record me! That’s an invasion of my personal privacy!”
I have to make three points regarding this particular incident. For one thing, while Texas Governor Greg Abbott hasn’t made it mandatory for people wear masks in public, he has encouraged the practice. Also, when someone is in public – angry or not – they should have no expectation of privacy. Finally, if you’ve ever been to a 99 Cent Only store, you should understand that the COVID-19 virus is the least potential health hazard you’ll face.
