Yesterday, I had my first doctor's appointment in several years. Hey, I've been healthy. Shocking, I know.
There was a sign on the outside door saying masks required, and a sign on the interior door saying the same thing. The receptionist was wearing a mask. I introduced myself. She asked if I needed a mask. I said sure, she gave me one, and I just held it in my hand the entire time that we spoke.
When the nurse called me back, she said I didn't need the mask back there, if I didn't want. There's your proof it's all for show. Anyway, I said I didn't want to wear one because these masks don't block viruses. Unless you're wearing a full hazmat suit, don't bother. She laughed and said "We know. We all hate it, but have to follow hospital rules." I was at a satellite office near me.
The doctor then came in and said, "I'm glad you're not going to make me wear a mask," meaning if I was wearing one, she would feel obligated to wear one, adding, "We hate those things."
And the rest of the visit went very well.
Just wanted to put it out there that everyone knows these masks are a scam.
