The face mask thing is getting ridiculous. The guys who need them for work can’t get them. Some stores are putting them behind the counter and are asking the purpose of the purchase.
@LightskinDarkNig, I’m a painter and use masks a lot for sanding drywall and using cover stain and have been unable to get masks for the past 2 weeks :/
@LightskinDarkNig, I work at a chemical plant. We use a lot of gloves/respirators/dust masks. The plant decided to make a giant purchase to hoard a couple months of PPE in case supply is hard to come by due to the coronavirus.
@North, you can thank the liberal media for that. Propaganda!
@North, oh great. So the idiots are just buying any kind of mask regardless of its function. Good to know.
@North, by reusable respirators
@North, I recently had to run cabling under the building and couldn't get a mask for that either (hello dirt, grime, and insulation going into my lungs)
@LightskinDarkNig, I work in a lab that makes diffraction gratings. Without masks our gratings are getting dirty! Won't someone think of the gratings?!?!
@LightskinDarkNig, I go in attics regularly and have had to use the same mask for a few weeks now because all stores sold out.
@North, unfortunately you aren't gonna be able to get them any time soon either
@North, I'm a maintenance supervisor, I can't even order toilet paper for the housekeeper to restock the bathrooms.. let alone cleaning supplies
@North, I work in a hospital and we keep masks clipped next to the patients doors and some family members will just steal the whole box. Which will not help because it's just for flu and other dropped precaution, it doesn't help for airborne diseases like TB and coronavirus. This hype is getting out of hand.
Not that the face masks wont help at all but its pretty much pointless in preventing you getting it. Pretty effective in stopping you from spreading it though.
If you change the money to dirt in the bottom picture, you have the people that think the face masks will help them.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, they do actually help though if used properly, it’s just that nobody uses them properly and hand washing / not touching your face is good enough for general public
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, it’s mainly that masks help with the people who are infected from coughing everywhere
1: Buy out all masks from stores
2: Sell them for 5x the price online
4: Go to hell
As someone who works in a pharmacy, for the love of God please stop buying all the hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, and rubbing alcohol. Having to tell people that actually need those that we don't have any is getting very depressing.
You know facemasks arent like super technology. It's literally an air filter for your face. You can create your own masks easily. Calm down America
Dont even mention the toilet paper companies...
