Ill-fitting masks
« on: Thursday 10 December 20 10:16 GMT (UK) »
I'm heartily sick of TV interviews with people whose masks don't cover their noses.  Even the PM's nose was clearly visible yesterday in an interview.  Why don't the cameramen tell them to cover up?  We all surely know by now that both mouth and nose should be covered.  ::)

p.s. Ever tried putting on and taking off a mask when wearing a woolly hat which covers the ears?  It's a tricky business.

Oh, I agree, so many people are shown wearing their masks covering only their mouths !
In Corrie, they go into the pub not wearing a mask and start to speak then pull their mask up.A film set I know but real people!

I could not understand why , when the Specialist who was attending to me ,was fully protected,gown,mask, hat, gloves,and  I wore a mask yet during his examination of my eyes three different young Drs were in and out of the room asking him questions to do with the patients they were seeing.!
No excuse me , - They had no protective clothing !
Just got between him and me with only inches between.
I truly was flabbergasted .

Yes my OH has quite a palaver these days - mask, glasses, woolly hat and hearing aid, he has to do it in a particular order.
Had a panic yesterday having just returned from a walk as he thought hed lost his hearing aid but it had got snagged in the elastic of his mask  ::)

Whenever I go from the cold outdoors into a warm shop, the mask makes my glasses steam up. I can't see a thing, bump into things, knock over shelves. I'm like the scene in Borat when he's in the antique store, except with me it's oranges and melons.

A friend of mine has lost several earrings, pulled off when the mask comes off.
I too found that when I had a rainhat on, fitting a mask on, without dislodging my spectacles was ... rather difficult.

I was just at a zoom meeting and that thought dawned on me then. I actually put blusher on too!
