If we have to wear masks indefinitely will future generations have ears that stick out more?

Yes Heywood Iíd had the thought that lipstick sales must have plummeted this year  ;D

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


Not just me then...It's all so much part of my routine, putting the Face on that I automatically put the lippy on before going out...inly when I take the mask off and see that I have kissed it do I realise  ;D ;D ;D It's just a well that we have to change them every day!!!

To go back to the original post - last week when I was having a doorstep chat to a friend a police office was visiting a house across the road from me, his mask was across his mouth but not his nose. I felt like shouting 'I hope you're going to put that on properly!'. These are the people who are sitting in cars at the borders of my tier 3 area, waiting to collar anyone going into the neighbouring tier 2 area.

Sorry we digressed.
Yes it is odd that people still have not taken it on board that it should be worn in a particular way and as has been pointed out, even the P M didnít do it yesterday. Not a good example.

I sell age restricted goods & often have to ask people if I can see their features...

It's surprising how many actually go to the extremes of removing their mask by the ear(s), sometimes pulling down hoods etc...

All they need do is pull the mask down to their chin, no need to remove.

On the other hand, there are the ones who question why I need them to show their features which often comes with abuse, telling me they're 'x' age!  ::)

I politely tell them, if I was as good as be able to tell the ages of people by pairs of eyes I wouldn't be in the job I am.

Seems people can't think sensibly in this day & age...if the answer isn't on their phones they're stumped!  ;D

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.

My daughter says someone with their nose hanging out is more annoying than someone not wearing a mask at all.

but to pull it down you are touching the front and and then allowing the inside of the mask to touch previously exposed skin potentially picking up contamination.

Trouble is masks don't stay where they are put.  As soon as I put the mask over the end of my nose it rapidly travels upwards until it is sitting on the bit between my eyes - and then I can't see anything!
