I don't know why it is so hard for people to wear a damn mask, and wear it properly. I get so annoyed when I see someone with a mask hanging under their nose (Chris Monroe). The other day I went through a drive thru to order lunch. When I pulled up to pay, I saw a worker making food with a mask hanging half off of her face - I left. Call me crazy, it won't be the first time.
