Nurse ‘Owns’ Shopper Who Ridiculed Her For Wearing A Mask

We have become used to seeing fellow shoppers with their masks on when we pop to the shops for our weekly dose of something to do. 

A few weeks ago, the sight of shoppers wearing masks was a novelty. It was something to ‘laugh’ about. 

But then the true scale of the situation started to become apparent, and now everyone wants a mask on – even when they are in their car on their own. 

But that still has not stopped some people being rude when they see someone else out-and-about with a mask on. As one nurse in the USA found out recently. 

Emily Annette had just finished a shift and was shopping for some groceries (wearing her mask) when she had an encounter with a rude and abrupt shopper. 

Emily (@EmilyAnnette6) tweeted to say:

“At the grocery. Wearing my mask. Lady behind me, snarky & loud enough to make sure I heard, “don’t guess she realizes that stupid mask won’t do any good.” Me: “Honey, I’m an off duty nurse, I’m wearing it to protect YOU. But, I can take it off if you’d like.” She practically ran”.

The tweet clearly struck a chord with thousands of people as it has been ‘liked’ 832k times with over 107k retweets. 

So if you do go to the shops and you see someone wearing a mask, then just remember that they may not necessarily be wearing one to protect themselves. 

They might be wearing one to protect you instead…
