So I walked into a tire store yesterday, dropping off a tractor tire that needed to be replaced. The tire had been ordered, had arrived, and needed to be mounted on the rim.
Now, this is in an area where, 2 months prior, one could generally see folks AWAYS wearing masks in public. Often wearing masks while driving alone in a car. If one were seen wiothout a mask, the social pressure was significant. One did not dare enter a store without some form of face covering. People were actually calling the police if they saw you without a mask. COmpliance was very nearly 100%. Store owners, for fear of being shut down, insisted on masks….
When I walked into the tire store, there were 11 people in the waiting area, 2 at the counter.
Only one of them was wearing a mask.
