Yes but I didn’t do a weekly shop, I just nipped in to buy one thing. Also the coffee was the one at the cinema. And we only went into the garden centre for half an hour or so.

You fairly sexed your day up there mate. You're not really much better than throbber lying in his own filth pulling cans out Bud out the sink IMO

Obviously the throbber-life is the dream that we are all working towards.

Wickes: 30-40% among customers, 0% among staff.

Morrisons: 40-50% among customers, higher among staff.

Definitely more mask wearing among older age groups.  Also saw someone riding a bike, on their own, on a quiet street, masked up, but without a helmet.

Seeing Gnash's Alan Partridge avatar beside this and then reading it in Alan's voice makes it sound like something lifted straight from an AP script.

Opposition politicians are quite right to be raising this issue, not sure why you'd expect them not to. It's not a resigning matter or anything like that, and I don't think anyone has called for that, but you'd expect a full and proper apology rather than obfuscation and deflection.

Was she as hot as you imagined?

Honestly, you have a problem.

Seek help.

ETA. Actually you have two problems. The first, and least important, is that you have a group of friends who are telling you that you are funny.

Anyone been on a shop/bus/train this morning and can estimate mask percentages?

Was at Tillicoutry today at the Sterling place and it's pretty clear that the Scottish public in that area have spoke on masks.

Well under 10% were wearing them in the shops.

So, as expected, most people were only wearing them because they were told to.

Just like the English and every other nation which has ditched them.

All those people who claimed that mask-law-abiding Scots occupied some kind of moral high-ground must feel like a bunch of utter bawbags today. 😆

Flew EasyJet from Edinburgh to Basel this afternoon. Announcement before beginning boarding was that masks are mandatory, don’t approach the desk without wearing one. So on it went.

Once on the flight. Announcement that the cabin crew won’t be wearing masks and as such they will not be enforcing the wearing of them. Mine was straight off again plus the guy next to me did the same. Scanning about i’d estimate 80% “wore” them (hanging round chins, noses out etc)

When I started making these journeys 2 years ago I’d be in a mask for near 11 hours between trains & flying indirect due to route cancellations. What a relief to not HAVE to wear one. Hopefully this is it for good now.

I'm celebrating the official end of Covid as a thing today by, err, confirming that I'm riddled with it for the first time. First had some pretty unpleasant symptoms 5 days ago which only lasted 2 days, and had been testing negative until now. Barely a tickly throat now but here we are.

Time to dust off that horse medicine and bleach I stockpiled in 2020.

Get wired into the pasta, and spent an evening using the toilet roll

Can't tell if quiet roads were his entire route, if so it's obviously silly, but my mate used to cycle to work in London wearing a mask years before Covid, and it would be charcoal black when he arrived. Better out than in as they say.

Maskless. As it has been since April 1st. It’s was like flicking a switch here. Pretty much 100% compliance up till then. 99% now don’t wear masks now. These Germanic Europeans absolutely love following orders…

IMO people who handle food should be forced to still wear a mask along with gloves and a hairnet. That’s nothing to do with Covid and all about them being clatty.

Food handlers wearing gloves is less hygienic than them not wearing them and just washing them regularly btw.
