Loop: East Barnet

  • Avoiding supermarkets

    Very sad and worrying to see staff and customers wearing a mask below their nose or mouth... yet they are wearing a mask!
    Avoiding supermarkets big time such as N14 Asda where even the security man amongst others wear a mask below the nose. Some people feel the need to turn up with someone else when they should go by themselves.
    At the mini Tesco Hampden Square N14 the manager also thinks best to wear his mask below his nose. I had a word with him and now if he sees me he pulls it up over his nose. Customers without masks can shop there no problem.
    Receiving parcels and mail is far from safe either as all would have been handled by several people.
    And with all this danger around I have been told (not asked) to attend jury service for a minimum of two weeks when one is told to stay safe and stay at home. The option is a heavy fine following a court appearance...
    I did respond mentioning that I run a cat rescue by myself so I do not have the time nor the energy but I was told this is no excuse. At all times I am worn out and never have enough time to get in with all my tasks so this jury service is not going to help. I don’t want to use public transport or taxi for obvious reasons and there will be nowhere to park. I don’t want to be in a room with other people at present.
    Nothing but grief in this sad world!
