These 2 are helping me get junk out of my house with a trip to the recycling depot, and value village. In order to do that, they are wearing proper masks under their gaiter masks, to protect others from any germs we may be unwittingly carrying.
My 10 year old hates wearing masks because they fog up his glasses and are “itchy” (overall, uncomfortable for him).
But guess what? He’s 10. If he complained about wearing a seatbelt because it was uncomfortable we would not give a damn and make him wear it anyway.
If he thought that wearing a bike helmet was uncomfortable and would make him too sweaty, we would make him anyway.
So, if you don’t want to wear a mask, just remember that it is no different than other safety measures. Maybe they are not the most comfortable things in the world (I’m looking at you, self locking seatbelts that pin me to the seat), but they are there for a purpose.
