What is the point? Are we not grown adults? Do we not CHOOSE to go into a business, and know their rules BEFORE we walk in the doors?
Walmart is so afraid of confrontation, they are now not expecting their employees at the front door to enforce the mask requirement.
I see several problems here.
1) Grown adults can’t be trusted to ACT like grown adults.
2) Walmart makes a REQUIREMENT to wear a face mask, and people KNOW the rules before they CHOOSE to walk in the doors, but because people can’t act like grownups, and follow the rules, Walmart is now not enforcing the rule. This is just asinine.
3) If Walmart can’t enforce the face mask rule, they need to be enforcing the rule where only elderly and immunocompromised shop between 7am and 8am.
Anti-maskers have sparked violent incidents at stores, restaurants and other businesses over requirements to wear them. A security guard at a Family Dollar store in Michigan was shot and killed in May after he told a customer to wear a maskCNN
Because of such incidents, Walmart has backed off of enforcing their mask requirement.
“With every requirement there are exceptions that have been established to avoid escalating the situation and putting our associates in harm’s way,” a Walmart representative told CNN: “Our goal is to keep associates from a physical confrontation in the stores.”
I feel I need to say: It is a CHOICE to shop at Walmart. They are ALLOWING people to shop in their store. It isn’t a right. Know your place. Be an adult. Follow the rules, get in, get what you need, get out. The end. How hard is that?!?
I’m not talking to “YOU.” I mean, the collective “YOU.” I’m talking about “YOU” as a society.
Walmart has what they are calling “Health Ambassadors” standing at the door to “remind” people to wear masks, but they aren’t supposed to argue if someone doesn’t want to wear a mask.
These “Health Ambassadors” can offer the offending customer a face mask, but if the customer doesn’t take it, they aren’t to stop them from shopping in the store.
I understand not EVERYONE can wear a face mask. I know there are legit medical problems that keep people from following the mask rule. I’m not saying these people need to put that mask on.
But, if you are just being a bully, just trying to cause trouble, just seeing how far you can get with your “rights,” might I kindly suggest you just stop. These employees are people, too.
Just follow the dang rules. Be a grownup. If you choose to shop at these businesses that require masks, WEAR THE MASK.
On a side note: did you know that Walmart is planning to get rid of all plastic shopping bags? Here is what we know.
