Mr. Motormouth

RDP Friday – Enough!

He rides my train with three other guys from the construction crew he works with and when he does the air around us is filled with the sounds of his voice- and his voice alone.

He hasn’t a clue or he doesn’t care that when he spouts off his co-workers really never add to what he’s saying, or he doesn’t care.

Like, during the protests he was telling everyone what kind of guns he was going to put into his car, ‘ just in case he had to defend himself’.

He brags what a nice car he has and how his girlfriend has not so reliable car and that when she asked for a ride to work, he told her to call for a Lyft or a cab.

He wasn’t going to let her, ‘ mooch off of him ‘. he loudly and proudly announced.

That was the only time I ever heard the guys with him expand on what he said. One said if his wife wanted a car, he’d get her one.

The other guy said Mr Motormouth was an asshole and the third guy pretended to be asleep.

So what a big surprise, Mr. Motormouth who is required to wear a mask at work has decided anyone who wears one out in public or as required by ordinances are ignorant of the law.

Yesterday he told everyone ( he was out of the 10 people in my car, one of the three not wearing a mask ) that the Governor’s law was illegal because it discriminated against people who didn’t wear masks.

Plus he said, it’s not enforceable.

So ha ha on everyone wearing a mask.

He said over and over again, the Governor can’t make or enforce laws that discriminate against people. Plus, there are people with health conditions that will suffocate and die if they wear a mask and what about them?

Mr. Motormouth.

Patriot,Legal Scholar, defender of people with disabilities- shooting his big mouth off and spraying his germs all over everyone sitting around him, or walking by him.

I wonder if he would wear a mask if we told him he could make everyone in the car sick and then who would he have to Motor his Mouth off at for 40 minutes a day?

I bet he’d glue that mask to his face.

That’s what I would put money on.

From The American Lung Association:

Myth #3:

If you have asthma, you should wear a disposable mask when in public areas to help limit COVID-19 exposure.

FACT:

Current guidance from the CDC says that commercially-available masks – like N-95s and surgical masks – should be reserved for people who are already sick and healthcare workers that interact with those patients.  

But up to one in four individuals infected with COVID-19 might have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, and may be unknowingly spreading the virus.  The use of a cloth face covering – whether that is a handmade cloth mask, bandana or scarf – can help slow the spread of COVID-19.  These types of masks are not intended to protect the wearer, but to protect against the unintended transmission – in case you are an asymptomatic carrier of the coronavirus. If you have respiratory symptoms (e.g., fever, sneezing, cough, shortness of breath), you should stay home unless directed by your healthcare provider to see medical care and then you should wear a mask to prevent spreading your droplets to others.

Debunking myths about wearing masks:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WCBD) – There are many myths about masks and it is safer to understand what types of masks are okay for your safety.

The Director of Critical Care at Grand Strand Health says that cloth masks are adequate and recommended for the general public to use.

There has been speculation that wearing one can make you sick by breathing freshly exhaled carbon dioxide.

“It’s just not really the case,” said Dr. Thad Golden, Director of Critical Care at Grand Strand Health. “In other words it doesn’t restrict your breathing enough to create a problem for most people. For the general population the take home message is they are safe to use and important to use especially now during this flare.”

Dr. Golden says that people with severe respiratory illnesses may have trouble breathing with a mask on and should speak with their doctor.

  1. So often, those with the least to say are the yakky-est, eh? Something to be said for headphones…or, in this case, earmuffs. Well told.

    • As much as it made my brain hurt to listen to him, I listened. You have to learn about the world and who is in it to understand it. Thank you for reading my post Ron.
