He drops our groceries on the front porch, like he has almost every Saturday since the world shut down. We’ve already had one hospital scare and we’re doing what we can to avoid another. As such, our friend takes our order every Friday and delivers the goods the following morning.

In times like these, it’s a godsend to have a village, even a socially distanced one.

I don't have the luxury of having someone get my groceries, or my mother's groceries. I also have asthma. With that being said, I put on my mask every week and trudge through the store. However, I have not had any of the negative incidents as you describe. I have seen courtesy, staying 6 feet away from each other, and letting people not wear a mask and not follow the rules. One incident does not make the whole world bad.


You are really a little overly dramatic...maybe get some counseling.
