    :lorks::o I'd have thought both optician and customer would have needed one.
    Always hated the fact they got so close to my face without a mask even before Covid.
    Dreading going when my next test is due now !

    I thought the same too.
    I really wish I didn't have to go, but, apparently the child needs to see where she's going....

    I'm currently here now, it's nowhere near as bad as I thought, all staff are wearing face masks or visors or both, and the majority of customers are too.

    The only problem was an old bloke who decided to stand right behind (I mean RIGHT behind me) me as we waited at the door to go in for the appointment. And there's a lot of people in here too.

    Give the "old bloke" the benefit of the doubt. He might not have seen you.

    While waiting (outside) to go into the opticians, I noticed the queue to get into the Butlers Bell. About 10 people queueing outside at 3pm, socially distanced, but still - people waiting outside to go in the pub for a drink?? Now?

    There seems to be a vowel missing there.

    Another time you might ask "Are you blind or just a twat ?"

    Didn't feel at all safe in the Wildwood Co-op tonight. Dirty tissues left in a trolley, sanitised my own trolley with disinfectant on the stand inside, but no hand sanitiser in both bottles when I went to do my hands ( and had left mine in the car after going to Aldi).
    A young lad in front of me also several times trying to avoid a woman with a family, the woman kept suddenly doubling back and not moving over to let us both past at a safe distance. Was glad to get out of there!

    I wasn't in front of him at the optician, so why would I ask that?

    Being new on here I'm unfortunately not sure who's who.
    My comment was meant for whoever was queueing directly in front of the "twat".

    But I'm neither familiar with all the techniques involved with computers nor able to learn them.

    If you want to quote something that someone has said you click on “reply” which is at the bottom of their post.


    If you want to alert someone to something you’ve written you put @ in front of their name

    Carole.
    Thanks.
    I think I knew the first bit but not the second.
    The last time I used "@" was probably with a cartridge pen, or maybe biro, in the context of "10 @ 7d = 5s 10d".
