We did not eat, did not sleep. We went into the bathroom to drink because we were afraid to remove our masks.

But we're the crazy ones ::).

Ironically, the bathroom is probably the worst place to go.

Obviously. But they'll do (or claim to do) what has visibility chivalry rather than anything that makes sense (for example ask the people that are maskless to wear a mask, rather than terrorize them - probably to get a response that they have all recovered from COVID-19)

Wished that 1 airline would make a maskless section (like the good old smoking section at the back of the plane), for all those who don't want to wear a mask. Let them accomodate the vaxed, recovered, or others that chose to think on their own.
Will never happen during Harris's term...

I flew Ethiopian five times this month and nobody gave a flying flamingo about masking. Was like the good old days.

Yes. Many people find it hard to wear a mask for extended periods of time. It's even harder when in their minds they are convinced that there is no health benefit to it, as they are immune (either because they recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies, or because they were vaccinated).

That is pure conjecture as no-one being forced to wear a mask has actually experienced the latter.

It's like when people say something tastes like cr@p, it doesn't mean they actually tasted cr@p...

I should have stopped for you when I saw you walking on the street this morning so we can have a chat, but you were going in the wrong direction...

The chilul hashem is worth the hardship, if it’s too hard don’t fly.

Just read the comments and you will get the sentiment of the general population to Orthodox Jews due to COVID non compliance.
