A guy shared a story of how he had used a mask that was lying around on his table to wipe away some ‘cream’ after he was done and then put it inside his jacket.
He then went to work one day and while he was walking to the train station remembered that he did not wear a mask and innocently took out the mask from his jacket to wear.
Here is the story
“Alright. This story happened about 5 months ago.
We all have this moment where we’re going to think about some stuff then the next second we are playing with the joystick.
Halfway through you realise you used up all your toilet paper/tissue in your room. That is where I decided to adapt, improvise and overcome the situation.
I see an old mask just lying there on my desk and decide its destiny is to be the graveyard for my unborn children.
The deed is done and the mask actually did an impressive job collecting the ‘cream’, not soggy or anything.
My family was all in the living room and I didn’t want walk out to throw the mask in the toilet.
That is when I crumbled the mask up and put it in the pocket of my jacket, to throw it away discreetly later.
I forgot about it and a week later I’m on my way to work.
While walking to the train station I realised that I haven’t got a mask on me.
I know that it has been a long time since we cannot go out without a mask but I do have times when I forgot to wear them.
I panicked and fumble in my pockets then breath out of relieve when I seem to grab a mask.
Well, my relief turned into horror when I remembered.
The mask was all crumbled up and crusty when I opened it and I had to make the choice of walking home to take a mask and risk being late for work or just wearing it till my office before I changed to a new mask.
I grabbed the mask and slowly put it on but not fully so It only covered my mouth and with my finger I held the upper part of the mask so it wouldn’t touch my nose.
I stayed like this for almost an hour before I reached my office and changed into a new one.”
