    Me: Wake up at 6am and build air. Roll through shippers gate. Climb on deck to start untarping. Tow motor rolls up. I say good morning man!

    Him: Do you have a mask.

    Me: Yes in my truck.

    Him: You need to have it on.

    Me: I don't wear a mask outside period.

    Him: The boss says you have to.

    Me: Go get em.

    Him: He is over in that building but you can't go in.

    Me: Do you want the load or not because I will eat 2k right now and return it to Ohio AND be ###### (won't let me use profanity correctly) to eternal hell before I wear my mask in the rain outside while untarping a load. I will put it on when you sign the BOL but that is it.

    Him: Sorry man it is not me it is the owner.

    Me: That is why I want to see him face to face to tell him that it isn't going to happen. Do you want the load or not?

    Him: Ok man.

    This was in New York and the very first time I have ever heard anything so absurd. It just won't fly with me and never will.

    I am getting to the point where my list of places I won't go is getting as long as the places I will go.

    Rant over.

    We have customers that require you to wear masks, even when driving by yourself in your truck.

    I will wear one inside or any time I’m near someone outside. If I’m working by myself it’s not going to happen. I keep in in my front pocket and I’ve never been bothered.

    I haven’t worn a mask at anytime and not going too. I just tell them I am medically not able and they leave me alone

    I just don't understand the mask logic they spew at us. even less do I understand the logic of a mask on by yourself in your own truck that you pay for and maintain, sorry to say but you're paranoid imo if you're doing that....
