    Been going to Walmart DCs since this Covid nonsense began.

    Had a delivery this morning to Walmart DC.

    The security guard demanded I submit to a “temperature gun”. This is the first receiver that has done this to me since this nonsense began.. 7 months on and more and more Covid bullcrap keeps piling up. Will I have to submit to a rectal exam every delivery next year?

    I told the guard I decline because it’s an invasion of my personal privacy. Then I stood there for about 3 minutes like autistic mute ignoring further demands while about 20 trucks were lined up behind me. They eventually let me go in without the temperature check.

    They are destroying the world with the virus historians and violent thoughts keep crossing my mind with each and every further humiliation.

    The DC I work at has a temp check trailer parked out front and thermal cameras in the guard shack to scan you. The dedicated drivers use the trailer and get temp gunned while everyone else delivering have to get their whole face scanned.

    Most Walmart DC's have been doing this since the virus started to protect their employees and drivers visiting there facility. And because you think a temperature check violates your privacy, you have a temper tantrum and hold up 20 other drivers.... Nice job... They should have rejected you and told you to turn around and leave their property.

    Walmart is full blown lefty now. I received an email from Sam's Club that they donated $100 Million dollars to some Racial Equality group something or other.

    The media and the WH are saying the Covid vaccine will be voluntary.

    But I'm thinking you won't be allowed in a Walmart store without a vaccination when the time comes. Appreciate you pushing back @Harry Flashman and showing some resistance.

    So they want to scan your forehead with a non-invasive scan gun... what's the big deal. If your employer says you have to take a random piss test, you're ok with that. Every two years, you have to take a physical to prove you're not gonna drop dead while driving an 80k lb vehicle...fine. But oh dear God, a 2 or 3 second forehead temp scan is invading your privacy...WOW.

    I have to get mine taken everyday when I go into work. It's no big deal. Stop being so overly dramatic.

    You are lucky it was a scan type temperature gun, the other week I delivered at a wal mart DC and they had to do a rectal type thermometer due to the scan gun breaking. Needless to say it was a little uncomfortable, I got to a door though.
