Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

I thought people in the doctors Surgery were required to wear masks now including in the waiting rooms? Sounds like a certain surgery isn't following COVID rules if they aren't enforcing the use of masks. Then again you've got your Karens who will cause a hailstorm over having to wear one.

People who wear face masks incorrectly, I've seen it on TV and I've seen it in person.

News reporters standing near workers in full biohazard gear without any PPE on.

When you forget to change the ISO on the camera and the photo(s) comes out "noisy".

Calling the Police assistance line (non-emergency) and having to listen to a good 3+ minutes of recorded spill before it even puts me on hold to get connected to an operator.

TV 3401 sometimes operates it as well but not sure which as I usually see it when it's sign w...
