“Today I went to my local Boots branch to pick up a repeat prescription. I wasn’t wearing a mask and handed my prescription over.
The shop assistant went off to check the details and when she returned to the counter said “I’m going to have to get you to wear a mask”. I replied that I wouldn’t be wearing one as I am medically exempt. She asked, rather pointedly “Are you exempt?” and I replied “That is what I said.”
One minute later she handed over the inhalers I had been waiting for. This is the reality of Face-mask Fascism today. Even the staff of Boots the Chemist are being encouraged to point out and shame “non-maskers” rather than show empathy for hidden disability – even when it is clear to see on a prescription.
Sadly, this is only going to get worse. Keep strong everyone, look them in the eye and refuse to give in to stupid” – Sent in by member of the public
