Can't wait to do a 14 hour shift wearing a mask whilst dealing with people who won't. I know it's a good thing but that doesn't make it less of a ball ache.

So many questions about this.

What is the definition of a suitable face covering?
How will this be enforced? Are shops supposed to report every instance to the police, who then have to show up in person to arrest the maskless criminal?
Will the police and the courts have the resources to deal with this extra work.
When will this stop?

It will be an utter mess. Anybody who's worked in a service industry will know that there's no end of snowflakes with a reason why the rules and company policies shouldn't have to apply to them. Plus you'll get loads of complaining to the business' workers that they need to do something about somebody not following the rules, when apparently it's not there job to enforce it. You'll get customers complaining about staff not wearing masks while they have to, and so on. How is a shop cashier supposed to ID a person for an age restricted product if that person can't show their face to match their photo ID?

My union has said we are not expected to enforce the rule but in practice I guess we will have to.

"I cant breath thought the mask"
"It fogs up my glasses" actually thats an legitimate reason, you can get some stuff that stops them from becoming fogged up, but not everybody will have it.

Expecting a lot of Karens and gammon's generally being d**kheads about it.

Actually reading the posts from these people on Twitter that are anti wearing a mask is funny.

I have been getting one of my Facebook friends doing similar stuff, today was a rant about where places have gone temporarily cashless so it now means cash will cease to exist and the kiddywinks can't odd job for farmers for pocket money etc, usual level of Bowlarks.

It's not that life changing, hell half of them probably went through that stupid phase as yooves of keeping their faces covered with scarves etc to try and look Gangsta and it's literally for the duration of the time you are in the shop which most sane people don't spend long doing.

Cash in hand doesn't nessarcerily stop because of cashless-ness, you just use a digital payment method the same way you'd lend a mate a fiver or tenner.
To the Goverment though it will always be a no no as it's undeclared earnings, they just wont generally go after small amounts as it's not worth it but don't expect them to help if theres an issue.

I'm hoping some level of normality becomes avalible dentistry and medical wise soon, pre lockdown I'd paid up and booked to get a fair bit of work done as 2 teeth are in a bad way after being exposed more when I had broken ones removed and pretty much all of my wisdom teeth are impacted and growing sideways, the lower left is so bad its pressuring the jaw (which isn't great as it was damaged when I was 11) and traps a lot of stuff which causes infections.
I'm also getting more problems related to the Tramadol now which is something I need to sort with the pain clinic but I won't go too much into here.
