Zack's Anger Diary #585: UnMASKing the Truth

Dear Diary …

I cannot believe I’m about to do this. But you know what? I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna talk about masks.

(Oh my God … am I really gonna do this? Yes. Yes I am.)

So … here’s where I stand on your opinion on masks … I … don’t … care.

“Everyone needs to wear a mask because…”

AHHHH!!! Don’t care!

“I don’t have to wear a mask because…”

AHHHH!!! Don’t care!

It doesn’t matter what your opinion is, because I’m not here to try to change it. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but never in the history of the internet has anyone’s opinion been swayed by anybody else’s craptastic Facebook posts. So I ain’t startin’ now.

You’re entitled to your opinion, and we do not have to agree on everything. That said … in addition to your opinion … there are also rules and guidelines. And whether you like it or not … them’s the rules.

You know what I think about wearing masks? I hate ‘em. But if the rules say I gotta wear ‘em … well then I gotta wear ‘em.

I mean … think about nudists for a second. Preferably good looking nudists … however … we all know that every time we actually see a nudist they’re someone we REALLY didn’t wanna see nude in the first place. (But that’s a whole different Anger Diary.)

Anyway ... You know what nudists hate? Pants.

They don’t like ‘em. They don’t think they serve a good purpose, and they don’t wanna wear ‘em.

And that’s fine. That’s their right to not like ‘em. But you know what they gotta do when they wanna shop at Wal-Mart? PUT ON PANTS!!!!

They’re free to have their pantsless beliefs all they want in the comfort of their own home or at some freaky-deeky resort in Cancun … but when they wanna go to the store to buy a shower curtain … they gotta wear pants.

“Yeah but masks are just the government trying to track us and control us.”

OK tin foil hat … I got some news that’s gonna blow your mind … government don’t need no masks to track us and control us. They’ve been doing it since the beginning of time. You think the government ain’t trackin’ all of us already? Open your eyes junior. This ain’t their first rodeo.

And you know what … beyond all the mask arguing … can we at least agree on one simple thing? There is no need to treat random employees like crap because you don’t like their company’s policy.

You think the person at the register at the grocery store has ANY say in the rules? So why are you yelling at them?

That whole thing is beyond me … why do some people think they have the right to treat others with total disrespect? You think masks are the problem with this world? Well then you got the whole thing backwards … because if we’re not going to even treat each other like human beings … then we’re never gonna get past this stuff.

How would you like it if I came to your work and talked to you like a piece of trash that I didn’t care about? Or what if I did it to your daughter … or your Mom? I don’t think you’d like that, would you? So why are you doing it to somebody else?

Again … I’m not here to try to change anybody’s opinion. I gave that up a long time ago. I’m just asking you to maybe give everything just a little bit more thought next time before you start to act a fool.

Till next time Diary … I say … Goodbye.
