    Okay this thread has gone a bit adrift of its original topic. The thread was started to give examples of the things that we noticed in public, a pictorial diary so to speak of things that are different now. While this discussion skirts that line I definitely don't want to see it go the way others have where it's just people (who shall remain unnamed) on the attack at everyone else who dissent.
    Please pardon my absence from the thread as I have been one of the unlucky ones who have the side effects from the second shot.

    ABBOTT AND COSTELLO’S ‘WHO’S ON FIRST’ ……updated version for 2021

    Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’
    Lou: ‘Why not?’
    Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
    Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
    Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
    Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
    Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
    Bud: ‘Yes.’
    Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
    Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
    Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’
    Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
    Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
    Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
    Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.
    Bud: ‘Ok.’
    Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
    Bud: ‘That’s right.’
    Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Certainly.’
    Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
    Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
    Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
    Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
    Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
    Bud: ‘Absolutely not!’
    Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
    Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
    Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
    Bud: ‘I know.’
    Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
    Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
    Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
    Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
    Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
    Bud: ‘Correct.’
    Lou: ‘Why not?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
    Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
    Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
    Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
    Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’
    Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’
    Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’
    Bud: ‘Third base.’

    Dinner Date 2021

    Wife and I walked in to a restaurant to have dinner tonight….

    Hostess: Hello
    Me: Hi, table for two, please
    Hostess: Sure, and your name
    Me: G
    Hostess: Great. And do you and your guest have your vaccination cards?
    Me: Before we get to that, Can you tell us who our server will be?
    Hostess: Um, looks like Tom will be your server tonight.
    Me: Great. Can you show us Tom’s vaccination card?
    Hostess: Um...
    Me: And also, can you provide me with proof that Tom is not a carrier of HIV, Hepatitis A, or B, or any other communicable diseases?
    Hostess: Um...
    Me: Also, we would prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, mushrooms, heroin, meth, etc, so if you could provide us with Tom’s most recent tox screen, that would be great.
    Hostess: Um
    Me: We of course need to see the same for the Chef, Line cooks, Busboys, You, basically anyone that comes in contact with us or our food.. You understand we are just being safe...
    Hostess: Um... Let me get the manager for you.
    Me: That would be great, thanks! he needs to bring his Vaccination Card too please

    I wish there were a greater designation added other than like. There are times when additional checks, like "Wow, right on, damn good, hit the nail on the head, and why didn't I think of that."

    Anybody here remember when we were in school and the teachers used to talk about the Soviet block? It went something like this:

    "...and they will just randomly stop people on the street and ask for their papers... FOR NO REASON! Can you believe that!?!"

    That was shocking stuff back then.

    I worked for the INS and we routinely stopped folks on the street and asked them for their papers and could arrest them on the spot without warrant.

    You're never as free as you think. Also, perception is not 90% of reality... perception is closer to 100%>
