You are in the drive through line at McDonalds to pick up your morning coffee and a truck the size of a yacht zips in front of you as you pull in.

What a dickhead!

And now this vehicle is emitting toxic diesel fuel exhaust into the air vents of your car. You are beginning to feel dizzy. Breathing too much of this stuff can lead to asphyxiation from carbon monoxide poisoning! There is no escape out of the line so you stay back a cars length. The stupid cars behind you are blowing their horns to “remind” you to move up. STFU! You start to fume (no pun intended). Are you going to die here all because you needed a cup of coffee?

Of course not! It’s COVID time. We all have a treasure trove of masks in our cars, glove compartments, purses, on the floor! Grab one of those babies and put it on. You deserve that cup of coffee!

COVID saves the day!!
