I am in the bus going home from work as of this writing. I started wearing medical masks of the ordinary kind the very first day I started working again, which was 2 weeks ago. I am now in the day shift which makes me take the train less, so I take the bus more often than ever before to and from work. Regarding the mask, today, and I mean just earlier, when the bus was so full; I noticed that no one wants to sit beside me. I am currently sitting in the 3 seater seat near the very back of the bus and an old guy in his early 40s (I think) is sitting beside the window on the same seat where I am at. I caught him staring at me like I'm some sick guy. Earlier, the bus was so full, there were a lot of people standing, and almost nobody dared to sit beside me even if I was already moving towards the window. I think there were only two people who sit beside me and both transferred seats when they had the opportunity, even if the seat was only in front of where they were and it was just as full.
So this mask makes me look like some sick guy? It does bother me in a way, it did actually, but why would I be bothered about what other people think about me, when it is my own health that I am protecting. They are just effing scared, I can't blame them; so am I, I don't want to catch any opportunistic infections along the way while I'm commuting.
In all fairness, I was hurt.
