Derisive driver makes fun of masking

“Ha ha ha, you look ridiculous! Relax, there is no pandemic,” said a young man through his open car window.

The target of his remark was a driving instructor sitting in the passenger seat of an adjacent car, waiting at a red light, with a student at the wheel. This driving instructor, wearing a face shield, as directed, ignored the insulting person. That was the right thing to do.

My rage is sometimes hard to control. I fantasize about having a spray bottle filled with virus, and spray such a derisive person in the face, insuring that he/she becomes ill.

This virus, and others to come, may be how the Homo sapien population is knocked back, to regain a more balanced planetary ecosystem.

Sadly the virus is not smart enough to target the derisive people who think there is no pandemic.
