UGH. Ran over to CVS a little while ago to pick up a prescription; probably should have used the drive-thru, but I also wanted more gloves a few other things. Anyway, walked up to the pharmacy counter and asked for the prescription. The technician retrieved it and was just getting ready to ring it up when she suddenly lowered her mask and sneezed. I **think** she sneezed into her arm, but I'm not 100% sure. I was sort of stunned. She immediately used hand sanitizer as she handled my bag, and there is an acrylic shield to separate pharmacy workers from customers, and I had a mask on, but that was a major ICK moment. :( You'd think a pharmacy worker, of all people, would know better.

When I got to the car, I took the pills out of the bag and threw the bag in the trash by the store. Sanitized my hands like crazy. Changed my clothes and washed my hair when I got home. I'm sure that was over-kill, but I was just so paranoid and grossed-out by the sneeze.

I don't understand how she could do the exact opposite of what she should do!

I just don't get it. I swear, it is really getting harder and harder for me to go anywhere.

I'd mention this to the pharmacy.

I did. I don't want to get anybody in trouble, but that person really should know better.

I had to think of you today, Sef. I went to CVS to pick up prescriptions, but luckily, no one sneezed or coughed on my bags (as far as I know).

I thought I was free and clear until someone backed into my car in the parking lot. :(

Oh well, no one was hurt and the other driver was wearing a mask too.

I'm sorry about your car! I remember last year being rear ended and pushed into another car by an older driver. It was sad.

Oh no! I'm sorry, Tracis! Dang. :( I'm glad you are okay. How bad is the car damage?

Just cosmetic damage. Nothing serious, thank goodness!

Still stressful, especially on top of all the other stress.

I hope the car is OK. Even minor damage can be costly.
