There’s No Vaccine For Idiocy, Part 2

I’m waiting in line at a pharmacy to get some over-the-counter sinus stuff. A man not wearing a mask is in front of me.

Pharmacy Tech: “Sir, can you please wear a mask?” *Offers him one.*

Customer: “I don’t need no mask. I got the shot. I got papers to prove it!”

With a triumphant flourish, he slaps a piece of paper on the counter.

Pharmacy Tech: “Good for you for getting the vaccine, sir! But you still need to wear a mask.”

He starts shoving the paper at everyone in the vicinity, demanding that they look at it.

Customer: “I don’t need no mask! I got the shot! Look! It says right here!”

I try to back away but alas, I’m not quick enough and I get a good look at the paper. It’s a printout that says:

Paper: “Today’s Date

Mr. [Name] got the Covod vaxine.

Signed, Doctor [Name]”

The typos really made it work. The tech is trying really hard not to laugh in this guy’s face.

Pharmacy Tech: “Sir, you must wear a mask or I won’t be able to serve you.”

He blustered a bit longer, threatening to call the “Vaccine Police” on her but she held firm. Eventually, he relented and wore one that he’d had in his pocket, presumably next to his “vaccine receipt.”

The entire farce was so absurd I wasn’t even annoyed at the waste of time. When he is finally gone I tell the tech:

Me: “You did an amazing job. Have you gotten many like him?”

Pharmacy Tech: *Weary. *****”No, he was the first.”

Her tone made it very clear she did not expect him to be the last. Thanks so much to all pharmacy workers for what you do!
