    ..according to reports on the BBC before the UK can return to 'normal'. Well, if it has to be, it has to be but even that should be dependant on how things go. At least it will give more time to vaccinate more people to protect the selfish ant-vax morons who go round with their ears and eyes covered but their mouths wide open!

    Only this Saturday when Mrs Mottie was in a restaurant with her friends, a group of three (one man and two women) were turned away from the restaurant because they turned up without face coverings. They were very annoyed. Some diners that saw it, clapped and cheered the employee who gave them the good news. :LOL:

    I was standing outside a restaurant.
    A group of 4 men arrived and one of them asked if they had space.
    Waiter said yes, but they MUST wear a mask, wash hands with alcohol and use the nhs app.
    One of the man says that they're sitting outside.
    Waiter insists that they need to do all of that.
    At this point i think the men started messing about with the waiter because they said they didn't have mobile phones.
    Waiter said they couldn't be served if they didn't follow the commandments.
    The men waited outside a few minutes, a large group of people arrived, around 15 of them.
    They were discussing where to go and restaurant owner came out.
    All of a sudden there was no need for any mask, alcohol or app.
    The men laughed at him and went to the other restaurant over the road.
    The owner was shouting and screaming at the waiter and kicked him out.
    Told him never to come back.
    Quite a scene...
    There was no cheer from the people around...
    What a knob!

    You can always be sure that the tales trotted out by @johnny2007 are perfectly true

    Or maybe not.

    No Mask needed if you are exempt! You also don't need to prove it.

    It's the Government's fault that the rule around mask exemption is so lax.

    I have seen numerous videos on TT where people are challenged in supermarkets about not wearing a mask. In one, the police are called - what? - then the police demand proof of exemption and when it is not forthcoming the person is arrested!!

    Some police in this respect are so ill-educated, it beggars belief!

    Yes, we would like all people to wear a mask, but HMG gave everyone a get out of jail free card there.

    True, and I agree with most of that for an individual but when a whole group or family claims exemption I think there’s a very good chance they are taking the **** and if they have that couldn’t-care-less attitude, I consider them to be an above average risk and I don’t want them around me.

    No, in this life.
    Ask any waiter and they'll tell you a lot more unbelievable stories.
    I witnessed that with my eyes and the stupid waiter deserved a kick in the teeth for his attitude.
    If I was the restaurant owner I wouldn't have sacked him, but beaten him.
    Wasting a 15 seat trade for a stupid mask and a useless app after being shut for a year.

    So a waiter, paid close to minimum wage, does his job as he supposed to, and you'd kick him in the teeth and beat him up?
    I'm guessing you've never won Boss of the Year.

    If it wasn't so serious it's rather funny reading pro jabbers comments, since they are blaming those who would rather wait and see what the outcome of a long term untested 'vaccine(s)' may be...

    But it's become the normal behaviour in the last few years of many who don't question what they are being spoon fed!

    No sympathy if a few years down the line pro jabbers get sick or die, because their vitriolic rhetoric will be remembered!
