This weekend some friends and I decided to meet for lunch downtown Boise. After circling the block few times I found a parking space and rushed over to the restaurant only to be told that I couldn’t walk in without a mask. It was at that very moment that I realized the new law had kicked in and I needed a mask. The restaurant was kind enough to offer a mask and even though we sat on the patio I still took the mask so that I could avoid getting a ticket after leaving the establishment. My point is that, it wasn’t a big deal, the restaurant was following the letter of the law and I was happy to comply. Today I heard about the group that left a mask with the words “Fu** Off” at Big Jud’s in Boise for a 19 year old waitress that was just doing her job. I have a few words of my own for the person that left that mask on the table… “To Go” look into it and while you’re at it look into the mirror. What if that was your daughter that was serving that table? What if that was your mother? What if that was someone leaving that mask for the 19 year old you?

 

At the end of the day this preventative measure is not about you, it’s about everyone else.
