It is not only common courtesy to cover up one’s face to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, but in some places, it is required. Yet, that wasn’t apparent for one right-wing Costco shopper.
“I’m not doing it because I woke up in a free country,” this shopper whined on his cell-phone camera after a Costco employee asked him to put a mask on, in accordance with company policy.
The employee even introduced himself, saying, “Hi everyone, I work for Costco and I’m asking this member to put on a mask because that is our company policy.” Identified as Tison on his work badge, the employee then took the cart away from the shopper, telling him, “You need to leave.”
Costco Tison quickly became a Twitter sensation.
