Nose Counting

Post by Lunaticonthegrass » 20 Aug 2020, 09:48

One of my London-based friends posted this on Facebook earlier today:

"I propose a new game for those of us who now have to use the London Underground again. Its called 'nose counting'.
Theory that virtually everyone not properly adhering to the mask rule has their nose exposed - so how may uncovered noses can you spot within the station / tube trains on a single journey?"

Something to add interest and worry to every journey you now make. Maybe we could devise a point scoring system?

Incidentally, this game can also be played in supermarkets and other large, enclosed public spaces.

Do remember that not everybody should be vilified for not wearing a face covering as there is a sizeable group of people that have perfect legitimate exemptions.

I assume he's referring to the non-exempt people who have a mask but it only covers the mouth or chin.

Can we get extra points for people who take their mask off to cough all over their hands then put it back on again (as seen at Bank last week).
Not a plus one :wink:

Very valid point. Do not assume that everybody around you needs to wear a mask. Instead, turn it into a silly game.

Is that supposed to be sarcastic?
