    I often read how ‘some’ people have little respect for others when it comes to social distancing, so yesterday me and my daughter waited for lift in the Alhambra alongside 2 late 50’s woman and a old guy on his own, the doors opened and we entered, one of the 2 woman then went on to make a comment to her friend about how they’d wasted there time in waiting on there own to use the lift to which I replied ‘what the hell we supposed to do then’ the cheeky cow then went on to make a comment about how the old gut was breathing to which I asked ‘shall we all stop breathing then’........this lady’s cheers rudeness pissed me off, if she had asked us politely not yet to enter the lift, although I may have rolled my eyes I would’ve respected her wish but to open her gob like that was a total piss take in my opinion, if people feel so strong about even daring to mix with others then keep you thoughts to yourself

    I would never have thought that they’d have an Alhambra in Barbados.

    People like that need to stay at home. The world is too dangerous a place for them, obviously...

    It’s not that hard to read

    Some people have seriously lost the plot mate. And they want everyone else to feel bad because actions that were once deemed normal (standing next to someone; breathing in a lift etc) don't align with their new, government-approved paranoia.

    Ps I have always respected social distancing and recognise that some could be seriously ill and need to space, but I've still had people looking terrified in the cheese aisle in Sainsbury's because I've had to squeeze past them to get to the gouda. Genuine fear in their eyes. These people should seek help, because I genuinely worry about their mentality and what's happened to it.

    My view as well. If you don't feel safe going somewhere don't go there. Don't expect others to change their day to accomodate yourself.

    What an unbelievably selfish thing to say.

    Both of your posts, and the OP, are a result of a mainstream media that did a truly terrible job of reporting on Covid.

    We don’t cover cases going backwards, only forwards. We don’t truly dive in to the data and use it suit whatever headline we’re trying to write. If there’s ever any positivity on cases or hospitalisations, rather than communicate that they look for alternative negative data about schools or different segments of society. It’s continuous and should be investigated really. What was their objective? Because providing us with accurate information and challenging the government at every turn wasn’t it - as proven by Peston et all with their unbelievably poor questions on the daily briefing.

    There’s a video doing the rounds of a flight in the US. The young guy next to an old couple, who were in full mask and head covering with plastic screen, having an absolute meltdown because he takes his mask off to eat on the flight.

    Personally, I’ve always respected social distancing because why would you get any closer to strangers than you need to (and it’s also polite). You didn’t need Covid to make you aware of that. But there are some overly sensitive responses now to what is purely normal and respectful behaviour.

    I didn't go to the match yesterday, reason being I've got a nasty cold which is now on my chest. Done 3 tests all negative, however I didn't fancy sitting in the Ponty End coughing my guts up. In pre covid times folk might not have minded as long I covered my mouth. However these still aren't normal times. Since having covid and long covid colds seem to go straight to my chest and I feel rubbish. Didn't want to make folk feel uncomfortable sat around me or to run the risk of spreading my germs.

    Oh and I still wear a mask whenever I'm in public places, the only time I don't is when I'm in a pub (after taking a seat). Usually when going out for a meal in an establishment which is still providing plenty of space.

    Them but at no time prior to us getting in did they ask us to hold fire which I would’ve, what pissed me off was the snide remarks like we had done something wrong

    Bang on. And I'm reluctant to blame people, I blame the media and the hysteria, the psychological damage through fear that has been rammed down our throats. The wholly negative reporting that you mention. I still believe in adults making their own choices, using common sense, and being responsible.

    Did they have masks on? When I see people with masks on i do try and give them extra space (not that I'm hugging everyone else mind)
    Sounds like they would have been better just politely asking you not to get in with them.
    Though I would say if someone is particularly worried (for whatever justifiable reasons) Saturday afternoon shopping may not be the "safest" option.

    If people are wearing masks. I try give them some space. I personally only wear em now in an environment where it makes complete sense. (to me that is) Eg Health centres. If I saw someone wearing a mask waiting to get in the lift. I’d take it as given that they wouldn’t want to share. The Alhambra has escalators at both ends. Except to the upper car park. Which is a walk on the stairs. Unless as in JC’s case. With child. or pram, or in ill health. ( also some feel unsteady on escalators,) I don’t see much reason to use the lift.

    I was in the car park mate or I would’ve 100% used the escalator
