Who was that masked man?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000

I never thought I would see the day when I would walk into a bank wearing a mask and be welcomed. I handed the teller my I.D., but since I was wearing a mask he just took my word that I was the same guy that was on my license. A strange new world in which we are living.

In the last two weeks, I have been doing almost all my work virtually. But yesterday I actually had to go into the office and print a document. I wore my mask and made sure to wash my hands as I left the office.

To be honest, I suffer from allergies and right now in AZ all the trees and shrubs are blooming. I have noticed that when I wear the mask that I sneeze and cough much less. The mask does a great job of helping in this regard. I don’t know about the Coronavirus, but I am more comfortable with a mask than without.

This week I will be meeting a new client and will be doing a few in-person showings. I don’t know what she looks like, and she has never met me, so it may be a bit awkward. But if that is what it takes to stay safe it is a small price to pay.

I haven’t decided which of my masks to wear. Should I use the surgical mask? The white dust mask? The blue particle mask? Is there such a thing as a mask faux pas?

Maybe I will just wait and see which shirt I decide to wear and choose my mask accordingly. It is important to make a good first masked impression.

I hope she doesn’t mind that I need a haircut.

Hi Joseph:

This made me chuckle a bit - we are all having new experiences these days, aren't we? Hope things go well with the new client. I say color coordinate if you can! Let us know how it goes!

Joseph hahaha fun post!  My vote is for the gas mask.  But don't expect any new folks will be willing to go much further with you!!!  Just a tad over the top!  As for the allergy stuff....it's been quite the year and today is one of the worst I heard. Maybe a mask for that is a good idea.

Yes, I can wear the mask for my allergies and not look like a weirdo.

Hi Joseph- I went into a liquor store a few weeks ago with my black mask on!!!! And I too have allergies and asthma and am very conscientious of coughing when I'm out. I know it's the allergies but I don't want them to be frightened.

It is a strange worlds we are dwelling in Joseph.  A few months ago, if you walked into a bank with a mask on, they'd fear a hold-up.  Now, they are relieved because you are protecting them from coronavirus.
