Social Distancing at the Grocery Store

Description (Dublin Core)

There I was, at the grocery store. As I approached the checkout line, I waited, to let the man ahead of me have some space. As he paid I put my groceries on the conveyor, figuring the space between us was more than sufficient. He looked at me and asked, “a little close, aren’t you?” I thought I was sufficiently distant. I said, “ excuse me.” In a perturbed voice, he asked, “Did you see the sign?” What sign? I wondered? I decided to step back and as I stepped back, I looked for the sign. There it was. So, I snapped this picture as he finished. He left. I checked out. As I left the store, I noticed that same guy laughing and joking with his buddies. Not two feet from each other. I laughed to myself. So much for social distancing.
