Maybe if we hadn’t of made it acceptable to wear a mask into a bank….lol

During the midst of the “panic-demic”, I went into Wells Fargo wearing my motorcycle helmet. I was told, that it covered my face, and I couldn’t wear it inside for “security reasons”, and I wasn’t wearing a mask.

Went outside, put on a ball cap, sunglasses, and mandatory mask, and returned to the waiting line with no further trouble.

I can’t remember if I laughed more, or cried more.
