Longish Costa queue and some young buck with his filly in tow drops his mask below his chin and sidles right up behind me. Politely ask him to move back, and he 'advises' very impolitely that I should move closer to the person in front, ignoring the huge feck orf distancing markers on the floor those in front of him were all occupying.

Nearly lost it with the little scroat, before I remind myself of my age ! :LOL:

I quite like meandering around Tesco at a leisurely pace, and even more so since we discovered scan as you shop a while back. Don’t think I’ll ever go back to queueing at a checkout again, especially as the bulk of our shopping now is click and collect.

You pick the stuff you want off the shelf, and put it in the bag that helps putting away in the store cupboard. You get the little reminders about that items offer (e.g 4 for £2). No more loading and unloading until you get to your car. Pay and then go. 35 minutes I reckon it takes me to do our shopping, tops. Why so people still do it the old fashioned way?

That's when I would start coughing in his general direction.

That would be my first reaction but not too sure it is wise Swanny.

Matey is clearly a count but may have a degree of low cunning. Ponder this: he has witnesses of you coughing in his general direction and summons Plod or one of them Covid marshals* and accuses you of trying to infect him. And when you are having to explain you may be losing.

Sometimes better just to walk away.

Uncle Al here to recommend caution.

* Did they recruit any ?
