Grocery store has bracelets people can take to let others know not to bother them (or bother them.)
Who are the stupid fucks that buy into this bullshit?
And is this supposed to stop Karens?
Metcalfe’s in southeastern Wisconsin is offering red wristbands for individuals who want to have no contact with others, yellow for those okay with an elbow bump and green for people willing to share a hug or a high-five, according to WISN 12 News. Thus far, the store has seemingly gotten positive feedback from customers.
“If nothing else, it will probably put a lot of other folks at ease,” customer Howard Ellis told WISN 12.
“I think it’s great. I like shaking hands and hugging, so I’m getting me a green,” said customer Melissa Thomas.
“As we continue to experience relaxed restrictions and updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention related to COVID — vaccines, face coverings, social distancing and so on — we realized there would be different comfort levels with these changes among our team members and shoppers,” said Metcalfe’s president and co-owner Tim Metcalfe.
“Everybody’s not ready to just open up, take their mask off and hug everybody,” another customer added.
The store is not requiring face coverings for vaccinated customers or employees. Unvaccinated shoppers and workers will have to continue wearing a mask, with the exception of children under age five or a medical condition making it difficult to wear one.
