You asked and you will now receive, the queen has officially returned. The queen, being me, is also older and much much wiser than she was her sophomore year. Now allow me to jump out of third person and hop into the latest inquiries that have been presented to me by my lovely subordinates.
I have awaited many moons to finally receive the best advice around. Now for my proposition; I sit in class next to someone who does not wear their mask correctly. I have seen them wear it on their chin, below their nose, and I even caught them wearing it over their forehead at one point. How do I tell them I’m uncomfortable with their actions?
Sincerely, a worse germaphobe than Ms. Nign
Dear a worse germaphobe than Ms. Nign,
There are very few things that boil my blood as much as someone incorrectly wearing their mask. So as a solution, every time you see their nose or any other facial cavity hanging out, give them a little spook to get their act together. By mentioning you have some oddly specific symptoms, like loss of taste and smell, sore throat, dry cough, and the numbing of your feet, that might actually scare them into wearing a mask. Even laying a good sneeze or cough on them once in a while will do some good. But you didn’t hear that from me. Love you lots and good luck!
