Waiting in line


 A familiar scene to many people. When we are in full level 4 lockdown this is what we see outside our supermarkets and shops. In some places there have been reports of people spitting at security guards and refusing to wear masks resulting in being arrested by the police. Most are pretty good and this photo was what I snapped while I was waiting in line at our local supermarket last week, really nice to see everyone standing 2 metres apart while wearing masks.

Good to see folks being patient.
Unfortunately you will always get some unpleasant fools

Early on in the first stages of the pandemic there were grocery store line ups. But it really depended on the time of day. Afternoon, it was guaranteed.

Thankfully I haven't seen anyone being rude to security people but I've only been to the supermarket once since lockdown. That's not quite true, I've done a couple of "Click and Collects". So thankful we have them as I really dislike standing in a queue - for anything.

I hate it when people are nasty and mean to security staff.

Happy Tuesday, Amy.

I'm pleased to say our queuing days are over for the moment. Some days I just couldn't face them and went home again but generally they were ok. They were always silent though as people got used to the wearing of masks.

Wish it was like that here, too. Too many dumbheads, sadly.

Spitting... what ever happened to respect? Will this pandemic ever be over?

Too many selfish people who can only think of themselves.

It would be great if people did that here.

My wife and I wear our masks everywhere inside. We shop and eat at off times and we stay away from crowds.

...the pandemic has taught me to be more patient!

People are lining for grocery like they did in "good", old Soviet Union. :)

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
