Woman Refuses to Wear Mask at Bakery Because 'Pants Don't Block Fart Smells' | 22 Words

A viral video has shown a woman refusing to wear a mask in a bakery, and her reasoning behind her decision is completely and utterly ludicrous.

These days, it seems that some people have forgotten that we are in the midst of a global pandemic.

Even though the numbers of infections are steadily dropping in many countries, our country continues to be one of the worst affected.

There are currently over 2 million actives cases of the virus here in America...

And it just doesn't seem to be phasing people anymore.

Many individuals seem to be forgetting that the virus is passed on through close contact...

Such as coughing, sneezing, and touching things with your bare hands.

And this is exactly why government officials have been stressing the importance of wearing facemasks in public spaces.

Wearing a protective face covering, combined with other measures such as hand-washing and social distancing, has proven to have a remarkable effect on the spread of viruses.

So, as we slowly ease out of the pandemic...

State officials across the country have made it compulsory to wear a facemask while out in public spaces.

Even President Trump has encouraged people to wear their facemasks...

And we all know his precarious history with following the rules.

The majority of us have been abiding by these newly enforced rules...

Wearing a facemask seems like a small sacrifice if it means avoiding a second lockdown, doesn't it?

But, sadly, not everyone has been understanding the severity of the problem.

Of course, there are countless individuals who seem set on completely disregarding the rules.

In the last month, numerous stories of these rulebreakers have been emerging...

And it's safe to say that many of us are feeling pretty ashamed to be a part of the human race right now.

The stories just get wilder...

This month, someone even pulled out a gun in Walmart when a member of staff asked him to wear a mask. What kind of world do we live in?

But, this week, a new story has emerged...

And this time, people are simply in shock over the sheer stupidity of the person involved.

The latest facemask debauchery happened in Chico, California.

A video, which was originally posted onto Facebook, shows a customer in a Panera Bread bakery branch refusing to wear a facemask.

The woman has been nicknamed as "Karen" and "Panera Patty" by amused social media users...

In the video, she could be seen standing defiantly with a blue facemask clutched in her hand as the bakery staff asked her to cover up her face.

With this, the woman whipped out her phone and proceeded to film the staff, saying:

"So you're not going to serve me because I'm not wearing a mask?"

Customers behind her could be heard standing up for the staff members...

And one irritated customer said: "No, they’re not going to serve you because you’re not wearing a mask, that’s exactly right. Just put on a mask! You give such an aura. You selfish piece of sh** get out of here. You’re so f*****g selfish."

At this, the woman swung around...

And, smiling mischievously, started blowing air in the face of the stunned customers.

And, believe it or not, that wasn't even the worst part.

When the customers told her to "grow up", she went on to explain her point of view as to why she shouldn't have to wear a mask.

And, quite unsurprisingly, her whole reasoning revolves around farts.

Yes, farts. She said: "You think that mask is going to protect you? You fart out your a** you can smell it out of your a**. You think that mask is going to protect you?"

With this, she finally left the bakery...

But she left a pretty foul taste behind in her path.
