I just finished watching this video about ethical questions and COVID vaccine One of the things which were discussed was a fact that not wearing a mask is a disrespect to everybody around you. I agree with this statement entirely, and that being said – back to masks in the gym. After I published that post, I went to the gym on Sunday and discovered the sign requiring to wear masks on the gym door:
I thought that having this sign is out there I will feel comfortable calling out the maskless people. But when the situation presented itself, I didn’t say a world. That kind of behavior does not make me look good, but it is what it is. I quite literally felt scared around these big guys!
Now, I need to decide whether I will be ready “to say something,” or I should just stop going to the gym till the end of March!
My name is Henrietta (Hettie) Dombrovskaya. I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russian (actually, back then – Leningrad, USSR) in 1963, and immigrated to the United States in 1996.
I love Saint Petersburg, the city I was born and raised in, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Similarly (but differently) I love Chicago, and can’t imagine myself moving somewhere else in the observable future.
I have three children, Igor, Vlad and Anna, all adults living on their own, and one (so far) granddaughter Nadia. I also believe that my children are the best thing that happened in my life.
As for my professional life, I am working in the field of Information Technologies. When I was twenty, I’ve declared that the databases are the coolest thing invented and that I want to do them for the rest of my life. Thirty plus years later, I still believe it’s true, and still, believe that the databases are the best. These two statements together imply that I think a person can have it all, and indeed, I think so! Keep reading my journals to find out how I did it.

That is astounding that they aren’t wearing masks. I have been so proud of our Chicago area for their adherence compared to what I’ve experienced going to FL in January to take care of an elderly relative. I was beside myself with anxiety every time we’d stop at a gas station on the highways and I’d have to use a restroom, so many people were maskless. Florida was just as terrible. I couldn’t wait to get back to the snow and cold of Chicago for some COVID normalcy. From what I observed, I think it’s a testosterone-linked mental deficiency in common sense.

Yes! And this is specifically suburban gyms problem. To be fair many of them required masks all along, but I am in the constant fight with this particular one.
