12:41pm on Friday, 1st May, 2020:
I decided to shop before lunch today, rather than afterwards, to see if the queues at Sainsbury's were shorter.
There were no queues, and there were fewer people in the shop, too. However, more of them were wearing masks or gloves. This means that more of them were oblivious to social distancing rules.
I don't know whether it's the case that people wearing masks or gloves believe themselves to be invulnerable, or whether the kind of person who wears masks and gloves thinks more about themselves than others, but that's how things stand at the moment.
I dare say things will change if we're all required to wear masks at some point. At the moment, though, they're a handy signal that the person sporting them may decide to act in a way not conducive to maintaining a 2-metre diameter collision box.
