Don’t get caught with your pants down, unless, of course, you need a face mask in a jiffy.
A woman in South Africa avoided getting thrown out of a Pick n Pay supermarket by using her panties as a mask.
Smartphone camera footage captured by Newsflash caught the fantastic intercommunication in which the store guard asked the maskless woman, who was waiting with her cart of groceries in the checkout line, to put on a face mask or leave the shop.
Having no mask handy, the resourceful renegade objects before pausing, probably the second a lightbulb went off in her head.
In the next moment, the cheeky customer can be observed reaching up under of paisley printed skirt, then pulling her black thong lingerie down her legs and up to her face, where she placed it in such a way as to cover her nose and mouth.
“Happy?” she asks sarcastically. A shocked spectator can also be heard saying “Good Lord” from behind the camera.
Meanwhile, another customer standing in line immediately behind the now pants less woman encouraged the stunt, and she said that she thought it was acceptable, it’s a mask, and that quite honestly, the bacteria on your knickers is less than on the mask.
“Well done to you,” she continues with a celebratory clap. “Brilliant.”
However, internet critics weren’t so dazzled and they told the woman to grow up, and what must her family think?
Another added, “This makes me sick. She is aware of the law worldwide. We have a serious virus and (she thinks) a G-string will save her.”
However, these stores should have courtesy masks handy just in case, and it might not be their responsibility, but that’s why it’s called a courtesy mask.
But it was this lady’s thong, and if she was bold enough to put it over her face, so be it, but it was funny and she solved the problem! And sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do, although I don’t believe I would have been that inventive.
