Home Depot ignore advice on masks

To ask a rhetorical question, why did I see during my last and recent visit to Home Depot, mostly unmasked employees not only not social distancing among themselves but also not with customers as well and even talking one foot away directly toward my face when I was checking out in the self-serve area?

Why do so many not understand that the masks the CDC, under Trumps’ guidance, say that we should all wear in public, are to protect others much more than to protect ourselves. And their purpose is to stop people suffering needless, horrible deaths? Why don’t these employees and the majority of the customers as well insist on endangering the lives of strangers with their ignorance, denial, unfounded opinions and narcissism?
