Exactly one of the issues with a mask is that people cannot tell what you are doing. It’s far easier to interpret your perceived thoughts without a mask on.I completely agree!
Thank you for clarifying.
The glaring, or worse, does go both ways. I was on a train out of Leeds a few weeks back and was peering out of the window to see the 91s on Neville Hill. I had the feeling someone was staring and so glanced back, only to be asked very rudely and aggressively ‘what are you looking at?’ I hadn’t previously noticed, but there was an anti-masker across the aisle. I’m not one for conflict (other than on forums) so I shrugged and went back to looking out of the window. More grumbling followed, so I got up and went to another coach.
I agree with you completely though that the government messaging needs to change. The current railway message about showing respect to others by wearing a mask is ridiculous.
