It is not over yet stupid!

I live in Georgia and I wear a mask every time I go into a facility where there will be others.
I belong to a car club where about a dozen of our members have continued to meet twice a month for a meal at different restaurants. I stopped meeting with them. One died a few weeks ago from the virus and a second one last week.
Today I stopped by a supermarket for two items. When I got to checkout, there was an elderly lady in front of me, so I stood about six feet behind her in the checkout line. Then I felt someone actually breathing on my neck and turned around and a guy was standing that close behind me with no mask.
On my way home, I realized I had forgot something, so I stopped by Walmart. I was there about six weeks ago and a large majority wore masks. This time, I estimate 40% were mask free and that included many senior citizens and others who were obviously in poor health.
What is wrong with people? How can individuals who appear to be intelligent be so ignorant?
