10. My husband hangs his on his rearview mirror when he parks at home

That wasy he always has a face mask with him. He figures the light and heat coming through the windshield sanitizes it.

But that has unfortunate consequences. The other day we dropped our truck off at the mechanic. He, as usual, hung his face mask when he parked it, as his habit.When we got to our one stop on the way home, he didn't have a mask. I lent him mine since he needed to use the rest room, then he bought a disposable and wore it when we both went into the cafe.

Now he puts a face mask with his wallet - which is not foolproof since he forgot his wallet the other day.

I hang it on the direction indicator lever. nt LAS14 Sep 2020 #1
