Bagel Shop Customer Coughs On Woman Who Calls Her Out For Not Wearing A Mask
The incident took place in a New York City bagel house, where the first woman, who was not wearing a face mask, can be seen picking up her order.
Another woman waiting in the queue pointed her out to an employee at the cafe, saying that she is putting people at risk by not wearing a face covering. The first woman overheard the complaint and quickly lost her temper, shouting: "Say it to my face!"
She then grabbed her bag and walked over to the queue, coughing in the face of the woman who called her out.
The second woman shared a post on Facebook, which read: "Words truly cannot express my disappointment in humanity these days. I know there are bigger problems in the nation right now but more and more it seems the people who are just trying to stand up for the right things are getting bulldozed by bullies.
"I was getting my bagel and noticed a patron who was coughing, not covering her mouth, and not wearing a mask.
