Clara: I'm just gonna take my kid out of school.
Clara: They're putting in a mask mandate.
Shelba: Those Socialist bastards!
Marta: But it'll stop the COVID spread.
Clara: The school can't tell me how to raise my child.
Shelba: ... and masks don't work anyway. I know a person who wore TWO masks and still got COVID.
Marta: Well, my kid has autism and is also prone to infection, so if everyone wears a mask, he'll be protected from possibly catching it.
Clara: Well my kid has autism too and he can't function if anything take away his personal liberty. He can't wear a mask or he'll have a panic attack and become uncontrollably violent.
Shelba: And my kid has autism and if she can't see other kids' faces, she can't work on her social cues.
Clara: Your friend who got COVID, is she better now?
Shelba: Oh yeah, she's fine.
Marta: That's good.
Shelba: Yeah. She gave it to her husband though and he died.
Clara: Oh, sorry to hear that.
Shelba: It's OK. He was all for the mask mandates in school.
Clara: Ah! A Socialist.
Shelba: Looks like.
Marta: Was he autistic as well?
