    HK in the power of madmen?

    This morning I went to eat a breakfast. the only free sit was in between two occupied. The free sit had safety+ label which clearly meant we are fighting the virus. I took the sit then.
    At some point the staff approached me and ask to move to the sit on the left, just shoulder by shoulder by the other customer.
    I have ignored that. After 1min seconds the staff accepted that with a pain on the face.
    HK is in the power of madmen.

    Holy shit. Someone asked you to move to a different seat? How do you have the will to even post or do anything anymore? I'd presume your will would be broken.

    It's about having some perspective before going all hyperbolic...

    This is Geo, have you noted the shit that gets raised here?

    The post is valid, not that I need it but the unadulterated, mind-numbing bullshit that local people come up with in the name of following the rules goes to show that regardless of the creative vision of our imprisoned lawmakers there would always be a whole army of mindless automatrons ready to drag this town down.

    But... exactly? That's the point? There's much worse/more valid mind-numbing shit around here. And someone lets THIS ruin their day?

    Perspective... get one.

    So you walked into a restaurant, sat down at a seat that had some kind of "Do no sit" mark on it (was it a small restaurant that tries to space out customers on every second seat?), staff directed you to sit somewhere else, you refused, staff rolled their eyes at you. Do I have this correct?

    One part I dont understand. Who is the madmen? Do you mean the restaurant staff for their seating arrangement? Or the government for forcing the restaurant to adopt the said seating arrangement?

    In y.o.u.r. opinion.

    I think that the observation that HK's problems run deeper than only the jackboots in charge is something worthy of being reminded.
