A store clerk was left amazed by a customer who had ripped her covid-19 face mask because it ‘makes it easier to breathe’.
Joe Samaan was working his shift at an S J Food Mart outside of Lexington, Kentucky when a woman came in asking to pay for gas.
But unlike the hundreds of other customers Joe sees on a daily basis, the whole in this woman’s protective facewear caught his eye.
Approaching the counter, the woman can be heard saying: ‘Hi there, can I get 10 on pump one please?’
Joe does the customer’s transaction, before asking ‘where did you get that mask from?’
‘Well since we have to wear them and it makes it hard to breathe, this [cutting it] makes it a lot easier to breathe,’ she replies.
Shocked by the stupidity of her response, Joe replies ‘cutting it?’, as the woman nods in agreement.

‘Yeah sure I’ll do that too, thanks for the advice,’ he says as the woman leaves the store.

The number of Kentucky’s new coronavirus cases increased by 253 over the weekend, bringing the state’s total up to at least 5,130.

Revealing the latest figures on Sunday Govorner Andy Beshear added that the infection curve remains plateaued.
‘Overall, that number is, again, right around what we’ve been seeing, even though our testing has ramped up,’ the governor said.
‘It suggests, at the worst, we have plateaued.’
Five more Kentuckians died from virus-related illness, including four senior residents, bringing the total number of deaths to at least 253.
However, it is believed that the figures release on Sunday are lower than average because many processing labs were closed.
