As I said in my OP, if I hadn't been there with a large group of family, I would have told her to suck sand and left. 4 kids in the group and it's their favorite place to eat, so that is the reason I didn't leave. I did pick up the tab and left the waiter a 20% tip. BTW there are exemptions to the mask rule. I qualify for two of them. The gestapo hostess dismissed those legal exemptions and told me it was their "company policy". There are a number of exclusions listed in the ordinance: Anyone under 18 (though wearing a face covering is strongly encouraged) Anyone with a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering (Federal HIPPA and the 4th Amendment to the Constitution prevent anyone from asking what the medical condition is) Anyone eating or drinking, or anyone seated at a restaurant to eat or drink Anyone exercising outdoors or engaging in physical activity outdoors while properly distanced from others Anyone in the car with only people in their own household Anyone conducting business that requires a temporary removal of the face-covering (for example, bank security requirements or someone getting dental work done) Anyone who is swimming Anyone who is voting, assisting a voter, serving as a poll watcher, or anyone actively administering an election Anyone actively engaged in religious worship Anyone speaking for a broadcast or to an audience Anyone performing work where the mask presents or exacerbates a hazard A first-time violation would lead to a warning. Subsequent violations could result in a $100 fine. The mandatory mask ordinance would stay in effect until the city or state end their emergency orders put in place for the pandemic. https://ktul.com/news/local/mandating-masks-in-tulsa-proposed-ordinance-has-multiple-exemptions I'm not the evil person some in this thread are making me out to be. They can suck sand as well and kiss my lily white ass. The mask insanity is the issue and again, I'm not an obedient sheep. I've spent my life always questioning authority and verifying it's authenticity. It's served me well to date and It won't change any time in the near future.
