I wonder if there is a course for properly wearing N95 masks. Probably can find a good tutorial on youtube...

Maybe but I’m not in there with them to find out.

Do you get distracted a lot by things breaking? It’s great you can fix them but doesn’t it take a lot of time?

That's why we need a few commercials maybe done either by truck drivers or actors who look stereotypically like truck drivers and know enough about the inside of a big rig to at least make the proper moves.

Scene: interior of an 18 wheeler cab. Driver is maneuvering the load up to a dock. Or into an equipment yard. Then he puts on his mask before unsealing the door to do the paperwork.

Driver: (through his mask) "It's a tough job hauling equipment to keep the country going. And part of that job now is to protect customers, family, food service, and other people I come into contact with from catching Covid-19 or giving it to them."

Freight handler: (also through mask) "And 80 percent of all people who have already caught Covid-19 and are able to infect others, show no symptoms at all."

Forklift operator: (also through mask) "Wearing a mask cuts the chances of spreading the virus to less than 1/10th compared to not wearing one."

Warehouse inventory person: (also through mask) "If both infected and uninfected are wearing masks, the odds of infection come down to around 1 in 70 compared to neither at the same distance".

wide angle shot - all persons wearing masks and staying 6 feet or more apart while handling the freight

all in unison: "And social distancing - no closer than six feet at any time, cuts the transmission down even more."

scene fade to a casino blackjack table. Dealer has an ace showing. Hand shows 20.

Narrator: "Never go all in when you should fold. Don't gamble your life or your families' lives. Social distance. Wear your mask properly. And don't give the virus an opportunity to spread."

scene fade to warehouse inventory person who is now at home. She coughs. Takes her temperature - she's running a fever.

voice on phone: "Mommy, when can we come home from Aunt Gertrude's?"

Warehouse inventory person: "After mommy has been well for 2 weeks"

Warehouse inventory person: (to camera) "I'm glad I wore my mask this past 2 weeks. I just wish everyone else on the bus did."

fade to scene of trucker going down the highway

Trucker: "I'm glad everyone wore their mask so I'm not carrying the virus from city to city."

Oh, I get distracted but it only took about 5 minutes to deal with, and now I'm not distracted by sweating profusely in the heat when it should be cool in here.

Otherwise it would have been sweltering until morning, as the slower fix is to just shut off the a/c compressor and leave it that way all night.

I worked with a gal that redid her makeup 2 times a day - at noon and before she left the office to go home.

You are a director, too. You can make a special PSA and shop it around.
