Ron Klever: Poor example of social distancing

On Sunday, May 3, we took a trip to Walmart in Willmar to pick up a few things.

My wife and I were in the check-out line, maintaining our required “social distancing” until our turn to check out.

I was looking around while waiting, only to find two Walmart employees standing less than a foot from one another. I’m not sure if they were male or female, both of their faces were covered.

I politely walked over to them, maintaining “social distancing” and asked where was their spacing? I was told by one of them, later finding out he/she was the store manager.

“We don’t have to.”


You expect customers to comply but “you don’t have to.”

Defiant. It is becoming the norm.

Wake-up Willmar, Minnesota, America.

With this growing attitude of defiance, it’s no wonder of the issues facing us here in the United States of America. Home of the free, because of the brave.
