I’ve already received some favorable replies regarding my proposal to peacefully assert the right of people who aren’t sick in the body – or the head – to peacefully go about their lives, including shop. Here’s one, which I publish for the general edification as well as to inspire others to consider becoming involved – before it becomes too late:
Are you still looking for people to go shopping en masse diaperless? If so, I’d like to join you. I live in Hardy, which is in Franklin County. I have never been hassled for not diapering up in the places I go to around here. If you’re interested, here are the diapering compliance rates I’ve seen around here:
Kroger Westlake – 100% employee compliance (10% compliance if you count wearing it over the nose). 60% shopper compliance which seems to go up a little every time I go there.
Food Lion Moneta – 85% employee compliance. 50% shopper compliance. Food Lion Bennington – 65% employee compliance. 50% shopper compliance.
As the salesman movie Used Cars says: “Those numbers are too fucking high!”
Now the good news. We rented a boat on the lake last Monday and the compliance rate at Gill’s Creek Marina was 0%. When we stopped for lunch at Bridgewater Plaza, the compliance rate for the general public was < 5%. I don’t know what would compel someone to where a diaper outside in 90 degree weather, but oh well. It looked like the wait staff at all of the restaurants were diapered but almost none of the other employees in non-food service businesses were. I felt bad for the girl at Moosie’s taking care of the carry out orders. Her diaper was soaking wet and she kept pulling it down to breathe.
I am! And our little group is growing. I have one good friend willing to participate and he’s a big guy – which may be helpful. I have a few other prospects in mind as well.
We’ll need as many as we can get. The Diapering waxes – in Roanoke. Here’s the lay of the land as of late last week:
Kroger at Cave Spring Corner: 100 percent employee Diapering; 99 percent customer Diapering. Heavy pressure to Diaper. I was hassled by two Kroger Diaper Pushers; I told both to bugger off and continued about my business.
Now the good news:
Up in Floyd, where I actually live, the Diapering rate is almost the opposite. At the local store I regularly frequent, the owner is openly Undiapered – not even pretending – and almost everyone inside is Undiapered, too.
Another store nearby is the same. I personally know the owner of the former and am friendly with the people who work at the latter. They aren’t sick in the head – hence opposed to Diapering of the not-sick in the body.
Another nugget of cheer: My gym does not insist on Diapers and – based on a conversation I had with one of the employees yesterday – they have determined not to, despite The cases! The Cases! The place is an oasis of sanity; it almost seems normal in there. 99 percent not-Diapered members; the workers pretend to Diaper – removing it as soon as they go through the motions of pretending to “comply” with the Coonman’s gesundheitsbefiehls.
I think we’ll want about a dozen people to peacefully assert our right to shop. Have you got any friends who might join us?
Very much appreciate your taking a stand with me!
