Just for fun occasionally

I do 😉

You mean stick your tongue out?

And no, I don't.

CastleOfDoom Sun 15-Nov-20 11:57:28

No, why would you? confused

Do you put your hand inside your mask and pull your tongue? I don't understand why you would do this.

IhateBoswell Sun 15-Nov-20 11:59:53

I don’t, no. Did you always get the urge to do it when you were unmasked or something? 😂

WutheredOut Sun 15-Nov-20 12:01:20

God yes!

Al1langdownthecleghole Sun 15-Nov-20 12:01:26

Absolutely. It's the only upside.

It makes me feel better when people are rude.

Bluntness100 Sun 15-Nov-20 12:01:48

No.

Callcat Sun 15-Nov-20 12:02:47

I don't, but I do mouth swear words at people's dick behaviour and also mouth sing songs 😆

How do you pull it? By putting your hand inside your mask?

No, of course not, why would anyone do that?

Yep. And I silently mutter things I wouldn’t usually say. It’s one of the best bits of all this virus and I will miss wearing a mask when it’s over.

I’m pretty sure OP meant STICK their tongue out rather than PULL, which may be the reason for some of the incredulous replies

Really? That's a he'll of anautocorrect grin

Still no because I'm not 4 years old

That really made me laugh

Come on, those going on about pulling your tongue with your hand, you know exactly what the op meant!

I don’t, but I always forget I’m wearing it otherwise I would. Unfortunately people can still see my eye roll grin

As a side note, I don’t think I realised how much I used a smile as a form of communication before. To say thank you, hello, or whatever. When I realise that they can’t see it, it’s often too late and I walk off worrying I have looked rude!

no - why risk a soggy mask?
I do silently mouth "fuck you" a fair bit though .

AlwaysLatte Sun 15-Nov-20 12:21:18

People are so pedantic on here!
No, but I might now (starting with a few MN pedants)
😛

Jigglypuffler Sun 15-Nov-20 12:22:18

No. But I definitely mutter sweary passive aggressive comments to total strangers far more than I need to... I'm hoping I don't carry that on as a habit when (if?) masks in shops are no longer a thing! 😂

How do you pull it? By putting your hand inside your mask
Don't be silly.
Its a figure of speech. Some people say ' pull your tongue out others say 'stick your tongue out
Surely you knew that or could have worked it out.
Anyway. No i don't do that and haven't stuck my tongue out since I was a small child.

ShowOfHands Sun 15-Nov-20 12:26:54

I have noticed people being ruder whilst wearing masks. You can still hear muttering and see the accompanying eye roll whilst wearing a mask you realise. It's hard that we are all having to slow down, wait a bit longer, keep our distance but the nastiness I've seen recently is unpleasant.

Bit like people in cars who swear/gesticulate because they're in a protective bubble.

I've genuinely never heard that and it makes no sense as an alternative to stick your tongue out

I've even just googled it to see if I've missed a saying whole life and it's not coming up for me as an alternative phrase.

Is it a very regional thing?

Witchend Sun 15-Nov-20 12:38:26

Ds tells me he does at school. He also likes being able to yawn in lessons.

No. I've never heard sticking your tongue out referred to as pulling your tongue out. It makes no sense. Maybe it is a regional thing and I just wasn't aware.

Nicolastuffedone Sun 15-Nov-20 12:49:20

No, never.....but then I’m an adult

merryhouse Sun 15-Nov-20 12:52:07

"put" your tongue out makes more sense (though "stick" is what I would always use: it goes with the concept better). Maybe OP has just always misheard?

I don't do that, but I have frequently yawned hugely grin
