Taxi Driver Gets Suspended For Wearing A Face Mask While Driving
A taxi driver was recently seen wearing a face mask while driving in eastern China
Qianjiang Evening News reported that Chen Yiqun was spotted by a young woman who took a picture of him as he was driving to refuel his car in Zhejiang province on Friday, 19 October.
Chen told the news portal that he began using sheet masks every two to three days since he turned 20.
"I pick all the skincare products for my family. I'm more particular about them than my wife," he said.
The photo of the cabbie's skincare routine went viral on social media. However, it also resulted in him getting a three-day suspension.
Unamused by the 25-year-old's attempt to keep his skin hydrated, local police tracked Chen down to give him a "stern lecture".
Police said that wearing a sheet mask on the job could be dangerous as it could fall off and affect the driver's vision.
Chen was then suspended for three days by his employer.
Meanwhile, netizens found the cabbie's behaviour rather amusing
