However, new CTV footage of an elderly chap mistaking a service station’s slushie machine for hand sanitiser could well be the image that defines 2020.

“Better effort than half the young hard nuts who don’t give a shit about sanitisation,” penned another.
While another added: “Poor bugger just trying to do the right thing – he could have someone really poorly at home.”
