Do I Look Tired To You?
Last week was really boring and I didn't have anything to blog about. This week is looking very similar. But, I'm sitting here at work, trying to think of something interesting to blog about and decided to rant about what I like to call...."The Curse of the Bedroom Eyes".
"The Curse of the Bedroom Eyes" can be summed up as: For some reason I always look sleepy to people and they usually feel to tell me about it. It's irritating. Seriously, if it's not "You look tired!" it's "You just need to smile!" Maybe it has something to do with how hard I work...I'm just too busy being productive to think about grinning all the time? No....I don't think that's it.
The other half of the whole situation is that people feel free to make the comment. It's like..."Well, hi there...you look terrible!" Didn't they ever learn to not say anything if they can't say something nice?
It took me years to come up with a proper response, because, what do you say..."Thanks." Instead I usually say..."That's not good." or "Why is that?".....I try to throw it back at them and make them feel uncomfortable (cause it's just more fun that way).
This morning I must really have been tired because I didn't even bat an eye before replying, "Well, that's a horrible thing to say." I think I really made they guy feel bad....I didn't mean to and tried to play it down. Anyway, I guess I need to work harder at looking cheery and alert all the time....but I get tired just thinking about attempting that...
