Today I got on the elevator in my building for work. A man was already on there.
The doors shuts.
He looks at me and the conversation goes a little like this:
Stranger: wow, bad day?
Me: Nope, everything is good actually…..?
Stranger: Your face looks upset, you look mad!
Me: Meh.. I get that a lot when I am not smiling. I look pissed off, but I’m not. That’s just my regular face!!
Stranger: Oh, that’s too bad.
Maybe I’m just a cold hearted Bitch and people are seeing through to the real me.
I really don’t know how to explain it but it sure is annoying.
It seems that since college I have acquired a certain “look”. It is my face in neutral. When I am not talking or showing specific happiness in a smile or a laugh, I look angry. I don’t know why. People I knew would approach me at parties, bars, dinner, wherever I was out at and ask me
Strangers at bars would approach me and say ” you look pissed, what’s up!?”
Nothing….am I not allowed to sit here and just be content?
I feel just fine, normal, me. But to others I look upset, angry or sad.
It seemed random at first but then started happening frequently enough that it became annoying. It still IS annoying. I am not making this up. People I don’t know approach me frequently and say ” Smile!” or “You know, it’s okay to smile!”
I want to flip these people off.
I swear I am not doing it on purpose.
Anyone else have this problem!?
