Yesterday, a colleague told me out of the blue, “OMG, you have so many grey hairs!”
Well, first of all, it’s not many. It’s just a few. Second, I didn’t have time to color my hair. I was too busy watching Sherlock and chillin’ on my sofa, thank you very much.
So I stared at this lady point blank and said, “Now tell me something I don’t know.”
If you’re having a hard time imagining it, here’s a picture of moi as I said it:
So this girl just stared at me, completely befuddled. And then she changed the subject. I literally left her speechless and it was AWESOME.
She didn’t mean any harm, by the way. We judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions, and that’s not exactly fair. So her intentions were good, but her action?
Not so much.
On the same day, another girl said, “OMG, your jumper is horrendous, you need to get rid of it yesterday.”
To which I replied, “No way, it’s comfortable as fuck.”
Here’s a picture of said jumper:
I love that jumper, because I got it in a FANTASTIC promotion. It was almost for free, seriously, and it’s a freaking Polo Ralph Lauren.
Did I mention that this girl was wearing a basic jumper with a hoodie? Like a gangster or whatever? So no, lady, I’m not getting rid of my jumper.
I guess the lesson we can take from this is RESPECT yourself.
