One of the reasons I’m good at my job is that people will just talk to me. They’ll open their mouths and tell me things they probably shouldn’t, and that I probably don’t even want to know. Maybe it’s my sad eyes? Who’s to say.
However, this is not relegated only to professional interview situations. People have always thought they could just say things at me, up to and including the following list of things that have really stuck in my craw.
“You were more fun when you drank more.”
“Just let it roll off your back, since you’re so good at rolling onto it.” [YES, SOMETIMES I LIVE IN A SOAP OPERA.]
“That’s before we knew you were vile and treacherous.”
“I’m not surprised you’re single. You’re a pretty miserable person.”
“You’d be really hot if you’d just shut up.”
“I like your haircut. It makes you look less like an unformed fetus.”
“I like your haircut. It makes you look less sickly.”
“You shop at H&M? Then there’s no reason why you dress the way you do.”
