Just Ignore The Remarks

How old do you think this woman is?

One day not long ago, while at a diner, I was one of the many people peering into the cake and pastry display case.

I wanted to return to my table so I turned around and this woman behind me says, “Oh, I thought you were young.” I had clearly surprised her.

One Summer, while attempting to live a fantasy, I was dancer at a Go-Go bar.

The DJ asked me, “How old are you?”

I replied, “33. Why?”

He said, “Because your body looks young but your face looks old.”

I mean, how was I supposed to take those things?

There is a saying where they tell overweight women, “You have such a pretty face.”

I am the opposite of that.

I hate to disappoint, but, a face-lift is not in the budget.

Would I get one if it was?

  1. I used to get asked if I was pregnant all the time. I started replying that I was just fat. People eventually stopped commenting.🤣 ….I wasn’t fat. People are rude.

  3. Oh, Ruby. That’s so wrong. Some people have absolutely zero empathy. You are so kind, so caring and compassionate. You, of all people, deserve kindness from others.

    Years ago, I was given the lead role in a play in a small town theater. It wasn’t something that I had aspired to, the opportunity came my kind of by accident, but I enjoyed the experience very much.

    After the play was over, the director looked pointedly at my legs and said “You know, it’s possible for a woman to have legs that are TOO long.” I mean, what was I supposed to say to that? “Oh, I’m so sorry! I hope my overly long legs didn’t ruin your show!” Grrr. Some people.

    1. Thank you Linda. I’m sorry to hear about the remark you had to take as well. I’m starting to think that some people feel they can judge your looks almost like you are at a pageant or something. People feel free to rate you. I once worked with a guy who was talking about a woman and he said that she was bordering on beautiful. I guess she fell short of plain beautiful. People need to look at themselves! Have a good night 😊

  4. I think I’d go with younger body and older face rather than the opposite. I have a young-ish-looking face, and there were times when people didn’t take me seriously as a result.
