you get told, 'you look like you have lost a fiver and found a shilling'
It's almost like 'smile, it might never happen'

I look like I feel, or is that not OK?

Usually - 'If you can't say anything nice - fuck off'.

"What do you expect, I support Newcastle Utd."

FolkGirl Thu 01-Jan-15 17:17:50

Yeah, that. It's hardly a compliment!

Of course it's ok. There is this stupid idea that women are supposed to have a barbie smile on at all times. It's ridiculous.

I like the idea behind this although I wish they'd used a word other than bitchy grin

oh god, forget that. I just watched the end of it. blush that's not a nice ending at all.

Whilst I might want to say FU to IL who said it, it would hardly be well received and unfortunately FU never came easily to me. I need lessons in that.

why not say:

I look like I feel, or is that not OK?

woowoo22 Thu 01-Jan-15 17:28:07

Polite version would be a cold, hare stare with a slow eyebrow raise.

I'm practising it right now. grin

woowoo22 Thu 01-Jan-15 17:28:29

*hard stare

Ardha Thu 01-Jan-15 17:30:28

I think I managed a stare & raised eyebrow.

Amazing what that generation beleive it is OK to comment on isnt it? As long as it isnt about them I suppose.

FunkyBoldRibena Thu 01-Jan-15 17:32:17

Oh - if it is an inlaw then 'I was fine until I saw you'

Jux Thu 01-Jan-15 18:04:43

"So do you", especially if they don't.

"Mind you own fucking business".
