You know what I realized today really pisses me off? When someone says “Hey, I have that shirt/those pants/those shoes/that scarf/etc.” Is that supposed to be a compliment? That we share a fashion sense, or part of one? If you like it, tell me you like it. I’m assuming you like it because you just told me you own it. If you don’t like it, why do you own it, and are you judging me for still wearing old fashions or something?
If it’s not supposed to be a compliment, and it’s not supposed to be a petty judgment, then…what is it? “The conversation got a little boring there for a minute when we stopped talking about me, but I shut you down by looking disinterested.” Oh fabulous. I’m so glad we’re chatting like this. I really feel like I’m getting closer to you on a personal level.
Are you trying to connect us on a more personal level? Because if that’s it, geez, that’s a pretty shallow level.
