The Look

The Look

I get some really odd ‘looks’ from people when I’m out and about. Today I got that disgusted look from a “young” lady who seemed to think (from the expression on her face) I was somehow a representation of something or one she would never be.

Maybe I’ve gotten old, but I find the attitude of this young snot to be a complete opposite of what I had at that age.

I think I was open, happy, respectful towards others and myself. So really didn’t much appreciate her grumpy attitude, I chose to ignore her.

I otherwise find when I walk past people in the street, they look away when we are close and passing. When I make the conscious effort, always to make eye contact. I always like to catch their eye, smile and acknowledge people no matter where I am.

I don’t need to stop and have a conversation, I just like to think life could be a little better if we could connect, even in this tiny, minuscule way.

I also think it’s respectful.

Is this wrong to think like this?

  • I get stared at a lot too. Even more so when the long hair was purple 😉 I think it may be because ‘disablities’ are still not out there. I don’t always try to connect with eye contact…sometimes it leads to a barage of questions in which I’m in no mood for. Other times I’m smiling at everyone and chatty and it’s funny how some people are falling over themselves to help you (bless them!). But, it is wrong and disrespectful to stare and stare at someone like they’re something in a zoo… :/
