There’s No Making Up For This

| Working | January 4, 2013

(I work two towns away from my apartment, so I’m only ever at the store when I’m working; I of course dress up to look nice for the job. One day, I come in on an off day to pick up a check.)

Me: “Heya!”

Coworker: “Oh my gosh! You poor thing!”

Me: “…Huh?”

Coworker: “Are you okay?”

Me: “Uhm, yes. Why?”

Coworker: “You look TERRIBLE! Like you’re about to die of plague or something! You must feel awful!”

Me: “Actually, I’m fine. This is just what I look like without makeup.”

Coworker: “…Oh.”

(I wasn’t actually upset by it—she was much more embarrassed than I was bothered and apologized the next shift we had together. I think she still feels badly about it!)
