ROTD: I'ma Barbie girl, in a Barbie world, life in plastic, it's fantastic!

Sorry, it's been a while and unfortunately this post ain't about roses and rainbows. Just needed to get something off my chest.

Been down sick with viral infection - AGAIN! And didn't take any MC and went on working since there was too many work to do. My brain has been exhausted and I've on a short memory status. Been forgetting things like an old lady.

There's a lady (late thirties) who's quite well respected in my workplace that bothers me a little. Nothing all too serious but it seems that she often make subtle hints to me and everyone how she doesn't approve of me or the way I look or behave. I don't expect to go anywhere and win a bloody popularity contest here. All I want to do is get along with everyone, get our job done and go home.

The first few months of working in my new job; she started hinting to me how I should not act fake and how she and her husband (she married early) are comfortable with each other and how not fake they are.

Problem is, I am who I am. Like I said, I'm not here to win a popularity contest, there's no reason for me or anyone for that matter (in my opinion) to act fake. This is me. I talk in a girlish voice, I grin and tell stupid jokes, I nod my head respectfully and smile even when I'm scolded etc.

Elisa did mention that people who doesn't know me will cleverly 'assume' that I act fake. People who's with me for a while, knows that that is just me. Thinking that time will prove her wrong eventually, I let this comment slip.

How long can a fake person keep up in a relationship? I'm curious. If I were that horribly fake and manage to keep it up for 13 months and see my bf everyday, I deserve an Oscar!!

The face. In this case, MY face. People take one look at me and also assumes that they know me their entire lifetime and how they don't need to even talk to me to know me. They assume that I do not know any hardship, is unable to handle anything important, can't work, can't hold a job for 6 months, a flower pot. Will wilt under sun, will never eat in hawker centres and only eats expensive food stuff and all, can't hold secrets, gossipy. It's incredible how long the list goes.

I admit I'm not perfect. I'm far from it. I have a list of faults probably that long too but it's none of the above. I had live by myself in a strange place with no fan, no lights, no furniture eating nothing by instant noodles for dinner every night for 2 months. I have been thru shit and more, I can hold a job for 6 months and more. I like umbrellas because I have pigmentation problem, I dislike gossip, I'm a fantastic secret holder. I eat anywhere and almost anything.

But anyway, as of late, she's hinting to me how she disapproves of the way I look. In her words, she's okay with girls dressing sexy but doesn't approve of things like colouring the hair. How she like au natural. Good for her. Also if my hair was under a scarf, I wouldn't bother to do anything to it too.

I don't wear sexy but I consistently colour my hair, recently hair my eyebrows embroidered, wear make up (mascara and occasionally falsies) and in other words - Look fake.

She never says anything like that to my other colleague that colours their hair in light browns and stuffs. Weird..

Ta daaaa, move over Barbie! I'm here to stay!

Now all I need is double eyelids, a boob job, some lip fillers, blond hair, blue contacts and I'm all set. I don't know about you guys, but I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of 550cc for my boobies...

Now to get my Ken, my pink convertible, my pink palace and the RM10k needed for my boob job...

Sponsors anyone?

The woman had a problem with you colouring your hair? I think its just a case of jealousy as you look great! I remember when I was in uni and all I wore was eyeliner and tinted lipbalm, some girls from my home country would insult me mercilessly for wearing makeup! It's hypocritical as a year later they all had coloured hair and were wearing makeup. The best thing to do is carry on as you are and ignore them!

shuaddict said...

That woman is seriously being passive-aggressive. She's just giving you backhanded insults but not quite full on insults so she can justify that she's not a bad person.

I don't want to pull out the "she's jealous" card but from the sound of it that's definitely it.

Keep your chin up and ignore her comments as best as you can. Like you said the people that love you know who you really are .. the rest, well it's their loss for making such judgments based on nothing but appearances.

old ladies are just jealous. i've had overweight american women treat me terribly and pick on me when i dress sexier for nights out. no worries! i had a big struggle with looking fake too - circle lenses, light hair. no one at my university looks like this. well no one at this university is me. it took me 2 years nearly to accept this transition but i like being special my own way. old people stare all the time. let them :)

TJ Lubrano said...

Aaaaarghh! Some people! Really Ash, I wish I could stare at her for doing such stupid things to you. But really glad that you stand above this and continue to be you!

A friend of mine did tell me as well, that if people don't know me and see me walking they quickly judge me as a girl who knows she's pretty and has lots of dudes. Let me just laugh at that...Ha ha ha -_-.
I can't understand at times why people are so judgmental and stereotypical. Too bad you can't do a thing about it, other than leave them floating on their judgmental cloud.

Awww hope you're feeling better soon!! Working while you're sick is a pain in the *toot*

Big XOXOXO!!

Ok like even plan looking people can be super fake in personality - who cares if my face look fake?
Anyway hope things work out for you

You forgot mentioning about reading under the freaking dim light in the toilet.

What is wrong with her? you need no fake freaking boobies to be you. This type is best ignored, no point wasting time or even bother to sweeeeaaatttt over her. You a lot of meaningful yet better things to do, hammer her freaking retard head. She doesn't know a shit about you. I feel sorry for her coz she has been freaking blanketed and blind all this time. Phoooiiii.... YOU DON"T NEED HER !

*hugs & kisses* while rubbing your back hope you do not mind what she say or had said. IGNORE her.

hope mdm prissy has read this entry. what's worse than being a 'fake' is trying to impose one's will on others. live and let live.:)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Haha...I love your sense of humor! Definitely a better way to look at things. :)

Sounds like she is just insecure with herself. :(

Shop N' Chomp said...

Haha...well I'm glad I made you feel normal. Or is it that we're both weird? LOL. Just kidding! ;D

Didn't you just get your eye surgery not too long ago? Hopefully your night vision issue is temporary. :)

Vanessa said...

Ugh I hate annoying people like that! But you tell her! LOL. She's probably just jealous of you! :)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Hee hee...you're so funny and sweet! XD

Dolce♥Bunny said...

WTF? what is her problem?
These kind of ppl are just plain jealous and mindless and stupid. Seriousely, does she not respect individuality!? These kind of ppl can't travel, cuz they live in this small tiny box of their mind.

But i really love your attitude of doing it MORE FAKE!! lol, but please don't go for plastic surgery... =.=
