phantym_56: (ed - different class)

Unhelpful things people say in an attempt to be nice: 'Are you ok? You look really pale.'

Unhelpful because: makes me start wondering if I am ok, which makes me start to feel a little lightheaded when my initial response was 'Yes, I'm absolutely fine, feeling grand.'

(I am porcelain-doll pale at the best of times. God knows how white I must look today if colleagues feel the need to be concerned. I suspect it's a combination of now-burgundy hair in need of a wash and my black shirt making my skin look paler than normal.)

Nice but ultimately quite counter-productive.

Things that are always nice: The lad working in the corner shop who starts with "hello" then asks if you're having a nice day and who comes across as either a) on his first day there b) on drugs or c) genuinely happy

Have you all had a nice day, Livejournal?
