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.
