I see I’m not the only one that likes to talk a little shit…

Your overrated / underrated bits were hysterical, yall were not playing on that overrated part lol.
I was waiting for someone to say Pokemon Go but that would have been too easy, right?

Something else I saw over the weekend and thought, overrated; holding the door for someone.
I hate it when people hold the door for you when you’re like 20 feet away so now you gotta hot step it so you don’t look like an asshole.
Just let it close man, just let it close.

 

You ever put something on just because but then forget you have it on and leave the house?

I did some major cleaning over the weekend and then put this dress on to run some errands, completely forgetting I have a left sock wrapped around my head.

It wasn’t until I felt the toe part hanging over my eye like a goddamn bang that I remembered it was still on but at that point it was like, fuck it.

The odds that someone saying something are like one out of ten and I’m ready to roll those dice.

  1. The worst thing to me about holding a door is the EXPECTATION of holding the door, and then that awkward gray area where you’re sort of damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Like, if I am opening the door and you are within, say, five strides of me, I hold the door because if I don’t it looks like I’m slamming it on you. On the other hand, if you’re far enough away from me that it becomes silly to hold the door because I’m standing there for 30 seconds or else you have to hot step it, then I don’t hold the door.

    But then, there’s the awkward gray area, where it’s just far enough that it puts pressure on the person to move faster, but just close enough so that if you don’t hold the door you risk looking like a jackass. What to do then?

    Moral of the story: All buildings everywhere must have either revolving doors or automatic sliding doors. Problem solved.

    1. So look like a jackass, who gives a shit?
      That feeling will last for about 14 seconds before both of you get on with your day. Everyone will be just fine, trust me.

      “Ugh! Can you believe this guy didn’t even hold the door for me!!?”
      “Really Stacey!!??” (because you know her names always Stacey)
      “I mean, riiiiiight!! Ugh! What a jackass!!”

      THE END.

  2. LOOOOOL …. #1: i do the door holding all the time, especially for the tenants in my building who are mostly old retired folks (what’s wrong with a little exercise ?) worry not, i also do the “slow down, it’s ok, i’m in no rush” hand motion … #2 : try putting on white or mint-colored pasty toothpaste on your pimples to dry them out (this was years ago) and then going to the supermarket and wondering why people are so “smiley” that day … this is what happens when your head is shaved and you obviously bear no mind to mirrors and your hair style and getting used to not checking what your face looks lineal the time … 🙂 xo

  3. Absolutely love that you went out with a sock on your head and just styled it out 😀 I never would have noticed if you hadn’t said though.
    Similar to the door holding is when drivers allow pedestrians to cross and you have to do that stupid politely-hurrying jig across the street. Now if I’m walking and not in a hurry and see one of those situations forming I stop like 2m short of the kerb and fully turn my whole body 180 around and pretend I’m looking at something back the way I came, just to make sure the driver knows I have no intention of crossing in front of them. Or if I’m actually in a rush I just charge on ahead without waiting for them to wave me across, one of these days I’m going to get knocked down.

    1. Hahah!! Oh god, I think crossing the street while cars are waiting on you is the WORSTTTT!!
      Sooo funny!! I do something similar too! Ill like pretend I’m on the phone or looking for my uber…something!! Anything to get them moving again and not waiting on me!

      And thank you! I wouldn’t have said anything if the toe part wasn’t noticeable already, haha!

  4. Oh my god, I thought I was the only one who hates when people hold the door for me! Like you have to do that awkward half run half walking thing and it’s so awkward and uncomfortable. But oooo gurl! This look is incredible! I’m loving the orange and blue combo with the sock hahaha, you rock it as usual. 🙂

  5. Oh man, i’m guilty of holding the door. I just feel like such a dick once I see someone hustle behind me… i have to.

    Also I think the sock looks good, you rocked it

    1. Hahah, thank you!
      I try and hold the door too but I go through a little bit of math before I do it.
      Like I quickly try and measure the amount of steps they are behind me vs. how fast they’re walking and calculate how long I think I’ll have to hold the door for and factor that against how much time I have to spare.

      Is that wrong? It probably is.

  6. Great dress. I’m just working on a dress that is virtually the same colour! Yup, what I hate worse than holding the door open when you’re a mile away, are the AHs that don’t say thank you when I do hold the door open. I just yell a very sarcastic “you’re welcome!” after them.

    1. Hahaha! I can so see you doing that and I am not ashamed to admit I do that too.
      The smartass in me can’t help it.
      Or if someone bumps into me and doesn’t say anything, I loudly call out behind them, “excuuuuuuse youuuuuuu!”

  7. Okay now, wait till you are a mum then you may be doing this a lot. I drove all the way to the shop with a stupid scarf on the other day and the kids were like, mum did you leave this on deliberately? No I didn’t 🙂
    You look sweet boo and theat behind; on point.
    Have a fab week.
    X

    1. Hahahah!! Awwe!!
      But you are really a fab mom there, Mojisola, so don’t even worry about it!
      Kids have a natural ability to make you check yourself when you otherwise think you’re good to go, haha!!

    1. Awww, well if you go to this Instagram, I think it’s called SolarFlairOptics or something like that, I’m sure you can reach out to him and work something out.

      We gotta get you a pair babe because I have 3 sets and I don’t want you feeling jelly, heehee!!

  8. Hahaha! I’ve done that before! Only mine was an ugly old scarf!lol! And it’s the worst when NO ONE says anything to you and just looks at you.
    Anyhow, you are killing it in this dress! And those sandals are so good, I need them in my life and of course they’re sold out!! Annoying.

    xo, Jackie

    1. Hahahaha!!!
      See I’m like if no one said anything to me then I clearly must have rocked the shit out of it and then I get all happy with myself.
      The worst to me is when someone DOES say something to you and then looks at you like WTF were YOU thinking!!?
      THAT, to me, is the ultimate UGH!!

      Sorry boo boo about the shoes, they’re like 4 seasons ago 😦

  9. LOL love this post. Your dress is so pretty on you. Love your look even the sock !!!
    I am with you with the door thing… I do hold the door open though for the elderly….
    What I don’t get, is when it is the pedestrians right of way to walk, and I stop my car, why the heck do they feel the need to charge across looking like an idiot or just about doing themselves an injury by trying to hurry up? I just wish they would chill, take a breath and walk normally! The other day one woman literally tripped up on her own shoe trying to rush across…I just shook my head, I was right behind her….

    1. Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!
      This is hysterical, LOLOL!!

      I totally agree though. If I have the walk sign, I take my sweet ol time.
      If I’m crossing the street outside of a cross walk and/or across a busy street – I hightail it because I know what that feels like on the drivers end, heehee!!

  10. Looking sassy as fuck and where’s my sock to wrap my head, shhheeeeeee…..Ps I raise your open door situation to the rude MFs who you open the door for and then they sail stone faced past you. I want to drag them back and bang the door in their faces…erm… ( :

Go on, get it out..
