Well , That Certainly Clears It All Up .
I work with the public.
I work with the public every day of the standard workweek.
I do my very best to keep a relaxed , professional posture and set to my features.
I do not grin from ear to ear.
I do not set my jaw in the Joker like rictus like manner.
I keep a pleasant, well modulated tone to my voice.
I am old enough to use the following words : " Please, thank you , you are welcome , sir and ma'm ."
I may eye contact and maintain eye contact .
And I have just realized and or discovered that I suffer from " Bitch Face.
Bitch face .
Actually, on further research, it is actually called " Resting Bitch Face "
It's s term..really..check it out .
According to the Urban dictionary , it is the expression that makes one appear as to be a bitch.
Well , allrighty then .
I make eye contact with all persons that I need to . I pay attention and actively listen .
I do not however grin from ear to ear like a puppy with a new rawhide chew toy.
At least once a day of not more , a random co-worker will ask..." Are you okay...mad....feeling okay ? "
I answer that I am fine unless there is something that I am preoccupied with such as the kitty's or a family illness. I prefer to keep my work life and my "real " life separate.
This is the way that I am.
This is the way that I have always been.
This is the way that I shall always be .
I am not sick, angry , mad, pissed off, twitterpated, miffed , verklempt , worked up, frazzled, berserk , anxious , angst ridden , terrified , in a lather , beside myself or in a temper.
I can however get there pretty damn quick if I have to spend more than a certain amount of time explaining the above to stupid people.
You will know it if I am pissed .
Hint # 1 : My eyes change color.
Hint # 2 : I get really , REALLY quiet.
Solution: Get the fuck out of Dodge, get out of my face , and keep going.
I know the difference between those who genuinely love me and want to know what is going on and the rest of the Twatasarrissuses that merely want to get a rise out of me .
There isn't a thing wrong with having Bitch Face..at least we look like we have some concept of manners and professionalism .
