I think that if life were a movie, I would play the role of the villain. Apparently, I always have a pissed off look on my face, even when I'm happy. Wait, I wouldn't be the villain because chicks always want to fuck the villains. Ever since I can remember, people, sometimes even random people, have always told me to "smile." I think that I keep a neutral expression on my face most of the time, but apparently other people are expecting a big fucking cheerleader smile because people always think I'm pissed off. After getting to know me, a lot of people have said "dude, I thought you were some arrogant fuck" or "you seemed like an elitist bastard." All this because I don't smile? And I would even think that this would work in my favor... isn't being arrogant a high status value? Aren't chicks supposed to want to fuck high status men? Shouldn't the fact that I give off these vibes should say "this guy is so high status that he doesn't even want to talk to anyone in here... holy shit I want to fuck him?!" Apparently not. And on that note, I always assumed that if I could make myself good-looking enough (relating back to my thread about my old mindset), chicks would be drawn to me in spite of the my arrogance because, omg, he's so hot. So yesterday I was at Long John Silvers (awesome restaurant), and I went inside to order, and as I'm waiting, the 17 year old girl working there is like "We have your order, but one of your Alaskan Flounders is hard so we have to cook you another one... can you wait exactly 3 and a half minutes?" I tried to reply in a joking manner and give her a hard time, jokingly, so I laughed, gave a big smile, and said "I suppose." Now I thought it was blatantly obvious that I was joking, but judging from her reaction I think she thought I was pissed. Maybe it was a language barrier (she was not a native English speaker). So she started defending herself and I was like "no, that's fine, I can wait" and smiled again. A smile is supposed to be friendly, right? Anyway, that kind of stuff happens all the time. I'll be walking somewhere, doing my own thing, and someone I don't even know will pass me and be like "smile." I'm like wtf? And I'm not even pissed off... I'm content and I have a neutral expression on my face. Is that not enough? It's not like I'm walking around scowling or anything. I hate people that walk around always in a good mood, those fucking bubbly cheerleaders, so I make effort to not be like them. If my "neutral" makes other people think I'm pissed off, I wonder if I was ever actually pissed off what would happen. btw, Alaskan Flounder at LJS is awesome, and it's one of the healthiest things on the menu.
