e perfect to wear when I come out in an apparently not so flattering outfit.
p.s. I am wearing the black & white HORIZONTAL striped shirt he got for me, as I read this! I never have worn it out in public. And it is sadly not the only horizontal striped shirt (& 1 dress - WTH?) that he has given me. So I really don't know what to make of any fashion advice he gives.....
ff they say. Sheesh! And, they have zero interest in taking accountability for the impression they make. Nope let's just sue somebody!
For sure, I've seen and heard examples of people with prickly personalities and atrocious appearances make assumptions about ageism being the <<<OBVIOUS>>> reason they don't get very far.
There's no way it could be:
that snarly expression on their face
that gigantic chip on their shoulder
that entitled, know-it-all attitude of "do you know who/what I am" at my level?
that condescending "back in my day" or "when I was your age" or "a young whipper-snapper like you probably doesn't remember when..." or with my maturity as a seasoned professional with 39 years of experience I can get this place in ship shape in no time" interview statements
that hideous perfume/cologne that chokes out all the oxygen from the room
that distracting nose hair, ear hair, chest hair poking out everywhere
that too tight, too short, too lowcut, too much camel toe, VPL, too many lumps/bumps, TMI outfit they've decided to wear
that stench of cigarette smoke, moth balls, bad breath or BO detected from 20 feet away
that months' worth of Dolly Parton make-up on thier mug and can full of aqua-net in their hair-do
that pair of eyeglasses they've worn since 1982 not because they've suddenly become a hipster
Thanks again for adding your examples! …
