Having a face like mine — someone who looks too young for her age — has some disadvantages:
- People don’t take you seriously. They think you’re too young and do not know one fckin bit of what’s happening in the world, or what’s supposed to happen, or how things are fckin done. It’s like telling you in the face to “SHUT THE HELL UP BECAUSE YOU’RE A CHILD, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TALK TO ME.”
- People tend to mock you in every way they can. You ask a fckin simple question, and what do they answer? “I don’t understand you” or they will simply put their tongues out and make it difficult for you to extract a fckin simple response from them.
- People think they deserve your utmost respect, while they believe that they don’t have to respect you. They use their years of experience to argue with you, to tell you that you suck, that they know what kind of bullsht you’re pulling off. YOU’RE FCKIN ANCIENT, for crying out loud. Don’t they think that a lot of things have changed already? Don’t they see that? And these affected the way we do things today. Seriously.
Maybe it’s the way I dress. Maybe because I have soft features. Maybe because I’m small, tiny, miniscule.
Thing is, it’s not helping at all. My 6-ft-under self-esteem has just dipped in the deep blue sea where I can no longer salvage it. Thank you very much. The only perk I can get from this stupid-looking face is to make pa-cute to the MMDA Officer everytime I get pulled up to the curb due to a traffic violation.
Can I just curl up in my bed and not see anyone… forever?
