So once again today, while minding my own business and not doing anything particular, someone asked me if I was okay, apparently because I looked gloomy. I might have been bored, but that was it. I'm quite sure they meant well, but I find such approaches infuriating, especially when someone tells me to smile. Etiquette does not permit me to tell these persons that I will smile when I gun them down. I have been in tears in public without anyone saying a damn thing. Where are these people when I really am upset and might be glad that even a stranger noticed? I think these so-called nice people don't want to look at naked pain, that's what I think.
