Stupid Opinions

It's been a while. A very long while at that. And I have a great reason for my 4 and a half month hiatus from the blogosphere. And that will be explained in due time in the form of another post that will be shared detailing the current updates in my life (in love, health, work and education). 

Meanwhile I'd like to get your attention back to the topic at hand today- stupid opinions. We hear them everywhere. At home, on the way to work, on the way home, on the streets, on the phone, on social media (the breeding ground for stupid opinions) and even in the papers! The fact of the matter is, stupid opinions are everywhere. And they normally come from the mouths of stupid people. People without brains. People with brains lacking the thinking capacity to utilize this brain. People who just say what they want to say without looking at the facts. *Ahem* S-t-u-p-i-d P-e-o-p-l-e.

Now that I'm working in a professional environment, it became apparent to me that this might be the second breeding ground for stupid opinions. I cannot begin to fathom why this could be. I mean, this is at the end of the day a "professional" environment right? People should be immune to Stupid Opinionitis (A disease that warrants the sick person the inability to give out smart opinions) right? WRONG. It turns out the office place CAN be a  breeding ground for these unfeeling parasites. 

In fact this entire post comes courtesy of the office situation that happened today. Contrary to popular belief, the office is a happy, vibrant place with a somewhat cheerful environment. Today it was a bevy of hypocrisy. So there I was enjoying my day with a cheerful demeanor, brightening the lives of everyone around me when suddenly I'm called aside by my team leader. Oh? But what could it be about? He sat me down.

 "J, What do you think of your outfit today," he asked. I looked blankly at him and asked him to clarify. He clarified. Then it dawned on me that the outfit that I wore today (simple white camisole top, high-waisted dotted skirt and red belt) insulted/made jealous/intimidated someone enough for them to approach someone else to tell me (cowards) this. It seems this particular outfit that I have worn today, which I have worn many times previously in the same environment, has violated a certain somebody's eyes!

Bitch Von Stupidface as she will be known from now on was so disturbed by my normally worn outfit that she felt like it was her civil duty to point out my "barely there" (according to her) outfit. The point here is that I don't have any problem with people sharing their opinion with or about me. It bothers me greatly that this was done discreetly, behind my back, through an intermediary of whom it didn't concern. I mean, what the fuck? Was she scared of me? Did she think I would eat her? Come on, we're both humans and adults, so chill the fuck out.

Anyway the point of this post is to vent out my rage and frustration at all this happening to me on this day. I really hope that things do work out between me and her because from now on my demeanor will be cold and icy whenever I talk to her. For real. Oh and by the way Bitch Von Stupidface, this is specifically for you.
