Don't you hate it when lost in your own thoughts in public and some guy says to you to "Smile!"
It sure annys me.
Oh heck yes! I get told to - cheer up it might never happen, or smile, or somehting equally stupid quite a lot. I guess my default face must be a sad one. The next time someone says it to me, I might just tell them something terrible has happened to me to see if that shuts them up..
Yes I really hate when people tell me to smile. It feels like they assume just because I am not smiling means I am not happy.
It is especially infuriating when the persons happy state is substance induced.
Oh god yes that is so frustrating and usually when you have a really good idea for something..then you toally foget what you were thinking about lol
YES! We can't have a smile on our face all day long, everywhere we go. Maybe we are having a bad day, or not a bad day but don't feel like smiling.
That happens to me so much! It's as if any serious face at all is mistaken as depression. Maybe some people aren't as afraid to think in depth about things as others.
profesionaly, i have a fake smile that i wear for a great portion of the day,.... if you catch me off the clock and tell me to smile,... i might tell you where to stick the smile!
i like the idea of a default face,... lol!
Annoying? It is beyond annoying. People see others and make presumptions about the person, their personality, their disposition, their day. If they want to speak, just say "hi" that typically will be enough to get your attention. And in most cases, get a reply of "hi" back!
Not only could you be caught up in your own thoughts, and not really concerned about the expression on your face, but you might not care that a total stranger wants to see something else on your face.
Try not to focus on a stranger making demands on you to display a happy face!
Yeah I agree because there are days when you just don't feel like smiling. I remember one day when this guy said smile it might never happen, well it did happen, My father had just died. I really felt like telling him the truth but that would only make him feel bad, so I smiled and kept walking. And so I make it a concious effort never to say that to anyone becasue they too might just be having the worst day of their life.
Yes......I so do . It is an intrusion into my private self.
No one has the authority to dicate to me, what I should feel or reflect.
Yes I do...but a very wise man told me once...smile, even when you don't feel like it. Try to take that sage advice but sometimes its difficult.
I don't see why you should hate it, as I would assume that the person most likely was just trying to be friendly.
i also hate it..................it make a person angry more
No because it snaps you out of your self absorption, reminds you to participate in society, and makes you realize the image you are projecting. Just be thankful someone actually noticed your frowning face instead of staring into their smart phones.

I really believe that writers live in the world of thoughts and because of these thoughts they are able to generate wonderful writing. What do you all think?

You all will think about this question and try to answer it but where do the thoughts come from? Be creative with your answer.

Is the concept of love in adversity lost. Do you just hate me for my beliefs?Just an idea. It seems that even our best minds throw out their opinions and then choose not to discuss them. Do not put something on social media and then refuse connection and the opportunity to share your love. Do...
