Day 196--- "Oh, That Looks Great On You..."


I fully appreciate all those of you who made it past the picture to read the last post... As shocking as it may seem there was not a whole lot of sweat-panted fatty's to choose from on the Internet. Sure I could have gone to any Denny's or Wal-Mart and taken at least 30 pictures of my own, but I was strapped for time... Today I have decided to post about a group of people that constantly, indirectly ruin my nights out... I speak of the girls who tell their friends that they look good in things that they don't...

You may not find that this is a huge problem, but on the contrary it is usually precisely that. As a general rule, most people start out their lives as semi-self conscious beings. Most girls will start out naturally covering things that should be covered, and typically don't start to hang loose until they get some coaching from their friends and peers... Questions such as "do I look OK in this?" or "does this make me look fat?" will no doubt be asked along the way... If answered honestly many of the ungodly clothing decisions could be thwarted Freshman year. However, most girls will lie to their friends, either to save feelings or out of pure convenience... Therefore these girls, who should not be wearing certain things get it into their minds that they still look good in skin tight, low cut, or high cut clothes even while pushing 250 Lbs... Ladies and gentlemen, this is a tragedy. I compare them to the people on the first few stages of American Idol who everyone makes fun of, no one wants to tell their friends or family that they suck at singing so they lie to them their whole lives, only to see them humiliated on national TV... This is what happens weekly at bars all across the world, people taking a nose-dive into social suicide with some of the outfits that they choose, all because no one wanted to be honest and say "you look like a cow, cover up a bit more," or "I'm lactose intolerant, lets cover up that cottage cheese". Honesty should be the number one policy...

I'm sure some of you are probably saying that guys are just as at fault as females. This is incorrect. Anyone who has ever met a female knows that guys are never allowed to be honest with them when it comes to clothing choices, we are given a very strict list of things we are allowed to say, and they are all positive... They frankly don't even really want our opinion, they just want us to say what they want to hear, which is obviously always going to be good... "No that does not make your butt look big, yes it makes your boobs look huge, no I cant tell that you have not shaved your legs for a week," and so on... I'm sure if you look in the rule to life there will be something very clearly outlining the males responsibility to a females/ girlfriends outfit somewhere in chapter one... Unless of course the guy friend is gay, then he is held to the same rules as any female friend, that's what he wants anyways.

Since this has been going on for years it is not going to be an easy thing to reverse, but I say that no time is better than the present to try... Preferably sometime before summer comes around and there are a plethora of mid-drifts that should be covered and are not, legs that should still be in long pants, and boobs that should be better supported... Just sayin...

Great post. Okay not one of your funnier ones, but still perhaps my favourite.

Because I learned something. And you taught us a way to cure this problem. And I don't have to do anything, because it's not my fault.

Ladies, fix this for me please.

I think you nailed it with the American Idol analogy. But do you think people (catty women) are possibly ruling out the competition by not saying anything about the hairy coin-slot that is MORE than prominent in those low rise cut off jeans?

I swear that's my former sister-in-law. MY EYES!

And for the record, she is one of those headstrong women who didn't bother to ask if she looked good, she KNEW IT! And would have slit my throat had I considered not agreeing with her.

So many lines to choose from here...

"Looks like Shamu got caught in the tuna net again."

"Thing is, that's a size 8 black cashmere sweater she's wearing."

"Net result, not good."

"Fat woman eaten by a hammock, next Geraldo."

"Okay, Dad, dressing in drag is one thing, but . . . "

"That outfit leaves nothing to the imagination except, of course, imagining yourself jumping in front of a speeding train."

There is this product called Spanx, it suxs in tummy fat, lol, and it's like a skin tight, comfortable body suit to wear under your clothes.

Hahaha hilarious. Though, for men - you don't have to say "that looks disgusting, tuck the spare tire in", you could just say "that looks ok, but what about THIS" and recommend something else you know she owns that doesn't look so bad? And then rant about how amazing she looks in latter outfit.
Done.
