    Oh I have one more, it’s my small-a$$ feet!   I wear size 4/4.5 shoes and I can NEVER find high-heeled pumps in my size.  It’s such a pain!  There are so many beautiful shoes out there, I am so jealous of my girl-friends who can walk into any shoe store and buy what they love right then and there.  Me, if I find something I like at a store/magazine, I have to then scour every nook & cranny on the internet just trying to find a pair in my size.

    Just the other day I scuffed a pair of my favorite silver heels and was really upset,  and my friend said “What’s the big deal?  Just go out and buy another pair” to which I say,”Do you know  how long/hard it was for me to find these?!  It’s impossible for me to go out and get another pair just like that!”   

    Man oh man, what I would give to have size 6/6.5 shoes!   ;P

    Teeth for me. I have uneven teeth on the bottom and I really hate it, but my family didn’t have money for braces when I was a child and my dental insurance now barely covers anything. People are usually polite enough not to say anything about it, but I can always tell when people notice.

    @mrsgrant:  People observing that I’m pale.

    “Wow, you’re white”

    It used to really get on my nerves. Especially since I don’t hardly wear makeup so sometimes people believe I’m sick.

    What bugs me about it is just how stupid the sentences usally are. “You are pale.”

    “And what would you like for me to do with that information?” I mean, seriously what a pointless observation.

    I love my skin color, though i worry about it on my legs sometimes. :/

    @DarthBetty:  I feel you my fellow annoyed-at-my-foot-size-sister!  ๐Ÿ™‚    

    Also, in my culture being really pasty white is considered very BEAUTIFUL.  It’s so funny, on bright sunny days my aunts will wear gloves, long-sleeved shirts, a hat, and carry UMBRELLAS wherever they walk!  (my mom is always yelling to stay in the shade and not get tanned – but I LOVE to sunbathe ๐Ÿ˜‰  )    So if you grew up in my culture, everyone would be very envious of your beautiful pale skin!  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mine is definitely my weight. I’m still far from overweight, but I am considerably heavier than my cheerleading days. I’ve made peace with the fact that that’s never going to be reasonable for me again (honestly it wasn’t then), but I still hate comments about my weight. Girls seem to think it’s okay to comment on you being thin like PP have said, but, for me, that’s still hard. That just makes me start thinking about my weight, which leads to thinking about how I’m not as small as I used to be or would like to still be. It would just be nice if people wouldn’t mention it at all. Even though they mean to compliment me on being ‘tiny’, weight is an extremely sensitive thing for me.

    I greatly despise when people question my intelligence. People have offered to “let me” cheat off them so often and I’m always like, “seriously, I’ll do fine on my own.” I typically end up doing better than the people who offer to “help me” anyway. Also, when I tell people what schools I’m trying to transfer to, they’re usually surprised- UGH. Just because I’m blonde and a woman does not make me unintelligent.

    @mrsgrant:  I, too, am petite, and hate when people refer to my height. I’m often met with assumptions that I’m weak or I’m treated like I’m younger than I am. I learned an awesome response. The next time someone says that to you, smile and say, “Diamonds don’t come the size of bricks.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @lanipapillon:  Argh, I’m sorry that is so frustrating for you. I get ticked when people point out what I eat, too. Mind yer own biz, people! People are so clueless. Hang in there.

    @ForeverBirds:  I hear ya on the BC weight. Same here. Keep after it, you can do it!

    Mine is my skin.  I’m a teacher and some of the young kids make comments like.. “You have red dots”, or the special needs boy, “germs on your face? “.  They are just making innocent observations, but UGH, I KNOW!  Lol.

    it bugs me, but I’ve gotten used to it (because I literaly get the same reaction everywhere…)

     

    I have 8 kids, people freak when I tell them, or think I’m lying….then ask HOW, WHY and then want to know ages, etc.

     

    I had a waitress once when it came up ask me what their names were because she didn’t believe me LOL

     

    And I had this rude guy once ask me if I knew *how that happens* and if I was going to have anymore. a**hat!

     

    I’ve gotten used to it now, (used to really upset me big time) and or I just dont even bring it up because msot people don’t even think I’m old enough to have one let alone 8 bio kids lol
