Back in my skirts in San Francisco
Oh, I've had cashiers notice my skirt, and even my shoes.skirted_in_SF wrote:I visited the farmer's market, four stores, a branch library and my regular nail salon yesterday while wearing a skirt. No comments at all on the skirt, two compliments from store cashiers on my nails. But then again, the cashiers working behind a counter probably can't see the skit.
I'm not sure I'd call that a "negative" reaction. Of course, I suppose context is everything. I get asked "is that a skirt?" all the time. In every discussion I've engaged with someone, it's always ending on very polite notes.Hemitom wrote:well for the most part havent gotten any negative ones except this one gut maybe in his late 20's early 30's stopped and did a double take looking to see what i was wearing. he turned around and said is that a skirt?? i replied yes it was. he asked why are you wearing a skirt?? i replied because i can and I feel comfortable wearing it. he was wearing long baggie (basketball type shorts). i asked him why you are wearing those shorts?? he said the same thing...he feel comfortable wearing them. i guess that was enough to put him in his place...
To me, negative reactions are the evil eyes you get from across the room. So far I've had very few people give me a bad reaction. Usually it's just them being obnoxious. When they do, other bystanders typically stare at THEM because they're the ones making an ass of themselves.
We all have the tendency to make simple things difficult, but the spirit that abides within us achieves its own ends by making all difficult things simple.
