I don’t get it!!!
I turn left, I turn right, I am constantly being stared at.. Why?
I say something, I do something, I am being judged.. Why?
When walking on the road, I notice people stop, stare and then pass on some shushed comments as they walk along.. Well, I wouldn’t be bothered but there is a lot of pointing while they comment and that irks me to no end..
Infact, there have been many instances when I just flip a finger and walk away, but then I wonder “do they understand the meaning of the finger?”
Few days ago when travelling by auto on the Kotturpuram bridge, there was a guy on a motorcycle right next to the auto.. He actually turned, looked at me, spotted the tattoo on my left forearm. Auto went ahead, but then a second later I noticed him pulling up besides the auto again to slow down and stare some more.. He noticed my stare and pulled away. I smiled and knew he would quietly swerve to the other side and appear there a minute later, which is exactly what he did.. He infact came to the right side, turned left and once again on seeing me spot him turned and sped away…
Seriously? What gives people the right to do these kind of things? Don’t they have any brains or don’t they care?
Not just this, I have had people stop stare, comment and then walk away slowly, continuing to stare… Is it cos am big? Is it cos am tall? Wtf.. Would they be ok if I was to stop and stare at them and pass comments? [Not that I would]…
Last weekend, we were at a mall waiting for friends.. While we waited, I was generally looking around to see if there were any familiar faces when I noticed a woman [ she was not a girl, must have been in her 30s and since she dint behave like a lady, I call her “woman”] staring at me, looking me up & down [ not in a nice way, but in a derogatory manner.. How do i know? cos she had that look on her face…].. I stared at her for a good 2 mins before she took her eyes away… Gosh! what on earth is wrong with people?
I don’t care what others think
I don’t give a damn about their sneers/comments/snide remarks
But don’t they have anything better to do?
