This made me laugh this morning, I get told to cheer up all the time.  I'm not angry... This is just my face!

When I hear someone (usually a guy who thinks he's suave) tell a female to "Cheer up" or "Smile", I have to resist the urge to perform Bitchy Smacking Hand on them.

Some of those faces are priceless...and all too familiar to me. I think every one of my exes was BRF sufferer.

I hate when people tell me to smile. I could be lost in deep thought...or I could actually be asleep with my eyes open due to sure boredom.

I actually as told I would never be hired at another expo here in town because my bitchy resting face was mistaken for "attitude". Funny thing is, the entire time I was laughing and having fun with the other models, but the one time someone saw me not smiling I was dubbed as a bitch.

This!  Hehehe

And when I'm concentrating, I tend to frown, and furrow my brows.  People think I'm bitchy.  I mean, I AM bitchy, but I don't need a face to tell anyone that.

I've been told many times by friends and coworkers that I've got a scowl on my face. It tends to be my default look, regardless of how well my day is going. I developed it as a shield after I got spit on by a pretty neighbor when I arrived back at my off-base apartment while I was in my fatigues. That was during the Vietnam years and people in uniform were not popular.

Up until that moment, I'd been crushing on her big-time. I gave up the apartment and moved on-base soon after that.

The apartment complex's managers (husband and wife) refused to open the door to me if I was in my fatigues when I came to pay the rent.

Just Wow on all points.

I will be practicing my 'Bitchy- Resting Face' this Monday at Ultrasound Studios.

...and for three hours, I certainly won't be acting.

Replace bitchy with evil.
No manipulative pseudo-strategist can pull wool or bullshit over my eyes.

That neighbor, (male or female) was a bitch.

Thank you for your service!

My resting facial expression makes me look like I'm about to kill and eat someone.   Always.

The look is not complete unless you have 'imaginary beard scratch'

i love that video. it's me to a T. i overcompensate by using too many exclamation points in client emails and on my website so when they meet me, they think i'm really bubbly and stuff.

that was SO funny. I have a naturally pouty face and SO many people growing up thought I was sad or upset at something. My boyfriend got a kick out of it too because he apparently, according to one of his friends, has an "asshole face" AND he has this really sarcastic voice, so even if he might actually be sincere a lot of people will get offended/taken aback/confused. I think this was really well done smile
