Everybody's talking at me...

I have that face. That kind of face that makes people feel I am 'approachable'. Maybe it's mumsy? Maybe it sniffs of I teach children so have to talk a lot. Whatever it is, it makes strangers want to talk to me. All the bloody time. 

Could be a shop assistant. Could be like over the weekend the sole person in a spa who talked to me throughout the only two hours I had to relax sans sprogs. Defo people on public transport. Especially how do I put it politely...mad people. I haven't learnt the "don't talk to me face". I have the "talk to me and tell me anything you want" face. Once a pupil put her hand up mid lesson about Easter to tell me about her Nan's hysterectomy. Lovely. 

People also weirdly enjoy telling me secrets despite me being atrocious in keeping them. I'm dreadful! By the time you're driving home in your car from a coffee with me, I've already text your news to my non caring hub. 


However. I brought a 'Tea makes me twerk' mug from Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago. In London. The check out girl just asked how I was in passing. And I found myself telling her all about my night out the night before and how the mug was for me and I was a teacher and couldn't take it to school and so on and so on. She looked bored to death. 

So maybe I haven't got that face. Maybe it's me that actively finds out the manager of a Boots and discusses the finer merits of ballet v tap.

So I apologise in advance. I feel my writing may be telling you all the random gumph that goes on in my mind. But here's a top tip. Don't tell me any secrets. Especially not about your Nan's hysterectomy. I may well put it in a blog.

  1. hahahaha I love this post! I know exactly what you mean - blogging is definitely my way getting all the gumph out of my brain! Noted not to tell you any secrets - though I am dreadful with keeping secrets too - have got in trouble with people a few times for letting things slip when I shouldn't! Wish people wouldn't tell me things they don't want other people to know! Fab post #allaboutyou xx

  2. This post is brilliant. I also have one of those faces and used to be a teacher too so am spotting a trend. However, I could also talk a glass eye to sleep so am probably equally as guilty of this as the next person...

  6. Don't tell anyone but I love a good twerk.
    You need to work on your "pissed off resting face" -- no one ever talks to me ;) I definitely do that thing where you talk to the cashier. I think it's because I'm uncomfortable but once I start I physically can't stop…argh!

    1. Defo always bore cashiers to death. Especially if they simply ask if I am having a nice day. They must think I'm a bore! xxx

  7. Very entertaining! I'm not someone who can easily talk to people so find myself feeling slightly jealous of you. :) #AllAboutYou

    1. Don't be jeal. I talk to random strangers who don't actually want to talk to me! That's not the way to make friends and influence people! xxx
