This is why you don't assume or judge when you don't know the whole story. ydi.
I wouldn't really consider it an "honest mistake." The OP was being monumentally judgmental in his statements in the first place, even if I WASN'T in mourning I'd be really annoyed that the OP thought it would be okay to tell me to "lighten up" and that I "look depressed all the time". It's really none of his business, so maybe next time he'll keep his opinions on someone else's fashion to himself.
If he didn't tell you it's not your fault for saying that... You shouldn't feel bad...
Yes, because telling people that they shouldn't wear what they want to wear because the OP thinks they look depressed all the time is very complimentary and a good thing to say. Not. He should keep opinions like that to himself, it's none of his business what his co-workers want to wear.
Wow you are an ass, next time get all your facts before you go telling people what to do, or shut up and let people dress how they want to dress.
OP thought that said coworker looked depressed because of the clothes they were wearing and tried to tell them to change their wardrobe, if OP had been just trying to cheer them up it would of been a FYL , in my opinion, but the fact they thought they should have to change their clothes because OP thinks they're 'depressing' makes it a YDI.
For real. It's frankly insulting that OP think's they have any say in their co-workers wardrobe... I'm one of those people who "wears black all the time" and people constantly tell me to "learn how to dress" but get this, I LOVE my clothes, so why the fuck do you care? Even if OP's co-worker hadn't experienced a death recently, OP is still an ass.
It's none of my business.. But get off her ass! She never said she was perfect in any way, shape, or form. And she does not put off an arrogance about it at all. Talk about the OP being judgmental... Shit! From what y'all are saying, you guys are the poster children for judgmental. Who died and made you God? Worry about yourselves! People make mistakes. And the only person that any of us need to worry about impressing is the man upstairs. (Or where ever your 'man' is).. Not a bunch of judgmental people on the FML website!!
#80 - You're displaying a lot of the attitude that you're so pissed off about. Take a step back, take a deep breath, and calm down before you respond to people. As ridiculous as it sounds, yes, people can get tone from words that are written on a page. That's one of a writer's strongest tools to manipulate a reader's emotional state without making the reader feel they are being manipulated. The way you say things, the way you punctuate, and the words you choose tell way more about you than what you are actually saying.
Even though it is the Internet, and none of us will ever meet eachother and this is just a virtual world, there is still a way to talk to people and a way not to. There is a thing called respect! And disrespect trolls behind respect at all times. These other commenters disrespected GoW_Chick pretty badly based on what they 'thought' she meant in words that were TYPED. It was judgmental and disrespectful and just wrong. We are still people and 99% of the people on this site wouldn't talk shit to someones face like that, so why say stupid, disrespectful shit like that on the Internet? Because you can? All I'm saying is that if you wouldn't say it to their face, then don't say it! And if you would say it to their face like that, then someone wasn't taught about respect when they were growing up...
Ydi for telling someone what to wear, who gives a fuck if someone wears a lot of black? It's their style, not yours. Worry about your own damn wardrobe.
