Today, one of my coworkers asked if I hated my life and was depressed because of how I look most of the time. This is just my facial expression. FML
I agree, your life sucks 42 179
You deserved it 5 000

Some people always get this . They either always think your mad or upset .

A smile a day keeps the doctor away! But not the pedophiles.... Oh god not the pedophiles...


You should ask them the same thing and when they say "what?" You should smack them and then say "see, like right now you look really sad. What's that all about?"

The first thing I thought of when I read this FML was squidward

49 op should become a goofy goober. Only thing she should do is avoid blowing bubbles

That's what happens when you look like (or are) Kendrick Perkins...

It's not OP's fault. It's called resting bitchy face. Serious problem.

I have both a friend and someone I know at work who always look angry with their idle faces. When you actually talk to them their faces are lively and full of smiles, but just walking around you'd assume they were grumps.

I have a serious face naturally and people always think im mad. Then they talk to me and im really friendly, it gets annoying. I can relate to op.

63- thank you! Reducing ignorance never deserves the thumbs down you've received.

Could you perhaps be the Queen of England on vacation in my WONDERFUL home state? She always looks grouchy. Always.

This is me. I look more sad/depressed apparently. I see no reason to smile if you're not doing anything. Wouldn't it look creepier if u see a guy walking with a huge smile on his face, every time he looks at someone?

YDI OP should have listened to his/her mom. Everyone knows if you make a face, it will stay that way!

3- That awkward moment when you realize you have no idea what "awkward" means.

I guess people took me seriously. Just like OP's coworkers took him too seriously :/

Sorry op, some people are just insensitive and don't think before they talk

That happens to me often because my neutral face looks sad/upset maybe Op's coworker was genuinely concerned

Oh my gosh, I get this all the time. Sometimes, I just lie and say that I'm tired or something to save myself the embarrassment of saying, "it's just my face".

That's when you say "I ordered a gun yesterday. Should I put you on the 'Do Not Kill List'?"

Everybody always tells me their first impression of me was that I was a bitch and hated them because I always gave then dirty faces, but it's just my face at rest:(

Maybe you should try to smile more often, it usually brightens up your face. If you already do, I'm not sure what to suggest... Although that was a bit extreme on their part.

Maybe it's because OP doesn't smile when she thinks. Same thing happens to me: I'll be going somewhere with my mom, looking out the window, and she'll just be like, "Why are you so upset?" But in actuality it isn't that I'm upset, I just have a blank face when I think hard. Smile with me, OP :)

Forcing a smile can be just as bad. Makes you feel self-conscious and unable to relax and the smile often appears faked. OP just has Bitchy Resting Face. Not much you can do about that. It's becoming more of a well known thing though so hopefully in the future more people will understand and fewer people will stop telling us sufferers to cheer up!

Just tell them you're the new cool this day in age, who knows maybe it'll work.

I knew someone like that. Poor thing looked angry and constipated and like she was about to burst in to a fit of rage all at once. Someone had made a similar comment to her that was made to you OP and she gave him a spook one time to show off her 'look and facial expressions' and then lived happily ever after. Embrace your uniqueness. It made her happy so I'm hoping it will work on you too.

I think OP had more of a Kristen Stewart look to him/her. Just a guess though.

What kind of people ask these questions..

The kind that don't want to say "I would of talked to them if I had known"
