…Wear Your Shirt Inside Out!

Or frontside back!

Don’t laugh. This really happens! And whether you admit or not, you might have probably experienced this yourself once upon a rushed day. Ha! Gotcha!

Well, fine, congratulations to you if you haven’t had this (fun) experience yet. Your mind’s probably not as messed up as mine. But, mind you, this doesn’t happen to me THAT often, which means you probably won’t catch me in a shirt with its logo hanging out 40% of the time. Boo!

Wait, did I say 40%? Oops! You did not just read that.

Crazy as it sounds, wearing a shirt inside out is pretty much normal when you’re undecided with what you’d like to wear for the day and at the same time, you’re rushing because you’re only 30 minutes away from being late (and you still need to catch the bus five blocks away). You hurriedly grab a nice-looking shirt, wear it, and decide against it. You take it off, wear something else, and then decide that the first shirt looked so much better on you.

Crap, why can’t I make up my mind in one shot?

You grab the first shirt, and without noticing that you haven’t turned it back to its “normal look” (that is not¬†inside out), you just put it over your head, pull it down, grab your keys, and rush towards the door. You’re lucky if you get to notice the fact that you have worn your shirt inside out as you pass by the mirror on your way out – you still have time to do a remedy. But if you did not notice it? Well, good luck!

Don’t expect strangers you meet on the street or on the bus to greet you with their normal straight faces (or smiles) though. Instead, be prepared to be greeted with raising eyebrows and questioning looks that somehow say:

What on earth? Did you just get out of bed and throw that shirt on yourself without checking in the mirror to see if you look decent enough to exit your house? Damnit! WHO ARE YOU?

Ooh, harsh! Well, at least they don’t say their thoughts out loud – whew! You can pretend to ignore them despite the fact that you know how embarrassing it is to be right there at that moment wearing a shirt that’s inside out. Everybody’s staring at you!

Whoops! What a shame!

Well, it’s not as if you can just take off your shirt right there and then and wear it the right way. That’s even more shameful! Someone might even catch you on tape! Yikes!

However, what’s even worse is if you don’t know that you have worn your shirt inside out (which is almost always the case)! Imagine yourself getting out of your house, walking in large strides to the nearest bus stop, climbing the bus while panting, and wondering why everyone’s gaze seems to stop and follow you as you find a spot to stand on as the bus heads towards your destination. Well, I guess you might be too tired to notice all the raised eyebrows back there, and you’re probably feeling all too lucky that you got to where you need to be on time. Yay for you!

Well, not until your friend comes up to you and burst out laughing.

Why are you laughing? What’s so funny? You’re weird!

Is he? Or, are you?

Looks like you’re about to find out.

I’m weird? You’re the one wearing your shirt inside out, and I’m weird? Okay…

Oh! Oops! Just flash a smile and rush to the washroom. You don’t want more of your friends to see how you dressed today. Not that it matters though because I’m pretty sure your friend back there is about to send off a tweet or a Facebook status saying that you wore your shirt inside out today as you change.

But that’s life: we learn from shame.

What will you do if you suddenly realized that you are wearing your shirt inside out while on a subway? How will you hide your unfortunate event? Share your thoughts in the comments section!

…Accept/Reject Your Mom’s Friend Request on Facebook!

Ohhh… momma dear wouldn’t like to be rejected, especially when she’s planning on expanding her social networks in order to get more girls’ night out and when she’s getting the hang of being your ‘hip’ mother. As her kid, you are supposed to be supportive of her joining the famous social networking site by welcoming her with an ‘accept’ response to her friend request. You are supposed to be her first friend on Facebook no matter how weird that sounds.

So, rejecting her friend request? Doesn’t sound like such a good idea as she might be brokenhearted that her own son/daughter won’t even be her friend. She might even go around and tell her friends and your relatives on how you hurt her on Facebook and how you were ashamed of her. Looks like you’re not gonna be getting good impressions from your own family for a while now. Talk about family grudge and a shameful face to show in the next family reunion.

Whoops! Looks like you shouldn’t have rejected her friend request in the first place.

Although, yes, it should be awkward for you (and your mom) to be seeing each other’s statuses every now and then when you add her as your ‘friend’. Even more so if she leaves a comment on your post or actually ‘like’ it. Good thing there’s no ‘unlike’ button (aside from unliking the ‘like’) around yet. And you know what else is awkward? When your mom and your friends comment on one another’s photos and statuses. Next thing you know, your mom’s invited to your best friend’s party, and she’s dancing next to you and she tells you, “Hey, I like your friends! They’re really cool! Maybe I should hang out with them more!”. Alright, what the hell is going on? What is going on is that your mom is now part of your social circle because of Facebook. You guys now have 300 mutual friends. Looks like your childhood tantrum stories and embarrassing moments are about to make the headlines. Talk about shame!

“Oh mother! You shouldn’t have told that story; that was supposed to be a family secret!”

Whoops! Looks like you shouldn’t have added her in the first place, huh?

Not that you can remove her as a friend now or write a status that says ‘I wish I didn’t add my mom on Facebook’ because that’s just gonna break her heart. You wouldn’t want that to happen either, would you?

Accept or reject her friend request – either way, you’re gonna get your piece of shame. Good thing my mom’s not on Facebook or anywhere near any social networking site, so I don’t have to deal with such a hard decision whether to add her or not. As for those who have mommy friend requests, looks like all I’ve got to say is whatever you decide, good luck and oops, you did not just accept or reject your mom’s friend request on Facebook! Some shameful stories are on the way, so brace yourself!

But that’s life: we learn from shame. (Lesson: make yourself unsearchable once you know your mom’s (or dad) planning to join Facebook.)

What if your mom is on Facebook – will you accept or reject her friend request? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
