I don't think it was a complement... - October 15th 2014, 01:55 AM

I just thought I'd share this since I found it mildly amusing.

Today I was waiting for my friend by my locker, minding my own business, when this lady ( teacher or administrator probably) stops, points at me, and says "my daughter wants to dress just like you" in a rather... Unfriendly tone. I was wearing all black, a floor length skirt and a long sleeved sweater with a pair of boots and fairly minimal makeup (gray eyeliner and red lipstick)

Has anyone else had this happen? I think its a little strange, since she works in a high school, a place where kids are experimenting and finding themselves.

I have never had or seen that happen. I think it was extremely rude and uncalled for. You are exactly right- people are finding who they are while in high school. She may not agree with the way her daughter wants to dress, so she might have gotten a little upset seeing someone dressing in the same way. She shouldn't have said anything though.
It's different for everyone, but often times older generations have a certain way of looking at things. However, this in no way means you or the person's daughter should change your style or sense of who you are. People might not agree with everything that I do or stand for, but I will continue to do what I think is right. I think the same goes for this- yes, some people might have different views on style, but as long as the person is following and expressing who they are, while feeling comfortable in what they're wearing, I'd say to continue to do what they're doing.
I hope she isn't too harsh with her daughter.

I find it sad. My mom was the same way a year ago, but now she has gotten used to it and often compliments my outfit choices. Its just rude for her to say something like that when we have never even spoken. Like, my art teacher saying something like that, yeah I'd be a little hurt, but we've had many a good chat and I would get over it (actually my art teacher often mentions how much she likes my choices)

I don't like rude people. Like, I'm not being rude to you so get over it. I ain't your kid.

Seems like a really rude thing for a Teacher to say.

Haha, what a b. I would have said "oh, haha thanks. my grandma dresses just like you, too!" in a genuine sounding tone.
