Cheeky | Lace Crop Top and Maxi Skirt

Happy Monday lovelies!

The thing about Washington, DC is that you run into a lot of people who place their worth in their careers. In a typical DC bar, you'll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't ask what you do for a living within the first 10 minutes of a conversation. It's not always meant to be a judgmental question but sometimes you'll get the odd guy or gal who will tell you what they do with a condescending sneer. I encountered one such young man at a bar who told me he was a Senate staffer. He asked me what I did and I thought I'd have some fun with it.
"Oh, I work as a janitor at a college." I replied to his shocked face. "Yeah, I'm a janitor, even though I'm a lot smarter than most of the students there. Sometimes I'll see a complex math equation on a board, like half of an equation, and I'll just... figure it out."
In case you didn't get the reference, it's basically the plot of the film Good Will Hunting and I don't actually work as a janitor nor do I work in a university setting. Luckily, he did get the reference and laughed while admitting he may have come off a bit douche-y. Maybe that's the key to dealing with self-important people - cheeky little comments that will get you a laugh. 

How do you deal with condescending people?

  8. I love the crop top with the maxi! It's a great combination that I don't typically think of at this time of year.

    Oh, and I guess Toronto is a lot like DC. One of the first questions people ever ask when you meet them is what you do for a living...
