Dear girl who called me fat,
I may be fat now, but I can change. You will always be mean.
You are the bane of my existence.
Sincerely, A very nervous student driver.
Dear Shop With A Sign That Said "Senior Discounts",
Please know how much I appreciated it when you were giving elder people AND college seniors 50% off.
Sincerely, Seniors In That Shop For Dinner.
Please kindly take your ideas of "plus size" and shove them up your ass sideways.
Sincerely, Every man on the planet who has had to reassure his perfectly healthy and proportioned woman she’s
I don't want to be 80 sitting in a rocking chair on a porch left to my thoughts to wonder what could have been for hours on end. No matter how many times you say I'm not good enough, I'm going to try.
Sincerely, Your daughter who won't ever give up.
Dear Whole Foods Employee,
I just asked if I could get that in a plastic bag, not if I had permission to conduct a satanic ritual in your store. Please save that glare for when you really need it.
Sincerely, Guy who uses shoping bags as garbage bags to save money.
Dear Bratty Teenagers,
No, your parents are not trying to ruin your life by asking you be home by 10 o'clock.. they just want you safe.
Sincerely, Not an idiot
I know that I am a quiet and shy person. Stop telling me such.
Sincerely, Introverted and comfortable in that.
I was going to submit this as a comment, but I figured it'd be best posted here, for anonyminity. It's really sad how some many people don't realize that they have value in life. I know that had internalized that I was worthless for a long time, but after some life events forced me to realize that I couldn't find my self-worth in others (what I had always done) I turned to finding worth my purpose and who I am. It's been liberating. While I haven't severed all of the old thought processess where I let others determine my worth, I now see through that veil. I actually impact people. No matter how small that impact is, it's one action towards a better or worse world. You impact people too. Be you because who else can you be?
Please stop being extremely rude to the people who handle your food
Sincerely, enjoy your meal
Dear Al Sharpton,
Please shut up. You're not improving race relations; you're making them worse.
Sincerely, a black teen sick of race baiting
I am a college graduate. I'm currently working two dead-end jobs to try and cover student loans, car payment, insurance, rent and utilities. I'm trying my best to make $50 of food last until my next paycheck, and it's still not working. At this rate, I am still $200 short every month, and I don't know how to meet that gap. All the while, my one job has managers that are afraid of me for some reason (and continue to ride my ass because of it) and cuts my hours, and the other one is very clique-y, making me the outsider. I'm living in a house with people whose primary goals in life seem to be high and drunk as often as possible, and thus despise me since I'm just trying to make ends meet (and can't really be drunk and high all the time). To top it all off, I am 2,000 miles from my closest source of help, meaning if anything goes wrong, I am pretty much on my own. Please don't act like I don't know how tough life can be, simply because I'm white and male.
Sincerely, I'm not looking for pity or empathy. But please don't think I have never suffered.
Dear "I support gay rights why can't you?",
Oh I don't know, maybe because people all believe different things? Forcing your belief on those who disagree with it is just as bad as those trying to force their belief on you.
Sincerely, sick of double standards.
When my friends are over, and you need me to do your make up for a play. Please just walk in, their faces were priceless when you asked.
Sincerely, a theater kid who grew up doing her father's make up.
Dear girl at my school,
Yes. I read. I write. I'm quiet. I'm awkward. Do you really think I need you to tell me that I'm a nerd? Thanks, but I already knew, and I'm proud of who I am.
Sincerely, I'm getting glasses next year, too!
