Toddler Is Miserable On The Happy Train

Every woman I know hates it when someone tells them to “smile.” It’s patronizing, it’s irritating, it’s invasive, and in my case, it overlooks the fact that my normal face apparently just looks angry.

Anyway, here’s a toddler who was put in the same position, but the toddler version of it, and she isn’t having it. Her parents or some other guardian placed her on the happy train, but she’s not fucking happy. My hat’s off to her for not caving to the pressure of smiling.

    It is invasive to have someone suggest that you change your facial expression! When a condemning man tells me to smile (not a tender well-intentioned man), I tell him that I was at the doctor’s office and I just received some horrible news- then he appears ashamed. It is so satisfying!
