Sometimes we need to not say some things. Now often I say the stuff I should not say, but have gotten better over the years. Yesterday at work I was sorely tempted to turn off my self editor, but I did not.
A younger lady (who is okay looking, but not very good or drop dead gorgeous or anything, also not a troll) was wearing a brown top and a brown pair of pants. The brown was a dull flat brown and the clothes were not form fitting (nothing to really fit too - see things we should not say). She was standing in front of a copy machine in the mail room and no one else was around. I don't know her that well other then to say hi to her. The thought that ran through my mind and was cracking me up was "Hi Mary, you look like sh*t." Now this just was killing me not to say it, but since she does not know me I thought better of it. I have a friend whose self-editor is apparently broken and he is always saying the wrong thing. I told this to two women I work with and they agreed it was funny and that I shouldn't have said it. I mean really how mean is it to hear someone you barely know say you look like sh*t, but still it is funny.
