What do you 'get' from people a lot?

Asked by Blackberry (31897points) May 17th, 2010

You know….there’s usually one thing people tell you about yourself almost on a daily basis (especially if you meet new people). It could be some small observation like “Did you know you say ‘like’ a lot?” etc.

What is the thing that people tell you a lot? Does it annoy you or do you not care?

When i was in 4th grade kids in my grade said i looked like Nat Wolff (a kid from a horrible nick show called the naked brothers band, and i do not expect anyone to know what i am talking about)

They say I’m “caring”. Little do they know.

I’m very soft spoken. I let it bother me when I was younger. As I’ve gotten older, I embrace it.

I’m often told that I have a nice voice.

When I was about 7 or 8 other kids would frequently ask me if I was a boy or girl.

Yesterday I Skyped with someone from Fluther for the first time and they told me that I sound way different than they imagined. I get told this often from people who have seen what I look like before we’ve had the chance to speak. I think from my pictures, people think my voice will sound softer or more high-pitched when in reality it’s a little deeper.
It doesn’t bother me when people say this, but they immedately make sure to tell me it’s deep, not manly, which I think is funny. Good way to catch themselves and be sure they won’t offend me. XD

I get told I’m too quiet a lot by the people around here. My close friends and family would disagree though and say I never shut up. :)

That I am a royal pain in the butt and “why do you keep deleting your account?”

Blackberry's avatar

Interesting. I get the voice thing a lot as well, not the pitch though, but that it sounds strange for the way I look. I am told I’m too ‘proper’ sounding, I don’t care, although I do agree I sound funny sometimes.

Do you think we prematurely judge people in our heads before we meet or hear them? Well, not judge, but try to put a character to them beforehand? I know I do sometimes, I try not to, but it just happens subconsciously sparingly at times.

Berserker's avatar

bob_'s avatar

Ah. Gotcha. You said “huge” and “front” and my mind just wandered off..

Berserker's avatar

Oh I get it now…haha. XD

bob_'s avatar

I was gonna be all “pics or it never happened”, but now I’m cool, thanks XD

Berserker's avatar

Yeah, for the record I have big front teeth and I’m totally flat as a wall. Well not that bad, but I still wouldn’t brag about it. >_>


bob_'s avatar

I’m sure you’re just being modest.

Reverse psychology FTW!

Berserker's avatar

If I am it’s not intentional. Or something. Also, I like pillows. ’‘huggles one’’

bob_'s avatar

Pillows are awesome.

Berserker's avatar

Truth. It’s in your post.

deni's avatar

who doesnt love boobs!!!!!!!!!!!

bob_'s avatar

Boobs are even more awesome ‘cause they can double as pillows.

deni's avatar

oh. i thought you were actually already talking about boobs. why use a pillow when you can use boobs

Berserker's avatar

No I meant actual pillows. They’re all soft and snuggly. :D

bob_'s avatar

Wait, so now you’re talking about boobs?

Berserker's avatar

No, pillows. You know, rectangular puffy things you sleep on. :D

bob_'s avatar

Rectangular? Those are some weird boo.. erm, nevermind.

Silhouette's avatar

I get coached on how to cure my shyness. Funny how many people confuse quiet with shy.

zenele's avatar

Boobs are better than pillows because pillows can’t be boobs, but boobs can also be pillows. Just saying.
