^^ I got fired for this. The manager claimed that I was violating dress code daily, so I switched from tennis shoes to office shoes(9-10 hour shifts at Macy’s in flipping heels), and they still complained. So I switched from my polo shirts to blouses, they still complained. Then my mom said something that stuck to me: “when you were interviewed, your hair was straight”. So I straightened my hair and then NOTHING. I wore tennis shoes and a polo shirt, and they said /nothing/ about me violating dress code. So I essentially said fuck that and never straightened it again, so they fired me for dress code violation.

Okay, Schmidt, we’ve been to 11 weddings in a row. That’s too many weddings. I can’t even get into the fridge anymore.
we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
…for someone else to point out that our college rape epidemic *might possibly* be influenced by the hardcore porn all these college guys watched, starting when they were age 12.
But no, they’re blaming like, underwear ads and girls who can’t hold their liquor.
The elephant in the room says Hello.
Happy 90th birthday, Betty Joan Perske, a.k.a Lauren Bacall (16.09.1924) -
“I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions.”
Happy 90th Birthday Lauren Bacall

"I think Betty’s enduring appeal flows not just from her skills, but from her inner strength of character. From the moment when I first spotted that lean and lanky seventeen-year-old in the theatre in New York, I’ve been looking, as millions around the world have, at a remarkable woman. After so many years, I can’t explain our friendship, nor would I try - for a tough broad, she blushes easily. Let me just say that I celebrate our time together, I have the joy of her friendship and we all have the joy of her talent - We’re all still looking, Betty.”
— Gregory Peck
"I’m not tough, and I never have been. I suppose over the years I’ve built up kind of a veneer to protect myself because I have functioned on my own for a long, long time, and I have never had a lot of flunkies preceding me to clear the way."
Happy Birthday, Lauren Bacall (16th September, 1924 - August 12th, 2014)
