That time of year again

So I'm very, very faired skinned with nearly white hair. I'm like that all year, but the moment summer rolls around random people suddenly feel the need to come up to me and make comments about my appearance. I just dont get it.. Tell me is that not a bit rude?! I find it very uncomfortable being suddenly looked at like some kind of specimen just because the sun is out. And quite frankly, it's just so awkward. What the hell am I supposed to say to some stranger telling me how quickly I must get burnt. "Um... yeah... thanks for telling me I didn't already know that smartass..." seriously just keep your thoughts to yourself.

You're telling me that in a city as cold and unfriendly as Vancouver random people approach you and make comments on your appearance?
Not a chance.

I’m very pale as well and people always feel the need to make a comment about it, especially in the summer. Saying “oh you could use some sun” etc. I’m used to it and not really sensitive to it anymore but it is definitely rude to make comments to about a persons appearance. Some people lack common sense and basic manners.

I’m a redhead. If one more person tells me that if all my freckles joined together I’d have a great tan, I think I might just slap them.

has always tanned well, I've envied people with beautiful light transparent skin. Did you ever consider they were complimenting you?!?
