Yes. Tomorrow is Friday and the work day is already almost over (I leave at 6).
Why am I annoyed? Because a coworker just made this inane comment to me, “I was telling ____ I like your dress. It’d be perfect to turn into a nice big quilt.“
So I gave this look:
…and quickly walked away.
Inside I was thinking this:
But to remain professional, I did not say that out loud.
Note: the dress is a classic madras dress that I got almost 10 years ago from J.Crew. A classic size 6 that drapes really well and is perfect in our humid RVA weather.:

A “big quilt” hmm? Who says that to another woman!? Especially a younger woman who is not your friend and you don’t even have a working relationship with her. Plus, madras does not really make me think of quilts, either (although Google tells me they are big with children who shop at Pottery Barn). I don’t think my dress, if turned into a quilt, could cover you, let alone any size of a bed!
Here is how that snide, you-must-be-post-menopausal-and-decided-to-no-longer-care-about-your-professional-appearance-unlike-me comment made me feel.
