What Would You Do?

So earlier this week I had to go to the pharmacy to pick up some meds. In doing so I noticed something pretty odd.

The woman that helped me has on a really bright pink lip stick.

And it was smeared on her teeth.

I ultimately didn't say anything to her on the premise that she wouldn't want some guy telling her about her makeup.

When I get back to the car I run the situation by my wife who tells that no as a guy it really wasn't my place to say something (she wasn't hostile about it mind you).

And it got me wondering about why would it be out of place.

Would she take it as harassment?

Maybe she would be offended that a guy commented on her makeup?

Perhaps she wouldn't care?

Hell there is a chance she would thank me for telling her?

Is it possible that I could have said something about it and not caused trouble? Yes there is and thinking back on it more than likely she would have thanked me and gone to clean it up.

But at the same time I didn't feel comfortable rolling the dice on how telling her would go.

These are pretty tense times where a simple misunderstanding can turn into a viral event. Next thing i know my picture is on Buzzfeed on a article titled, "If You're A Guy That Sees A Woman With Smeared Lipstick NEVER Do This!".

The norms and standards and codes of conduct are really awkward these days and talking to people feels like a walking a minefield.

So ladies that wear lipstick reading this.

Would you want a guy to tell you that your lipstick is smeared?

How would you respond to a guy telling you that your lipstick is smeared?

Have a good night folks!
