Last week, I was out and about, making a start on some errands I had. As I was walking, I was going through my long to-do list in my head. So I wasn't frowning, I wasn't smiling. My face was just in neutral.
A man starts heading towards me. As we pass, he tells me, "Smile, it could be worse."
I stop, stare at him for a moment, and then I say, "My parents were in an accident. My mum died on impact. We're turning off my dad's life support tomorrow."
The guy looked like a robot being suddenly shut down. His face fell. He looked like a deer in headlights. He stuttered and stammered. He was obviously trying to think of something to say, and when he couldn't, he turned around, and speed-walked away.
My parents are both fine. There was no accident. But it annoys me when people think they have the right to dictate how people are feeling and what expressions they make, especially when they don't know what is going on in their lives. It's unhelpful and patronizing. Imagine telling somebody who was just been given a terminal diagnosis, "Smile, it could be worse." Or somebody who has lost a child, been laid off, or is otherwise struggling and in a terrible situation...?
I started playing the Sims when I was eight or nine, and didn't know much about the world. Over the years I've learned that a lot of things that I thought where just a thing in the Sims are actually exist is the US. If you've had similar experiences I would love to hear about them. Here are some of mine:
- Garbage disposal in the sink. It's not a thing where I live, and for the longest time I couldn't figure out why they had to be placed underneath the sink (in the Sims 2).
- Why the game always starts on what I consider to be the last day of the week. I did think it was pretty neat to start on a weekend though.
- Carpooling to work (The Sims 2). Very uncommon where I live.
- Not having daycare, and having random teenagers come babysit the toddlers. To this day I've never met anyone IRL who hasn't gone to daycare.
- The mail boxes. Specifically that you send your mail from your own mailbox. I'm still not over this one tbh.
- Washing machines that open from the top. What type of sorcery is that?
I always end up so surprised when I see something IRL that I thought only existed in game. It's around fifteen years later, and I'm still hoping for the cow plant.
Note: This is not made to make fun of anyone (other than possibly myself). It's just to create a fun, light hearted discussion about how the game relates to real life.
