I was kindly nominated by TeenQueen for the Sisterhood tag, which is an amazing tag, opening minds on how to approach and react in specific real life situations. TeenQueen is a great blogger, who you should definitely check out. She blogs about her thoughts and aspects of her life in her posts, of which some raise mind opening questions like Does everyone deserve respect?
- You must have the same featured image as what I have; the font, size and colour of the title be your choice.
- Thank the blogger than nominated you and link this original post.
- Answer the following scenarios.
- Nominate a minimum of at least 3 bloggers.
- Give at least 5 scenarios of your own.
- Answer everything as best as you can.
- You’re out shopping with your friends when you [literally] bump into an old enemy from school. They start commenting about how you’ve glowed up and on your body. You start to feel uncomfortable. What would you do?
Firstly, trust me I have not glowed up so girl is lying. No but seriously, if I felt uncomfortable in this situation, I would tell them to mind their business because if somebody (especially someone who was my enemy) started commenting on my body, subjecting me to just my looks, then they can’t just walk away thinking it’s okay to do that.
- You’re at a train station and you see a homeless man begging for money on the floor. You give him £50. (Or $50 or €50 or whatever). Later, you see him in a corner whispering to another man and showing him the money, laughing. It is obvious he is a fake. Would you confront him, report him, or leave it?
I honestly had to think about this because I thought I wouldn’t care too much and after all, it’s the thought that counts, but that’s £50. That’s a lot of money. Not only that, they’re using the idea of the suffering of homeless people to gain money. There are people, who actually need that money, who can’t get it otherwise. So, I think I would confront the man. I’m not sure if I would report him just because that man’s probably going through stuff in his life like the rest of us so I don’t know if I would go to the extent of causing trouble in his life.
- You’re in a big shop and you suddenly see a woman dragging a small child behind her. The child is crying and looks nothing like the woman. Do you think the child is being kidnapped? If so, what would you do?
I know that mums have to drag out children sometimes, while they’re crying, because they’re being annoying or spoilt. 😂 But, to make sure, I’d probably tell security or anyone working at the shop and then run up the woman and pretend like she dropped someone to stall her and engage in conversation to make sure but make it look subtle in case she is the mum. Saying this, that’s what I would do with time to think since I am sitting here, writing and thinking about it. I guess on the spur of the moment, it kind of depends.
- You’re at school in a classroom with your friends and everyone is surrounding you because you’re the most popular person at school. A new kid walks in and they are extremely gorgeous. Everyone’s attention moves to that kid and they soon become the most popular. You are very jealous. What would you do?
What next level Utopian parallel universe are we living in where I’m the most popular person at school? 😂 If I was in this situation, for some crazy reason, I don’t think I’d care. Of course I’m saying that because I don’t really know how it would feel for all your ‘fans’ to run off to another popular person. I think if this did happen, your real friends would stay with you and it would distinguish the fake friends and the real ones. But if I was really jealous, I’d slap the new girl. Jk, that’s crazy!
I’d kill her.
Nah, just kidding, I’d probably just follow everyone and see what the big deal is about.
- At the cinema, you and your long term boyfriend/girlfriend are watching a movie. A man and woman come in during the middle of the film and block your view. Your boyfriend/girlfriend looks angry and pokes them on their shoulder. They turn around and your boyfriend/girlfriend starts calling them fat and telling them they should sit at the back so that their “overweight asses” wouldn’t block the way. The couple start swearing at your boyfriend/girlfriend. What do you do?
CUT. THAT. BOY. OUT. In every relationship, there’s always a point where your partner’s crazy comes leaking out from under the carpet. If the man and woman are being called “overweight asses” by my boyfriend, then it’s likely that he’d think that about me if I was overweight. If he’s confident enough to shout out rude insults like that, he’s probably got a shelf of other things he’s okay with saying out loud to people somewhere in his crusty walnut head.
Wow, that got me worked up.😅
- You’re on the top deck of the bus you take every day to get home. You can hear a group of older and bigger boys at the back commenting on a girl, your age, sitting nearby. You look over and realise she’s uncomfortable. What do you do?
- Say you work in retail and you’re at the till. A man approaches you and you serve him but he begins being rude and mumbling racist comments (just imagine you’re not white, if you are). What do you do? Tell him off, report him to your manager, or let him go without saying anything?
- Your significant other cheated on you and you found out, somehow. However, you also happened to cheat on them once. What are you going to do?
- At school or work, you find out, by another close friend of yours, that one of your supposed friends was talking behind your back. Do you take your friend’s word for it and confront them? Or ignore it and carry on spending time with that supposed friend?
- You know somebody, who is seen as peculiar. They sit by themselves all the time and show signs of depression. You hear a group of people, you don’t know well, making fun of them. What’s your move?
- You’re out with your parents and pass a gay couple. Your parents, who are lowkey strict and conservative, start to comment on them, negatively, and judge their sexuality. What do you do?
Be as real and honest as you can with your answers. I’m looking forward to reading them! 😀
