My parents just returned my awesome dress and they have yet to give me a reason. The dress I bought, with my own money. That looks awesome on me. That I HAVE a shoulder-thingy for, so it's not inappropiate. Since they don't actually have a decent reason, they're just going with the old 'I told you so', to which I say: stfu. I don't freaking care.
Here are the reasons they came up with:
- It's strapless. Strapless dresses aren't allowed.
I HAVE AN EFFING SWEATER-THINGY TO GO OVER IT. THE SHOULDERS AREN'T SHOWING AT ALL.
- Mom told me not to buy it because it's strapless.
First of all, considering it doesn't count as strapless anymore cuz of the sweater thing, this argument is invalid. Secondly, I can buy whatever the hell I want. Thirdly, my parents seem to have this idea that if they don't call something a punishment it won't count as a punishment. Making me return the dress because I disobeyed them would count as a punishment. Duh. I can't even get over how stupid that is.
- My friends 'pressured' me into buying it.
Yes, they did strongly suggest it. But I'm not some mindless cow who just does whatever people tell her to do. I wouldn't have bought the dress if I didn't want to. Hell, I would never spend 30 bucks if I didn't really, really love what ever I was buying! So don't feed me that 'peer pressure' crap. I think I would know.
