DAWN O’PORTER HONESTLY

“Anger doesn exist in vacuum”

M a STOP sign. The man in the other car beeped and swore, so my friend rolled down his window and said, “Pm so sorry, my wife is in labour.” At this point, a normal person would think, ‘Fair enough’ and get on with their day. Or they’d still be a bit annoyed if they genuinely thought my friend could have caused an accident, but similarly, they would just get on with their day. Not this guy. He shouted,

“I hope her and the baby die in labour.”

Yup.

My friend now can’t tell her birth story without mentioning this part of the experience. She was terrified and it made her worry (even more) about what was going to happen during labour, as if that random angry man had some kind of premonition.

Luckily, all went well and both she and her gorgeous baby girl are fine. But why should she have to deal with that to start off with?

The problem with other people’s anger is that it doesn’t start and end with them, but instead starts a chain reaction.

I should have been able to shake off being called a dumb bitch by that woman, but I couldn’t. As she sped away from me, my first thought was, ‘How dare she speak to me like that in front of my kid?’ and shortly after that I found myself screaming, “WATCH OUT FOR YOUR MOUTH, YOU DUMB BITCH.” A chain reaction of rage.

To be honest, though, I felt a lot better after that.

Skinnydip bags

Every dress needs a fried egg to go with it.

Kau London calfskin boots I call them

Snuggle Chic. I love the monochrome version.

Going paperless Anytime this is an option, take it.

Investment clothing I spend too much money on too much crap. My resolution: save up, buy quality.

DAWN’S DOS & DON TS

Spitting Everywhere I go, I see men do this on the street. It’s so gross, I can’t bear it.

Perfumed loo roll Just. No.

Boring voicemail messages “Heiio, this is ,

I can’t take the call.” Come on, be inventive.

Tissues up sleeves Yes, it’s snotty-nose season, but you are not a maths teacher from the ’80s. Stop it.(?
