Top Ten cases of vintage Resting Bitch Face

As I have mentioned before: herehere and here, I sometimes buy vintage knitting patterns for reasons other than wanting to make the featured garment. Some of the categories I also look for are: use of bonkers props, men smoking, odd backgrounds, scary children and the category that I want to share today - vintage Resting Bitch Face (RBF).

So, RBF is an unfortunate situation which occurs when someones ordinary face (at rest, not attempting an expression), is, well, bitchy looking. The person looks mean, angry, annoyed, irritated but that is not how they are feeling. It is just their face. Whilst RBF is a term that has only been used commonly in the last few years, this Top Ten shows that whilst the term may be newish, the look is pure vintage.

Enjoy!

Take a look at my book? Er, no.
Spare chair? Nope, can't see one.

Yep, the spit is still in her hair.
Me? Need customer service training?
Take me for a drink after? No way sunshine.
Just practising my death stare.
One little smile just for you? Creep.
Fashion modelling they said? I am so better than this.
I don't do cleaning.

This is my happy face.
