Default my filter is not working

I am saying things out loud at work that I shouldn't. Oh lord.

This morning coworker #1 says to cw #2, "You look very nice in black."

CW #2 says, "It's my signature color."

Then they both look at me. I say, "You do look nice in black. I don't have a signature color; I try to get here with no food on me."

CW#1 laughs; she's known me a year. CW#2 just started Monday and she looks at me like I am a deranged lunatic. And then I realize she has perfect hair and must be one of those ladies who owns 47 makeup brushes because she looks airbrushed and amazing. My hair is big & poofy and in a headband. I have on no makeup at all, none. I even forgot earrings today. I bet she thinks I'm homeless.

I have filter issues too. And unfortunately for me it usual happens in staff meetings. It's hard when you have to call in as you do not see the verbal clues to shut the F up.

CW2 is a lunatic if she didn't think that was funny.

Someone saying that they had a signature color and then turning to me for a compliment would've gotten much worse. Signature color. Pfft.

LOL... person says "black's my signature colour" and turns to me for a compliment:

Response 1) "Well, then I guess I am your signature accessory! Compliments included!"

Response 2) "Black is your signature colour? That's too bad - I really like bright colours, they make the day so much nicer and black is so dreary. But you look great!"

Response 3) "Signature what? You want my signature on something? Oh never mind, carry on."

My filter went on vacation when I was pregnant. My husband often says it's impossible to embarrass him, I proved him wrong. I was constantly making comments about people as though they couldn't hear me. I really don't know what came over me. Things would just pop out of my mouth before I had the chance to think about it. But on the flip side, I had had some damn good comebacks for anyone who tried to touch or comment on my body.

Filter? What filter?

I have to filter what I say when working 98% of the time, and can never truly voice my own opinion, so I tend to not filter otherwise. I think it's a fair trade.

Oh this was the mild one. It got much worse. You'd think I'd just shut up. But no. I cannot help myself some days. Ugh.

Later, a different coworker, one who sometimes suffers from the same problem, introduced me as, "this is J. She is being inappropriate today so try not to listen too closely." I laughed so hard. So did she. The new coworker, not so much. I told inappropriate girl #2 that we should go to lunch. So we did. It was such a relief!!!

If I typed up one of the things I said outloud, I'd be banned here. I hope tomorrow will be less stupid.

My filter never works.

I just got back from 9 days without working, 5 of them spent on a music cruise. I'm still feeling the ground move as if I were on a ship.


My filter is now spewing things it has tried to filter in the past. I suppose that's working in a way...
