I read one earlier about a lab tech (female). Her boyfriend, who has been unemployed due to CV, moved in with her. He doesn't do anything around the house (which would make life easier if he at least did the dishes he soiled) and dares to make snide comments about her appearance because she's not worn makeup in months. Tells her it is unprofessional to go without makeup. Hello, when he was working, did he wear it? No. Makeup is not a requirement.

She says she's lessened the wear is because she is exhausted and has to don PPE all day. What is the point of wearing makeup if you are going to smear and sweat it off. Almost like going to the gym with a full face of makeup, why bother? Anyway, she finally confronted him about it, telling him it is her GD face and he needs to stop telling her to wear makeup all the time. I don't disagree. I've hardly worn any since March, and before that I was pretty minimalist. He needs to focus less on her makeup habits and maybe more on his own stuff or doing his share around the house instead of making her feel like shit. I find an argument over something like makeup pretty upsetting. I can only imagine how much worse and petty he'll get about things like how she dresses, or her weight, or who she hangs out with.
