  • Yes if someone looks trashy then I just assume their house is trashy and dirty.

  • Guilty. Just this weekend there was a lady and her husband in front of me at the grocery store and they both looked greasy and dirty, their clothes were dirty and their hair was greasy. Then I remember all the posts on here and I tried not to judge even though my first thought was they don't care about themselves!

  • Sure,sometimes you can't help but notice,especially when they have kids that look nasty too.Like when kids smell.Imagine how long it would take for a kid to smell like body odor!

  • Yes I do it.

    I get grossed out seeing how some people take themselves out in public.

  • Yeah, we all make snap judgements based on looks. I try to get past that though and actually get to know the person. Maybe the greasy looking couple in the store were doing yard work or renos all day and just needed to run to the store for some essentials for supper. Maybe the stinky kids just came from a practice or game of their sport. So while I do make a judgement based on how a person looks, I try not to let that first impression be the only impression of that person that I get.
