I'll start off by saying that I work at a grocery store collecting shopping carts from the parking lot during my whole shift.

One day, my mother was driving through the parking lot while I was working, and she stopped near me and asked if I was angry about something, cuz I had a look of anger in my face.

I was actually in a decent mood, but my face was relaxed, not smiling or frowning.

Anybody else been told you look angry when your face is relaxed? Plus I've read that Aspies can have unexpressioned looks on their faces often.

all the time...
worse, being told to calm down when Im relaxed.
Slow down when I am slow.
Think when I have thought things out.
Happy when sad.
Sad when happy.
Hyper when athletic.
Dangerous when safe.
Insecure when solid.
Miserable when I am fine.
Fine when I am miserable.

on on on on.
Sometimes, I think gawd this is the twilight zone.

When I see a relaxed face, I assume the person has troubles on their mind. I am usually right although sometimes I am way off.

I mean come on, am I supposed to smile CONSTANTLY???

I've never seen one person constantly smile. It just seems unnatural.

I was out last night in a bar and one of my best mates was laughing at me because I looked so angry. "Cheer up! You always look so pissed off when you're thinking, it's kinda cute..." he told me. I just laughed and tried to pull the face he said I'd been pulling but couldn't do it when I tried!!

I guess I'm fortunate in this regard. When my face is relaxed, I'm told I look innocent.

I saw a person who seemed to have their jaw wired this way. It was really creepy.

I once showed someone a picture of me where I, imho, looked neutral, and he thought I looked angsty. Neutral

I can't count the times people have asked me, "What's wrong?" or "Why are you upset?" when I was feeling totally fine.

i constantly get that at work...when i'm deep in thought apparently i look either upset or pissed off...i've been told both. again, what do people expect? that you go around with a perma-grin pasted on your face? if i'm sitting in my office doing paper work, i don't think too much about the expression i'm wearing, but people will see me and ask who pissed me off or what i'm so angry about...(hey...maybe i'm pissed off because you're asking me why i'm pissed off when i'm not? yeah, maybe that's why...duh.)

i've been told this for as long as i can remember...i guess i'm just not a naturally smiley person. Wink

I'm told I look angry all the time when my face is just relaxed. It pisses me off that all these people who are supposed to be so much better at reading faces actually have no clue what "relaxed" is.

People have mentioned a couple of times that I have an intense look of concentration on my face. Usually I'm deep in thought though and barely care about the work.
