Unsolicited Advice from a Pharmacy Tech

I went to the pharmacy to purchase my "Shut Up Shot" today and was waited on by a new clerk, probably the new pharmacy tech.  I had applied for the pharmacy tech position but was not even interviewed.  The day I stopped in and talked to the pharmacist about the position my jaw dropped.  Why did your jaw drop, Amy?  (Jaw dropping is a term used in the English language to express shock or disbelief. )  The pharmacist was wearing a silk or satin camisole.   My shock registered with the pharmacist so that could be part of the reason that she was not interested in hiring me. I was shocked to see someone in a respectable profession dressed in her underwear. Today, the woman who was hired had her make up on just right.  When she gave me my receipt she said "here is a ten per cent off coupon, you could use it."  I had gone to the store, bare, (without any makeup.) The clerk's (pharmacy tech) tone was telling me that I need to wear makeup.
Women are bonders by nature and look for approval from society and each other in their behaviors.  There is a psychological mood of pressure for a woman to color her hair if grey, (or just color it regardless if grey) to wear make-up, and to follow fashion trends.  There are silly mental laws such as "Don't wear white before Memorial day".  I like to cover my head, but not many women do, as it reminds the of cancer patients. (I surmise).
I wish I was strong enough to forgo makeup all the time.  I wear it sometimes, but I think the female face is calm and beautiful without makeup.  We women are pressured by society to define ourselves by our looks.  We must be  pretty objects to behold.  What we think does not matter.  If we are angry and object to such influences, we must be medicated with a "Shut up Shot".
Sadly, I put up with the attitude of the clerk, and actually listened to her and put on my make-up.  This is probably an effect of the shot.
