We’ve all heard of Resting Bitch Face — but spare a thought for those of us living with its lesser-known cousin, Resting Nice Face.
It’s actually more annoying than it sounds. I know this because my face constantly smiles; even if I’m having the worst day of my life, I’ll still break out in a sunny grin when another human comes my way. My face betrays me with amusing consequences.
Anyone with resting nice face will relate to these 15 struggles – or, shall I say, we’ll just grin and bear it.
1. Charity muggers adore you.
Those charity people who hang out in malls, harassing people to donate? Well, they’re coming straight at you and your open, kindly face. Say goodbye to the next 20 minutes… and that $20 note in your wallet. And your email address, mobile number and home address.
But hey, helping those less fortunate than yourself is truly something to grin about, right?
2. Tourists will always ask you for help.
Whether it’s taking their photo or giving them directions (despite the fact you’re often lost yourself). It’s because you look just so friendly and gentle, qualities potential muggers definitely don’t have.

3. In school, you were the teacher’s pet.
You were the kid chosen to deliver messages to other teachers or give a speech at assembly. It’s because your little face was just so cute and earnest.
4. You always end up helping the hired help.
People you’ve hired to help you, like tradespeople or gardeners, will somehow enlist you to help them. Enjoy raking up those leaves as you regret being so warm and welcoming.
5. You’ve actually dedicated time to practicing Resting Bitch Face in the mirror.
And you’ve failed. (Post continues after gallery.)
