133 - People who are afraid of using white things

How about you just be more careful when you're eating so you don't put a stain on your white hoodie? Or how about you avoid going out in the rain if you're afraid your white T-shirt will get wet and become transparent? Or how about you don't drive into the mud after you purchase this white car?

Jeez, how much stress do you want to give yourself?

It's almost like being afraid of owning anything black, because black laptops, stereos and televisions might accumulate very visible dust, or because a black SUV might get rained on by wonderfully white bird faeces.

When I saw the title of this post I thought you meant people were actually scared to use white things because they had a fear of the colour itself. Let's forget about how it's not actually a colour for a second.
It's good to know that you haven't actually come across any of these people. Or at least, not enough to have blogged about it yet.
I wear white, quite happily C:

I thought the same thing as Toivoa ja Elämän ..... and then I read the rest of your post ....

Hand up in the air (not being shy in the least) ..... NO white shirts with spaghetti sauce …… nope,nope,nope!!!
But other than that, I wear white :O)

I thought this was a fear of things white people like. Because being white, I figure a lot of what I like is probably illegal in some countries.

I don't wear white because it makes me look like a corpse.

And my car is blue because it's my favorite color.

I have plenty of black things (tv, stereo) but I don't wear black (the corpse thing).

I never wear white on the plane :)

Haha... I don't have much white for this exact reason. I was so sick and tired of bleaching my shirts so they stay that pristine white which they never do after the first wear and wash. Bring on the colours I say.

I'm not afraid to 'experiment' with things, including what I wear... just trying to have fun. It's more the people around me that are annoyance and make some comments. But, who gives a white or any other colour s*it about what they think.
