But there is one woman in this universe who claims she wants to be less attractive, because apparently it’s a rough being pretty.

33-year-old Laura Fernee blames her good looks for a host of problems in her life, including her unemployment. Fernee says she was forced to quit her job after being constantly harassed by male co-workers and dealing with female co-workers who were jealous of her beauty. Now, Fernee lives in an apartment paid for by her parents  and hasn’t held a job in two years. But she is also claiming it’s simply not her fault.

“I’m not lazy, and I’m no bimbo. The truth is my good looks have caused massive problems for me when it comes to employment, so I’ve made the decision that employment just isn’t for me at the moment,” Fernee says, according to the Daily Mail. “It’s not my fault … I can’t help the way I look.”

She says she endured constant harassment in regards to her face and body, while co-workers ignored her professional achievements. “Male colleagues were only interested in me for how I looked. I wanted them to recognize my achievements and my professionalism, but all they saw was my face and body," she says. “Even when I was in a laboratory in scrubs with no make-up, they still came on to me because of my natural attractiveness. There was nothing I could do to stop it.”

This is the most disgusting thing I have read all day! What a loser to think that she is too pretty to work. What a waste of space to the human race. I cant believe that there are people this shallow in life. I would be embarrassed to even admit that I knew you personally. YOU are like a disease that could banish off the earth and no one would realize it because you are "too pretty". YOU NEED A ****ING WAKE UP CALL LOSER! People around the world are suffering and you seriously consider this a disease?! YOU ARE A DISEASE! PATHETIC! Find something worth complaining about!

So many haters on this issue.  You need to get over yourselves and leave the poor lady alone.  Ladies  -- I am sure you are just hating because you are not as beautiful as she is and you wish you were as pretty as she is. 

 

And as for the so-called men, get over it.  You cannot put on enough makeup, stuff your bras with kleenex, wear high enough heels or put on a big enough wig to look as pretty as she does.

So when this happens. You go to ask her co-workers they would say "what is she talking about, she is stuck up" that what jealous people would say.
