A look of disapproval given sideways
Imagine that look your mom gives you when you’re caught doing something you’re not supposed to. That’s what we call Side-eye. It’s a sideways glance that speaks volumes, often expressing disapproval or skepticism.
This expression is something many moms have mastered. With just a simple look, they can convey their disappointment. They don’t need to say a single word. Their Side-eye does all the talking.
It’s not just mothers, though. We all use Side-eye at times. It’s a non-verbal way of showing our annoyance or disapproval. And yes, sometimes that one look can feel as deadly as a dagger.
So, next time you see someone giving you a sidelong glance, you’ll know what it means. They’re giving you the Side-eye.

I know, right? I mean, who wears that to a formal event? 🙄
