party crasher.

Sometimes, when I'm talking to a co-worker about my current hair plan, or lack thereof, another co-worker decides to make their way into our conversation.  Uninvited.

This person informs me that I would look better if my hair were longer.

And blonde.

And I would be laughing, probably.  Because the idea of me with long blonde hair is pretty comical.  (No offense to the blondes out there.)  So, normally, I would laugh at that thought.  I would.  If I weren't so pissed off.

You see, it bothers me when people seem to be under the impression that I wake up every morning with the goal of attaining their specific approval.  I do not.  It bothers me when people seem to be under the impression that their idea of appealing is the universal idea of appealing.  It isn't.  It also bothers me when people assume that their idea of anything is a matter of interest to me at all.

Because sometimes it just isn't.

So, hey.  Bro.  Just because your wife has long blonde hair and spends roughly three hours in front of a mirror every morning? Doesn't mean that every woman in the world needs to have long blonde hair and spend three hours in front of a mirror every morning.

I can't help the fact that I'm brunette.  It just comes out of my head this way.  In similar fashion to the way words I don't care about seem to spew forth from your mouth.  I promise I dislike them a substantial amount more than you dislike my revolting, above-the-chin, brunette hair.

  2. Let's be honest. Long blonde hair on you would not look good because you would look very uncomfortable. Taking beauty advice from someone with that idea would be a mistake! Yet, we can't help but get mad at strangers or dummies when they suggest idiotic things. Because they're just so darn stupid.

  3. I think it is really rude when people just butt in and say stuff like that. One time at work my friend who has reallllllly long hair, but it looks awesome, had someone approach and tell her she should chop it off and donate it to cancer. It's like who the heck cares what she does with her hair!? And why should your opinion matter?

  4. Oh man preach. People have the idea that everything you do is for their personal benefit, or that we actually care about what their opinions about our bodies are. Never understood it.

    1. It really is weird. It would be one thing if I asked, "Hey, what do you think of my hair?" But I didn't! For a reason!

  5. Oh, my gosh. There are seriously some douche bags in this world. I love your hair. It is so Audrey circa Roman Holiday. Maybe you hate that description, but I love it. And it's sort of Amelie. Which I also love so much. Anyway, the point is, I hate whoever that guy is. And his wife and her blonde hair. They can both suck it.

    1. I love both of those descriptions, quite a lot. So, thank you. For the flattering descriptions of my hair and the sympathy rage. It's something I appreciate!

  6. Haha, the funniest thing is that she (he?) thought their opinion was important enough to butt into your conversation to tell you. Like your whole world was hinging on their opinion of your hair. For whatever it's worth, I think your hair is adorable and seems to suit you perfectly!

    Also, I have long blonde hair and never spend more than 5 minutes tops on it... for whatever that's worth :P

    1. Oh no! I definitely did not mean to say that all blondes are obnixiously high maintenance! All I meant was his wife is, and I think he expects every other woman in the world to be. I have nothing against blondes or even spending time getting ready haha it just isn't my personal thing. you don't seem high maintenance at all!

  7. No. Just no. Who does this guy think he is?

    Craig's Grandma loves to tell me how much better I look with long hair and when she tells me this, she looks at me like I'm a fat kid ridding a bike. Thanks, G-ma...
