Tell me what you really think

hair

If you have eyes, you may have noticed that, in early July, I changed my hairstyle and added some bangs. I’ve come to realize something since then: People have strong reactions to bangs. Children, even. And strangers. Especially strangers.

Bryan’s nephew: [Pointing at Kelly Ripa on TV] “Jillian!”

Adorable!

Waitress: “Are you ready to order? OMG I LOVE your HAIR!”

Gee, thanks!

Oreo Jones: “You look like you belong in Fountain Square.”

Such a compliment!

Bryan’s nephew: [Pointing at Phoebe from Friends on TV] “Jillian!”

Eh, random, but cute!

Guy at the liquor store: “Credit or debit? Does it take you a long time to get your hair like that?”

Umm, no, that’s a weird question. But thanks for noticing!

Little girl at the mall: [Wide-eyed, tugging on my coat] “Are you Taylor Swift?”

You are the sweetest! And definitely no.

Bryan’s nephew: [Pointing at Lady Gaga on TV] “Jillian!”

Uh oh.

Guy in line behind me at grocery store: “Excuse me, but has anyone ever told you that you look like Lady Gaga?”

Oh no.

Cashier at Trader Joe’s: “Does it take you a long time to get your hair like that?”

Why do men keep asking me that?

Seeing a family friend for the first time in a long time: “Oh whoa! LADY GAGA!”

Oh no no no.

Cashier at Trader Joe’s: “So, do you like having you hair like that?”

Uh, yeah…?

Some older woman: “You look kind of like that singer? What’s her name?”

Jillian: “Beyoncé?”

Some older woman: “Who? No… What’s her name? Lady something? The one with the crazy costumes?”

Not familiar.

Cashier at Trader Joe’s: “So, how long have you had your hair like that?”

How long have you been so annoying?

Woman in yoga class: “OH MY GOD, IS THAT A WIG? ARE YOU WEARING A WIG IN YOGA?!”

Um, NO! And rude!

Cashier at Trader Joe’s: “Have you ever noticed that Lady Gaga’s hair is kind of like yours?”

HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT YOU’RE THE ABSOLUTE WORST?
