I always dread getting a haircut or wearing new clothes at work. Why? Because customers notice everything and always comment on it.
I can always tell when they don't like my hair. I hear things like:
"You changed your hair."
"You did something different to your hair."
"What'd you do to your hair?"
Of course, there are the rare awesome customers that say things I like to hear:
"Ooh, you changed your hairstyle. I like it!"
"Your hair looks good."
And so on.
Same with clothes. I can tell when I'm wearing something that isn't flattering, because I won't hear a word about my outfits. If I decide to dress in what I consider nice, I'll hear compliments all day long.
And then there's the customers that just stare at you and say nothing, and I can't tell if they like something on me or not.
For the ones that make the not-so-nice comments, it makes me wonder why they do that to a complete stranger. I didn't ask whether or not they liked my hair or clothes, I just showed up for work.
Sometimes it's just better to keep your opinions to yourself.
Would you ever walk into a store and tell a cashier that you didn't like how they looked?
