Did I Ask For Your Opinion?

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?


  1. Yeah I changed my hair for the last 2 days and people have said oh you changed your hair and a few have said I like the change. I don't know what to think.


  2. It is good I always wear the same thing so no one has anything to say, right? : ) Have a happy day!

  3. Gosh, how horrible that people can be so critical! I wouldn't ever think of saying something like that.

    Stopping by from SITS :)

  4. I would never tell anyone I didn't like how they looked. Well, okay, sometimes I call my mom out for wearing pants that stop somewhere above her ankles (but aren't supposed to.) I had a coworker who was notorious for commenting on my clothes with comments like, "Did you gain weight recently?" or "That skirt doesn't look that good on you." Seriously.

  5. Yeah, I still can't believe people say things like that too to a complete stranger. And I've been hearing about it for 15 years!

  6. No I wouldn't, but I'd tell everyone that would listen after I left what an awful hairdo or outfit the cashier was wearing. Just kidding. If you are neat and clean what makes the difference if I like your hairdo or your outfit. No skin off my teeth.

    Have a terrific day. :)
