So, this guy starts talking to me and asking why I have dreads and whatnot. And I tell him simply, 'because I love them'. He then proceeds to tell me, "dreads aren't cute thoughhhhhh
you look so much cuter before you had them..."
"they just look dirty."
on anyone, not just you."
"plus, that whole hippie thing was over in the 90s!
nobodies into that stuff anymore!"
"like the greatful dead! apparently they have no idea what talent is
they're like one of the worst bands i've ever heard.
and like phish and stuff"
" maybe i don't do enough LSD to enjoy shitty music...
or wear enough tye dye"
think you'd be a lot cuter without "dreads"
like its 2011"
"because dreadlocks arent the way you look!
its just a stupid decision that alters the way people percieve you!
stupid, but true!"
"i don't even think like gas stations hire people with dreadlocks
like i don't know why somebody would want to so drastically alter their appearance when they know people will just constantly judge them
its stupid but its true"
if you have dreads
college is pointless
because you go to college for jobs
and jobs won't hire you with dreads.
plain and simple."
I mean maybe the mentality I have about jobs isn't the best, I believe if a job wont hire me because of the way I look, I honestly wouldn't want to work there anyways, which I had said to him. He then replies, "its people who don't give a fuck, like yourself
that make the hardworking people of america, like myself
Who's going to be attending college without any help? This chick, doing a job she loves, living a life she loves.
Sorry about the rant. It's stupid things like this that piss me off. I just had to get this off my chest. Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!
