Vote of Confidence

So, earlier today my boss comes in to get a file and give instructions. I'm sitting at my desk while he is standing up behind me. We're discussing one of our clients when he rather suddenly stops mid-sentence and glares at the top of my head.

"Hey, I'm sorry but you have THE loongest nappiest gray hair riiight there..."

and before I can even properly respond to this embarrassment, he just YANKS, then looks at his hand and says "oops, well at least I got it..." as he hands me this little clump of about 5 or 6 hairs (ouch) that he pulled! Then he just shrugs and walks out as I ponder what the hell kind of facial expression this situation deserves.

UH! Has he never heard of boundaries? Personal space? Hello!


Maybe you should reach out and touch his nose and say, " have a really...big...booger...right there."

The nerve.

I plucked a gray eyebrow the other day.

Well, now I've got reason number 9 on my "Why it ain't so bad being bald" list.

Too f'n wierd!

Thats real messed up. He deserves a cockpunch.


Rootietoot said...

I have several grey eyebrows. I prefer to call them "platinum blonde"

Fluffycat said...

Oh that is so annoying. You should get him back and like grab some of his waist-fat and go, wow, I can totally pinch an inch here.

I hate to brag too much, but I only have one or two gray hairs, totally not noticeable. Yay fountain of youth!

rootietoot - I KNOW, you're telling me! The next day I put my hair up in a bun, just to be on the safe side.

becky & rootie - I've never noticed a gray eyebrow before, but I suppose now I better keep an eye out for one!

iamnot - ha, that's good!

BER - you made me snort out loud! :)

fluffycat - yeah, I guess I'm pretty lucky too that it's not going gray all over but once in a while there's a pesky hair that gets past me (obviously, but not past him) - guess I'll have to think about coloring it again!

Okay... that waist pinch thing... too freakin' funny. You should totally do that. Like, on a Friday (ooh! that's TODAY!, and just before you leave for the weekend, so you have a few days to recover.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Whoa, that's, just, wow. My boss won't even get into a discussion about what we each did over the weekend, so I can't imagine her violating my personal space and boundaries like that.
