Am i tripping?
Hey guys, so i wanted to ask your opinion about something. So , i work at a financial institution. And this past Friday, we had a holiday outing for all the employees. We did a gift exchange , etc etc. during that time we also had drinks and everything. So, while we were all socializing and everything, we’re talking to one of older male (white) coworkers, and he proceeds to tell me that he doesn’t like when i wear my hair short (meaning natural). He like it straight, and “i should wear it straight”. My hair shrinks a lot, so it appears shorter than normal of course. Currently i have it straightened, and when i do, him and our manager makes a huge deal about it, complimenting me and everything. I don’t know why, but his comment made me feel so uncomfortable. Because i like wearing my hair natural and embracing my natural curl pattern. When he told me this, i honestly didn’t know what to say. Today is Monday, but for some reason m still dwelling about that. Do you all think I’m overreacting? Should i be this bothered about my coworkers comments about my hair, or should i just brush it off? I want to hear your thoughts.
