Drunken idiot at a wedding..

I was at a wedding last night and as we were leaving I had stopped to say goodbye to someone and she had been talking to this (really drunk) guy and as I was talking to her this guy out of nowhere looks at me and says, really sarcastically, "Nice perm". It was just a really mean tone of voice and all that, you know what I mean. My DH was standing right next to me and I hear him under his breath go "uh oh" and next thing I know he's defending me! He says to this idiot hey actually it's naturally curly and this and that and the idiot says oh that's natural well then I like it...

I asked him so if this was a perm it would be ugly but since it's natural it's ok? He stumbled all over his words saying something about growing up around people who got perms or something stupid, I don't know I just said goodbye to my friend and walked away while he was still talking. Drunken fool.

    He was just a drunk jerk who probably used to be a bully in school. Don't let his hateful words effect you.

    Ugh. What a *******. My guess is he's not much better when he's sober...

    It's hard to dismiss comments that are hurtful, even when we know that they came from somebody not in control of his body or mind. I'll bet you looked wonderful and that during the course of the time you spent at the wedding, other people either complimented your hair or secretly wanted to!

    I'm sorry that incident happened to you. Alcohol just really doesn't do much for people.

    Amen, Jillipoo! Like you, I bet that guy wasn't much better sober. There seems to be alot more bullies out there now. Years ago, a guy like that wouldn't dare say something as rude as that. People had more respect for each other. I am also sorry you had to hear that guy say that, Jess2316. There's alot of plain old mean people in this world. But, as you can see from the support your getting here, there are alot more good people!

    Idiot I tell you. If it makes you feel any better, someone once called me Michael Jackson...cuz you know how he used to have curly hair? At least you weren't compared to a man...:sad8:. I'm sorry you had to come across a jerk like that.

    OMG ... I was called Michael Jackson by this guy at the gym. I look really young for my age so I think guys think I'm some early 20 something that will be too scared to respond back. I started telling him off in front of everyone at the gym & I haven't seen him since. It's incredibly rude. I get comments like I used to have hair like yours when perms were in fashion. Umm ... right ... well, my hair is natural and I don't think that you could ever have curls like mine no matter how much you were prepared to pay for them. Seriously, I am dark skinned & my hair has an afro texture. Get a clue ... anyone who isn't ignorant would know my hair is natural.

    What an idiot. :evil1: He's probably compensating for something, if you KWIM. :wink:

    I love that your DH stood up for your hair though. That's awesome.

    Thanks everyone! I am definately not letting it bother me, I almost thought it was funny. At the time I was a little po-ed...but I'm over it. I kinda thought it was funny that if it was a perm it was ugly and if it is natural then that's ok..doesn't make sense to me but WHATEVER!!

    I also was amused at my DH's initial response, the under the breath "uh-oh"...ha he thought I was gonna lay into him. But he did it for me, what a sweetie. :love7: Oh yeah and lots of other people had positive comments on my hair that night. They have all seen me a million times but that night my hair was ULTRA curly and everyone commented on it :)

    Some idiots will say to me "I love your 80's hair". Ummm...okay, how is naturally curly hair "80's hair"? I'm done with being nice when people make ******* comments. :evil1:

    Some people should definitely think before they speak....I have a perfect example to go along with yours. I went to the mall last Sunday to just to window shop and walked past one of those kiosks with the flat irons and their lovely assistant straighteners... and the guy said to me would you like yours straightened and I took one look at him and said no thanks I happen to like my curls. My two guy friends I was with laughed and the guy just looked at me with his mouth gapping open....I showed him...:toothy7::wink::laughing7:

    Why that drunken a******...thankfully your hubby stood up for you. Had it been me the comment was made to, I probably would have let go with a really nasty comeback because drunks make me sick when they open their mouths and trash comes out. I just cannot consider the source and let it go.
    I LOVE my curls...finally! :toothy4:
