I had most of my hair cut off last Saturday. It was kind of a whim, and I am still deciding whether or not I like it. (Mostly, I just go “AAHHH!!! My hair is gone!” when I look in the mirror. Although I am finally getting used to it.)
Anyway, most people have complimented me on my do, which is nice because I was seriously second-guessing myself and could use the affirmation, but two (2!) of my coworkers have expressed horror at my new haircut. “Oh no! Your hair was so pretty! Why did you cut it off?” That sort of thing. One of them reassured me, “Don’t worry, it’ll grow back.” Gee, thanks. I am rarely at a loss for words, but these comments really had me tounge-tied.
So, first of all, any ideas on what to say to this sort of comment?
Second, share with me your stories of inappropriate comments that left you wondering “WTF am I supposed to say to that?”.
