So this just happened a second ago:
I’m a black girl with natural hair. I had a customer come to my window and ask why I didn’t comb my hair. Actually his exact words were “you come to work without coming your hair? Tsk tsk tsk”
I said “excuse you?” And he has the audacity to repeat it exactly like that.
I asked him “was that an insult?”
“No, it wasn’t an insult”
“Well it didn’t sound like a compliment”
“It wasn’t a compliment”
“So you’re trying to insult me?”
He mumbled something but I just finished his transaction and walked away.
This is not the first time people have made inappropriate comments about my hair. I’ve had a few people call me “Buckwheat” or say I look like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket. I told myself that I’m not gonna be nice anymore. I’m tired of customers tbh
