If you assume, you make an ass out of u and me. In this case, more of yourself. Women aren't confined to a single hairstyle, and it might not always be long or thick enough to cover something that big as mentioned. I'm no feminist, just hate generalizations.

How does somebody else assuming something make an ass out of you too? People are responsible for their own actions. There's no need to feel like you did something wrong just because a stranger made an assumption.

Perhaps it's because of the extremism and man-hating that often goes on with feminists. (Waits for down votes because I know there are tons of feminists here.)

If you know your company doesn't want visible tattoos don't get visible tattoos and then complain when you get busted for it. I know I have to say this next part for a certain audience, so... I know she might have gotten the tattoo before she started working there but if the policy is "no visible tattoos" then cover them. If you uncover them it's your own fault.

Holy feminists batman.

It was safe to assume for #1 that the hair could be covered by the tattoo.

Even if a female has short hair it generally isn't buzzed like a mans hair and considering the fml says that some hair was ripped out, that's pretty much an indicator too...

31- the expression comes from the fact that if you take "ass" "u" "me" and put them together you get the word assume. I find it to be a silly expression for the reason you mentioned but that's the general intention.

Not to mention she said a tattoo behind the ear. It's not impossible in the day and age, but it is improbable that a guy has a little tattoo right behind his ear. Kind of like pierced belly buttons, that's typically a woman thing.

Depending on where you work, why not just cover the tattoo with your hair? I could see why you'd have to keep your hair up if you worked in a restaurant. But if you work in an office or something, just keep your hair down. You'll save yourself the pain of ripping hair out and having to buy band aids all the time!!

What ever happened to freedom of expression?

  LifeMD  |  14

Freedom of expression protects you from being prosecuted by the government. You still have responsibility for all your actions and others are free to treat you as they please.


You live In Canada juststephere, you don't have any freedoms. Also, please stop trying to steal some freedom by keeping our bald eagles hostage.

Just wanted to clear something up Canadians have more freedom than you, you should even do some research on the topic and btw legal drinking age is 18 so that's better than 21

Well I didn't mean to cause an uproar! I'm very educated in my rights and I understand what they mean. Everyone has a right to express themselves as they wish, but I also understand that sometimes it can go to far and people will be required to take responsibility. What I'm saying is why should this person be written up for a tattoo behind the ear? That's all! Sorry for any confusion.

#53 Canada is number 6 on the list of the most free countries in the world (economically) and rising. The United States is number 12 and dropping. Blind American "freedom" at it's best.

Shouldn't have gotten a tattoo at all

I know, right? OP could've gotten her tattoo after she was hired, so I suppose it's possible the boss never knew about it, but to get written up over it? Sadly, I've known a few bosses/managers who were actually this ignorant and I'm very much hoping for the follow up.

  clrichmond2009  |  24

I had a boss that saw my arm was a little red (from having just gotten a tattoo, not that he knew that because my sleeve completely covered it), lifted my sleeve, saw the tattoo and wrote me up, claiming it was visible.

  HammyBear13  |  8

Bosses can be jerks. I got written up for reporting sexual harrasment from another coworker towards me. Shitty bosses suck. However, i wish there were a follow up for this, explainin if the boss already knew about the tat and never did anything or if he only wrote OP up because of the complaint, or what....

  Meettitan  |  14

How is the boss a jerk? It's ops fault completely for having a tattoo and not knowing it was against the rules at her workplace. Lots of companies frown upon visible tattoos, so be smart about where you're getting them and don't get mad when someone thinks it makes you look unprofessional.

  Demoniq  |  25

If I had to try and figure that out, I'd probably offend someone myself or stereotype... So let's just leave it at a big general "people are assholes" comment ;)

I know this most likely doesn't apply in the states, but where I come from (Japan), tattoos were found only on yakuza members. Nowadays young people here also get tats as a form of body art, but most people here still don't like it because of the stigma it carries.

  DriAA7  |  17

#7: I don't get the big deal about tattoos either. Unless they are made up of offensive materials, I don't think it should be a big deal. A tattoo doesn't usually effect how well a person does their job.

  annie_nk  |  22

I'm wondering how a band-aid could rip out her hair (assuming OP is female). They don't exactly have wax strip like strength. It makes sense that behind the ear wouldn't fit snug as you suggest so it probably didn't have a good grip on the hair anyway. Unless it was one of those fabric band-aids. Those fuckers are mean.

  OysterPearls  |  33

The hairs behind your ears and around your neck are usually very fine and short, so it makes sense to me that a fresh bands is could rip/pull them and cause pain. My advice is to touch the adhesive with your finger multiple times so that the oils make it less sticky, but just sticky enough to stay in place.

there just jealous because they want tattoos. say its like your human rights to express yourself

  sweetest_jenn  |  18

Your rights ends where another person's rights begin. You have the right to tattoo whatever you want on your body, and other people have the right to judge you if they don't like it. While I myself like body art and I have tattoos myself, I get them in places I can easily hide so as to maintain a professional image at my workplace. But using the "freedom of speech/freedom of expression" thing isn't gonna work too well for anyone. Employers have the right to turn you away if they don't see you fitting with their image. It's that simple.


So, if I feel like expressing myself by telling my customers what I ACTUALLY think about them, I can't get fired because it's a human right?

Sweet! Thanks for the awesome advice-I can't wait to get to work today!
