Sounds about right, 41. I used to have really long hair and it's amazing how many people see that as an invitation to touch it! Though when I went to cut it and it get it donated, the hairdresser actually tried to talk me out of it because she didn't want to ruin what she called beautiful hair. You can never win, OP. Stay inside, or wear a hat. Or avoid crazy-ass ladies. Maybe all 3.
haha yay I'm not alone. But actually the reason they touch ny hair so much is because it's NOT nappy. it's really soft and thin and that's what they like. In the summer it will get puffy giving it a nappy look but not really and the only time it does get nappy is if I don't wash it for a couple of days but I almost never do that.
If you want to get them to stop start yelling "RAPE" and "HELP! IM BEING KIDNAPPED" they will run and you will not be bothered
@#7 Apparently in schools now, they're teaching kids when you come across a nutcase, you yell "FIRE" and not "HELP"/"IM BEING KIDNAPPED"/"RAPE" etc. Because studies show people usually don't want to get involved and less will actually respond to anything along the lines of "help me". Smh at the world. I'd help. :(
It probably has something to do with all these immature dumbass tween/teens/general idiots who will scream "RAPE!!!1" "HELP ME!" and of course "I NEED AN ADULT!!!" out in the general public when screwing around with friends. It's sad but I'm nearly desensitized to those words. I'm in high school right now with idiots who 'scream' that shit daily. If it sounded like a person was in serious pain, that'll probably grab my attention. A person in pain sounds different from people who are being stupid.
Part of it isn't so much that people don't want to get involved, but there's an actual syndrome for it. I can't quite recall the name, but in more populated areas, people don't help because they think someone else will. It's a mental compulsion that people actually have to fight. There was a murder several decades ago where around 61(?) people heard the victim call out, but no one helped because everyone thought someone else would go and call the police or would be closer to help. The more people that are around, the worse it gets. That's why in first aid, they train you to single someone out like "hey. You with the green shirt. Call 911" cause if you just say "someone call 911", no one actually will. As for calling "Fire" instead, everyone likes gawking at fires and there's no limit on how many people can stand around and watch. So it grabs attention better.
it's too true that people do sometimes yell things like "RAPE" jokingly, especially teenagers. in middle school, a friend of mine would yell it all the time when we were goofing around. of course, we later found out that, at the time, he was being molested by his father at home, so maybe there was a good reason for it.
@thatfancypenn I'll bet your extremely ugly in real life. That's why you don't show your face in your profile picture. You've already proven that you're an asshole. @glabberfasted I'm also a ginger. I get amazing comments on my hair and people have told me that its good luck to rub my hair. Although I've never had a crazy lady try and steal it from me, haha.
I feel your pain, OP. I've had strangers come up and drape my hair over their own heads, asking if they could have it... Let no bad happen.
That is such a creepy compliment! Sorry about all the crazies in this world OP! Sleep with one eye open tonight!
