Today, I dyed my hair purple. I came out of the salon and a little girl walked past and said, "Wow, you look like a mermaid!", to which her mother quickly said, "No she doesn't, she looks like her parents don't love her." FML

That's ridiculous. If anything, that little girl's mother doesn't love HER enough to let her express herself. She's teaching her daughter to judge others based on what they look like. Parenting fail.

People these days have no manners...

#29 Please stop saying "these days" as if this is some new occurrence

Because there was literally no one without manners until this generation, right, 29? Oh... Wait... There was ALWAYS people without manners and, unfortunately, there always will be.

people have ALWAYS - said the younger generation were failing and going to pot. There are records of it in like the 1200s where professors talk about the younger generation and how disastrous they are.

There's no need to be so hostile about it. Girls used to be sent to school to learn nothing but how to be a proper lady (I.e. learn her manners and social courtesies) So, yes, technically speaking I do think we can say people have less manners "these days".

Say that your her in 20 years

thanks for the correction #12 my tired brain couldn't figure out what #2 was trying to say :)

Well at least someone thought you were a mermaid

I have to wonder if the mother had purple hair too with that kind of judgment.

Purple hair is awesome!

Show it anyway

You need to go back to your kindergarten class, because you're clearly not mature enough to understand what you're talking about.

Maturity has no place here. This is not an advice forum. Bring back the sledging. It brightens up people's day!

Could you maybe stop targeting me? It's none of your business what I say in my comments.

Do YOU need a hug?

Not from you, that's for sure.

Perhaps a tissue?

No thanks. Pretty sure any from you would be covered in jizz stains, anyway.

lol, real mature :)

Ooh, because I totally care what someone on the internet thinks of me. Especially here. Get over yourself, kiddo.

Also, it's pretty obvious you're the one down-voting all my replies. My advice: don't dish it out if you can't take it.

I think you miss understand, I am enjoying this :)

So was I, briefly. But now you're starting to bore me. Have a nice night.

I really don't understand why some people think this is a YDI. I know purple isn't a typical hair color, but it has no bearing on how intelligent or good a person is...or how much their parents love them.

It's really sad how the small things a parent can say to a child can shape how they will judge people when they are older. No one is ever born racist. No one is ever born religious either now that I come to think of it, we should be allowed to choose the way we feel about things not get told what is and isn't by our parents.

That is very good advice, something we should all take into account.

your answer to that lil child " your mom is jealous honey"

Your answer to that lil child: I *am* a mermaid!

That's harsh
