Today Mr S and I were Christmas shopping and it was certainly bad hair day as far as the eye could see.
We had the older man in his black T-shirt and jeans with grey, tangled unwashed hair floating about.
We had the middle-aged man with protruding T-Shirt stomach and plaits down to his belt line.
We had the middle-aged women donning a buzz cut except for the pony-tail sprouting from the top of her head.
We had the let’s do a little bit of red and green colour because it’s Christmas.
What on earth? Did someone declare it National Bogun http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bogun day in Melbourne and I wasn’t informed?
Or is it a case of “Look at me …look at me – I don’t care what your reaction is as long as you look at me”.
- Your hair may be unwashed – you couldn’t find 3 minutes to run some shampoo through it – or would that mean crap I have to shower to?
- Your hair is a tangled mess – surely somewhere you possess a hairbrush – a comb – how about your hands?
- Plaits only look good on Heidi – so leave them with her.
- Your hair is buzzed with a pony-tail – what’s the pony tail for – trying to make the buzz cut look feminine?
- Your hair has wads of blaring red and green splashed through it – did you perhaps walk under a ladder with paint buckets?
I mean seriously people how about a little bit of personal pride?
Yes you can wear your (sweats) trackies and food stained T-shirt when you’re camping by a river – but would it hurt you to don a little something nice and also see to your hair whilst out in public?
Yes I know a lot may say – each to their own – what harm is it doing.
Call me an old dragon but I beg to differ, there are certainly days when I get out of bed with bed hair – but I brush it, if need be I wash it. I wouldn’t dream of setting foot out the door otherwise.
Granted you can slop around all you like in the privacy of your own home, or up the bush, but would it hurt you terribly to look in the mirror before you leave the house just to make sure you look reasonably presentable?
Or is that I attitude these days of I simply don’t care what anyone else thinks?
Personal appearance and taking pride in yourself should be at least of a little concern should it not?
When we look good – we feel good – maybe they haven’t heard of that?
We have a better attitude, we walk with shoulders back.
These folk today, slouched (and please they weren’t poor underprivileged souls who couldn’t look after themselves) as the majority were laden with large shopping bags filled with Christmas goodies. Perhaps I shall receive comments that they don’t look after themselves so that they can afford presents for their kids and family…no no I don’t believe that is the case. **shakes head vehemently**
No this was purely a case of …..I just don’t care and Pffft yes my followers it irritated me.
