You May Not Touch!!!!

This morning I was having a conversation with a colleague at work and this random lady in our office has the nerve to just grab and touch my hair!! I don't know if I was having a bad start, but this really irritated me. She did not even ask!!! I don't know if I have written on this topic before, but if I have oh well...I found this picture a little while ago and it pretty much sums up how I feel at this point with regards to people touching my hair!

I use to be understanding and polite about it if you were nice enough to ask, but now why? Why do you want to touch my hair? It is just hair!!! My motto is that if you have is good. I will admit that my hair might not look like what most people assume about black people's hair, but it is just hair. Rather I have it straight, curly, down, up, or in a ponytail people want to touch it. I get tired of going into explanations of my ethnicity, rather I am black (which I have been a black person), or conversations about what you would do if you had my hair.

Okay I think I am done with my venting and ranting for the morning....Hope everyone can go through the day without random strangers touching their hair!!

LOL!! I love this graphic! I think the unknown and curiosity is what leads people to touch our hair.
