I've had work today and my hair is starting to grow now.

I did try to straighten it, but I didn't have enough time and I also had to walk to work so the rain can't have helped the stiffness or positioning of my hair.

Customers the other side of the bar took the piss. :(

I kind of took it as a joke, but then it does also feel slightly hurtful.

Such comments like I've got a mohawk or whatever you call it, and asking me what I'd done to my hair today. :No:

I need to lighten up really, especially when one of the blokes doing it had hardly any hair on his head anyway!!!

What got to me was when I said it was unique and that the world was of full of jealousy that one of them said it definitely was unique all-right, but he said it in a really
rather disgustful tone.

Ahhhh well!

Sounds like they were just asking, no need to get touchy.

yeah I think you're right.


They were just having a laugh, but it can go too far if you know what I mean.

Slag them back or just take the piss out of your hair, say it's a new style or some crap like that... that's what pub banter is all about. It's a great learning curve actually in how to deal with situations like that and sure they're just testing you out, seeing if you have the ability to waffle and have a laugh. Once you grow accustomed to it it's fairly easy to sort out the people who enjoy a bit of banter and the ones who are just genuine ar$eholes.

True.

I did have a laugh back

I just told them that it fucked up because I had to walk to work in the rain which was true.

I made a joke about it and said I was all curly Shirley. http://images.digita
