THEN, while i was pumping my gas, they proceeded to drive by slowly in their car and take a picture of me. all the while howling with laughter. really? what the hell is wrong with people? i understand if you dont like my hair, thats fine, i dont care, but dont be rude about it.
Gah I know what you mean >< its really abnoxious and annoying more than anything else.


Generally (I think its because of my clothing when I go out clubbing etc) I get called 'Predator' or similar... not too bad really haha

Today in my GP's there was a woman (admittedly she was a bit of a chav) with her two kids. Her little girl who looked about 8 or 9 was asking me about my hair, and if I was Stephanie from Lazy town (lol) while her mum was booking an appointment.
I was talking to this girl and told her I wasn't Stephanie but I do like lazy town and my favourite is Robby Rotten when her mum noticed her asking me questions and slapped her round the back of the head and shouted "DONN YEW TALKTA FUREAKS, YER HEAR ME CHANTELLE?" then gave me one of the most disgusted, horrible glares ever. She then went on to tell the reception staff (who know me quite well) that "HERS CAUSIN TROUBLE, HEAR ME? SHOULD WATCH OUT FER HER TYPE". Her poor kids looked absolutely horrified.

That is actually the first really nasty person I've come across :s

That sort of thing has happened to me as well. At the time I was working in a pre school. The irony! :|

What a horrible thing to teach kids.

Thats awful :c Its happened to be before too, where the parents are like "ugh, I'll kill you if you ever end up like THAT." It just goes to show how much prejudice and hatred is learned. Seriously, if no one was taught that 'our kind' was weird they'd just think it was cool. Just like fearing snakes and spiders and other creepy things; most babies dont give a fuck about spiders if you show them to them at a young age, its when they see their parents or tv or whatever going "oh ewww snakes and spiders are scary and grosssss" and they learn it. People suck.

That's exactly what I thought, I mean she was so excited about me having the same hair as Stephanie... I wasn't dressed horribly or anything, I'm just wearing a maxi dress and a pair of sandals, which is something completely different than I normally wear and I felt pretty "normal" (whatever normal means) :/

Poor little girl, and the boy was scared to look at me after. Luckily they left pretty quickly afterwards.

i went to the Wal*Mart late last night with the hubby to get cold medicine (he took break at wor to get me) and we kept hearing people talking and camera shutters.... excused it... Then we got in line and these bold arse mofos are taking my picture screaming "wtf is that ish? wth man? take a pic of that ish!!! that's ret*rded!!! (I hate that word!!!)" They were grown freakin men!!!! and then they followed us out of the store with it!!! Took all of my might to make sure hubby didn't hit em... or me for that matter..... An older lady and her granchild, maybe a few years younger than me, saw so they started to ask about it. Nicely. The last time I was in that store a buggy guy kindly asked for a picture... He could put it on the internet saying good bad or ugy things about it but at least he was polite.... If this idiots would have been nice about it I wouldn't give a flying fig! But who wants tto be sick and have people you don't know bash you for being yourself!!!! Mum made the "you wore it to get comments" statement she always gives... but I should be able to walk around butt naked w/o someone being stupid. omg.... seriously..... 10 times this week that something stupid has happened.......
this is my witty signature. love it. fear it <3 rawr!

Black is fine(well always has been with black people I know anyway), I'm guessing the language barrier makes it difficult?

Today at my doctors surgery the receptionist signed me in before I even got to the desk because she said she could see my beautiful hair from afar XD
And again at my doctors a little girl was so excited at the colour of her hair she almost wet herself. She was dancing around singing "PINK PINK PINKETY PINK YAAAYYYY". Her mum thought it was hilarious, until she realised her daughter really DID need the toilet lol.

Hahaha that's awesome! Little kids are so cute about it but around here the parents usually quiet them down rather quickly. I'd love for a little one to get that excited hahaa.

Hahaha, fair enough. People ask me quite often, in hushed tones, 'Where is your fella from?' I answer, in a similar conspiratorial whisper, 'Stretford'.

I also once got asked, 'Your baby is gorgeous. Is she a half-breed, like me?' I was neither amused nor polite.
What, that? It's a spade.

O_o half breed?? That's disgraceful. One of my friends married a black man, she says their children are mixed race.

Yup. Shocking. I told her that, if that's how she chose to view herself I couldn't argue but there was no way in hell she would refer to my child that way. It sounds like some category they wouldn't have at Crufts.

I actually had another interesting conversation the other day with someone who thought it was fine to call Jews 'Yids' because he'd heard the Tottenham supporters shouting 'Yid Army'. I was also glad he had mentioned it.

I had a interesting one this weekend. I played a gig in a small pub in great ayton and afterwards one of the men (who was like some kind of hardman/mobster) asked me if i wanted a comb :?: wha??

And then he said it later like 'i can believe you dont want a comb' so i said 'your having a laugh aint you mate? a comb wouldnt even get through these like' and he didnt get my sarcasm and just said 'thats why i asked if you wanted a comb'

doh :roll:
The show must go on. Inside my heart is breaking, my makeup may be flaking but my smile still stays on.
