Wigs

When I worked at Rockwell there was a manager there who was very bald. He still had the halo of hair, but it surrounded a very shiny dome. The kind of dome that made it look like he polished it before work each day. Then one day he came in and had a full head of wavy dark hair.

Does anyone know what the polite thing to do in that situation is? Do you compliment them on their wig? Do you pretend to go along with the illusion that they managed to grow a full head of hair in less than 24 hours? I don’t know…

I walked out to use the restroom, and there’s a secretary who sits behind a glass door in one of the offices that shares the building with us. Every day I see her as I walk to use the bathroom. She’s a nice looking black lady, with a tight bun of graying brown hair… Except for today. Today she had shoulder length, curly bleach blond hair. I did a double take to make sure it was her. And it was. Her with a wig.

Someone please tell me: what is the right reaction?

  1. I think in a situation like this, your best bet is to simply give a simple tug on the hair. LOL

    Then, well, it’s up to your smooth talking to determine how to get of the situation.

    This totally reminds me of a time I was in a conference. Now, i had never seen the guy before, but sitting in front of me was this gentleman with greyish brown hair on the halo part of his head with a reddish brown toupee covering the top part. My only real thought was, “can you not find a wig that covers your whole head or is the same colour as the rest of your head?”

    Anyways…
