Ok ladies: So I'm at work and I decide to take my break. I go into the break room and sit down, and I notice one of my supervisors trailing in behind me. She's a lil older than me, so mid-to-late 20s, she's black, really pretty.
So, I notice she doesn't have anything to eat or drink in her hand, but sometimes I don't eat at work so I didn't think anything of it. I'm on IG so I have my head buried in my phone, but I can still see her standing over me. (Being on my phone doesn't make me blind). Then I see her index finger coming towards my head! ..."Can I help you?"

"Oh!! I'm sorry!!!"

Seriously heaux? Like, for what? So then she sits down at the same table I'm sitting at and stares at me for 2-3 minutes. Again I ask, "Can I help you?"

"Oh, is that your real hair?"

"No, it's weave."

"Really? Wow...really? Why do you tell people it's weave?"

"Because people keep asking."

"What kind of hair is it?"

"Kinky curly."

"Oh, well where'd you get it from?"

"The internet."

Seriously, I don't mind people asking and I don't mind telling. But attempting to put your fingers in my hair.. like, for what?? What do you want? Can I help you b*tch?

*Sigh* Ok, rant over, lol.

I respect the fact that some people don't want people touching their hair. Strangely, it doesn't bother me.

I don't mind it if people ask first. I've let a couple of people touch my hair and my weave.

For ME, it's usually non Black people that do this.

Buuut, I live in a city that's 93% Mexican and if you don't touch the item (or person), that you complimented, it's considered "ojo"/bad luck.

If you tell someone "I like your earrings.", you're expected to touch them as well, so the owner doesn't lose or break them.

Same for a baby. If you say someone's baby is cute, you're expected to touch the baby, which is a big "no-no" for most Black folks.

@Cream that's a neat lil tidbit. I love learning about different cultures and the juxtapositions of cultural practices and traditions. However, lol, I did not receive a compliment, so the uninvited index finger is still lame.

@Princess Grace That's the truth, girl. I have never let a chick, petty as she may be, mess up my money, honey.
