Dear Ann Landers:
My husband has always been on the conservative side, until about six months ago when he decided to let his hair grow.
I didn't say anything until his hair got longer than mine. Then I demanded that he get a haircut. He refused. To teach him a lesson, I took the scissors and gave myself a baldy bob. He said I looked like a billiard ball and called me a spiteful nut. I agreed to let my hair grow if he would cut his. His answer was, "I refuse to be blackmailed. No deal."
Last night, out of sheer frustration (and after a few drinks) I went to the bathroom and shaved my head. I walked into the room and said, "How do you like this?" He nearly died. Now my husband refuses to be seen in public with me until my hair grows out. I realize I made a mistake but I feel his terms are too harsh. What do you say, Ann?
VergoAnn's response is straightforward:
Buy a wig and stay away from the booze.The best part? There's an ad on the page for "Unwanted hair removal" and another one for wigs! Contextual advertising at its best.
Personally, I think people should be free to express themselves through their hairstyle if they want, so I think she should have let her husband be. Still, I do admire her style - she was definitely ahead of her time!
