I think I would have said something back, but in a very polite manner, I think it would have shot him down two ways:
A) he wouldn't get the type of attention he obviously wants
B) it would show how immature he is, comparatively.
And I bet your hair looked great and he was just being a little... unpleasant person.
It is still surprising to me, after 2 and a half years of college, to see the way some college students behave.
I went to a public high school, and wow, the kids there were bloody ridiculous.
I took a lot of honors and AP classes, so I bet I didn't get the half of it.
Then, when I came to college, I started off in the honors classes, and then, when there weren't really any more for me to take, I had to start taking regular classes.
I am starting to see why they called my old high school the "east" campus for the college, and why they call the college the "west ___ high school."
Sorry for thread derailment!
And sorry for the comment you got.
