We just found out that the new performance evaluation system where I work is going to have the pictures from our employee IDs in it. When I had that picture taken, I was just growing my hair long again. It was at that awkward length where it's just passing the shoulders. My hair now is a little longer than BSL, and I wear it up all the time.

I commented that my ID picture was close to 10 years old, so my boss wanted to see it. He exclaimed "Your hair was long!" I told him it's still long, I just wear it up. He giggled and changed the subject. I should wear it down one day and see how he reacts. He probably wouldn't even notice.

Thats so funny! :D

But a lot of ppl doesn't seem to understand that hair in buns etc actually are long hair. :rolleyes:
I too vote for you to wear it down one day at work just to see his reactions!

I wonder what he thinks is balled up on the top of my head. He must think it is just some kind of special holder for my hair toys.

I thought it was funny that he would even consider my hair to be long in that picture. In fact, I wanted to explain to him that while I consider my hair now to be long, the length in the picture could be classified as medium, but not long. I had to remind myself that I was at work, and my boss probably didn't care to hear about my hair length classification system.

This has been happening to me at my job, too! Most of them had never seen my hair down until I joined LHC and asked one of them to take some progress photos for me. But for me, I think it's that I have such extreme taper; I don't have much volume compared to my length.

He may just notice! He may not even recognize you.

I wore my hair down at school one day (a once in a blue moon occasion) and my teacher didn't even recognize me! I raised my hand to answer a question, and he said, "Who are you?" I told him my name, and then he said "Where did all the hair come from?" :agape:He was very perplexed.

I understand about updos confusing people. I bun my braid more often than not now. When I went into work yesterday a friend of mine asked if I got a haircut, because apparently not showing the length means that. :lol:

I've had that happened to me! We were out doing our end-of-the-year water rockets and I was facing the other direction, with my hair down for once, and he needed me for something and couldn't recognize me for all the hair. :lol: Some people...
