A Hair Misheard

, , , , , , , , | Working | September 17, 2023

I’m in the staff break room, and [Coworker #1] is doing a crossword.

Coworker #1: “Hey, what’s that fancy word for a wig?”

Me: “Hairpiece?”

Coworker #1: “Too many letters. What’s that fancy French word I’m thinking of, though?”

Coworker #2: “Oh! Lopayseeya!”

Me: “Lopa… What? I’ve never heard that.”

Coworker #2: “Oh, yeah, [Boss] told me about it when she showed me her wig.”

Me: “Huh. Well, she wears a wig; I guess she’d know.”

Coworker #1: “Hold on a second. Did she tell you about her wig and then say something like, ‘I have a lopaseeya?'”

Coworker #2: “Yeah, exactly!”

Coworker #1: “[Coworker #2], she has alopecia.”

We had to find it online to make him believe alopecia was real. We also found the word “toupee”.
