I’d Rather Be Bald

, , , | Working | May 15, 2018

(I am walking into a department store when a woman thrusts a box into my hands.)

Woman: “Here, you need this!”

(I look at the box and see it contains a bottle of shampoo, priced at £69.99.)

Me: “I’m not paying £70 for a bottle of shampoo!”

Woman: “But you need to, otherwise that lovely hair—” *trying to stroke my hair but I flinch away* “—will be ruined!”

Me: “I’m not paying £70 for a bottle of shampoo.”

Woman: “But your hair will be all nasty and greasy. This shampoo has natural oils and minerals that—”

Me: “I’m not paying £70 for a bottle of shampoo.”

(I handed it back to her and walked to another part of the store. I heard her huff and say, “Fine.” Periodically while I’m shopping I could hear other shoppers exclaim their refusal to pay such a price for shampoo.)
