One Little, Two Little, Three Little Indian Braides...

So I have decided to get off my crying depressed ass and to live again with passion and fury. This is my way of not crossing the line at work but having my moccasin on it. I was talking to a friend and I was telling them that every time worked pissed me off I was going to put a dread lock in my hair. She replied "You can't do that you're an Indian, Indian do Braides.

Like I said before if you've been reading me a while...a while back maybe 5 years ago I posted a blog about dread locks. Well one way is braiding. After you braid your hair it takes about a year and it will form into a dread lock. Just leave it alone. Never take it out, wash your hair every two days...

So here is my first braid...it's a start. My way of saying fuck you and your bad treatment of me to work. In a years time I wonder how many braids I will have?
I also have a problem with their dress code. I've been wearing blue jeans to work for 5 years, I was told yesterday the next time I wear blue jeans to work security will escort me to the front doors, they didn't say anything about black jeans...

And the war wages on hear my Indian war cry!

Excellent!!! Indians wear braides - that is great. You go girl - and I've been told the same thing about my blue jeans. I get really upset when that happens - who is anybody to tell me what I can or can't wear. Pull out those black jeans and have at it.

Fucking idiots. Do they want you to make a fashion statement or provide quality care to the patients?

I'm all about being a little passive aggressive. I should post a pic of my shirt that a friend made for me in protest of some shit going down at work. It's some classic stuff!

Demand they produce a copy of the dress code then and there. Don't give them time to "make something up". Demand that they provide proof that all employees received said copy.

I'm with Granny: braids AND war paint! Asshats.

Feel your friends boobies? that could make one very unpopular... or popular... depending on who your friends are....I have a particular friend who has the most beautiful boobies I have ever seen.. or felt.. but thats another story for another day.

Anyway.. Glad you have decided not to be depressed anymore.. and have chosen to move on to crazy. much more fun.

braids? ouch! I could not stand to do that.. I think it would hurt....

Security? They want you out...
Wear the jeans,take a cam, and get the escort...post it on You Tube, making certain that the company's logo is highly visible.
Settle out-of-court...maybe.
I wish it were a perfect world, or at least a little bit better...

Congrats on the new baby-to be!
It is a little bit better!

If they are enforcing a dress cod make sure everyone is following it. Then tell them that if they are going to make you wear different clothes than you have been for years they should give you a uniform allowance.
Sounds to me as if their singling you out. One idiot manager that The Boss works for was trying to do that until his boss came back from vacation and wrote him up for it.
New baby coming! Oh boy that’s always fun especially when you can spoil them and then send them home.
If I did that every time I got pissed at work I would quickly run out of hair and I haven’t had it cut in over two years. I keep asking my 14 year old granddaughter to braid it and she thinks I’m joking.

I'm not far from you in Turners Falls, MA.

My work situation sucks too. Big time. I can identify with your post.

Good luck.

Isn't there any place else to work around there? They don't deserve to have an employee as good as you.
