People who touch my hair/head.

Not just family and friends (that annoys me too), but random complete strangers. If you are not my lover/mother/hair dresser, you do not have permission to touch my hair whenever you feel like it.

I always thought that was so gosh darn rude to do it it to people, so why do strangers do that to me? Today, I was very rudely startled by someone who I caught in the act of trying to touch my hair. I was outside sitting down on a cement banister trying to get my purse in order before walking back to my car. Out of the blue, I feel this hot and musky, garbage-smelling breath from behind me.
I was getting ready to turn around and tell the dude to back up a bit out of my personal space. Turns out... it was a woman! With her hand getting ready to touch something on me...my head presumably, since she already had her hand buried in my hair (I was having a big poofy hair day today, so that's why I didn't feel something immediately)

First off, how do ladies walk around with foul stank breath like that?
Is there not a sense of embarrassment about the bad breath?
Did she even brush her mouth today?!??
I mean, dayum! Usually that would keep people from coming to close to you, but nope, the not-so-fresh ones always wanna walk right up to ya!


Anyway, I just find it so rude that she felt like it was okay to touch me like that. A person's hair is as much a part of them as their leg or arm. Then she had the freaking nerve to ask me "That all yours?" I didn't say anything at that time, but I'm just now thinking to myself *Yep! And this big hair can be all yours too for free if you comb you hair our with an egg-beater.*
I really wasn't feeling good about my out-of-control hair today, and that incident has made me a little bit more self-conscious as I rarely every wear it down in public. I wish I could think of a snappy answer to say out loud in these kinds of situations, but now that I've had a few hours to stew over it, I just wanna go back and say stuff to her. Grrr.


But anyhow, as I am standing there kind of taken aback, again she continues to try to reach for my head. I said, "I don't know you. Stop touching me." I hightailed it to my car. I think I could have been a lot smoother with my response, but I was caught so off-guard by her blatant invasion of my personal space, that I was flustered.


If you were in that situation, what would you have done?

Nox, I feel your pain baby!!! OMG....Grrrrrr!!!!
I have waist length hair and I do get a lot of compliments on it because I take really good care of my hair....its my best asset. No matter how fat and ugly I get or feel my hair has always been there for me...lol. I cannot stand when people (strangers) feel that they can just come up to me and pet me like I am some kind of animal. Keep your freakin hands to yourself!!! Grrrrrrrr!!!!

It doesn't so much bother me if its a friend or family member, but when its somebody I don't know it makes me feel so uncomfortable. I can't stand it and often make sure they know I don't like them touching me..

Nox, (and I mean this with all seriousness) you shoulda punched her in her muh phuckin throat!

A friend of my nieces weave-checked me at my kitchen table one time. I had already drew back to punch her, but JESUS grabbed my hand long enough for me to remember that she was only 13.

I basically would have politely told her to get out of my personal space. But I don't have hair that is my crowning glory.

When it finally happens, you may not feel that way anymore. When it's with children, that is totally different. But with grown adults, you might feel as if it were a real invasion of your personal space and feel a bit threatened by it, especially if they make it seem like you're a zoo attraction.

LOL @ *muh phuckin* and *Jesus*. You gotta watch those youngins these days, they get saucy and try to slip hands where they shouldn't.

This is a good suggestion, thank you. I am going to try and use that next time instead of "I don't know you. Stop touching me." It's not very lady-like at all, it just came out sort of reflexively.

I've never had it happen. I've had people comment on my long hair. Its at my hips now but never touch it. I don't think I would like it. I have serious issues with my space.

I have realy long and thick hair, but no one has really came up and just started touching. I have had many of my female co-workers ask if they could touch it, and I've had creepy older men tell me tht they love my hair and what not. But none of that really bothers me.

It probaly would botherme if someone touched it w/out asking. I do't really like my hair touched in th first place.

OMG! Don't say anymore about people going to the bathroom and not washing hands. I have already been traumatized once, and I have not fully been the same. Now I don't trust anybody with their hands, and I don't like to shake 'em either. Yuck!
Hair is one of those things that kinda hangs onto bacteria, and it can get on your face, in your mouth and food, and eyes and cause infections and pimples. Horrible horrible.

lol.. I think different cultures have different levels of what is considered personal space, like different measurements. It totally freaks me out when people get in my space. Like wtf man, you can talk to me without getting so close.

I don't mind most people touching my hair, as in, a work colleague or a friend or family member, but a random stranger?! WTF man! get the hell off me! I'd assume they were going to steal my bag or something! why else would you touch a stranger! ah!

Yep!

When I go to other countries, I try to mimic what everybody else does in terms of measuring personal space. The thing is, this person kinda violated the rules of decency immediately. Coming up from behind a person is not a good element of surprise if you're a complete stranger. Nor is putting your fist near someone's head. All I can say was it creeped me out.
