So my job has decided we’re going to have a new “code of appearance” I haven’t seen said statement yet but apparently within the next couple weeks we are all going to have to adhere to it.
No tongue piercings at all.
Facial piercings are limited to one (eyebrow, lip or nose:no more than one)
Gauges have to be skin colored
Hair can only be natural color (no highlights or all over color)
Tattoos covering more than a certain amount of skin must be covered
Offensive tattoos must be covered
Thats just what I’ve been told of so far.
I have my tongue pierced, hair is not natural color and I have tattoos on each arm. I am not changing who I am a year after working there after THEY hired me this way.
Time to seriously start looking for a new job.
The discrimination against people that look “different” is astounding to me.
They want everyone to be these perfect cookie cutter people with no personality. I’m sick of it.
Look at the world around you. Its changing. It isn’t the 50s anymore.

"Be of service. You are taking your degree into a society dominated by concentrated poverty and a vulnerable middle class, a society where it is harder to pay for education, harder to find a job, harder to buy a house and harder to hold onto those things even if you manage to get them. You are entering adulthood during a period of mass incarceration and near constant war. There is a lot for you to do. Service is the rent you pay for the space you take up on the earth, and as a relatively privileged American you take up a lot of space. We are the most consuming, polluting, wasteful nation on earth. So your rent is steep. Pay it with service."

Is it weird that I kind of want a pen pal? Like an actual pen pal that will write me back and forth from somewhere in the UK or something like that? Randomness, I know! :-/
I have thought about it too
