Hair = Scare?

So my post today is mostly a little story from where I work...

I am a waitress in a local (very good!) restaurant. I work part-time in order to balance my studies. And, as you may well know, I am an alternative sort of person :)

At the moment, I have brown, pink and red hair ♥

My boss and managers have no problems with this, which is great. They even place bets on what colour I will go next (previous colours have been green, blue, violet, and pink)! The reaction from most of the customers is great too, some saying they really love it, others asking how long it takes to do!

Yet, the other day, I had a really horrid person/customer ask me: "Don't you think you should be in a cartoon? You shouldn't work here, your hair colour makes me feel sick".

This obviously really upset me, I love my hair and have never had such a nasty comment - I don't have a thick skin when it comes to comments like this and I do take it to heart. After I got over the upset, it got me thinking several points:

1 - Would that customer ever remark on the colour of someones' skin?
2 - Would that customer ever say something to a bald person?
3 - How would they like it if someone commented on their hair/skin/teeth/clothes?

Eventually I figured that because the person was quite old, they might not have been around alternative people before, or perhaps they were just having a bad day - but it still doesn't give them the right to be so horrible!

So, I was just wondering... Have any other GothicDivinities had any such negative comments? How do you deal with them? What is your opinions on such people?
