Hi all.
Have any of you longer-term dreadheads noticed this trend in the comments you get from folks?

Lately, mine have been going like this:

Person On Street: Hey, how long have you been growing those dreads?
Me: About 14 years.
POS: Wow. *shaking head* I tried growing them, but I didn't think it'd work, so I cut it all off.
Me: *vague grin, wondering what I'm supposed to say to this* I see. Well, have a good day.

Now, don't get me wrong--I'm fine with comments on my hair, and I'm used to it--but I'm never really sure what to say after they give me their particular personal stories about their hair. I usually just try to be polite and friendly... and get away from them if possible.
