I got a job helping out with catering here at school yesterday and it got me thinking. Are we not actually better suited to jobs in food service because of our dreads? I mean, we don't shed hair all over the place. It's all contained. It's like a built-in hair net!
It'd be an argument to use on a potential employer, anyway.
If I ever have a restaurant, I will only employ people with dreads and people with shaved heads. "Oh, hair in your soup, you say? Well, it doesn't belong to any of my employees. Look at them!" :)
