So since I've gotten my dreads two weeks ago, I've always worn them back at work to be a little more neat for the customers. Not a lot of people really comment on them, but today and elderly lady asked me to find something for her. When I found it, and reached down to get it for her, she said "I love you're hair, it's gorgeous." I thanked her for the comment, but it didn't really strike me as odd until later on in the night when I thought about it.
I never expected one of the nicest comments to come from an age group who are usually quite conservative.
Does anyone else get compliments from people you don't expect?
