15 Things Girls With Long Hair Deal WIth

15 Things Girls With Long Hair Deal WIth

because sometimes the struggle is real with long hair

I’ve had long hair my entire life (except that one time in the fourth grade I chopped it all off and instantly regretted it). I absolutely love having long hair, but it definitely comes with some struggles. Here is just a handful of the daily struggle that comes along with having long hair.

1. Wind destroying your hair

This is long hairs worst enemy. I don’t know what kind of reality models live in with their long hair blowing beautifully in the wind, but my hair in the wind looks like I got attacked by a bird trying to build a nest on my head.

2. Hair ties constantly breaking

When you want a hair tie seventy-five percent of the time you don’t have it, and when you do have it, it ends up breaking while you attempt to pull up your hair.

3. Buns are impossible

Not only will the hair tie most likely break (see #2), your bun will look like some kind weird mess a top your head.

4. Hair getting on everything

I’ve had boyfriends tell me they’ve found my hair on a couch at their parents house which I hadn’t been to in like over a month.

5. Brushing your hair is a process

Getting all the knots out of your hair is a struggle, plus if you were in the wind then you are going to have a real good time (and by real good time I mean nearly crying trying to get a comb through your hair).



6. Helmets, and hats are also long hairs enemy

Those commercials where the girls take off a motorcycle helmet and their hair looks flawless must come from the same planet as the models with their hair blowing beautifully in the wind.

7. Doing any kind of hairstyle takes forever.

Curling my hair usually results in it falling flat before I even finish the second half of my head.

8. Shower drains clogging

My shower drain back at home does not stand a chance (considering my twin and I both have really long hair it inevitable gets clogged every six months or so).


9. Panicking at the amount of hair that falls off your head

I ran my hands through my hair the other day and ended up with a palm full of hair (after a solid five minutes of panicking I decided its just long hair problems).

10. Butt crack hairs

This may be a little to much information for some of you but seriously the amount of hair I find in my butt crack while showering is not okay.

11. Having your hair get stuck in lipstick

Fresh lipstick will inevitably be ruined by your hair getting stuck in it.


12. Getting Whipped by your Ponytail

Running with a ponytail will whip you in the face and you can’t put into a bun so you are kind of just stuck.

13. Hair getting stuck in your jacket zipper

Every time you zip your jacket you will rip out half your hair guaranteed.

14. Rolling your hair up in the window

This needs no more explanation.

15. When people ask why you don’t just cut your hair if it’s so troublesome

Because my hair is beautiful, and I’d look like a fool with short hair (no shade against people with short hair, but I look terrible with short hair). If I could pull of short hair I totally would.

Almost 100 Percent Of What Servers Say Earning Your 20 Percent Tip Is BS

Here it is.... the truth.

So, if you don’t know, I am a waitress.

I deal with, so many different types of people and I have learned how to handle each kind of person.

I have had so many people that make my day a little brighter and then there are always those people that can easily bring me down.

No matter what, I always keep a smile on my face and give the customers the best service possible.

But I am ready to unleash all the thoughts I have built up for some of these customers.

So here it is, what servers want to actually say to you.

When I first walk up to the table and introduce myself:

What I say: Hello! My name is Maddie I am going to be taking care of you, can I start you off with anything else to drink other than water? Any appetizers?

What I want to say: Hi my dudes, let’s get this over with, c’mon what do you want to drink. Get a bottle of wine or something expensive.

When a customer asks me what exactly is on tap, or want to know every single kind of wine we have and what they all taste like:

What I say: *grabs drink list OFF THE TABLE IN FRONT OF THEM* here you are, I have a hard time remembering some of the drafts because we have newly featured ones all the time. Also, I can get you a wine recommendation if you would like.

What I want to say: Uh hello, the list is right in FREAKING FRONT OF YOU!!!!!!! Look at the list, and then ask me questions! K BYE.

When I come back with drinks and they ask me if I am going to bring out rolls:

What I say: Yeah, I can bring out some rolls! Would you like any appetizers or anything? Were we ready to order dinner?

What I want to say: *laughing* uhhhh you have been sitting here for a good three minutes please wait until I set your vodka soda down before asking about some crusty bread Tina. Thanks bye.

When a customer asks me what sides we have:

What I say: All of our sides are at the bottom of the menu, and we have mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, fries, mac and cheese, onion rings, etc.

What I want to say: READ THE MENU. THEN ASK QUESTIONS. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I bring out the rare steak the customer ordered and they complain:

What I say: I can take it back to the kitchen and we will get it fixed right away!

What I want to say: ARE YOU JOKING. If you didn’t want it mooing and running around your plate then you shouldn’t have ordered it rare!!!!!!! CMON!!!

When I bring out the bills and a customer jokes around and says "I thought you were paying!?":

What I say: *laughs and walks away*

What I want to say: HAHAHA YOU THOUGHT. ME? PAY? After making $3 an hour plus your sh*tty tip. Yeah right.

When a customer asks me if the tip is included:

What I say: No, it is not, you have to include that when you sign the slip! Thank you!

What I want to say: ……..are.you.joking? *starts screaming*

When I go the table for the last time and say goodbye:

What I say: Thank you so much for coming in, have a great night! Come see us again!

What I want to say: Alright get to moving, I want to go home. I hope you tipped me good, seeeeee yaaaa. Peace out my dudes.

So there it all is. I laid it all out there.

Those are just a few things that I want to say to servers but instead I keep a smile on my face and stay kind and nice. It takes A LOT of work to maintain a nice personality and put up with the handful of people that come through the restaurant I work at.

So there you all go, how I truly feel and what I want to say to you.

P.S. - I am really sorry if I have ever served you before. Lol. Don't take it personally. :)
