I Know I Have Pink Hair But...

“Your hair looks cool.”
We both walk on pleasantly and continue with our days.

“I really like your hair.”
I realize you are blocking my exit from the elevator and I smile awkwardly as I push by, way too close for comfort.

One of these is a friendly interaction.

One of them is creepy and threatening.

Is it really that difficult to know the difference?

The problem is, I want to be friendly and neighborly. I like living in a building where people say, “Hi,” when we pass in the halls. Just don’t corner people in the elevator. This shouldn’t even have to be said.
