I have an employee who is suffering a great deal of anxiety over my getting sisterlocked.
Terri (not her real name) has subtley and not so subtley suggested, in a myriad of way, that I get "individuals," or twists, or ANYTHING other than...[dread and horror!]...LOCS!!!!
She is sooooo transparent. Her anxiety over her job security, in the event that my hair scares all of the patients away, is pretty intense.
The office is small and we are fairly close knit and open with each other, but I hope she has the good sense to keep any additional suggestions to herself.
