A stranger hates my eyebrows



Yesterday while waiting in line at a gas station, a man started to make small talk with me. He turned out to be the owner of a nearby barbershop. Our conversation went like this:

Him: Who does your eyebrows?

Me: (Thinking he thought they looked nice.) Well, you know, I just pluck them myself.

Him: You should stop by my shop.

Me: (Shamefaced.)

Okay, so I've never had my eyebrows threaded or even waxed. But I didn't think they were horrendous enough to warrant a stranger's comments. It's not like I had toilet paper stuck to my shoe. I told myself the guy just wanted to drum up business for his barbershop.

Divas, has a stranger ever criticized your grooming/hair/makeup/outfit? How did you react?
