I have to wonder if there is anything I can do to look a little older (in a good way). You may wonder why I complain about this. It is just really frustrating not being taken seriously. Some recent examples: 1. I was applying for a position a while ago and the person interviewing me asked me how I got to the interview. I told him I drove. He was very surprised. "You can drive?" He thought I wasn't even 16. When he found out I'm married, he was completely shocked. 2. I was at my internship, sitting in my supervisor's office, working on a project with her. One of our co-workers came in the room and asked my supervisor, "What are you doing for l-u-n-c-h?" My supervisor asked her why she was spelling it out. She said, "Because there is a little rabbit with big ears in the room" and looked right at me (there was no one else in the room). 3. Wendel and I went to drop something off at a friend's house last week and their teenage son's friend answered the door. Our friend later told us that the kid told him, "There's a guy and his daughter at the door for you." I saw this same kid tonight at their house, and he said he was sorry for the misunderstanding "but with the way you wear your hair parted like that, you look like a little kid."
So...I am asking any who read this blog if there is anything you think I can do to look a bit older? I have an appointment to get my hair cut on Tuesday. Any specific cut that you think might help? Anything at all? Anyone?
