I ordered lunch from the little favorite place up the road from me where the delivery guy and I have become fairly friendly with each other.
Delivery Dude: Jeez, you certainly love your pasta, don’t you?
Me: Nah, I just love the feta with the different vegetarian options it comes with.
Delivery Dude: Mhhh, I wonder what else has feta at the shop …?

Delivery Dude: (BLANK STARE AND THEN GESTURES TO MY HAIR) Is it because of the … (POINTS AGAIN)
Me: Totally not getting and then just as I ask, it hits me! Dude, thinks I am Rastafarian because I have dreadlocks and don’t eat meat.
Must say this is the second time someone ever thought this was more than a hairstyle for me. First time, I got offered Weed after someone said to me “Hey Rasta?” Jeez guys, this is just a hair style NOT a lifestyle!
