Pulled Ponytail

April 12, 2008

Dear Abby:

Why do people think it’s OK to go up to someone with long hair in a ponytail and pull it? I am growing hair for Locks of Love. It makes me furious when people come up and jerk it. Not only is is painful, but isn’t it a form of assault? What would be an appropriate response?


Dear Hair Today:

Pulling someone’s ponytail is a childish impulse, and yes, it is a form of assault–but probably not prosecutable. The proper response is, “Ouch! Don’t do that again. It hurts!”
