Chef Blamed for Every Hair in the Food Incident at Work, But Her Bold Decision Makes Her Boss Think Twice Before Pointing Any More Fingers.

The Original Poster (OP) is frustrated by her boss’s baseless accusations of being responsible for black hairs found in customers’ food. So the woman devises a bold plan to dye her hair to prove her innocence and embarrass her boss. 

She Works at a Sandwich Shop

The OP worked at a sandwich shop alongside several women with long dark hair. The other women were all of the same ethnicity and had similar long-length black hair themselves.

Customers occasionally complained about finding long black hair in their food. Each time this happened, the OP’s boss would unfairly blame her without any investigation. The protagonist always wore their hair up and netted to prevent such incidents.

The Unfair Accusations

The OP grew increasingly frustrated with being blamed for the hair in the food. Despite taking precautions, the boss continued to accuse her. She felt that because she was of a different race than her boss and the other women, she was being unfairly discriminated against in the work environment.

She decided she needed to stand up to her boss. She thought about how she could simultaneously prove her boss wrong and stand up for herself. This led her to come up with a clever plan.

In an attempt to avoid further blame, the OP decided to dye her hair blue. She hoped this would put an end to the accusations, and she was determined to prove her innocence.

As expected, another customer eventually found a long black hair in their food. The protagonist’s boss immediately jumped to blame her once again. However, this time the protagonist was ready with a witty response.

The protagonist uncovered her hair cover to point out that it couldn’t be her hair because her hair was now blue. She was clearly no longer the source of the problem. The boss’s reaction was priceless.

Now that the protagonist was no longer being blamed, the boss had to investigate the real source of the problem. This led to closer scrutiny of the other employees. The sandwich shop’s environment began to change.
