Okay, so today I was given an ultimatum.


My dad is in the service, and is going to be called to Iraq in the winter. He leaves in late September, and is gone for a year. He leaves first for training in California, then he gets a few days home before he goes overseas. Today, he approaches me and says "When I come back in November on leave, your hair is going to get cut it collar length". No warnings, nothing. My hair as of now is about to my shoulder blade. I hate to be an angsty stereotypical teenager, but this is total bull$hit. I front a 80's style thrash band and they are gonna be pissed. Plus, its my decision, this isn't the damn 1950's anymore.

So, I'm planning on doing something to get out of it while he's here, any suggestions?

Why would guys in your band care about your hair length? That's so pathetic.

Also, if you do end up cutting your hair, Muhammed has short hair.

No but seriously.. either reason with him (state that it's your hair and you'll do what you want with it.. and that it shouldn't bother him that much) or simply just not cut your hair.

Dude, learn more about your country not about what you hear on tv or read in magazines, the media likes to feed retards like you out of a trough and you enjoy it.

There's no shame in a collar length hair cut.

an "80's style trash band" that isn't willing to move with the times is nothing but a cover band. You'll have an easier time managing your hair, you look neater, you'll get more respect/attnetion from people who used to treat you like trash.

Hair doesn't define you, and if a band is your only excuse for not cutting your hair, then I think you guys have to have a heart to heart. Are you honestly willing to say that you would rather defy your dad who is putting his life at risk so that you could be at the liberty to go online and complain about how you don't want to cut your hair?

Do you believe that your band is more important then your parents?


Honestly, I didn't want to be a dick about it, but I think you have some priorities to straighten out with yourself.

okay, maybe not "pissed". But we were trying to do like a local novelty 80s thrash thing, and they're gonna be disappointing.

Tell him if he makes you cut it that you'll enlist in the army first chance instead of going to college? I don't know if he'd like that one or not, depending on his military views it could be good or bad. Or just try blowing him off? I just ignore my parents when I can - mine is almost shoulder length, too. It's working so far
