Rosemadder, Why would your boss think it would matter how you wear your hair?

I work in a dental office and my hair can look pretty wild. I told my dr that I wanted to have a nose piercing and he said he wouldn't allow it. Don't you love that. He signs my paychecks so I guess he owns me. I told him I didn't think the patients would notice it anymore than my hair. He then told me HE personally didn't like piercings or tattoos. OK, daddy. Really not ok. I'm going to do it and he can just fire my ass. I know he won't because I've made changes to his office and we are bringing in more money, even in this economy.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
