I got my nose pierced. In my culture / religion / tradition its normal to have it done. It’s as common and accepted as ear piercings are. Even my nan has it.
The problem is, I didn’t think ahead. I didn’t think that may be it would be considered unprofessional in the work environment. Although I love it to bits, I’m faced with a decision to remove it or put a tiny plaster over it which will look really stupid but at least I won’t get an infection for removing it so early.
I’m starting a new job tomorrow but it’s for three weeks (it is not technically new I’ve worked there a year ago on a contract).
I just messaged my manager to ask about the policy. I told her I would be willing to remove it or cover it with a plaster. I know she must think I’m stupid for asking such a stupid q.
Hmm… I’m not sure what I’m really asking here, I just wanted to share my frustration.
