Many plus size clothing stores stop at like a size 3X or 24 maybe 26, but if you’re a lil’ bit bigger, like me, you may feel like you’re outta luck. NOT SO! Lookit all these extra fantastical websites I found that offer extended plus size clothing.

A fellow brother in my fraternity gave me a strange look in the middle of our conversation and I asked her what was wrong.
Her: Oh I really like your hair! Me: Thanks! Her: So how long are you gonna keep it like that? Me: I don’t know, probably a while. Her: But what are you gonna do about jobs? Me: What do you mean? Her: I mean, its cute, and its all nubian princess like, but you should probably take it out for interviews and stuff. Me: Why would I do that? Her: Um, its just not really professional Me: Well I have time to decide what I want to do about that and i can do more things than just wear it down. Her: Ok but if it was me I would just take it down, you know, just to be safe. But its really pretty tho. Me: *rolls eyes, walks away*
Ugh. Speaking as an HR professional with a big bushy fro, I don’t care what your hair looks like as long as you can do the job.
