“On first impressions do you think anyone would hire you?”
Counselor at a British job-center (government-run employment agency) to 23 year-old Hayley O’Neil, who has many tatoos and also 20 body piercings.  When Ms. O’Neil went to the center to get advice on finding a job, the advisor first asked her “Who would hire you looking like that?”  She left the center upset, and without any job interviews, and said “He talked to me as though I was just going through a phase in my life, but this is my lifestyle choice, and this is who I am.”
