My piercings!!! wahoo!!! /sarcasm Soooo, I work for a large bank. I don't even work for a branch. My step father actually works for the same company but higher up and at a different location. (For reference, I'm 23, so it's not a daddy got me my job situation. I applied and went through the interviews without mentioning him at all.) I work in an office, with no customers. And one of the higher ups at my location was on a training trip for the past 2 weeks with my step-father. And he gave a "friendly warning" to him that some of the managers at my location have been talking and I may be getting laid off because of my piercings. Specifically my nape. I take out both my eye brow piercings every day during work hours, and leave in the 2 in my tongue (that most don't know about unless i've told them) and I leave my nape in. Due to clothing restrictions, it is only visible on fridays. So my only visible piercing one day a friggin week may be getting me the boot. I can't decide if I'm upset or pissed off. I'm half tempted to speak with someone in HR now, prior to anything happening. But I'm really curious what excuse they would use to fire me, since they can't do it for having piercings. I mean hell, I've been with the company for a year now, and not one word has been said to me in that time. My options are to attempt to transfer and hope that I can get into a better area in the bank that won't hold piercings against me. Or just leave the bank. because I REALLY don't want to resort to taking out my nape just for some bullshit like this. Any thoughts on how I should handle this? I know this post was more me venting... But fuck.. I'm pretty bothered by this.
