Oh, my, yes. The hair, the makeup, the nails... The amount of time and money I spent on cosmetics and hair care products and so on is pretty absurd.
I would be late for school or an appointment or work because I could NOT be seen without my makeup on! I remember more than one occasion where I sat in my car doing my face as the bell was ringing and I knew I was going to get a demerit, etc. I seem to recall I eventually got suspended for a day because of too many tardy slips (I never understood that one; if you screw up, you get a day off? WTF?). Not all of those tardy slips were due to the "gotta have the makeup on" thing, but some of them certainly were.
I'm much better now, thank goodness.
