I have not always worn a wig because I needed one. There was a time in the late 60's when women wore wigs to be fashionable.
One of my early banking jobs was on the check order desk. The customer's checks were
stored in the basement of the bank. If a customer needed a new book of their personalized checks, their order slip would be placed in a dumbwaiter tray and lowered to the basement where Orlin would fill the order, place it in the dumbwaiter and raise it for me to give the customer their checks.
This particular day I had lowered the tray and had leaned a bit too far into the shaft. My head caught on the frame and knocked my wig into the basement. Orlin reached in for the check order and encountered a furry creature instead. He screamed like a girl which echoed into the shaft and thus sounded loudly throughout the bank lobby. Everyone turned toward the sound and saw me standing there, wig-less with my real hair tightly pincurled to my head. I still have nightmares about this and you can bet Orlin does too. LOL
