Watercooler Talk
MARION, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts delivery driver growing his hair out for charity said he has been told by his employer to cut it. Brad Siscoe, a contractor employee who makes deliveries for FedEx Ground, said Monday his employer wants him to cut his "hockey" hair, put it in a ponytail or tuck it under a hat.

But Siscoe said his hair is too short for a ponytail and can't fit in a cap. Siscoe said he's growing out his hair for the charity Locks of Love - a group that provides hairpieces for disadvantaged children undergoing medical treatments.

FedEx spokesman Perry Colosimo said the company has a history of supporting charitable causes and the issue is between an independent contractor and his employee.
