I hate going to get a haircut. It’s such a waste of time on a precious Saturday. Unfortunately it’s something you just have to bite the bullet and take care of.
After many decades of going to commercial “Stylists” like Supercuts and Great Clips I discovered a more traditional style Barbershop not too far from my house. I was a little disappointed to see it run by women but they knew all the old fashioned techniques so I adopted the place.
Saturday is the only time I have free so the last few times I went there including today, almost all the waiting chairs were full of men who were either bald or obviously in no need of a haircut. I stood there with my jaw agape as I tried to understand why all those people not needing a haircut were even there. With around 10 people waiting and two people working it was obvious that I would spend all day there and lose my Saturday.
I turned and walked out, dejected. I guess it is time for the old standby. I pulled out my phone and opened the Great Clips app and “checked in”. It took me about 10 minutes to get there and I was glad that I checked in because their chairs were full too. Amazingly, as soon as I sat down, they called my name! Wooooo! There’s nothing better than jumping ahead of all the muggles. Hooray for check-in apps. Winning!
My haircut was subpar but adequate. I don’t really care much about my hair so I’m satisfied.
Somebody tell people who don’t need haircuts that they don’t need to go the barbershop. I was waking in with an unruly mop so I was justified. It has been a common mind-boggle of mine every time I go to get a haircut to see people who look like they just got a haircut clogging up the waiting room. This planet is so strange. I’ll never understand the Humans.
