I began to jot down out a submit a few weight upkeep behavior that I’ve discovered useful, however when this incident that I am about to share occurred, I simply HAD to submit this as an alternative! I will save the opposite for tomorrow.
Jerry has a gathering tomorrow for work, and it is form of a giant deal. He is been actually nervous about it, and he normally would not get nervous about these items. A whole lot of the “higher ups” in his firm will likely be there and he will be assembly loads of new folks.
A number of days in the past, he requested me if I might minimize his hair earlier than he goes, and I stated positive. Final evening, I suppose he needed to impress me (?) by slicing his personal hair. Everyone knows how that went not once–but TWICE–before. He used the clippers to chop his hair with a #8 (which leaves hair about one inch lengthy). After showering, he noticed some free hairs and grabbed the clippers to trim them.
He forgot to exchange the guard on the clippers, nonetheless, and commenced shaving with no guard in any respect. It solely took a second to comprehend what was occurring, however by then it was too late.
We laughed so laborious! Absolutely, it could be a giant lesson and he would by no means once more to neglect to place the guard on. Proper?
On Christmas day of 2020, Jerry determined once more to chop his personal hair. We’ll skip to the purpose. HE DID IT AGAIN. This time, in an much more conspicuous place on his head.
I used to be laughing so laborious I had tears streaming down my face and I insisted I take a video of him explaining the way it occurred. Once more. (The video is beneath)
We had been quarantined as a result of pandemic, so we took leisure wherever we may get it. And this was humorous! It’s just about assured that there’s NO CHANCE that he’d ever make that mistake once more. How may you not study from doing that two instances? First, I’d positively cease slicing my very own hair. And if I *did* minimize my very own hair, I’d triple test that the guard was on earlier than going wherever close to my scalp.
Final evening, I used to be within the bed room whereas Jerry was within the rest room and I heard the clippers operating. I nearly went in to ask if he needed me to chop his hair, however I figured he would have requested if he needed me to. I continued studying my e-book, and a short while later, I heard one thing (the clippers) fall to the ground and several other expletives popping out of Jerry’s mouth.
I questioned what he had dropped or damaged or no matter. Then the door flew open and he stood there within the doorway, trying pissed. With a bald stripe down the center of his head.
I attempted to maintain a straight face, however it lasted all of two seconds earlier than I burst out laughing. I could not assist it! That made Jerry chuckle, too. I couldn’t imagine this had occurred THREE TIMES.
We had a superb chuckle about it whereas I took the photographs that had been now frequent sufficient to name custom, after which Jerry had no option to however to shave the remainder of his head. If there’s one factor we each agree on, it is that he would not actually have the look to tug off a shaved head.
I really feel horrible that this occurred earlier than his assembly tomorrow. I advised him that he ought to simply make a joke about it from the very starting in order that he is not self-conscious of it. His bosses will most likely get a superb chuckle! He placed on his glasses, hoping that may distract considerably from his head, however… properly, he is simply acquired anticipate it to develop out.
For anybody considering of slicing their very own hair with clippers, Jerry has this recommendation: “Never let your guard down.”
