My wife cuts my hair as she has done for many years, and I have to say that I’m always grateful for her efforts. A long time ago I bought one of those Remington head trimmers, similar to the ones you see in your local barbershop. You plug it in, fit the required plastic height cutter and away you go. Simples!
I usually select the number 4 setting which trims nicely and leaves me with a decent amount of hair. You can use it without any of the fittings and the trimmer will shave your head of all hair. For some reason, and I have no idea why, I forgot to fit the number 4 adapter, effectively leaving the shaver on its ‘scalping‘ setting! My wife didn’t notice either, and to be honest, there’s no reason why she should, as I always set it up. You can guess what happened next.
Yep. I got a fully shaved strip of hair, as can be seen in the photograph. What to do now? I could have just had the lot shaved, but I didn’t want that. So, I asked the wife to put the number 4 cutter on and she finished the job. I looked a right plonker when it was finished. It’s a good job I haven’t got to leave the house much over the next week, otherwise, hats would have been the order of the day.
My wife posted the story on Facebook and she has never had so many likes or comments in all her time on there. All of them poking fun at me. I don’t mind, it was all an accident, and if I’m honest, it is something to laugh about, albeit at my expense. Well, if you can’t laugh at yourself, then what can you laugh at?
I made a video about the mishap and posted it on Youtube.
