Bad Hair Day

What is it about holding a pair of scissors that makes someone become a cloth eared twat lacking the basic understanding of units of measurement? Oh yes, I got my hair cut today, can you tell?
All I wanted is half an inch (at the most) taken off my fringe and even less taken of the sides (leaving the hair over my ears), fairly specific, easy direction and surely nothing to offend the delicate sensibilities of your average hairdresser. So why did he take about an inch and a half off the fringe, top and sides!?! The length I had been cultivating gone in the blink of a cack handed idiots eye. Yeah, it looks okay and it’s still longish, and in a months time it’ll probably be back to the length I was liking but with a bit more sense and shape, but why must I wait a month after the jobs been done for it to look like it should have when I paid for the fucking thing?! Why do I have to look like a geek who’s atempting a trendy haircut just because the person who cut it thought they knew who I was better than me? When asking ‘are you going clubing tonight’ and hearing the reply ‘Nah, I’ll watch some Doctor Who videos and read some comics” you’d think Edward Fucking Scissorhands would realise I didn’t want some semi mod/punk McFly atempt at coolness. Where’s my Dave Grohl meets Jeremy Dyson hair gone!?
It’s no good, I’ll just have read some newspapers to track down the days worth of death, destruction and disaster to put my own woes into perspective - ie some people nearly have it as bad as me.

i've always been confused by how "a bit off the top and sides" translates to "yes please, i'd love it just how it is but with more of a resemblance to the current fashion cut..."

the last couple of times i went to my local chap me saying "it's too long at the back, i don't want a mullet" became "mmm, i love it much longer at the back, fashion mullets are da bomb". and it was still like that even after i may him trim it again, twice! honestly. still, the very idea of having to pay someone to cut bits off you is flawed to begin with; from that all else follows.

Well I was going to go to the hairdressers this week but you have put me off a tad.
I'll be extremly pissed if they hack my hair off when it's taken so long to get it this length.

I don't let anyone except Nic cut my hair... I'm that terrified of the hairdressers. And that's why O've hjad the same haircut for ages...

I had part of my left ear cut off when I had my hair cut as a child so I begin to panic and shake whenever anyone tries to do my hair... How it looks is the last thing on my mind.

You should do what I did, and in your twenties go bald. Highly recommended.

Dunno, going bald seems a bit drastic.... mind you I doubt I'll have any say in whether I do or not!
I've calmed down somewhat now and had the chance to unstyle some of the damage. Still wish it was longer, but it looks okay now. Not getting it cut for a good while now though.
