There is a new discount Barbershop (if the term is not yet antiquated) in Alliston, Great Clips has opened their door in the Wal-Mart on the East End of town.
They offered a grand-opening special of $4.99 haircuts (less than half price). Now I have had enough of my hair, or rather, lack of it, and am tired of it blowing in the slightest breeze. I do not put "product" in my hair, really, not even when I had some...
I am waiting for a friend of mine (a hairdresser currently living in Calgary) to move in to town later this summer, and have tried several places out lately, and had decided to give the new kids a try today. I told my wife that, at the worst, it will grow back ;-)
I had decided to try an ultra-short haircut to save time and effort in the mornings.
When I went to pay for the cut, it was so little, less than half the price I would normally pay, that I decided to pay for the next cut (plus leave a tip for both cuts). I left before I saw who would be the recipient, so I am not sure of their reaction.
Will they decide to "pay it forward", or just relish in being the beneficiary of a random good deed.
I have said it before, but I will repeat myself... sometimes I feel that I am the real beneficiary of actions like these, when I consider how it makes me feel for a while.
