I have awesome hair as you can see. The question is, is it hair to die for.
The fact is, I’m sexy as hell. A recent Harvard study shows that I’m too sexy for this shirt. Well, it would if the government wasn’t actively suppressing such studies because of their concern for the madness and mayhem that would ensue as people began beating down my door.
I can’t help it that I was born this way. It’s tough even going to the grocery store with people staring, knowing they are either jealous or overwrought with lust. It’s painful for me to know those people will go home to average looking partners with less sexy hair – unlike my hair to die for – and have to live the rest of their lives knowing that their life experience will always be subpar.
It’s a burden I must live with.
Many people may think that my Samson-like hair is the source of all my sexiness. They might wonder if going to get a haircut will detract from all the awesomeness that is me. Is that why I don’t get my haircut?
The truth is much different than that. Even though I have hair to die for, I don’t want anyone to die for my hair.
It’s quite simple: the place I get my haircut services a lot of older clients. I work from home. I don’t really go out at this time – there is no need. Do I need to get my haircut? Is it just vanity or is it necessary?
For some, it may be important. For me, it’s not a necessity. I may have really sexy hair – like Gary Busey level sexy – but it’s not hair to die for.
Pay Your Workers
Does this mean I don’t pay the person who cuts my hair? No it doesn’t. Here’s why.
If I’m an employer, I need to pay my employees to the best of my ability even when they aren’t able to do the work needed due to situations like this. I need to do the same for the people I employ that don’t work as an employee. That means the people who cut my hair, etc.
Why? Because it’s what we do in a community. If you want to live by yourself out in the woods and not interact with people, go for it. If you live in a community, you treat people as you would want to be treated. If you employ people, you treat them as you would want to be treated.
Hair to Die For
I don’t want to have hair to die for. I don’t think any of us do. Except Bob, but to be fair, he’d be happy to have any hair at all.
We need to be thoughtful. What’s really important? Maybe we have the type of job that requires a haircut and style. They do exist. If so, be as respectful, safe, and thoughtful as possible and tip big.
And for the rest of us, is a haircut really that important? Is it worth possibly affecting someone’s life permanently? Can we maybe just forgo it for a bit? Do we have the means to pay anyway?
It’s one thing to have hair to die for. It’s another to ask other people to risk their lives and the lives of those they care about for our vanity.
Stay safe. Be wise. Be Kind. Treat others as you would want to be treated and help each other out. We’re all in this together.
This is why I love you. You are an incredible human with incredible hair. I too shall support my stylist and manicurist. Thanks for the inspiration.
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Laurenda. That means a lot.
You’ve always had great hair, even in our younger years I remember thinking wow, he has great hair. Lol
Great blog! Enjoy reading all of these. Great lessons.
lol. When I was younger I’m pretty sure it was just from the fact that you couldn’t look away from my hair because it was all over the place. I was kind of a cousin it with short hair.
