What do you do when you get a f***in haircut--and it's f***in awful??

    Everyday is a bad hair day for me. Today is a Titanic meets the Hindenberg meets hunting with Dick Cheney bad hair day.

    I finally listened to my wife and went to get a fucking haircut. It's not that long, but we're going to see family in the morning so I may as well look neat, right?

    So I went to a chain place...let's call it Supercuts, because that's the name of it. I know, I know: My first mistake. But when you have crappy hair like me, there's only so much you can do with it. So I've found a haircut I like and my wife likes at Supercuts.

    I get in there and the woman asks what I want. I say the number 2 (how appropriate), which is very short, but not buzzed, above the ears and in the back and a little longer on top. She says fine. She goes to work and I go to work reading GQ.

    Damn that Keith Olbermann Q&A and the feature on the PerezHilton.com guy, because if they weren't so interesting I might have noticed the train wreck occuring atop my head. She finally says "How's that?" and I kid you not: When I looked up, I got dizzy. It was awful, just awful. It's like a bowlcut times 10. I look like a wanna-be hipster circa 1994. I've got this mop of hair on top and ALMOST NOTHING around the ears and in the back.

    It's so awful. I stammered out "Uhh a little more off the top please" as I tried to think of how quick I could get home to get a hat before I went to play cards. I probably should have said something to her, something along the lines of "You should get 5 to 10 for this act of violence," but what's the use of bitching to a hairdresser about a haircut? She's not going to pull the hair off the floor and re-apply it.

    I got out of there as fast as I could and got on the phone with my wife. I tell her I'm wearing a hat for the next several months. She says it can't be that bad (she's at her grandmother's house tonight) and I say, oh yes, it can. She says her hairdresser is great and can do wonders with anything so we'll go see her next week. I say she better be the Dr. House of hairdressers, because this is just fucking awful. I also say this wouldn't happen if, you know, I WAS ALLOWED TO KEEP MY HAIR THE LENGTH I WANTED!!!! That, predictably, did not go over well.

    So that's where I am: Sporting a hat that is now permanently affixed to my head. Never have I wished for male pattern baldness like I do right now.

    And fuckabuncha Supercuts. More like BludgeonedCuts.

    Anyone else ever been violated at the hairdresser? How long until I can show my face again?

    Get it all cut off. I've gone the better part of a decade never having to comb my hair. It's great.

    You mean that's not what you normally look like?

    No way. I don't like how I look with really short hair, I'm not going to shave it.

    Though I'm thinking I may not have a choice.

    Edit: No, I usually look like this:


    :D :D ;D ;D

    I'd almost rather look like that than this.

    Worse. Much worse. Think a lot less around the ears worse.

    I'd gladly accept that Oasis dude's hair right now.

    This thread is cracking me up. At least your haircut's bringing joy to someone. :)

    In a morbid way, I can't wait to see my wife tomorrow. She's going to be shocked at how bad this is.

    Is Modells closing out the now-defunct Diamondbacks caps?

    Ha. Who knows? I may ask my wife to stop there during her Black Friday shopping.
