Dear The Man

Today I plan to steal a bit of time from my busy day so I can get my haircut. After all, you never know who's going to be on the other end of the phone when it rings.

Funny, someone was just telling me about their boss who used to say, "My hair grows on company time, so I'm going to get it cut on company time."

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Wow, your phone rings? I've got to get me one of those.

Authors almost never call me at work, and I prefer it that way. Whenever I pick up the phone and it's work-related, I'm always just a teensy bit irritated that the inconsiderate yob on the other end of the line didn't just email me.

Beth said...

I need a haircut. May I tag along?

Chancelucky said...

So will we be seeing the before and after photos?

Flannery Alden said...

Where does this haircut fall on the spectrum between a Great Cuts experience or a four hour spa experience?

Zed said...

Carpe diem!!

And need I remind you that your mother instructed you at the recent family gathering to "Always look your best, Dale."

Jill said...

I could do the haircut!!!

X. Dell said...

Remind me never to get on the phone with you. I'm paranoid enough as it is.

if you really want to stick it to the man, save some of your hair clippings and drop them down his shirt when he's not looking....

that'll show'm

Creepy said...

Or you can get a Brazilian on company time, that's REALLY sticking it to 'the Man'.

BeckEye said...

Maybe you could get the finance dept. to approve an office Flowbee, and then someone could suck-cut your hair while you work.

Flat tops never go out of style, assuming you're in the U.S. military or need to be laughed at more often.

I once purchased a set of hair trimmers that came with a video proclaiming the flat top "timeless." It was a different time then.

Sheer genius.

Coaster Punchman said...

Are picture phones free in Canada?

Bluez said...

The most flattering comments on your hair come the day before you're scheduled to have it cut

Dale said...

An excellent motto although I never say it too loudly Tenacious S. I want to be able to continue to afford them.

I've been asking for an unlisted number at work for years Barbara, nobody hears me.

It's very inconvenient to be saddled with work issues when you're doing other things at the office Deadspot. Pesky humans.

It's a bit late now but I'll go with you and watch and provide commentary Beth.

No, we will not, Chancelucky.

It falls in the $1.46 per minute @ 15 minutes class of haircuts Flannery.

I'd like someone to sieze my mother Zed and let me cut her hair, perhaps with her old pinking shears for an exciting new do.

No you couldn't, Jill.

I can see you right now X. Dell. Why would you wear that?

But then what would I glue to my back for my super sexy summer look at the water park Anandamide?

The cries would be heard all over the continent Creepy. You first.

Well, a lot of people already suck there Beckeye, how much could a couple of attachments be?

I've heard a good shag never goes out of style either Pistols at Dawn.

Shear, easy for you to say Tumuli.

Picture me Coaster Punchman, and then picture me again with shorter hair. That's free!

Should you not then cancel Bluez?

T said...

Too many people put too much emphasis on haircuts. Of course, I don't get one unless I can no longer eat because of a hairball obstruction.

Dale said...

You have hairy palms too don't you T?

T said...

Only in my spare time...

Dale said...

Keep yourself busy T, it's for the best.
