"Bald Brothers, Do you miss the Barbershop? Why?" Wed Jun-12-19 02:41 PM by Case_One
I've been bald since about 2003 and I can't front, I miss the barbershop. I miss conversations, the jokes, the arguments, the discounts on stuff in a large black duffle bag, the hot plates of food that were sold every so often. I miss the smell and energy of getting into a clean car with a fresh cut. I miss cutting in line because I had it like that (tip the barber 1 $50 every now and then and you never had to wait).
But I don't miss having to sit all day when your barber is in a funky mood or want to talk to everyone because he needed the attention. I don't miss the accidental nuts on my hand BS. I don't miss having my line jacked on occasion when your barber is doing the most for no reason - my bad - SMH. I dang sure don't miss having to use another barber in the same shop because my barber wasn't in that day. I don't miss having to find another barber because the one I had decided to move WAAAAAAY OUT or leave without telling the clinets where his new shop was.

I didn't dislike it, but sometimes that waiting cost me half a day. I just don't have the time.
my barber was fantastic. meticulous with the blades, which translates into slow af lol. and he was a talker.
I take my son to a barber tho. these shops now are more like parlors or salons. not a bad thing at all. they don't talk as much with everybody, but I think part of that is phones. but guests also sit kinda far away from the barbers. so the only real interaction is when you're sitting in the chair or me paying for my son.
