Please oh please don't cut my ears off

I got my hair cut this week.

My "stylist" was taking over for another stylist who had to go to the hospital.

Me: Why did she have to go to the hospital?

Stylist: Because she got a hair in her eye and scratched her cornea. She has a patch over her eye and can't take it off for 72 hours.

Me: Wow. I didn't know being a stylist was so dangerous.

Stylist: I know of at least three girls who have scratched their corneas in the last five years.

Me: That's terrible.

Stylist: You know what's terrible? I cut off my knuckle with the shears.

(She then proceeded to show me where she had sliced her knuckle off with the scissors. She had nine regular knuckles and one smooth, scarred knuckle.)

Stylist: These shears are pretty sharp.

    I think that goes under TMI. Yikes!

  2. I think some hairstylists use terror as a way to increase their tips.

  3. I'm going to be more careful next time I get my hair cut - I didn't realize it could be so dangerous!!
