This question is directed at my bald friend and fellow Boarding Area blogger, Lee of Bald Thoughts.
Is it fair or foul to cut your hair in a hotel bathroom to spare yourself the trouble of the clean up?
In 2004, I rocked the wicked Ben Wallace fro to support my Detroit Pistons who won the championship that year and then blew it against the Spurs. Then they traded Chauncey…
In 2005, I started law school. In an attempt to save money, I used to grow out said fro and then cut it down to 3mm when it got out of hand. (You should see my driver license picture.) I repeated this process for sometime until I found it even more economical to cut my own hair. Twelve years later, I’m still using clippers and hoping that I did not miss a spot.
And now back to the ethical dilemma. The problem with cutting your own hair is the mess that it produces. I’ve tried devices to make it less messy but they do not work.
At a hotel, I take care to put a towel on the sink and attend to my business. I then wrap that towel up nicely and put it on the floor. I hope that housekeeping will pick up the care package and not have it go all over the place.
Fair or foul?
