seriously.. this guy wasnt going for pity, he just couldnt help himself. normally when an old person wants to ask me about hair stuff, its because i clearly have a whole lot of it. gets old. but not here… he just wanted help. i had to grab one of the girls in the department because A: i dont know dick about hair care and B: i couldnt take another second of this poor man. as a 23 year old overly macho metalhead alpha male, im not ashamed to say that this really bummed me out. im normally the “people die, get over it” type, but this was too much. its been well over 12 hours and i cant shake it. my co-worked was able to help him and he rode away on his scooter with the same despondent attitude he approached me. he believes his wife is looking down on him and thinking he could use a hair cut. she cut his hair once a month for the last 30 years. guhhhhh. kuhhhhh. heart…. breaking…. call an ambulance, sadness overload.
