Barbers, beauticians and Bartenders have a lot of experience in human nature and behavior. I have long thought the high paid beauticians for celebrities and movie stars know a lot of psychology and understanding of human nature. Some hair doo’s worn by ‘name brand’ folks show they have believed a lot of ‘BS’ of how cool this Doo is! (As my military peers would say.)
People want to look their best and most women will gladly pay the beautician to fix their hair. Now mind you, I do not think ANY beautician has ever finished a hair doo that the owner doesn’t go home and ‘put their personal touch to it.’
But everyone knows that over the years beauticians, barbers and bartenders have become confidants. They listen and sometimes give advice. There are times that advice is worth more than ‘professional’ advice.
I just read a story about Richard, who was stressed because he could not shake the idea that someone or something was under his bed. A friend of his at work knew a psychiatrist, and made the referral.
On the first visit Richard felt better about the whole thing but was told it would be a long process to completely clear up the fear. Six months minimum twice a week at $150 a session. “Think about it,”suggested the Doctor, “and let me know if you want me to work you into my schedule.”
A couple months later the doctor ran into Richard in the mall. “Good day Richard, have you given thought to using our services?”
“Hey Doc, to tell you the truth I don’t have a problem anymore.”
“Wow, that is great, did you see someone else?”
“Yes, my bartender.”
“Bartender?” the Doc asked puzzled.
“Yeah, I left your office and stopped by Billy’s Bar to think about it and told Bill the bartender my situation.”
“He suggested I cut the legs off my bed then no one could get under it. He also suggested I use the $7000+ I was going to pay you and buy another pickup, so I did. Cutting the legs off worked like a charm.”
The doctor fainted.
There are time common sense wins.
Do you have a favorite hair guy or bartender?
I love these old coupes.
