In what would be deemed as a painful situation, a man has taken to popular Nigerian online forum, Nairaland to share his experience with a new barber in his neighborhood.
According to the man, he was so desperate to have a hair cut and had to stop by at this new shop, only to find a young barber.
He proceeded to have the haircut, but what started as a medium for the new barber to prove his worth, ended as a sorrowful tale.
Read his post:
So I went to this shop in my new hood to cut my hair. I had gone 5 weeks without a haircut and was already looking like a Wild animal.
Met the young barber and my intuition rang the alarm bells: he looks like an apprentice!!
I ignored the warnings and sat on the swivel chair. I desperately needed a haircut!
Afro punk, I told him, and proceeded to instruct him on how I love it. Has to be bespoke!.
He nodded in affirmation, grabbed the clipper and gave me a shocker…..
When I saw his grasp of the clipper — feeble and weak, and his strokes, lacking finesse and the dexterity of a professional barber — I knew I was in for trouble.
15 mins later and he had already given me a hair cut I never knew existed.
He finished and I was still looking like a Wild Animal; a domesticated wild Animal.
He looked at me and I could see guilt written all over his face. He knows.
I wasn’t mad at him. Baby steps he was taking. One day, he’ll become a pro.
But will I go back to his shop? Not in this life.
