Toast Pwns Himself (self-pity Thread)

So today I decided to cut my hair as I hadn't done it in over 2 months and was becoming too shaggy. For the first time in my life, I chose to do it at 9 a.m., an hour when I tend to be half-asleep at the best of times. To make a long story short, I forgot to set my hair clipper to its usual max length. I pulled the machine set at 2 mm all across my skull and nearly died when I realized what I did. Having no choice really, I had to keep the setting and continued cutting, watching with horror the handfuls of my hair falling to the floor.

My head now looks like a dick with glasses. I haven't been this hairless since the Carter administration. My new neo-Nazi appearance is precisely what I didn't need now as I have an upcoming job interview and I need to re-negotiate a bank loan.  banghead 

I haven't felt this owned since the time my face was painted with indelible ink after a drinking binge at college.

Please share your stories of self-pwnage to make me feel a bit less stupid...

I keep my hair buzzed anyway, so I tend to avoid that particular problem, but make up for it when trimming my moustache. I can't grow a beard, but I've had a very full moustache since I was 18. About 3 times a year I don't pay attention to the trimmer setting and shave off half of it before I realize the problem. The only fix is to trim it down to peach fuzz. When I do, for some reason my upper lip seems to swell, and the pale skin under my nose that hasn't seen the full light of day in 25 years dominates my face for about a week.

As for short hair...I keep mine cropped short always. It's called low-to-no maintenance.

You'll be fine.

It may be an improvement , I have to say that the idea of hairy Toast is a bit offputting (but I am quite conservative with breakfast - you can serve me up any manner of revolting things late in the day just don't frighten me at breakfast )

My first flirtation with baldness was semi accidental ( a home colour job that went badly wrong , and tough luck those of you who think this post is useless without pics - I have destroyed them all !) but it kind of grew on my - bad choice of words though that may be - having said that November in Belgium is not the time to start experimenting with the exposure of unprecedented amounts of scalp

I once asked a barber for a crew cut (Militaerschnitt). Unfortunately the bloke was quite old and gave me a Wehrmacht special (longish on top, to be combed back with Brillcreame) and almost shaved along the sides from the tip of the ears down. It was great for a living history display a few weeks later (where I was in the role of a WW2 British soldier), since it was a fitting period haircut, but my colleagues asked if I didn't fancy to trim my moustache that it would just fit under the nose, you know, like a certain Austrian from Braunau.

i once died my hair copper in an attempt to go for a more auburn color. and while I was acutally able to pull off the copper look, it doesn't go to well with navy blue. I promptly became a brunette later that afternoon, before my LAX flight.

My barber just screwed me over to .. She forgot to change the clipper head and nailed me with a # 1 right in the front. Ended up shaving it all off, I look like my 2nd week in bootcamp , ya know when it kinda grows out a bit .. .. !! It was kinda funny , she felt so bad she almost cried , luckily for her I dont really care that much about it.

The second last time I went to the barber (that was in May if I recall correctly  Smile ), she was in such a bad mood, I was even happier than usual when I left her shop, not noticing that she did only half of her job: One side of my scalp was cut properly, the other one wasn't.

But it did help to brighten her day when I re-appeared the next morning.

Toast, did you shave your eyebrows as well? There is nothing to make a guy look like a complete t*sser than shaving his eyebrows off. (When I was living in Ireland, the neighbouring house was occupied by a group of South African and British contractors, who would get drunk almost every evening. If a guy passed out in the common sitting room, the others would play jokes on him, like shaving his eyebrows or cutting a swathe through his hair with a clipper. Since I rarely drink, and never to the level where I pass out, it never happened to me, but I have seen several "victims").
