I went into the barber shop (alright, technically they are "stylists," but who knows the difference?). I had my blue Brooks Brothers blazer on. My hair was a bit long. I said "cut it short." This barber (alright "stylist") has cut my hair several times before and has always done a solid job.
So after a good hunk of my hair is gone, she asks "so you want it spiked and with yellow streaks right?" I about had a stroke. She really meant it. I suppose because when folks wearing Brooks Brothers jackets come in asking for "short," they obviously want spikes and yellow streaks.
