I was really awkward the first few times I went to get a haircut by myself. When I was a kid my mom would always take me and she also did all the talking. One day I was old enough to drive and needed a haircut so I went there myself. As I sat in the waiting area It dawned on me that I didn’t really know what to ask for.
“So uh… kind of what I look like now.. except shorter?”
I figured the guy could just sort of reverse engineer it, but then he started asking me specifics in inches and I was totally lost.
