Pat got a new "home barber kit" on Ebay to eliminate the inconvenience of having to go to the barber shop. Under duress, Kim was appointed the "home barber". We just finished our second haircutting session and Kim thought it went pretty well....just in time for Pat's big presentations to all of Microsoft's top customers in North America and Europe this week. Why don't you have a look for yourself. Please see the "nice haircut" first (symmetrical, close); and then, check out the "oops".
This is how it should look
Oops...Oh and I have a meeting with Jim Allchin in the morning...
Rookie error: Not replacing the "length guard" after shaving pat's neckline. The first pass-through was quite a shock.
Now, if you'll all please respond with an appropriate introduction for Pat's presentations this week. Something like "..Don't let your wife cut your hair when she's angry..." Remember, we want to disarm them with humor, not the insanity of a haircut gone horribly wrong.
The presentations start Tuesday.
Of course Mike Visaya couldn't leave well enough alone and had to comb through his college archives to respond with this photo and email:
Oh, those college memories!
Nice work, Kim. Maybe you better tag out and give Elizabeth a shot. That cheap husband of yours has been rolling the dice on amateur haircare for as long as I've known him, so he had to know he'd come up snake-eyes someday. Still, it's hard to believe you actually gave him a worse haircut then the combined team of Stu, Hadley, Okell and Foss (observe archive photo below, circa 1988). Big presentation, eh? I'm sure he'll be fine, but here are my suggestions:
- Make the presentations sideways, like in Alfred Hitchcock Presents (but make sure he goes with the left side).
- Tell them he's trying to preserve his hair buy applying centuries-old crop rotation techniques.
- "I pity the fool that makes fun of my hair."
- Touch up the damage so it looks look like a Seattle Seahawk (they're 4-1 right now, so I'm sure people will understand).
- Two words: Do Rag.
