We don't get to see the haircut? How can we possibly know whether it's worth a 911 call?

Here's a hint: No haircut is a911 call. It's just hair, it will grow back.

I watched the first video to see the Karen.  The second one I watched just to listen to that guy's accent.

Theoretically there's a haircut bad enough to warrant a 911 call. Theoretically.

it's the one where the stylist/barber accidently snips an entire earlobe off a squirmy kid, isn't it?

Is there a way for that woman to be charged with misuse of the 911 system? Because if there's not, there should be.

It's sidewalls with a number #2 clipper and long on top. That's not too short.

a) The kid asked for #2 on top. The guy [claims he] told the kid "that's really short" and the kid (17!) said that's what he wanted.

b) When you're dealing with young men's hair, a buzz cut is always the backup if you screw up. It'll be back to normal in like three weeks.

That's what I was thinking. It's definitely illegal to prank call 911. This is not very different.

[short hair csb]

So in high school my hair was below my shoulders and I had purple Liberty spikes. I accidentally wound up on the debate team, really enjoyed it, and after the first tournament I decided I wanted a suit and a GQ. I pulled up in front of my parent's house sporting slacks, a dress shirt, and a fresh haircut. My mom said she didn't recognize me and wondered who was driving her son's car.

One time when I donated my hair, the hairstylist didn't listen to me as to how to cut it, so the donation was wasted. Not nice.

Then she cut my hair so short in the back that my friend who went to the appointment with me made me promise not to look at it in a mirror for at least 6 months. (And then went back inside and gave the shop a few pieces of her mind.)

Just a 911 call?  I was fairly certain she would have murdered the barber where he stood.

She might have better served calling her Doctor about her overly tight sphincter.

Looks like she hasn't pooped since 1987.

In a second video, Rocco explains that her son came into his barbershop, requesting a "high and tight" cut.

He said the 17-year-old requested the top of his head be cut with a number 2 clipper.



Karen, the boy is 17. STFU.
Dude, you are 17. Why is your mom going to the barber with you?

Article states that the teen requested a #2 on top. #2 guard is 1/4", which is really quite short. What a shiat head.

Poor kid. His hair will grow back, but his mom is a nightmare.
 
2021-09-19 2:03:49 PM  
"I literally stop and go, bro, a No. 2 is real short," Rocco informed viewers. He said the woman's son reassured him that was what he wanted, said nothing throughout the haircut, and even tipped him at the end.

Sounds like the son knew exactly what he wanted and his overly-controlling the mom is just being a huge pain in the ass.

I don't get what is up with these fully grown adults thinking they can call an EMERGENCY line for small claims type shiat, like did their parents never teach them correct 911 usage or something?

She didn't, dude.

I think the kid got just the reaction he was hoping for. Back in the day it was a mohawk. Today, kids practically have to scalp themselves to get a "OH MY GOD YOUR HAIR!!!" out of their parents. Sad.

The kid is 17, the hair grows back.

In the early 90s I went to a supercuts. Hey, $6 haircut, can't beat that. Right?  About 3/4 the way through I notice her graduation certificate on the wall dated 3 days before, then me in the mirror.  Yeah, this isn't going well.  I get home and my wife says, No way, you have to go back and buzz cut this atrocity right now. Supercuts honored my request, no extra cost, no lawsuit, no 911.  Surprise, the hair grew back, though I never went to supercuts again.

It's a high and tight where the customer requested a No 2 for the top. A No. 2 cuts hair down to 6mm (1/4 in). The kid might be trying to replicate how he sees a lot of people in the military keep their hair.

The kid's hair looks like this, top maybe a bit shorter, now:

My mom used to tell me that the difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is about one week. Then she would proceed to give me the most god-awful haircut known to man...
