All I asked for is a haircut. A simple haircut. No complexities. A simple medium cut.
But, no I don’t get that. I deserve better. Who decides that? Not me, but my barber! He justifies to me why I shouldn’t get my hair cut the way I think it should be cut.
Is it really necessary to teach the customer always? Haircuts are personal preferences. A cup of coffee or a glass of juice is a personal preference. A car or a house even. We can suggest. But we should never try push it down their throats.
A customer may be wrong about her choices. But it is still her choice. As a salesman, I have no right to breach that. I can be happy only if my customer is happy.
Finally, I figured that if I let my barber touch my hair again, he is gonna screw up more. So I got up and left. (After all, he is the one with the scissor and razor in hand!)
