Never cut your hair where they don't speak you language !!

After one year of not cutting my hair here in Thailand,I thought its time to do it ! and wish i didn't ! No I didn't keep it long because I was afraid of going to the barbershops here,i kept my hair long for years,but one important reason for keeping it long here is not trusting Thai barbershops ! i know its silly and stupid :p

So I called a friend who has been living here for quite long time now,I asked him where does he cut his hair,he said come to my place tomorrow ,there is a nearby place !So i went today morning , too excited & too early ! :d he was still sleeping,so he just gave me the directions and i went on my own. Most of the shops were closed ! to realize ,ITS SUNDAY ! :/ - i have a Friday,Saturday,Sunday "weekend" problem ! :d - but there were two opened places i could see. so i thought okay,lets try one of them.

I entered the 1st place,there was no one ,but a dog :/ who came running toward me,I hate and scared of dogs :D - off topic fact : there are dogs in Bangkok ten times the number of cats in Amman - ,so i closed the door fast and went to the other place thinking "what a happy day !!!"

I opened the door of the second place and once i walked in,the owner -a woman- freaked out and put her angry face on and started waving me to get out and kept repeating "no ,no,may mee may mee " :/ i stepped outside and i was shocked!wut da hell did i do wrong !so i tried miming from behind the glass that i wanna cut my hair :/ and she wouldn't let me in !!!!!! wut da hell I'm really curious why were she that angry :D.

ANYWAY,I found another one ,the girl on the reception saluted me in English -good good- ,i sat down on the chair,and the barber came holding his scissors and inspecting my face ,before he asked i said "Jordan,I'm from Jordan".he didn't respond ! i thought he was just another angry person ,with the angry dog and angry woman it only makes sense to complete the set ! but NO,the man didn't speak English !

I tried explaining to him what i want,and how long i want the hair to be,he nodded ,i felt comfortable "Okay! Miming works!" ,basically ,he started with from the TOP of my head,which isn't how its done in Jordan ! but i thought : to each their own ! maybe thats how its done here !when my hair went too short from the top,i knew its not gonna be a happy cut !

In short,it took two hours,and i got angry,and cursed and cursed in Arabic - its been a while - , i pulled my hair ,I called my friend who didn't pick up!all i wanted is to get the barber to just make it the same length on every side ! but the man was scared,and wutever i tried to explain ,he'd just nod ,nod,nod ,come to execution?he didn't get a thing !

It was miserable,miserable day ,i don't care about how i look right now,I'm happy that i walked out with little hair still on my head . and i will NEVER cut my hair except in Amman ! :/

You shouldn't be complaining at all, you look much better after the cut...

Same thing happened with me on the way to Lebanon..I had a day in Athens and decided to have a hair cut to look good for Beirut, what a disaster that was !!
So your hair cut is not bad..na3eeman :)
