You ‘KNOW’ You’re Traveling Too Much… Posted on 2011/02/03 by OldNFOMarch 6, 2013 When you go into a barber shop to get a hair cut and you’re asked, “Do you want your usual”? And the barber shop is in Japan… Just sayin… Share this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)
Sad but funny.
The places you’ll see and the people you’ll meet…
Yeah, but the guy in Italy cut it too high above the ears last time. Can you go easy?
Having lived out of a suitcase for 6 years when I was a Field Service Engineer, I can definitely relate to that!
Met a lot of good people at the job sites I traveled to, and got treated like family at a couple of places I went to frequently.
Julie/Gerry/Supi- Yep… in a sad way…
DB- Point 🙂
Keads/jim- Yep… sigh…
I started cutting the FodGuy’s hair when we were down in Mexico, ’cause he can’t “trill”, so going to a barber there was …………… problematic.
I’d feel sorry for you, if I weren’t such a gypsy at heart – the last 6 years have been HE## on my wanderlust ……………… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE9vc2cO170
SS- kinda… sorta… sigh…
DM- I hear what you’re sayin, but after 40 years of ‘wandering’, I’d kinda like a life; one that doesn’t involve flight attendants, hotels, rental cars, etc…
Well its kinda like this.
I took the mans money and he pointed they way.
Never got to see the tooth under the pillow, never got to the recital, missed some graduations.
Was it worth it? No.
Could I have made the same money at home? No.
The haircut experience in Korea was much better IMHO. I’m a bit old school, but recall the experiences. “Do you want your usual” has a far more meaningful point to it.
The whole wide world is your home.
It’s even worse if he asked it in Japanese!
Skip- Concur 100%, but I ‘think’ I’m making a difference, that is the ONLY reason I’m still doing this…
LL- Heard that 🙂
ADM- Where ever the bag is… 🙂
Pamela- Nope, she knows my Japanese is lousy!
Thank you for doing what needs to be done.The travel and your service.
Yeah, that is when you know you travel way too much.
