Everyone’s talking about the prices and no one’s talking about how a man spent nearly an ENTIRE CENTURY dedicated to his craft of cutting hair. A legend…


$.25 for a haircut and shave sounds like a good deal until you remember he was 12 at the time. I can’t imagine letting a 12-year-old anywhere near my head and face with sharp objects. I’d gladly pay the $.40 premium price for an adult barber.


A follow up fact…he was still driving at 108 years old! I met him when he got into a fender bender and I called the cops and his son for him. The police officer told me that his license scan came up as an error because the system didn’t recognize ages that were 3 digits.
