Where do I begin...?


This crazy flyer was sent in by the lovely LadyStyx. She says: This one isn't much but since it was on a flyer that was MAILED TO COUNTLESS HOUSES in the Manassas area, I thought I'd send it along. On the flip side of the flyer, they managed to spell the street name right. Yet on the side with the ad printed they only managed to get a 50% success rating. Granted it's the smaller of the two, but wouldn't you think that they'd at least manage to get it spelled the same (correctly or not) when it's printed on the same side of the card? I'm just sayin'...

Very good points, LadyStyx! But unfortunately, that's not all that's wrong with the flyer...

* Haircuts is one word. Or at least it should be...sigh.

* "Man's Coloring" just sounds kinda awkward here, doesn't it?

* Is it $7.99 for a man or a boy, or for a man or boy to get a haircut? If it's just $7.99 for a man or a boy, that could be a very good deal, depending on the pool of men to choose from. If that's the case, I'll ask for Josh Holloway and Joe Mauer, please...getting both of them for under twenty bucks would be the bargain of the century! ;)

Thanks, LadyStyx, for finding this amusing flyer!

And I'm looking at this thinking there's some serious inequality going on here. Just because I have boobs I have to pay more for a haircut or coloring? Shouldn't price be based on length of hair not gender? I know guys that have more hair than I do.

I love it, too! It's so bad, but so darn hilarious. :)

Very good point, April! You're absolutely right; price should be determined by length of hair. Unless they're simply charging more for women's haircuts because females are fussier about their hair than men are...? :)

No problem. This one literally fell in my lap and I simply could NOT resist. You'd think with a business that will be sending out mail, they'd hire someone with a decent command of the English language. Then again, I have to remember where I am.

My question to you is--do you dare to have someone at that place cut your hair? (If you happen to go there, please do let me know if they sell actual MEN in their store...) ;)

LadyStyx said...

Hell no. I've never stepped foot in their store no matter HOW cheap their prices are. Cheap places like that never do my hair correctly.

Wouldn't go there for a man either. Men that cheap can't possibly be any good. Comes across as "Cheap men, cheaply" if you ask me!

I go to the Hair Cuttery which is a 5-10 minute walk from my house. It costs an arm and a leg for a color and cut (not to mention he keeps me hostage for 3 hours...), but my stylist is well worth it. My hair always looks FABULOUS when he's done.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Good for you for a) avoiding the cheap haircut place and b) for being patient enough to sit in a chair for a few hours to get your hair done! I am far less patient than you and, despite the fact that I would love to try a million different colors for my hair, I haven't colored mine in years because I literally cannot SIT STILL long enough, haha. :)

Hair cuts...maybe they cut each hair multiple times?

If it's only $7.99 for a man, you definitely would not be getting someone like Josh Holloway, lol. You'd probably get someone more along the lines of Larry The Cable Guy.

*Makes a note to never get my hair cut in Man Asses*

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ew! I would NOT wanna git 'er done with HIM, haha.

"Man asses"! Too funny! :D
