It’s all over the news that John Edwards, who normally I admire, got a $400 haircut.Â He says that he just didn’t ask the price and he should have!Â I bet he should have.
As a cat, of course, I don’t have to worry about this $400 haircut thing because, well, I don’t get haircuts.Â Rumor has it that Hilary claimed the same thing.Â However, I am not just not recalling ever having a haircut. I’m a cat–I don’t get hair cuts. I had my belly shaved once when I was spayed and while that was expensive, it wasn’t $400.
I’m less concerned that John Edwards paid $400 because he didn’t ask how much a hair cut was than I am with the fact that one has to ask how much a haircut is otherwise one will be charged $400.Â What do you get with a $400 haircut?Â Was his hair trimmed with solid gold scissors? Â Was it washed in ultra pure water with a shampoo containing rare products from rain forests?Â It’s not as if he had anything fancy on the styling.Â It bothers me that anyone thinks that anyone–no matter who they are–should have to pay $400 for a haircut!
