The Hairdresser Test

Recommended Posts

I've seen quite a few people mention on various threads that when you hear someone in the hairdresser talking about their wonderful decision to invest in an asset then you know it's time to get out. Imagine my delight when exactly this happened to me on Saturday. I was having my haircut, barely able to suppress a huge grin, as the guy in the next chair loudly boasted about his astute investment in a BTL. Sign of the times, straw in the wind...or what?

I think for the test to work it needs to actually be the hairdresser who says they're investing - not a customer !!

Ah well, what a pity, never mind. But if ever I do get a barber saying so I'll keep quiet til they've finished cutting.

Oh bugger! I'll never know now, 'cause I bought one of these:

:o:(

You guys will promise to tell me when the crash is on, right? <_<

Forty quid? You were had, mate. You can get professional hair clippers down your local street market or bargain store for about £12.50.

That's what I use to trim my beard. Perfect!

Actually I paid fifteen quid in the Boots sales before XMAS.

What about the one in Police Squad? He seemed quite knowledgeable.

Of course, all HPCers could go out and buy a stool, a tin of polish and become de facto shoeshine boys thereby bringing this self-fulfilling prophecy to reality! :blink:

Wouldn't they have to buy a BTL as well, though? ;)

My hairdresser was going on about what a bad idea it was going into buy to let and how many of his friends has suffered negative equity in the last crash.... I was pretty suprised at his knowledge.

My hairdresser was grumbling about how he doesn't have enough money to spend. But then again, it was my 9 yr old nephew. :lol:

Like ****** I'm spending £10 on getting a crew cut when my nephew can cut it for free.
