I'll find if they jacked up their prices in Manitoba when I go tomorrow for a haircut.

$15 buzz cut, no increase, but $2 if they supply you a mask. Gave him $20, and to keep the change...

I cut my own hair when I had the coronavirus. I will let it grow out another week before I get a proper haircut.

I think I'm gonna cut my own hair. No one can ever cut my hair the way I want anyway. It will be difficult in the back, but it should be fun!

Will this be the first time you ever attempted to cut your hair Berry?

Is it because you are afraid of catching the virus?

No. I use to cut my own hair in my 20's, did my own bangs too. Then I turned into a mom and didn't have time.

I have really long hair and it's wavy...it's hard to find a good stylist...I'm artsy fartsy and it should turn out fine.

I'm not worried about the virus...I've been working and doing errands the entire time and I never got sick. I will be keeping an eye on the news and watching the numbers.

How about you, are you worried about the virus?

I don't want to catch it, but if I do, I do..

Without a vaccine, most of us will eventually catch it..

If I do get the virus, I'll avoid seeing my mother and my mother in law face to face..

We'll be fine.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm immune to flu viruses? Last time I had the flu, I was 7 years old. I remember being very sick but after that, I never got it again. I don't get flu shots either. Same with the chicken pox, never got them...my parents made me hang out with kids who had them, and I never got it. I'm lucky if I catch the common cold. I'm a smoker and a midnight toker too, so really bizarre.

Apparently smokers are more likely to have mild symptoms of COVID.

I haven't paid $15 in a long time. I pay $25. I'll find out today if it's gone up.

Yeah, I read they are more of a target. I have to wear a mask and gloves at work, but I go out for smokes and to be honest, I don't sanitize my hands like they recommend, I don't wash my clothes immediately when I get home, I don't lysol or bleach my place. I mean, I clean like normal but I don't go out of my way to panic clean. I'm fine.

One thing I've always done and will continue to do, is not touch public door handles if possible, I use my shoulder, elbow or foot to open a door...not cause of tge virus, cause I don't know what sexual infections people have, how often they are touching themselves and what they are spreading...to me thats more gross than the covid.

I mean, who knows...I go to the store to buy smokes and who knows what dude before me touched the door handle and was jacking off on his drive to the store with a dirty penis....that runs thru my mind more than covid.

Thank you for reporting back. My haircut place was only charging $19 before. I guess its fair that they raise the price.

When I use public washroom I see that some men just don't bother washing their hands. There could be pee on their hands. When I exit the washroom I have to use paper towel to open the door. I hate how some washrooms don't provide paper towels. So called eco friendly hand air dryer. I wash my hands and I touch the door handle and my hand is soiled again.

Berry sweet you grow mangoes in your home? I remember you were growing some kind of fruit. I'm thinking of growijg mangoes. Some people say it'll grow to be too big for indoor.

You think it's fair because of the lower number of chairs that can be utilized? Perhaps because it takes more time now that the chair, scissors and clippers must be sanitized after every customer?
