Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?
Most of the jobs I've had required me to be clean shaved. I'd grow beards when I could. When I got out of active duty after 8 years, I drove a cab in Atlantic City. I grew that thing out till I could part waters or star on the cough drop box and carried 4 d cell flash light. Never doubt the power of a weird appearance. I never got robbed.
Once I was done with uniform jobs, the beard is back for good, though I keep it trimmed short. Great camo in duck season.
