Tough times at the Barber Shop

Terry the barber reports people are spacing their haircuts further apart.

Terry cuts hair in downtown Portland, Oregon, in the basement of the local Wells Fargo headquarters. He's been around for a while and has a good client base. He isn't losing many customers (a few, but not many), but his business is down 20-25% and he attributes it to people letting their hair go a little longer between cuts.

He's philosophical. But he left my hair a little longer than last time. Maybe two weeks longer. No fool there.
