I walked into the barbershop today and noticed there were 2 people in front of me. I went to sit down and wait my turn when all of a sudden Vito, the owner, comes over and says to me... "Thisa my nephew... he cut you hair." So I shake the young fellow's hand and say to Vito... "Has he ever cut hair before, Vito?" "No... you be his first!" So I sit in the chair and the kid (not me) is all nervous and excited. I tell him to take it easy and both of us will make it through the ordeal. I look over at Vito and say... "Hey Vito... did you tell your nephew here that I was your first customer when you first started here?" "Yes sir and I'm still in business... that's why I wanted you to be his first!" So the young guy gives me a haircut. A little slow and careful but otherwise a decent haircut. I got to admit at the end when he put the shaving cream on my neck and brought the straight razor over, I had the arms of the barber chair in a strangle hold. But that even turned out good. The haircut is usually $14 and I figured I'd give the kid a $5 tip as his first customer. Vito takes care of the cash register so I hand him a $20 bill. He says the haircut is on the house but if I would give the kid a tip that would be OK. I thank Vito and go over to the kid and hand him a $10 bill and tell him to loosen up, learn from your Uncle Vito and I'll see you next time. Everybody has to get experience somehow... right?
