    Had that happen before. I keep mine short enough so a razor can be an option in such an event.

    Happened to me once while recovering from a surgery leaving me unable to walk to CVS for a replacement.

    Tried to finish with a razor in the shower and irritated my scalp something awful, still didn’t go in public for a week.

    Lesson learned.

    .

    My father used to say the only difference between a good and a bad haircut is two weeks.

    Put a hat on and you'll be ok until then.

    The beard trimmer dying on me a year back wasn't good. I looked like a local loony visiting my superstore to buy a new one lol.

    Order one on Amazon and it'll be there tomorrow. Or take it apart and clean it. Try again.

    Reminds me of when I once went into a convenience store, all disheveled, looking for a comb. Rather embarrassing.

    The way things are nowadays I don't think anyone will notice or care if you walk around like that.

    According to Amazon I bought this Andis clippers in 2012. It has been bulletproof. I cut my hair once a month or so, it's paid for itself 20x over. My heirs will probably fight over it.

    Made in America too.

    I’m surprised no one mentioned this, how close are we talking here if not too close then...

    It happened to me many times, and although mine is permanently short it's still obvious when half trimmed. I just go to the razor and it all comes off and start again
