I learned about haircuts in Maine the day I came here to close on my home purchase in Oct 2011.
I stopped at the Ridgetop diner on the way and observed the locals. I was in need of a trim at the time and noticed a neat “do” on an older guy who appeared to be a yankee farmer, so I complimented his on his nice haircut and inquired as to the location of the Barber Shop.
“Ain’t none right around heah. Motha… keeps the clippahs… in th’ cubbahhd”
I about fell off my stool at the counter and stopped and purchased a set of clippers on my way home from the closing and haven’t been to a barber since. It still makes me laugh good and long whenever I retell this story.
