Smooth Operator…

Now I appreciate it’s not unusual to see female commuters applying their make-up while sat on a train/tube on their way to work, some even manage such a ritual while driving. But as I was travelling by train to Waterloo yesterday morning I saw a guy shaving!Smooth Operator

I was sat there and I could hear this vibrating sound… getting slightly excited I looked up and there was this guy with a portable shaver, sharing a part his habitual ablutions.

I have to say I found it hard not to stare, but then I thought anyone who’s going to shave in public can deal with the looks… and may even quite like it.

I remember exchanging a silent laugh with another female traveller; we both thought it was quite odd to witness.

The funny thing is it took him such a long time, I’m not exaggerating he sat there for 10 minutes, tracing the action of the shaver with his fingers until he felt sufficiently smooth. Surely it would have taken less time to wet shave in the privacy of his bathroom.

I guess I should be thankful for small mercies… he wasn’t a back, sac, and crack guy!
