My haircutter told me that it wasn't a big deal, since it gave her time to eat dinner; so I felt a little better about it and scheduled a new appointment. Now I just have to hope that she doesn't take revenge with the scissors. I guess I survived the ear attack from the Dutch barber; so I can probably handle any minor retaliation.
All of this being late made me think that the bus would be at least 50% more efficient if they made better use of the doors. For instance, when it's "pay as you leave", new riders should board the bus through the back doors while people pay the driver on their way out. A few drivers do this, but most don't, which makes it all the more annoying.
Also: the other day Seattlest mentioned something about bus token machines at bus stops [#], which is so completely ingenious that it should be put into practice immediately.
