I have a sneaking suspicion one of the female members of my household does the same thing Whirls Razor blades cost about ten quid for for a mach3 type, and when I get to it after some other person than myself has been "at it" I feel like my face has been bloody peeled!!
I usta use those posh razor blades then the prices got silly, one buys those Bic fling away ones now,they are only good for one shave IMHO, but what the hell,tiz only a quid for a plastic sack of em. Never understood these parsimonious bastiges that like to brag about the number of shaves they get out of a blade.
Pallet for pallet, razor blades is the single most valuable load on the road. We have been heartily laughed at when approaching razor blade companies for work. Seems that anything below chieftan tank is unsuitable for delivering razor blades.
Shaving foam chap meself, one bought some of that gel stuff by mistake once yuck!! tiz like smearing cold slime on ones face, makes one shudder to think of it. Hmm one is still to mean to fling it away though,one keeps it in case of emergencies.
Yes, a pet rant of mine, the price of razor blades! How can the manufacturers charge those prices for a sliver of metal and a bit of plastic. Yes, I know it's the most nicked item from supermarkets, but surely there's a better way. In Greece they keep them in a locked container at the checkout, and you have to ask for them. The argument is surely, that if they weren't so ridiculously expensive in the first place, such precautions wouldn't be necessary. And just to put a feminine perspective on this, I also happen to think the price of tampons is equally ridiculous, considering how they're made. I have worked in the paper industry, and I know how much they cost to make, and it's nowhere near the price they charge! Problem is, us fellas can't find an alternative use for them... (Yeah I know there's a bit in the SAS manual, but how often to you use that?).
(There's an episode of Sex and the City where one of the men is seen to be using a tampon...Season 6 (final one) i think, when Miranda's ex "Steve" walks in on Miranda and current boyfriend in bed...was funny...)
