I'm such an idiot....(way ot)

I woke up hoping I was just dreaming doing this last night....but, alas, I looked at Wayne this morning and it's true....I shaved a giant bald spot on his head....
Do I use the crying emoticon or the laughing one?!? Omg...I always buzz his hair shorter for him to save money...cuz his hair grows so fast (Thank God this time! lol)...so I buzzed it all over and then took the attchment off so it cut super close and did around his neck where it's always uneven.....well the major putz that I am went to re-buzz quickly all over to make sure his hair was cut evenly and what did I do??? That's right, I didn't put the damn attachment back on and did a huge (I'm talking 2 inch by 4 inch) bald line right up the side of his freakin head. I bawled like a baby I felt so bad. And until he looked in the mirror he actually thought I was kidding! :confused:
So he tries to be nice and says "oh my.....well....at least my hair grows fast..." ....then I remind him we leave in a week and 2 days for his niece's wedding...:( ugh, I still feel like such a complete idiot. I can't believe I did that to him when he's going to see his family for the 1st time in almost 3 years...
We went straight to the mall (with a crappy old hat from home) and bought him a UFC cap he liked...but obviously he can't wear that to the wedding....he's not even a hat person. lol. oh man...I still don't know whether to laugh or cry....poor guy.....

laugh, don't cry! at least his hair grows fast. I'm sure in a week it will be fine, you'll just need to even out his hair then.

my roommate asked me to trim her hair in college ... I couldn't cut it straight and ended up chopping several inches off. so not a trim! anyhow, it happens to the best of us!

Give it a week to grow and then you can maybe put a short guard on it and even it out some. I did that DH once, b/c I used to cut his longer, and he actually liked it better. Now, I just run over his whole head like a lawn mower!

It'll be ok

That reminds me of one time back when I was still dating DH, he got the bright idea for his brother and I to cut his hair. ???? Well, each of us started on one side near his temple (mind you this was cutting with scissors, not shaving) and when we got to the back my side was almost an inch shorter than his brother's side. OOPS! LMAO.

so he's a lot more mad about it today :s I guess it finally sunk in...maybe he thought it would magically grow back a noticeable amount over night? I dunno...so he's saying he's not mad at me but is being a little snarky to me so I'm just staying out of the way. I'd be mad too so I sure can't blame him.lol...though no matter how mad he was he wouldn't dream of shaving my head in retaliation!!...what a jerk that guy sounds like Tia!
He says "hell no" to taking a picture. I've informed his niece who is getting married and she can't stop laughing...and i told her 4 hours ago. LOL
Too bad the wedding isn't here...people don't care what others look like NEARLY as much as they do in the town where he's from....I got made fun of all the time in England so I know what he's worried about. And it is REALLY bad looking....almost black hair with a thick strip of bald. lol

oh well...we'll see how he goes on and get it fixed the night before we leave.

oh and wanna hear the kicker? The 12mm attachment that I missed putting back on?? When I went to put it away the plastic was so weak it fell apart!.... I could've been off the hook if I had put it on and it split and fell off while shaving! lol

Sad I'm sorry girl, but it was certainly an accident, so please don't beat yourself up. I shaved a bald spot on Scott's head once too....not quite that big, but I still felt awful. Thankfully it DOES grow, and they're guys, so it's not nearly as bad as if it'd have happened to us.
