I have true cheapskate tendencies. Now I am not too cheap to actually buy things but once I buy them I WILL extract every cent of value out them.
I won't spit out gum till the flavor is GONE! Etc etc.
So I tend to use the same razor blade too long. I pulled a fresh blade out of the medicine cabinet and started shaving and as I took the first stroke down my jawbone I was like WOW!! That is like shaving glass, it is sooo smooth and frictionless! Second stroke, "Man I got quit using these blades for so long. I forgot how nice a new blade feels!"
Then I noticed that where the shaving cream was gone I still had prominent whiskers sticking up? Huh?
Oh. Take the little plastic guard off the blade and lets try this again.
